Famous quotes by James Blunt
In a way song writing can almost be detrimental, because suddenly you find an outlet that is a kind of cheating. You don't need to have direct communication. You can say, 'I can't describe it to you, but I will record it and send it to you.'James Blunt
You can't break my spirit, it's my dreams you take.James Blunt
