Both Sides Now

Joni Mitchell

Rows and flows of angel's hair
And icecream castles in the air
And feathered canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and they 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, but still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all.

Moon and Junes and Ferris wheels
That dizzy dancing way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way.

But now it's just another show
You leave them 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, but 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, but something's gained
In living every day.

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

  1. JM's language is so rich in color and the words circle round and round, another example is Chealsea Morning. :)

  2. Leonard Cohen cũng đã là nhà thơ đấy chứ! Trùng hợp là trước khi đọc entry này thì tôi vừa được coi xong phim "Leonard Cohen:I'm Your Man" trên kênh StarMovies (ở VN):)

  3. Joni Mitchell còn có album "Shine", có lẽ là album mới nhất của cô ấy với những ca từ trải nghiệm đậm chất thơ. Anh thử dịch xem, sẽ rất thú vị.
    Btw, Both sides now anh dịch hay lắm :)
