Bows and flows of angel hair
Ice-cream castles in the air
And feathered canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way

And 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 clouds illusion I recall
I really don't know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and ferris wheels
Dizzy dancing way you feel
'Cause every fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way

Now that's just another show
Leave them 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 look at life that way

But 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 illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all
