Both Sides Now (Sincere apologies to Joni Mitchell:)

Hope and promises of change

Tales of honor in exchange

Advertisements getting strange

Elections are that way

 

But now they only block the sun

They rain and snow on everyone

So many things I wish were done

Elections block the way

 

I’ve looked at them from both sides now

From up and down, and still somehow

In their delusions I recall

I don’t like lies at all

 

But now it’s just another show

They leave us crying as they go

And if you dare, don’t let them know

Don’t give your vote away

 

Seen politics from both sides now

From give and take, and still somehow

In their delusions I recall

They really have no love at all

 

Oh 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 each election day

Seen elections from both sides now

From WIN and LOSE and still somehow

In their delusions I recall

I really don’t like lies at all

 

I’ve looked at lies from both sides now

From up and down and still somehow

It’s in delusions I recall

I really don’t like lies at all
