"Songs remain a mystery and a miracle for me. Vocationally, I can’t think of a single thing I’d rather contribute to the world. Songs often know things the writer doesn’t even know. They accomplish things that mere mortals are unable to accomplish. They delight, remember, provoke, entertain, gladden, sadden, enflame, enrage, soothe, heal… The best songs outlive their authors and have an independent existence and purpose. These are the ones every song writer hopes to write."
