Diana Krall - A Case Of You Lyrics

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 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
And I'd still 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 I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid
I remember that time you told me
"Love is touching souls"
Well 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
I could drink a case of you, darling
And I'd still be on my feet
I'd 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, 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
And I'd still be on my feet
I'd still be on my feet.

Diana Krall A Case Of You Comments
  1. Smooth Jazz UK

    Wish Diana would record a Joni album...just imagine what she could do with Paprika Plains!!!

  2. Bree Vwhyman

    That is *** such*** high quality song writing........on a totally different Level ........

    The sound recording quality is also very high............and it's a dynamic eclectic performance

    many thanks (that it's here avaialble) .

  3. EL Rod

    what beautiful phrasing of a lyrical masterpiece.................

  4. Beagle76

    She is brilliant.Not a rusted on fan I have this in vinyl LP it is just sublime.
    She hit the pedals hard that how good the playback is on that Album.

  5. Auralan Juhl

    What a sensitive reading of the inimitable masterpiece. Do I detect sly references to Court and Spark? So sweet indeed.


    YES! I noticed it too. Such a nod to Ms. Mitchell. And...Oh Canada national anthem.

  6. Marcus Vinicius

    Ana Moura has a better version.....

  7. Joanna McClean

    This rendition is fabulous. I came to YouTube looking for Prince playing piano singing Joni Mitchell's classic... Which I LOVE.

  8. Sky Valdez

    Love it!!

  9. Royston Taylor

    How lovely

  10. Andrew Cassey

    Love it, still prefer Live In Paris rendition, when she goes down into the cellar register singing the word "Bleed". Not here. Older and wiser to be sure, granted. But get the feeling she mailed this one in as opposed to #really digging deep for her performance of it in Paris. All that said...without Ms. Mitchell, there #would be no Diana performing this AT ALL. Much props to the author.

  11. Susan Joyce

    I don't think anyone sings this song better than Diana Krall. Sorry Joni!


    Just doesn’t have the magic of Joni or Tori Amos

    Agree with you. This is a lovely version, but Joni’s is so perfect.

    Gary N. Reese when someone becomes Music itself this magic happens ...
