Judy Collins

Judy Collins', "Both Sides Now "
Better Lyrics:
Better (additional) lyrics to end the song.

Sharp pains right here in my chest
brought on by cardiac arrest.
Falling down and lying there
not breathing any air.
CPR to revive me.
Then on to bypass surgery.
Intensive Care and then some rest
for my recovery.
I've looked at Death from both sides now;
been there and back and still some how
it's Death's illusions I recall
I really don't know Death at all.


Original Lyrics:
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 every 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

Judy Collins', "Clouds"
Better Lyrics:
Floppy feet and rainbow hair,
Confetti flying through the air,
And seltzer bottles everywhere--
I've looked at clowns that way...
But now they only wreck my fun,
They throw cream pies at everyone--
So many times I'd turn and run,
But clowns got in my way...
I've looked at clowns from both sides now,
In tiny cars, and still somehow
It's clowns on trikes that I recall;
I really don't know clowns...at all.
Original Lyrics:
Rows and floes of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons ev’rywhere
I’ve looked at clouds that way
But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on ev’ryone
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 clouds' illusions I recall,
I really don’t know clouds at all.
