Down To You - Joni Mitchell

    Everything comes and goes
    Marked by lovers and styles of clothes
    Things that you held high
    And told yourself were true
    Lost or changing as the days come down to you
    Down to you
    Constant stranger
    You're a kind person
    You're a cold person too
    It's down to you
    It all comes down to you.
    You go down to the pick up station
    Craving warmth and beauty
    You settle for less than fascination
    A few drinks later you're not so choosy
    When the closing lights strip off the shadows
    On this strange new flesh you've found
    Clutching the night to you like a fig leaf
    You hurry
    To the blackness
    And the blankets
    To lay down an impression
    And your loneliness

    In the morning there are lovers in the street
    They look so high
    You brush against a stranger
    And you both apologize
    Old friends seem indifferent
    You must have brought that on
    Old bonds have broken down
    Love is gone
    Ooh, love is gone
    Written on your spirit this sad song
    Love is gone

    Everything comes and goes
    Pleasure moves on too early
    And trouble leaves too slow
    Just when you're thinking
    You've finally got it made
    Bad news comes knocking
    At your garden gate
    Knocking for you
    Constant stranger
    You're a brute-you're an angel
    You can crawl-you can fly too
    It's down to you
    It all comes down to you
