[SOTM] Both Sides Now – Joni Mitchell

This is one of my all-time favorite songs. Ini versi yang tahun 2000, walaupun videonya cuma still shot of the album aja tapi tidak audionya tetep WOW kok. Ini album yang dalam film “Love Actually” jadi hadiah natal dari Harry (Alan Rickman) ke istrinya, Karen (Emma Thompson).

Both Sides Now
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 they 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 that you feel
as every fairy tale comes real; I've looked at love that way.
But now it's just another show. And 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 that 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.
Oh but now old friends are acting strange, and they shake their heads,
and they tell me that 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.
