"Both Sides Now" as written by and Joni Mitchell....
Bows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on every one
So many things I could have done
But clouds got in my way

I've looked at (clouds/love/life) from
Both sides now
From (up/give/win) and (down/take/lose)
And still somehow
It's (cloud's/love's/life's) illusions I recall
I really don't know (clouds/love/life)
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
