Before work today, I sat in the parking lot and listened to a couple of more songs and decided to play this one by Neko Case. I’ve played it from time to time, admiring its simplicity and Case’s talent as a songwriter and vocalist, but I’ve never really payed attention to the words.
I decided to look up what other people thought of the song on Song Meanings dot com and the top rated comment was “I think she wrote this song through the point of view of a dog.” As soon as I read that, I started balling. Full blown tears were falling down my face as that little song played.
Last night I had a dream about a childhood dog who died after getting hit by a car a few years ago. In the dream, he was crying so I hugged him as he sat on my lap. I think what got me so emotional out of nowhere was the fact that I feel kind of guilty for not giving him as good of a life he could have had. I could have taken him on some more walks, taken him to the beach, or even let him sleep with me every once in a while. But I didn’t and now he’s dead. So, yeah.

I want to be cool enough to wink at someone and have it go well.
