BOTH SIDES NOW- Cloud by Joni Mitchell for Julie

Rows 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's 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,
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.

Oh but now old friends they're acting strange,
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
Well 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

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

Dreaming

I was dreaming of a time when I was sad It was not too long ago The heart weighed heavy I was dreaming of a time when it was bad It was yesterday The mind thought so Dreaming is relieving Where warm is not too cold For me, dreaming of you

Damaged


Take a picture of yourself
A world where no one else
Imagines you were there
And you start to know
How it feels loving you
Nothing's real

Won't you take me? Won't you wake me to the lie?
I feel a little damaged
Change me, won't you make me alright?
And I'll feel a little damaged tonight

I'm sinking like a stone
I thought you'd like to know
I was deeper than a well
Then you came along
I fell so hard for you
I just lost my guard

Won't you take me? Won't you wake me to the lie?
I feel a little damaged
Change me, won't you make me alright?
And I'll feel a little damaged tonight

You can take away the pain
Can take away the love
You gave me everything I can't give up
So, leave me with this night, yeah...

Take me, won't you wake me to the lie?
Won't you take me? Won't you wake me to the lie?
I feel a little damaged
Change me, won't you make me alright?
And I'll feel a little damaged (tonight)

Won't you take me? Won't you wake me to the lie?
I feel a little damaged
Change me, won't you make me alright?
And I'll feel a little damaged

Shadows in a love box


Take first steps with me
Leave the shadows behind

Don't you wish
The light sparkles
Just a little while longer 

Feel my palm with yours 
Snuggle up in love we bind

Have you felt
The smile lingers
Just the day over

The Pink Ice Cream Cake

It seems lonely enough
The last person left in this world
You look for joy
Like digging for gold
Not so long ago.

The pink ice cream cake
Before me
Is a tasty picture
So sweetly pretty.

I imagine, thumbing and eating it.

Loneliness soon becomes unbelievable.
Joy is soon so near.
