‘I want to be strong I want to laugh along
I want to belong to the living
Alive, alive, I want to get up and jive
I want to wreck my stockings in some juke box dive
Do you want – do you want – do you want
To dance with me baby.’

– Joni Mitchell, All I Want

‘I am on a lonely road and I am traveling
Looking for the key to set me free
Oh the jealousy, the greed is the unraveling
It’s the unraveling
And it undoes all the joy that could be
I want to have fun, I want to shine like the sun’

– Joni Mitchell, All I Want

“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”

– Joni Mitchell, A case of you
