A Flawless Ending To An Interview With Jenny Lewis

From American Songwriter:

When it came to writing The Voyager, you were having a rough time.

A shit, shit time.

We all go through shit times.

All of us.

But not many of us have to relive these moments on stage, and think back to times where you’re hurting and have other people be entertained by them.

Yeah, it can be weird. The meaning of these songs change, though. Sometimes I don’t even know what I’m writing about when I’m writing about it. I’m speaking to something I don’t understand, until about five years later. A song, or different lines in a song, could also feel relevant for different reasons at different times.

That must be a trip.

Yeah, it’s a weird job.

Show business is weird.

Show business is weird.
