I look back at songs I wrote early on and I couldn’t have written them now, but songs that I’m writing now, I couldn’t have written when I was younger. I mean, that’s the thing about writing an honest song; you’re writing from your own subjective experience, which is absolutely changing from moment to moment.- Jon Foreman.
