"I've looked at clouds from 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 illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and Ferris Wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel

As ev'ry 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

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 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

  11. The "tears and tears and feeling proud" picture is my favorite. It looks like cottonballs of tears in the sky. I love these. They are spiritual...if ya know what I mean....and thought-provoking.
