“Songwriting is about getting the demon out of me. It’s like being possessed. You try to go to sleep, but the song won’t let you.

So you have to get up and make it something, and then you’re allowed to sleep. So letting go is what the whole game is.

Every time you try to put your finger on it, it slips away.”

– John Lennon, songwriter, singer, composer, writer, musician
