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

Siddharth fgjhfh You never REALLY listened to Dylan, did you?

“Inside the museums, infinity goes up on trial
Voices echo this is what salvation must be like after a while
But Mona Lisa musta had the highway blues
You can tell by the way she smiles
See the primitive wallflower freeze
When the jelly-faced women all sneeze
Hear the one with the mustache say, "Jeez, I can't find my knees"
Oh, jewels and binoculars hang from the head of the mule
But these visions of Johanna, they make it all seem so cruel”

Also remember that Joni Mitchell in her interviews has always showed to be very envious to Dylan... whereas he couldn’t care less. I love Joni as well by the way.

When I was 13 and I got my first ever crush my mum gave me this album and said "You'll need it soon, and for ever after", she wasn't wrong :)

Peter Garcia
