Both Sides Now

Bows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
Feather canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way

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

I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It's cloud's illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and ferris wheels
The dizzy, dancing way you feel
When every fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way

Now it's just another show
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 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
Well something's lost and something's gained in living every day

I've looked at life from both sides now

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

I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It's cloud's illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all

I really don't know life at all

songwriter: Joni Mitchell

performed by: Carly Rae Jepsen

date released: 2012 by Carly Rae Jepsen

What would Joni Mitchell say to see a fresh young thing, pal of Justin Bieber, covering her iconic song of the getting of wisdom. I would love to be the fly on the wall in Joni's house.

Carly Rae Jepsen (born November 21, 1985) is a Canadian recording artist and singer-songwriter from the idyllic town of Mission, British Columbia. In 2007, she placed third in the fifth season of Canadian Idol, and was a part of the Canadian Idol Top 3 concert tour.

Shortly after competing on Canadian Idol, she released her debut album Tug of War on September 30, 2008. Three years later, she released a new single, titled "Call Me Maybe" which met with stellar success with a YouTube video. The popular song went viral getting over 300 million views and reaching the Number One spot on both the US Billboard and Canadian Hot 100. The single also went to the number one spot in 19 other countries. Jepsen signed with Interscope Records in 2012. Jepsen's musical influences include James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen, Van Halen, Justin Bieber, and very clearly, Joni Mitchell.
