Rolls and flows of angel hair
Ice cream castles in the air
Feather canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way
But now they only block the sun
They rain, they snow on everyone
So many things I would've 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
Leave 'em laughin' when you go
But if you care, don't let em' 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
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 and say I've changed
But something's lost when somethings gained
Living everyday

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
