„The songwriting style, to me, is superior… there was a certain amount of joy in it, no matter how sad the song is.“

—  M. Ward

On songwriting styles of the post-World War II era, in an interview with Bob Boilen on All Songs Considered (17 November 2006) http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=15961159 (NPR)
Contexto: The songwriting style, to me, is superior... there was a certain amount of joy in it, no matter how sad the song is. You get joy in listening to these Buddy Holly or Roy Orbison sad lyrics. I'm attracted to songs that have balance between the darks and the lights and giving them all equal opportunity.

I've Learned Some Things (2008)
Contexto: Distant lands should draw you, people you don't know
To read every book, know other's lives, you should be burning
You shouldn't exchange for anything the pleasure of a glass of water
No matter how much the joy, your life should be filled with yearning
