I don't know if you'll remember everything we do here tonight. 'Cause things pass, things move on, people get older. But I want you to know that tonight there is a point. I'm asking myself that question all the time, "What's the point? What's the point of homework, what's the point of school, what's the point of jobs, what's the- what's the point of all those things? What's the point of life? What's the point of music?".
I don't know if you've ever put headphones in and pretended that you were the main character of your own movie before. But music can do something to you. Have you ever seen someone talk on stage before?
One time, I was at a church, and there was a guy talking on stage. And I didn't really know what he was saying, but what he was saying seemed to be so epic, and amazing, and probably true, right? But what I realize, when I look over and there's a lady playing the piano underneath his voice. And when you play music underneath someone talking it's like the most amazing thing ever. But when it stops- it's really awkward when it stops.
There's a point. Music can do something to you. It can make it more emotional.
There's a point here tonight, I'm not just playing songs, I'm not just playing shows. We wanna do something with you, we wanna a moment with you. And if you wanna sing it out, if you want to close your eyes, you can do whatever you want. This is your show.
