Wow.

    Wow.

    I remember when this was every other band’s crowd. We opened the show and we got about 15 minutes each night to prove ourselves. The night’s that we spent wondering if anyone even cared enough to at least say hi when they passed by our merch booth on their way out the door. And all the times that I ended up just giving away t-shirts because counting dollars and change in front of people makes me nervous… it STILL makes me nervous.

    Now, when we drive up to venues, I see our band’s name on the marquee. The same band that practiced in Jeremy’s living room ‘til his parents said we needed to go home. A lot of times there’s already a line of people waiting for doors to open. And we always always get to play an encore. (Well, what do you expect when we save our biggest song for dead last, haha).

    Maybe I should’ve written this on Thanksgiving…? I feel so blessed, so empowered, and so loved by all of our fans. Thank you for giving us a constant reason to be grateful. I never want anyone to be able to say that we don’t realize what we have. So, every now and then, just expect to see me get all sappy and lovey dovey and let you all know that we feel you here with us all the time. Love you wonderful people!!

Paramore itself has single handedly changed the way I am. I'm a better person from Paramore. I had an Anxiety disorder that started up 2 years ago. I could barely do a thing outside of my home. But something about the Paramore sound and its members gives me a comfort i've never had before. Their songs had a meaning for any and every mood I was in. My ipod currently consists of 28 Paramore songs, and 30 total songs. A nice ratio i'd say. I know Hayley has a quote on her bio saying the more music you discover the happier you'll be. But for me, Paramore is all I need. I've never been happier since I found this band. Keep working hard please Paramore, you have loads and loads of loyal fans that just want to see you guys having fun and enjoying yourselves as a band. Goodluck in the studio and with the songwriting. We'll love the music you put out no matter what. It's always amazing, both lyrically and just the sound. God bless you 3, and we love you.

Thought I just said this but... I wanted to say knowing you work with love146 that I know you must have a deeper appreciation. I have seen, in my own anti-trafficking efforts here and abroad that there are some "glory-seekers" but I don't get that vibe from you and know from my own experience the perspective and appreciation involvement in the anti-slavery movement can produce. Great fan shout out. "And, for that I thank you."

We love you too Hayley? And just to let you know, you've also changed our lives, and we are very grateful for Paramore :) You've given me a smile when i was upset or sad, So Hayley, Taylor and Jeremy, I thank you for being the best band and please continue to pursue your dream, and be inspiring to millions of fans, the 3 of you will always be something that no one can ever put into words, but if i had to say one word to describe Paramore.............Beautiful!
