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

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

My wife loved Joni. She had every album. My wife died in 1982 at age 27, and here I sit alone and crying, listening to the music...

(Through the tears) The price of love is loss, but still we love. So sorry for your loss.

My God... I feel your pain. I'm so sorry.

I was introduced to Joni's music by a special woman who was not in my life long enough also.
