Both Sides Now

Judy Collins

 GCGGmaj7CG
 Bows and flows of angel hair, and ice cream castles in the air,
 G/F#CC/BAm7D
And feather canyons everywhere—I've looked at clouds that way.
 GCGGmaj7CG
But now they only block the sun, they rain and snow on everyone.
 G/F#CC/BAm7D
So many things I would have done, but clouds got in the way.
 GCG
I've looked at clouds from both sides now,
 CGCG
From up and down, and still somehow
 Gmaj7Am7GEmCDG
It's clouds illusions I recall; I really don't know clouds at all.

 GCGGmaj7CG
 Moons and Junes and ferris wheels, the dizzy dancing way you feel
 G/F#CC/BAm7D
When every fairy tale comes real — I've looked at love that way.
 GCGGmaj7CG
But now it's just another show, you leave 'em laughing as you go,
 G/F#CC/BAm7D
And if you care, don't let them know,    don't give yourself away.
 GCG
I've looked at love from both sides now,
 CGCG
From give and take, and still somehow,
 Gmaj7Am7GEmCDG
It's love's illusions I recall; I really don't know love at all.

 GCGGmaj7CG
 Tears and fears and feeling proud to say "I love you" right out loud;
 G/F#CC/BAm7D
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds — I've looked at life that way.
 GCG
But now old friends are acting strange,
 GGmaj7CG
They shake their heads and say I've changed,
 G/F#EmCC/BAm7D
But something's lost and something's gained     from living every day.
 GCG
I've looked at life from both sides now,
 CGCG
From win and lose, and still somehow,
 Gmaj7Am7GEmCC/BDG
It's life's illusions I recall; I really don't know life at all.
