both sides now

after months of searching, i finally found a joni mitchell cd in a music store in makati. as i asked the saleslady for the price, i secretly prayed that it would be within my budget. good thing, i wasn't disappointed. the cd contained one of my favorite songs, both sides now. yey!

oh, and F, you're not off the hook yet. you still have to give me the cd you promised! =P

both sides now

Rows and flows 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 they 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 dancing way that you feel

As ev'ry fairy tale comes real

I've looked at love that way

But now it's just another show

And 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 that 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, they're acting strange
And they shake their heads, and they tell me I've changed
Well something's lost, but something's gained
In living ev'ry day
Oh, 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...

*** this is the song you hear in the background everytime you visit my blog.
