rows and flows of angel hair and ice cream
castles in the air and feathered 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 clouds 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

but now old friends are acting
strange, they shake their heads
they say i've changed
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
