Both Sides Now  Joni Mitchell

B[C]ows and fl[F]ows of [C]angel ha[F]ir
And ic[F]e cream cas[Em]tles in[Am] the ai[C]r
And feather ca[F]nyons eve[Dm]rywhere
I've looked at cl[F]ouds that w[G]ay
But n[C]ow they on[F]ly block [C]the sun[F]
They rai[F]n and sn[Em]ow on e[Am]veryo[C]ne
So many th[F]ings I co[Dm]uld have done
But clouds got i[F]n my w[G]ay
   I've l[C]ooked at cl[F]ouds from bo[C]th sides now
   From [F]up and d[C]own, and st[F]ill someh[C]ow
   It's cl[Em]ouds' illu[F]sions I[C] recall
   I r[C]eall[F]y d[C]on't [Am]know clo[Gsus]uds  [G]  at [C]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 them laughing as 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 and 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
