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
