I’m working on a new song for a comp and as the lyrics came together, I realised that in the 41 years I’ve been writing songs, 90% of them have been me questioning why I feel things that “normal” people don’t.
At what stage do those of us who are different just accept our differences and stop holding ourselves to impossible metrics?
Me, idgaf. I learnt by the age of seven to ignore orthodoxy. You had to as an Indian kid in ’70s Britain.
I hope kids now have it easier.
