Both sides Two sides

Cell's lunch after-math @ Macs. Nuggets party thanks to Mr Seah's coupons.
Goody Friday!
It seems kinda morbid(i believe there are others who think so too) that Good Friday is called Good even though someone died on Friday..... but His death is salvation for people who believe in Him and unconditional love to die for His children. This is what i call Timeless love.

anyway, today the guest speaker bring up a song Both sides now by Joni Mitchell.
Joni Mitchell is one of my fav song writer from the older era(those who heard my playlist will noe how old my listening era can be). I 1st heard the song sang by Joni Mitchell herself on Love Actually soundtrack. After listening to it again and again.... there is an older group who sang a fast cheery oh-hum song with the same exact chorus.

Neil Diamond did a cover, so does Willie Nelson & Eva Cassidy. Others singers i found are Hayley Westerna, Judy Collins, etc.

Rows and floes of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons evrywhere
Ive looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on evryone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way

Ive looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
Its cloud illusions I recall
I really dont know clouds at all

Moons and junes and ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As evry fairy tale comes real
Ive looked at love that way

But now its just another show
You leave em laughing when you go
And if you care, dont let them know
Dont give yourself away

Ive looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
Its loves illusions I recall
I really dont know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say I love you right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
Ive looked at life that way

But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say Ive changed
Well somethings lost, but somethings gained
In living evry day

Ive looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
Its lifes illusions I recall
I really dont know life at all
Ive looked at life from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
Its lifes illusions I recall
I really dont know life at all
