“Music can dig, it can take a shovel to your chest and just starts digging until it hits something.” Daisy
I felt like this entire book was a lot of raw emotion, and that the band was always digging deep for the right lyrics and meaningful songs. They wouldn’t even listen to their band members half the time for opinions because Daisy and Billy were so set on their own songs.
At one point Billy said: “You can hear the smile in her words.” He was constantly describing how Daisy would put so much of herself into the songs. You could determine her place in life based on the words and expression of them, and not on her looks or anything visual.
“It is what I have always loved about music. Not the sounds or the crowds or the good times as much as the words – the emotions, the stories, the truth – that you can let flow right out of your mouth.”
Her lyrics were her opportunity to be transparent with the world.
