Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essentail to your own.

There was no way that I wanted to be the singer. The band that we followed at the time was The Strokes and they seemed too cool for school in every way. I didn’t feel I could live up to that. Even when I finally got round to writing my own lyrics I had this sense of dread that the others would laugh me out of the room… I never thought I’d get past that, to be honest.
