“You guys don’t need this crap, but I’m going to give it to you anyway. I can tell - I don’t know any of you that well, but I can see it in your faces because some of you have faces that remind me of what my face looked like when I was younger. And I see some of you young people out there and I remember how hard it is to be young, and I remember how hard it is to be rejected the first time when you’re young. So what I want you to do is close your eyes - and I can see you, so don’t cheat me here - close those eyes of yours, put ‘em real tight. And I want you to imagine the first person that broke your heart; the first person that didn’t like you back; the first person that said shitty stuff about you; the first person that dumped you; the first person that changed their phone number because you called them sixty-two times in one day; the first person that didn’t know how good you were, and they missed you…they passed you by. And I want you to imagine that person and then I want you to sing at the top of your fucking lungs. I want you to sing, and I want to heal that with you right now.”
