“I didn't know how to say anything [back in 2010]. I didn't know how to keep a thought focused when I was young, and it kind of sounds like that. Like, it's tight or whatever, but it's just all over the place. I'm still figuring that sh*t out. I feel like that's probably my next thing – focusing more. Because I can do it when I'm writing. That's probably better for the music anyway, when it's more impulsive.”
