Both Sides Now


Both Sides Now - Joni Mitchell

One of my favorite songs. I love the message. There are two sides to life and we choose which side we give our attention to. ~ Christy
Listen: Both Sides Now

song lyrics

Bows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feathered 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 illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
When every fairy tale comes real
I’ve looked at love that way
But now it’s just another show
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 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 feelin’ proud
To say, “I love you!” right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I’ve looked at life that way
But now my friends are acting strange
They shake theirs heads, they say I’ve changed
Well something’s lost, but something’s gained
In livin’ 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
I really don’t know life at all.
