On average, Warren works on one song each week, and is usually in her office every day but Sunday for at least 12 hours."I can't work on more than one song at a time, it's too schizophrenic," she says."When I got to about 14, I got passionately crazy about songwriting...

The gleaming offices, walls crammed with gold records, are beige and bland - oddly ordinary for a woman famous in the music business for her eccentricity and strangeness.
