  2. 2. ‘Speak now orforever holdyour peace, ’the words saidby preachers at the end of weddingceremonies all over the world, right beforethe vows. It’s a last chance for protest, amoment that makes everyone’s heart race, and amoment I’ve always been strangely fascinated by. Somany fantasize about bursting into a church, saying whatthey’d kept inside for years like in the movies. In reallife, it rarely happens.Real life is a funny thing, you know. In real life, sayingthe right thing at the right moment is beyond crucial.So crucial, in fact, that most of us start to hesitate, forfear of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. Butlately what I’ve begun to fear more than that is lettingthe moment pass without saying anything.I think most of us fear reaching the end of our life, andlooking back regretting the moments we didn’t speak up.When we didn’t say ‘I love you. ’ When we should’ve said‘I’m sorry. ’ When we didn’t stand up for ourselves orsomeone who needed help.These songs are made up of words I didn’t say whenthe moment was right in front of me. These songs areopen letters. Each is written with a specific person inmind, telling them what I meant to tell them in person.To the beautiful boy whose heart I broke in December.To my first love who I never thought would be my firstheartbreak. To my band. To a mean man I used to beafraid of. To someone who made my world very dark fora while. To a girl who stole something of mine. To someoneI forgive for what he said in front of the whole world.PrologueWordscan breaksomeone into a millionpieces, but they canalso put them backtogether. I hope you use yours for good, becausethe only words you’ll regret more than the ones leftunsaid are the ones you use to intentionally hurt someone.What you say might be too much for some people. Maybeit will come out all wrong and you’ll stutter and you’ll walkaway embarrassed, wincing as you play it all back in yourhead. But I think the words you stop yourself from sayingare the ones that will haunt you the longest.So say it to them. Or say it to yourself in the mirror.Say it in a letter you’ll never send or in a book millionsmight read someday. I think you deserve to look back onyour life without a chorus of resounding voices saying ‘Icould’ve, but it’s too late now. ’There is a time for silence. There is a time waiting yourturn. But if you know how you feel, and you so clearly knowwhat you need to say, you’ll know it.I don’t think you should wait. I think you shouldspeak now.PS: To all the boys who inspired this album,you should’ve known. ;)love,
