  •  Both sides now... (4.00)
    Thank you Maryscott, Thank you Joni, Thank you Judy...

    Rows and flows of angel hair
    And 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 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 illusions I recall
    I really don't know clouds at all

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

    But now it's just another show
    And you 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
    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

    Oh but now old friends they're acting strange
    And they shake their heads
    And they tell me that I've changed
    Well something's lost but 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
    It's life's illusions I recall
    I really don't know life
    I really don't know life at all

    The clouds will pass...
