Rows and floes 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 hide the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I might 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
When every fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way.

But now it's just another show
You 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've looked at life that way.

But now my friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
Well, somethings lost, but somethings gained
In living every day.

I've looked at life from both sides now
Win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all.
