Sheila Smith 132 Grenfell Tower

Posted in Uncategorized on June 18, 2017 by thecockneybard

I dedicate this song to my friend Sheila Smith lost in the Grenfell Tower. My shock has been replaced by anger. I couldn’t imagine in those times we drank coffee in Holland Park and wiled away the hours talking about Politics, Shakespeare, The Templars you would one day be in the news, not for something wonderful you did in your life, but something so horrific to end it. You were a special part of my journey and will always be remembered for that! A very special person indeed x
#Grenfelltower

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’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all
Moons and Junes and ferries 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 they’re 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
Songwriters: Joni Mitchell

It makes me cry as I wonder why? It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all.
