So, I got another request for you:

on this next one,

there's gonna be one part where I'm gonna --

Damn, you're all sitting.

Could you all stand real quick?

I'm sorry to make you get up, I know what it's like.

But if everyone could just stand for this one.

And it's only because we're gonna do one thing --

it's gonna be fun, okay?

I hope you're down.

So, for you guys, it'll be easy.

But listen, there's gonna be one part of this song

where I'm gonna ask everybody in this room to bend down.

Okay?

So, you're all gonna get as low as you can get,

and then when it comes back in,

I want you to jump like some kangaroos.

Just for this song, okay?

Bear with me, moms and dads and everybody, okay?

Just give me at least one, that's all I'm askin' for.

You're down, and then when it comes in, just gimme one, okay?

It's all I want. Yes?

Okay.

Thank you.

I was like -- I was very skeptical

before I came out here, and I was worried

you guys weren't gonna like me, so thank you for liking me.

[ Cheering and applause ]

All I say -- or, all I wanna say is,

um...

My request, I guess, would be that we all try to

live in this moment, and even if that's a bad moment,

if it's a good moment, whatever,

if you feel horrible, if you feel amazing,

I want you to live in that

because it's the only feeling you get to live in right now,

that's all you got, so, um...

[ Cheering and applause ]

Basically, this is the only moment we get,

to be in this moment, it's going to go away in, like,

two seconds, so let's be here, yes?

"Let's do this, let's do this, let's -- blah-blah-blah,"

it was like, we both wrote music and we loved music,

and, um...

It kind of started off as, like, he had written this song,

and I sang it, and then I had written this song,

and then we recorded that,and we just put both of 'em out,

and it wasn't really, like, it wasn't any expectation,

it wasn't for any reason

besides the fact that we just wanted to.

And then we, um -- he wrote the song "Ocean Eyes,"

and we put it out, and...

Got huge!

I, like, was so, so not okay for, like, a very long time,

and, um, didn't honestly think I'd...

ever be okay.

So, it's...it's very cool that I'm finally okay.
