Both Sides Now

Both Sides Now” Hayley Westenra
Rows and flows of angel hair

And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhereI’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
Clouds got in my way
I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now

From up and down, and still somehowIt’s cloud illusions
I recallI 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 realI’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 recallI 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
