Sunday Morning Music: Joni Mitchell

My sister is seven years older than me so to say that I have been listening to Joni Mitchell for as long as I can remember is not an exaggeration. Blue remains one of my favorite records, forever seared into my consciousness marking so many of the big moments of my life.

I used to read her lyrics obsessively as I don’t think there are many that do it better. I am currently listening to the video above for the second time this morning.

“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
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 toching 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 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.

Inner Foot To Opposite Shoulder
Go Barefoot on the Bosu
