I'm not sure I've ever explained this here before.
Mickey expressed that thought to me quite a few times in several different ways through the years.
When I was writing his song, I chose the version that fit the best into the structure.

But, by far, the most chilling way he ever put it... and I say chilling because he said it to me as if he was passing along some deep dark warning:

"Don't write what you don't know because you'll live it out to prove to yourself you're not a liar".

I'll never forget the look in his eye on that occasion. I excused myself and went off to write it down word for word.
