"A Case of You (Joni Mitchell cover)" 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 at 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
Still I'd 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
And I would still 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 Commenti wont say much about the song, except it's one of my favourites... :D

    I'll post here the correct lyrics since James changed it a bit:

    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
    You're my blood, you're my holy wine
    You taste so bitter and so sweet

    Oh I could drink a case of you darling
    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 the time you told me
    "Love was touching souls"
    But surely you touched mine
    'Cause part of you pours out of me
    In these lines from time to time
    You're my blood, you're my holy wine
    You taste so bitter and so sweet

    (...)

    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"

    General CommentSaw him live at Bonnaroo 2014.

    He played this song.

    I have now converted to the Religion of James Blake. He closed with Wilhelm Scream.

    Straight worship.
