Nina "Help me in my weakness" Every time I hear this song begin, I 'm speechless --how does he get that sound of supplication and abjection and loveliness into the vocal? And the elliptical imagery I love too. The story might not add up to some of the other gems on the album, but it is still a riveting performance. May 13, 2005
