Both Sides Now

When a fellow writer asked for 365 days worth of prompts, I thought of my Sing Along section and all the stuff that I’ve been influenced by or thought about writing something for. Now that I’m going to be adding to the Kabobble’s Choice section daily, I figured that I should use my own prompts as well. It’ll be interesting to see how one set of lyrics influences two different people.

The set I gave her was this one:

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

Me, of course, I ended up taking in a lot more than that by looking at the lyrics again and listening to the song on repeat.

So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way

Kabobbles Sing Along is just what I think when I hear songs. I sometimes see images when I hear lyrics, pictures or movies in my head. Sometimes I relate it to stories. My interpretation of the songs and lyrics are probably nothing like their original intent.
