Both Sides

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 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 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 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 old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I’ve changed
But 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

    when you published this post I downloaded the song and listened to it. And I absolutely loved it <33
    but today i found out that Taylor Swift tattooed "It’s love’s illusions I recall. I really don’t know love at all" on her arm!!! (removable ink)

    Hahahah…Good thing it’s removable ink, means she’s giving love a chance to become known to her again… Back to December is my favorite Taylor Swift’s 🙂

      haha she always changes the lyrics on her arm… I use taylorswiftarmlyrics.com to check what lyrics she currently have.
      Back to December is a great song (:
      I also recommend Love Story and Never Grow Up

    Happy Eid to you too 🙂

    • Bilal Kamoon says:

      sorry if I’m posting so many comments, but I don’t know anyone else to share this info with.
      btw I just found out that the movie Love Actually (taylor’s favorite) also uses the song Both Sides Now as a soundtrack (:
