From Both Sides Now
Bows and flows of angel hair,
Ice cream castles in the air,
And feather canyons everywhere,
I've looked at clouds that way.
But now they only block the sun.
They rain and snow on everyone.
So many things I would've 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 clouds' illusions I recall.
I really don't know clouds at all.
Moons and tunes and ferris wheels,
The dizzy, dancing way you feel
When every fairy tale comes real.
I've looked at love that way.

you leave 'em laughin' 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 win and loose 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.
Well, something's lost but something’s gained
In living everyday.
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.
