Skyer, kærlighed og livet (lyt)


Both Sides, Now by Joni Mitchell
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 illusions I recallI really don't know clouds at all


Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As ev'ry fairy tale comes realI'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 recallI 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, 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 recallI 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 recallI really don't know life at all.
Jeg elsker albummet med Joni Mitchell, som er købt efter jeg så "Love Actually", som er en absolut ynglingsfilm. Jeg er vild med hendes lyd og autensitet. Det her nummer sifger mig så meget om livet, der for mig har været en blanding af store mundfulde sorg, lykke, frustration, glæde, søgen efter meningen og fundet af meningen. Livet er fyldt med clouds - men man skal hele tiden vælge om man vil se dem som grå og kedelige eller som nogen man skal lære noget af. meningen for mig med livet er, at jeg er her for at lære og livet viser mig vejen og sparker mig i røven, når jeg trænger til det. Det er min slags Gud - det jeg tror på!

Undskylder for de to huller i teksten, men hvis man hører musikken, så burde det hele give mening!
