When Mark pointed out the audience goes on a journey during the show, Gwen got candid about how all of her music has mirrored her life, saying, “The songs that I have written have been really clearly, like, 'This is what happened...' I just write a song about it, and that’s been my way to heal. A lot of the music I have written has been about heartbreak, really, unfortunately.”
“'This Is What the Truth Feels Like,' that was such an amazing record for me," she said. "It started off as writing a song that was all about anger and betrayal and pain, and then within eight weeks that I was writing it, my life switched over to falling in love… It went from this to that."
"But I don't think he knew what that whole ending scene was going to look like," she admitted. "I could picture it in my mind, but to make it finally look like that, it was beautiful... I was trying to ask him [what he thought]. He had to come and leave. He's doing the blind [auditions at The Voice] today."
"The ending of the show, what I was trying to say in a huge kind of love note way is just how amazing life can be, where everybody has to go through these challenges and these dark times, and then there's always a rainbow," she explained. "We literally put a rainbow on the screen, and sunflowers. And that's what my life feels like right now in so many ways."
