This week’s Songography selection is “Both Sides Now” by Joni Mitchell.
I was reminded, while researching this song, that some portions are rather “dark”. So, sorry, Joni, but I decided to pick and choose and only feature the more positive lyrics.
Bows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I’ve looked at clouds that 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…
… and feeling proud…
…to say “I love you” right out loud….
