A Case of You
Joni Mitchell Lyrics


Just before our love got lost, you said
"I am as constant as a northern star," and I said
"Constantly in the darkness
Where's that at?
If you want me, I'll be in the bar"

On the back of a cartoon coaster
In the blue TV screen light
I drew a map of Canada
Oh, Canada
With your face sketched on it twice

Oh, you are in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter
And so sweet, oh
I could drink a case of you, darling
And I would still be on my feet
Oh, I would still be on my feet

Oh, I am a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
I'm frightened by the devil
And I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid
I remember that time you told me
You said, "Love is touching souls"
Surely you touched mine, 'cause
Part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time

Oh, you're in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter
And so sweet, oh
I could drink a case of you, darling
Still I'd be on my feet
I would still be on my feet

I met a woman
She had a mouth like yours
She knew your life
She knew your devils and your deeds
And she said, "Go to him
Stay with him if you can but be prepared to bleed"

Oh, but you are in my blood, you're my holy wine
You're so bitter
Bitter and so sweet, oh
I could drink a case of you, darling
Still I'd be on my feet
I would still be on my feet
Hmm

Pouco antes de nosso amor se perder você disse
"Sou tão constante quanto uma estrela do norte"
E eu disse, "Constantemente na escuridão
Onde fica isso?
Se você me quiser, estarei no bar"
Atrás de um porta-copos de papelão
Na luz azulada da televisão
Eu desenhei um mapa do Canadá
Oh Canadá
Com seu rosto rascunhado nele duas vezes
Oh, você está em meu sangue como vinho sagrado
Seu gosto é tão doce e tão amargo
Oh eu poderia beber uma caixa de você, querido
E eu continuaria de pé
Oh e eu continuaria de pé
Oh eu sou uma pintora solitária
Eu vivo em uma caixa de tintas
Me assusto com o mal
E sou atraída por aqueles que não têm medo
Eu lembro daquela vez que você me disse, você disse
"O amor está tocando almas"
Seguramente você tocou a minha, pois
Parte de você flui de mim
Nestas linhas de tempos em tempos
Oh, você está em meu sangue como vinho sagrado
Seu gosto é tão doce e tão amargo
Oh eu poderia beber uma caixa de você, querido
E eu continuaria de pé
Oh e eu continuaria de pé
Eu conheci uma mulher, ela tinha a boca como a sua, ela conhecia sua vida
Sabia de seus medos e de seus feitos e ela disse
"Vá até ele, fique com ele, se puder
Mas esteja preparada para sangrar"
Mas você está em meu sangue, você é meu vinho sagrado
Você é tão amargo, tão amargo e tão doce
Oh, eu poderia beber uma caixa de você, querido
E eu continuaria de pé
Oh e eu continuaria de pé.

Oh I am a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
Im frightened by the devil
And Im drawn to those ones that aint afraid
I remember that time that you told me, you said
Love is touching souls
Surely you touched mine
Cause part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time.

Honestly, I never cared much for Joni Mitchell as a musician but I don't think she ever got enough credit on being one of the best song writers of all time
