You said “I am as constant as a nothern star”

Joni Mitchell – A Case Of You

a case of you

Just before our love got lost you said
“i am as constant as a northern star”
And i said, “constant 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 your face sketched on it twice

Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
Oh and 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
And i would still be on my feet
Oh i’d 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
And 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 i’d be on my feet
And 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
Color “go to him, stay with him if you can
Oh but be prepared to bleed”
Oh but you are in my blood you’re my holy wine
Oh and you taste so bitter, bitter and so sweet
Oh i could drink a case of you darling
Still i’d be on my feet
I’d still be on my feet

Mmmmmmm
