As anyone who knows me already knows, I’m constantly pinging lyrics. Sometimes all it takes is a single word in a conversation, sometimes it’s conversational cadence and, most often, it’s emotional sub-text that drags up some or other lyrical monster from the depths of my psyche and my soul.

These are not my words, but they are the words that inspire me, by the writers who have made me the writer I am and, at least to some extent, the man I am today.
