i wish i was the moon tonight

"last night i dreamt i had forgotten my name
'cause i had sold my soul but awoke just the same
i'm so lonely
i wish i was the moon tonight

God blessed me, i'm a free man
with no place free to go
i'm paralyzed and collared-tight
no pills for what i fear

i'm so tired
i wish i was the moon tonight"

-from "i wish i was the moon" by neko case

see/hear neko perform song:


  1. I have a long and loving relationship with the moon I never get tired of looking at it, basking in it's light, painting it or seeing others interpretations. This is splendid but if she isn't careful she's going to get a moonburn...causes lunacy you know.

    1. do they make a cream for that? for the crazy of course..?!

  2. Gorgeously sad and moody! I love the rich tones!

  3. Well, I guess it's not so bad to be "mooned" when it's as artistically done as this. Ah, love that Neko Case.

  4. thank you louciao. neko is the perfect mix of quirky and dark... always fun trying to interpret her lyrics!

  5. Two moons for the price of one beautiful piece of art!

  6. Aww, I love this wonderful poem and art. Nice one. Keep posting please, I would love to hear more from you. Thanks!
