Rows and floes of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons ev'rywhere
I've looked at clouds that way

But now, they only block the sun
They rain and snow on ev'ryone
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 dancin' 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 actin' strange
They shake their heads, they say, I've changed
Well, something's lost, but something's gained
In livin' ev'ry day

I've looked at clouds 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
I've looked at life from both sides now
