Sometimes the beauty is easy. Sometimes you don't have to try at all. Sometimes you can hear the wind blow in a handshake. Sometimes there's poetry written right on the bathroom wall.
I basically get stereotyped a lot in terms of being a girl and writing 'chick' music for teenage girls or something.
