i decided this is my favorite song of all time. it has to be. i can listen to it over and over and over again and never tire of it. on my long drives home, i put it on repeat and sing along until my throat is raw... i don't think that's possible with any other song.
"It was one of those things where there's gang violence and somebody gets shot right in front of you, and you live it and it's horrible. And, of course, it doesn't make the news because the kid is black. Nobody gives a shit except for his family, and you see how much nobody gives a shit and it's fucking heartbreaking. He wasn't even the kid they were looking to shoot. He was just some kid who they mistook for somebody else and they shot him. I saw it happen. I didn't make the song about me either. The song is pieces of different people but the event is in there."
From some interview with Neko.
This song was the one that got me hooked with Neko to begin with, damn its so good, does anyone has any idea what the lyrics are about? they are tragic but are very... I dunno, they are as if someone was describing a dream... gotta love that piano at the end
Hey pretty baby! Get high with me! This is the one song that feels so much more different to me after seeing her live. She didn't sing this, but it makes me think of seeing her in person.
"the look on your face yanks my neck on the chain, and I would do anything to see you again"
