I put pressure on myself to be musically fresh, which is different from being trendy or being current. I like a fusion of sounds, just as long as it's funky.
I remember being five years old and it being like there was an orchestra in my mind and there was this soundtrack playing. I didn't know where it was coming from, but it was there. What I'm saying is that I tried on the pop hat for awhile and it was fun. But I'm ready to try new things.
When you meet people like that, you've got to really deliver. I like feeling like that like I've gotta hit it out of the park. Every time I pulled up to his studio, I felt like a little kid riding her bike over to a friend's house, saying, 'What are we going to play today?' I took the time to celebrate it. I knew that you can never recreate those moments. They happen once and they are gone.
I'm searching for things that I just cannot see / Why don't you don't you don't you come and be with me / I pretend to be cool with me, want to believe / That I can do it on my own without my heart on my sleeve / I'm running, I'm running, catch up with me life / Where is the love that I'm looking to find / It's all in me, can't you see, why can't you, why can't you see it's all in me
