A sense of community for Neko Case
< Previous Page
Case seethed. She resisted the temptation to get involved, but wrote a song that loses none of the incident’s immediacy. "Please, kid, have your say," she sings, "‘cause I’ll still love you, even if I don’t see you again."
After her mother shouted at her, the little girl turned away and started singing to herself, Case said.
"I don’t think she was processing," she said. "She was just surviving. She’ll pay for it later. I had a very similar upbringing so I totally felt for that kid."
