"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 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 cloud 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
