Neko Case I Love You

Too tired to do a full review, will do one later- for now, Neko you are MY favourite.

oh, lie
I thought you were golden
I thought you were wise
caught you returning
to the house you caught fire
but I know that I was your favorite
and I said amen

wise, found favorin' heaven
and I at your side
but I never felt sorry
for those shimmering lies
when I laid down and cried
I was faking
and I said amen

last night I dreamt
that I hit a deer with my car
blood from his heart
spilled out onto my dress and was warm
he begged me to follow
but legions of sorrow defied me

oh, lie
I thought you were golden
I thought you were wise
when I caught you returning
to the house you caught fire
but I know that I'm your favorite
and I said amen
oh, favorite
and I said amen

    She was just amazing last night. I was right up the front and was just in awe of her during the night.

    I really wish I could go tonight.

    I ended up passing along a mix CD I made to her.

    Ah, very good. I hope she likes it.
    Now I know where your blog name comes from too. I must admit there are a few songs I'm not familiar with. I love 4 and 7, I still believe the Go-Betweens and the Triffids were the 2 greatest bands Australia has produced.
