A Case of You - Diana Krall

(J.Mitchell)

Just before our love got lost you said
"I am as constant as a northern star"
And said, "Constant in the dark
Where's that at?
If you want me I'll be in the bar"

On the back of a cartoon coaster
In a 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
You taste so bitter and you taste 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

Oh I am a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
I'm frightened by the devil
And drawn to those who ain't afraid
I remember when you told me
"Love is touching souls"
Surely you touched mine
Part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time

You are in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and 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
I'd still be on my feet

I met a woman
She had a mouth like yours
She knew your devils and your deeds
She said
"Go to him, stay with him if you can
But be prepared to bleed"
You are in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and you taste 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
