about

This was one of my mom's favorite songs. When I found her handwritten lyric sheet from the early 70's, I knew I had to cover it.

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 Minnesota
With your face sketched on it twice

Oh you're 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

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 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

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 her, stay with her if you can
But be prepared to bleed"
