Woke up with you today, in my head, Joni Mitchell’s tune: “A Case of You”, from an album, released the year I was born, called Blue. A state of mind I am in so many times I could call it my very own: With the Blues…
Got to know Joni Mitchell late in life. It was love at first hearing…
Replaced Last Time I Saw Richard by A Case of you.
As the first makes tears roll down my face and I don’t feel like crying lately. I’d rather sing.
That’s what I did the whole morning, with the lyrics in front of me, until I knew it by heart, while trying to tune my voice with Joni’s. A handful. Joni has this delicate voice whilst mine sounds more like a thunder sometimes.
Felt like singing it to your ear.
I’d say Oh I am a lonely writer; I live in a box of books and would leave the rest as it is. Sadly, you are very far away, and this song doesn’t call for screaming and shouting.
