The Next Time You Say Forever

Album: Middle Cyclone (2009)


  • The A.V.Club asked Neko Case if any of the songs on Middle Cyclone are autobiographical. She replied: "I know that I'm in a lot of them. I don't think they're really about me, necessarily, or about anyone in particular—maybe "Next Time You Say Forever" a little bit. But there aren't particular stories about other people, and the love songs aren't songs about me being in love with people, necessarily. They're more songs that are love songs between a tornado and a person. But my own experiences are in there. I can't deny that, because mine's the only experience I have, so I don't have any choice. That's all I got!"
