Both Sides Now (Joni Mitchell) Bows and flows of angel hair And ice-cream castles in the sky And feather canyons everywhere I've looked to clouds that way. But now they only block the sun, They rain and snow on everyone. So many things I would have done But clouds got in my way. I've looked at clouds from both sides now, From up and down, and still somehow, Its cloud illusions I recall, I really don't know clouds at all. Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels The dizzy dancing way you feel As every fairy tale comes real I've looked at clouds that way. But now its just another show you leave 'em laughing when they go And if you care don't let them know Don't give yourself away. I've looked at love from both sides now From give and take and still somehow It's love's illusions I recall I really don't know love at all. Tears and fears and feeling proud To say "I love you" right out loud Dreams and schemes and circus crowds I've looked at life that way. But now old friends are acting strange They shake their heads, they say I've changed But something's lost and something's gained In living every day. I've looked at life from both sides now From win and lose and still somehow It's life's illusions I recall I really don't know life at all. Copyright Joni Mitchell LV
