1"Who knows? Songwriting is a very mysterious process. It feels like creating something from nothing. It's something I don't feel like I really control. I'm never sure if: 1) I'll ever write another song, 2) what the song will be about and 3) if what initially sparked the beginning of a song might complete it. Some things remain fragments, just the lyrics and melodies or a line or two or a verse. I often write either really early in the morning, just when I'm waking up, or really late at night. "You're the One" was a song that came to me in the morning. I woke up on my birthday, March 30, and wrote that song." - When asked 'What was the inspiration behind "You're the One?"'
