both sides now...

(this perfectly describes my state of state of state of existence!!)

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 recall,
I really don't know clouds, at all.

Moons and Junes and ferris wheels,
The 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 '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.

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 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.

sometimes life actually plays tricks on ya..somehow i could connect to your post.
The point where u just find yourself confused and lost in a crowd, going out with frens - hanging out and still dont feel a part of it.. its hurtful actually.., trying to run away but still dont know where and form what..
Its hard to cope up with sometimes, but thats life as u say.. If its showing you it this side, then no sooner you are definitely going to have the other side of it.. the brighter one.. and where all the questions will be answered.. but the bigger question is when does it happen...

I am really sorry, i really doubt if my words really made sense to you.. but dat is what came to mind and it just got spilled on ur wall.. :)
