“I have a tape recorder, and I just sing into it. I like to write that way. Sometimes I’ll just get melodic ideas, and then I’ll go home and sit down and add the lyrics. Or sometimes I’ll get a lyric idea that I love. Usually it’s pretty combined. Usually I get some kind of a lyrical concept and a melody and work with that.”
