A case of you



Estou escrevendo palavras ao vento. Chove lá fora e minha mente divaga sobre coisas que poderiam ter ocorrido, se eu tivesse tomado alguma atitude.

Sozinho, respiro pela primeira vez os ares da liberdade e me sinto estranho. Eles se foram, mas ao invès da paz, sinto um vazio. Preciso preencher com algo, por isso me dedico aos meus escritos e é quase 11 da noite, quando num programa de música New Age, ouço uma canção que mudaria minha vida.

" Just before our love got lost you said
"I am as constant as a northern star"
And I said, "Constant in the darkness
Where's that at?

Vocal feminino, arranjos maravilhosos e meu peito se enche de alegria e inspiração. Quem é essa cantora? E ela continua:

" Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
Oh and you taste so bitter but 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"

Quando dou por mim, já estou longe; numa terra distante e cheia de possibilidades. Um futuro? Talvez, mas me vejo viajando pelo mundo e há alguém do meu lado. Quase vejo o seu rosto, quase toco os seus cabelos e sinto que ela está em meu sangue como vinho sagrado.

A canção acaba e tive o que depois descobriria ser uma visão de um possível futuro. Resta apenas ter paciência, o que vi vai ocorrer, um dia ou outro, até lá...como consigo essa canção?

A Case of You ( Album Spirit)
Letras de Joni Mitchell / Versão Caroline Lavelle

Just before our love got lost you said
"I am as constant as a northern star"
And I said, "Constant 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
And I sketched your face on it twice
Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
Oh and you taste so bitter but 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

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 that 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 are in my blood like holy wine
And you taste so bitter but 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 life
She knew your devils and your deeds
And she said
Color "Go to him, stay with him if you can
Oh but be prepared to bleed"
Oh but you are in my blood you're my holy wine
Oh and you taste so bitter but you taste so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
Still I'd be on my feet
I'd still be on my feet
