I think it's just about being honest with where you are at any given moment and really not trying to fake it. When people fake it it's obvious. As you grow older and have more experience your perspective changes and your lyrics and ideas should reflect that even if it sometimes compromises what you've said before. It's life and growing up is a huge part of it.
Thanks! Is the best way to get out of a dry spell to keep writing? Thanks again and I'll be seeing you in Philly!
