'Everything Has Changed' is a song that I wrote with Ed Sheeran, and he is such a talented person, in so many ways. He's such an incredibly talented guitar player, and singer, and songwriter, and performer. Writing this song with him was so much fun because, you know, we were sitting in my backyard writing the song and he started singing harmony on it and I asked if he would record it with me as a duet, because it's about this moment that both people are having where they see each other and all of the sudden, the world looks different. 'Cause everything changed.
You and I both know there’s got to be some greater storyline for you than ‘girl gets heart broken, was sad forever’. I think a nice one would be ‘girl gets heart broken, was sad for a while but in her heartbreak she found freedom, friends, and the ability to look back and laugh at all she’d learned. She now lives her life on her own terms and still has fantastic hair.’
As I grow older, I hope I can continue to rely on gut feelings and continue to be self-aware. Self-awareness is usually the first thing to go when people lose touch. So ideally I can keep my wits about me.
