- Q: When you die, what song would you like to be remembered by and why?
- John Mayer: As it stands now? "The Heart of Life". "Heart of Life" for me and lyrically is like flipping a coin and the quarter stopping on its edge and not falling. It's like, it doesn't go either way. People come up to me and go like "That's a depressing song" and then other people come up and say "That's the most uplifting thing I've ever heard." (2008)
Music can sing the emotions we never knew we had and speak the words we never said. Either way, music is a key to the soul that unlocks the forbidden secrets and emotions that we bury deep down.
