A Case of You


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.

“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 are 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
