dear Alison, out of all the shows that I’ve ever been to, and out of all the times I’ve seen you, I’ve never left a venue feeling as happy to be anybody’s fan as i did the other night. thank you for deciding to blow my mind and thank you for letting me make you smile. i’ll never forget those couple of moments when i was on your mind. love, Alex

i resented you the minute you got here. after all, you were following a tough act. and like i predicted, you didn’t hold a candle to the previous year. we didn’t get off to a good start since within a month, you broke up my favorite band, and not long after that, made steve carell leave the office and gave me an awful experience with hallucinogenic drugs. and after that, you gave me the worst summer ever. however, you let me high five jimmy fallon. and you let billy corgan give me his guitar pick. and you opened the doors of powerline tattoo. and you introduced me to people who are making me a better artist. and you gave me potato. and you let my family accept and welcome someone who, a year ago, didn’t stand a chance. and you let me get where i wanted by not letting me give up, even after i was told no. and nooked in between those events, were at least a dozen moments that i wouldn’t have traded for anything. so, i’m glad you’re leaving, but i’m also glad you were here.
