"I didn’t want it to appear like a song to a child so I kept some sort of erotic tension. Again it’s this thing about the difference between knowledge and wisdom. Beware of knowingness. You sense with teenage girls this incredible pressure to be beautiful and to do well in their school. It is as if every waking moment the whole world is telling them what they’re not. I wanted to write a song about uniqueness. It’s worth remember that you probably have something the world really needs. Trying to discover what that might be is one of the challenges of life. But one way you will not discover it is by trying to be what you’re not."
