"A Case Of You" as written by and 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
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 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

    General CommentThe best cover of this song I have ever heard, I know its blasphemous lol but I actually like Diana's version more than Joni's. I dont know if she has recorded anything other than the Live in Paris version but that is the one I love. Her raspy voice and her piano playing and the emotion you can hear in her voice and the timing of the words are amazing....

    General CommentThis song was on the Junos 2003 CD that I bought and this is my fave song on the whole thing. I had never heard much of anything by Diana Krall but now I see what all the fuss is about!

    General Commentohhhhhhh how much i love this song i can never tell
    so sad to love someone so deep and to never be able to put trust "she said go to him, stay with him if you can
    But be prepared to bleed" . to love someone so much you feel ike it's never quite enough "Oh I could drink a case of you, darling . Still, I'd be on my feet "
    but what the deal with canada. maybe he is canadian :p
