Neil Diamond Both Sides Now Lyrics

Last updated: 08/08/2006 11:00:00 AM

(Joni Mitchell)


Rows and flows of angel hair
ice cream castles in the air
feather canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain they 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
It's cloud's illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
The dizzy dancin' way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way

But now it's just another show
leave 'em laughing when you 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
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
And say I've changed
something's lost
When 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
