Man, the lyrics on the RP site are messed up. Here they are for real:

Baby, come out
I'll meet you in the street
At the place by the old fire station
We'll get something to eat,
Like we talked about.

Baby, come down
It's been a while now
I've got so many things I could tell you,
If my stubborn mouth doesn't let me down.

And I can't look at you straight-on
You're made from something different than I know

I try to slip the marching clock
But centipedes invade my thoughts
Without free will I heel and I go
I step onto that metal plate,
Where it meets the dazzling sound of trains,
And I beg those trains to run.

Cause I can't look at you straight-on
You're made from something different than I know

My eyes are on the sidewalk,
It's gum holding your feet
I swear under my breath
Because I'm starving in your gravity
You're made from something different than I know

You linger just a little long,
I see your gun is drawn with the safety on
You can walk me back to my hotel
Like it was home.
And I smell those fools you made cordwood of
In petty dreams that leave me sleeping here, in your arms.

City swans,
Our crook'd necks long
City swans

And I can't look at you straight-on
You're made from something different than I know

And it breaks my heart just like the day,
That I looked down and I realized
I'd been sailing so long I'd become the shore

City swans,
Our crook'd necks long
City swans

Sorry, but you lost a little good neighbor vibe on those last two. Me, I would been past 11 by now...

Clear, understandable lyrics, no shouting, well within her range.  A good start.  Establishes an environment of being within the song with Neko.  Thank you RP for introducing me to Neko Case

No, its not "like" 4 times a day.  Look at the commentor dates.  Not even close.  Would it be hard to bring, like, a minimal amount of precision to your statements first?

Saw here a week ago at the Vogue in Broad Ripple. It was fun. I'm an avid Neko fan and the show did not disappoint. 

Forget his name but the older guy that played guitar, pedal steel and of all things, a trombone - he was awesome.  

The bass player looked like someone from Duck Dynasty. He played the stand up bass a good bit, which I think is cool.

Also enjoyed seeing the backup singer. She does very well.

On a side note, security was making a HUGE point about no one being allowed to take any pictures or videos. They made it clear that you would be booted out immediately if you used a phone or camera. It was bit heavy handed.  Ironically, Neko's hair and outfit were pretty bad. Black tights that had all the leg and hip bones in white with some ratty shirt. He hair looked like an outlet bit her.   

Still love the Neko tho. It was great being that close. I think she smiled at me. <wink>

I saw her on 10/20/13 in St. Louis. She looked and sounded as if she just woke up from a nap. It took a few songs to get going but once she did, it was all good.

I know what you mean. Lots of people who’s opinions I value love Neko but for some reason she doesn’t ring my bell. Thought I do like this particular song more than most.
