A Case Of You


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'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 
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 
And I would still 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


Joni Mitchell, ''A Case Of You''
