I've very recently discovered the very lovely Neko Case and her beautiful voice and lyrics.  I hope you enjoy.

 

Middle Cyclone

Baby why am I worried now
Did someone make a fool of me
'fore I could show 'em how it's done
Na na na na na
Na na na

I can't give up actin' tough
It's all that I'm made of
Can't scrape together quite enough
To ride the bus to the outskirts of the fact that I need love

There were times that I tried
One for every glass of water that I spill
Next to the bed 're etching pennies in a boiling well
In a dream that at once becomes a foundry
Of mute and heavy bells
They shake me deaf and dumb
Say someone made a fool of me
'fore I could show 'em how it's done

It was so clear to me
That it was almost invisible
I lie 'cross the path waiting
Just for a chance to be
A spider web trapped in your lashes
For that I would trade you my empire for ashes
But I choke it back
How much I need love
Na na na na na
Na na na

We've Never Met

Oh my darling, oh my darling
How can you forget?
All the love we had between us
Now it's like we've never met

Oh it kills me, how it kills me
When I think I held you up
You were golden, I was blind
With your poison in my blood

They're sweeter than memories
That make your lovers pine
But I'll trade all the memories
Just to have your heart in mine

Everybody's talking to me
But they just can't explain
Disappeared from all the pages
And nothing seems the same

Was a time I thought I knew you
When I looked you in the eye
Now the same eyes look right through me
You're too cool to see me cry

They're sweeter than memories
That make your lovers pine
But I'll trade all the memories
Just to have your heart in mine

Oh my darling, oh my darling
How can you forget?
All the love we had between us
Now it's like we've never met

You were golden, I was blind
Now it's like we've never met

This Tornado Loves You

my love, i am the speed of sound
i left them motherless, fatherless
their souls dangling inside-out from their mouths
but it's never enough

i want you...

carved your name across three counties
ground it in with bloody hides
their broken necks will line the ditch
till you stop it
stop it
stop it
stop it
stop it
stop this madness

i want you...

i have waited with a glacier's patience
smashed every transformer with every trailer
till nothing was standing
sixty-five miles wide
still, you are nowhere
still, you are nowhere
nowhere in sight

come out to meet me
run out to meet me
come into the light

climb the boxcars to the engine
through the smoke and to the sky
your rails have always outrun mine
so i
picked them up and crashed them down
in a moment close to now

cause i miss
i miss
i miss
i miss
i miss
i miss
i miss
i miss

how you'd sigh yourself to sleep
when i'd rake the springtime
across your sheets

my love, i am the speed of sound
i left them motherless, fatherless
their souls dangling inside-out from their mouths
but it's never enough

my love
i'm an owl on the sill in the evening
but morning finds you
still warm and breathing

this tornado loves you
this tornado loves you
this tornado loves you
this tornado loves you
this tornado loves you

what will make you believe me?

this tornado loves you
this tornado loves you
this tornado loves you
this tornado loves you
this tornado loves you

what will make you believe me?

I Wish I Was The Moon

Chimney falls and lovers blaze
Thought that I was young
Now I've freezing hands and bloodless veins
As numb as I've become
I'm so tired, I wish I was the moon tonight

Last night I dreamt I've forgotten my name
'Cause I sold my soul
But I woke just the same
I'm so lonely, I wish I was the moon tonight

God bless me I'm a free man
With no place free to go
Paralyzed and collared tight
No pills for what I fear
This is crazy, I wish I was the moon tonight

Chimney falls and lovers blaze
Thought that I was young
Now I've freezing hands and bloodless veins
As numb as I've become
I'm so tired, I wish I was the moon tonight

How will you know if you've found me at last?
'Cause I'll be the one, be the one, be the one
With my heart in my lap
I'm so tired
I'm so tired
And I wish I was the moon tonight

I'm so tired
I'm so tired
And I wish I was the moon...

I'm so tired
I'm so tired
And I wish I was the moon tonight

A wonderful cover of a Harry Nilsson song

Don't Forget Me

in the wintertime
keep your feet warm
and keep your clothes on
and don't forget me
keep your memories
but keep your powder dry, too

in the summer
by the poolside
while the fireflies are all around you
i'll miss you when i'm lonely
i'll miss the alimony, too

don't forget me
don't forget me
make it easier on me
just for a little while

you know, i think about you
let me know you think about me, too

and when we're older
and full of cancer
it doesn't matter now
come on, get happy

cause nothing lasts forever
but i will always love you

don't forget me
please don't forget me
make it easier on me
just for a little while

you know, i think about you
let me know you think about me, too
