In my position, it’s my job to be emotional. Doctors cure diseases and shoemakers make shoes. It’s my job to go through emotions and describe them to other people.

But the bad thing is that every emotion I experience is public property. It’s good in a lot of ways, and in music, it’s great, but with love affairs, it becomes really tricky, because the nature of love affairs is very private.
