Song-ography ~ Both Sides Now Edition ~ 4

Bows 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 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 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

Sharing today's Joni Mitchell song with
Kathy at You'll Shoot Your Eye Out.

  1. YOWZERS Deb! Those colors, that light! GORGEOUS! The colors remind me of sherbert! How fortunate for you to have witnessed such beauty, and how lucky for us that you both noticed it AND have the talent to capture it so wonderfully :). Thank you for sharing at Song-ography this week.

  20. GREAT photo! And how delightful to see the words to this song which I've heard a hundred times....I could hear it in my mind as I read the words.

    Thanks so much Debbie for your well-wishes on my father-in-law's passing, and my health issues. I know you have your own struggles. All my best--
