Bows and flows of angel hair,
and ice cream castles in the air
Feathered canyons everywhere,
I've looked at clouds that way
Now they only block the sun,
they rain and snow on everyone
So many things I could 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 illusion I recall,
I really don't know clouds at all
Moons and Junes and farris wheels.
The dizzy dancing way you feel
When every fairytale comes real.
I've looked at love that way
Now that's just another show
you leave them laughing when you go
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 illusion 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 look at life that way
Now old friends are acting strange.
They shake their heads they say I've changed
But something's lost and 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 illusion I recall.
I really don't know life at all
