A Case of You Lyrics

by Joni Mitchell

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
And I sketched your face on it twice

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

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