Both Sides, Now

You may have noticed the clouds on some of these web pages. They're not there by accident.


Clouds are so fine. It reminded me of the song, “Both Sides, Now,” by Joni Mitchell.


BOTH SIDES, NOW

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 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 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 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 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 They shake their heads, they say 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


I've looked at life from both sides now From up and down, and still somehow It's life's illusions I recall I really don't know life at all
