Dear 20-year-old Montero,
I wrote a song for us. I know sometimes you feel like it’s all downhill from here. I know that your sexuality has made you feel like an outcast among your peers. I know that going from having the greatest song in the world to being stuck in your apartment weighs heavily on you. And I know if you hear the phrase ‘one hit wonder’ one more time, you could burn. But I need you to move on. I need you to realize that you have the opportunity to be the person you needed to grow up. I need you to stop feeling sorry for yourself. And I need you to remember that the only person who has to believe in YOU is YOU. “
