Neko Case - "Ragtime"

This is the closing track from Neko Case's new album, and until I heard this story yesterday I wasn't aware of the hard time that her new songs detail.
For a year and a half now, Morning Edition has been following the singer-songwriter Neko Case as she worked on an album that would come to be titled The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You. It includes "Where Did I Leave That Fire," a song with a haunting question at its heart, and now we know that the singer who asked where she left that fire was feeling depressed. She felt like she was moving through life underwater.
