the new manics album is really quite something
halfway through, there’s a beautiful song with nicky wire on vocals, which is so open and heartfelt. it’s plainly obvious who he’s singing to:
"so come on, would it be that hard? just for once - we could save the world. just me and you doing something true. even if it only lasts for seconds"
"i love you, so won’t you please come home. it’s been so long, but i can’t let go"
