I realized one thing on my way home from the Grammy awards earlier today. I put on this one song that I really love, and damn, I really love that song. The lyrics just fits me, perfectly. I can identify with it. It gives me so much hope about life, that another person – who is a great artist – obviously carries around the same feelings that I do. It proves that I’m not the only one carrying these feelings. I feel connected to this artist and I love his work. His work makes my life easier.
The main reason I love to make music and release this music to the public is because I hope that someone else can connect to this, and sometimes feel the same way I do about things. And maybe I can help this person through the day. Maybe this person can put on our music on his / her way to work – and somehow feel that life isn’t so bad after all – because there is music in this world. That’s how I feel, when I listen to music.
If I have contributed to making even ONE person’s life easier by listening to our music, I feel that life is pretty much worth it, after all. And I feel that that’s exactly the reason why I’m still here. I really hope we’ve made a difference for people. I really hope that’s the case.
If it is, I’ll fall asleep like the happiest guy on earth tonight
