Life takes its path and sometimes there are people to blame. Of course there are bad people in this world. Good, bad, it happens unfortunately. But in a way I think if there was more focus on the good, more good would happen.




I didn't have a particular persona. I'm not Alice Cooper, you know?




I love reality. I love the world. I love the smell of it. I love it.




Well, I did go to Irish dancing lessons as a kid, but I was slapped and never went again.




I could never dream of being cool.




There's a plain girl in everybody.




I go to churches to pray, but I don't go to mass.




Musicians are probably the most uncomfortable people in themselves in the world. Happiness, I think, only exists when you're a child and once you go past 11, unfortunately it's gone.




I hate people who splash their own pain on covers, like the whole world should hear about them. Why are we all supposed to be interested in one individual's suffering?




Life does throw some hard stuff at you as you get older, much harder. But you are more able to deal with things.




I have a high tolerance for discomfort.




We're all the same. We all want the same thing in life. Everybody going around like ants and we all want the same thing. And it's not one queen. It's not one queen with the wings.




I love watching people, and that's what I do; just go for a walk at about 4 o'clock, and go down a busy street, where you see people coming out of school and you get a glimpse of their lives, what they're talking about.




People are so busy anyway they don't see you or recognise you in the street.




I have no regrets.




I am wholesome.




I love escaping into character. It's a chance to try on people that you wouldn't be brave or stupid enough to be in real life.




You can't live in your own secluded world. If you're not on the Tube, on the bus doing normal things, how can you relate to people?




I think paranormal experiences are very personal, again, if they are that. Yes, sometimes I've felt that some things I would personally believe enough for me to take action on it... like, you know, I felt something happen in a hotel once that made me never stay there again.




I really love singing.




All I care is that my family, and my loved ones, understand me. Or that they understand me to a degree - I don't understand me very much. And I don't need the world to understand me. That is the most egocentric thing.




Everybody gets too drunk sometimes; and even if everybody didn't, I have gotten too drunk sometimes. I haven't hurt anybody. In Ireland we drink a lot. It's part of our culture. I like drinking. I don't think it's a bad thing.




I think everybody had difficulties with that dynamic, turning the family into a band and being constantly together. So everybody, as individuals. had things to sort out.




I don't really live by plans.




Everything is nicer if you feel you're in love.




Other people sing in the shower, but I don't.
