i’ve revenged myself all over myself, there’s nothing you can do to me*

*lyric, Neko Case’s ‘Night Still Comes’

I’m going to see Neko Case tonight!

I ADORE this woman. As a poet, it sometimes rubs me up the wrong way when people describe song lyrics as poetry, but I really believe Neko Case is a poet and her lyrics are poetry.

Look at this live version of ‘Night Still Comes’ – when I first heard this song, it made me cry cry cry like a baby – something about the lyrics – the line above in the title of this post – which I could relate to in terms of how much I mentally torture and self-sabotage myself sometimes and the key line of the chorus ‘You never held it at the right angle’ – poignant, sad, beautiful…

I can’t quite believe I’m going to see her real soon!

Feeling very…

happy
