Joni Mitchell~Both sides now

Joni Mitchell 1943年11月7 日出生在加拿大的阿爾伯達,她在二十幾歲時寫下了這首經典歌曲,被許多的知名歌者翻唱過!三十幾年後,她自己詮釋了這首歌!她用著沙啞的嗓子,低吟著這首歌!每次聽她自己唱這首歌,總會錯覺得以為她正對我們訴說著自己的故事!Joni從小是個小兒麻痺者,脊椎扭曲!或者因為她身體的缺殘,她感覺自己是被世界遺棄的~

從前的她憤世嫉俗,質疑上帝的存在!1965年左右,愛情遺棄了她!~她在家人朋友都不知情的情況下,生下了一個女兒~
因為當時的她窮困潦倒!於是在女兒八個月大時,不得不將女兒送給人領養,這種身為母親的至痛及內心的煎熬,隱約可以在她的創作裡感受到!
人生有時候,就有如一齣嘲諷的戲碼!就在她將女兒送人後的未來短短幾年,她成名了,可是加拿大的嚴格收養制度裡.........轉載自:

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
