I felt a kind of relief. I want my fans to picture me as being happy and I don’t actually want them to know that I feel that way, but now and then I feel the need to talk about what’s inside me.

It’s been a few years since I expressed it in a song or explained anything about it so I feel a tiny bit relieved.
