“Things that you held high, And told yourself were true, Lost or changing as the days come down to you”

Art of Quotation

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

Lyrics from “Down to You”, 1974, Grammy Award, written by Joni Mitchell. Song lyrics, song quotes, singer, songwriter, singer-songwriter



Down to You – 1974

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

.

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
