both sides now lyrics – sammy hagar

there’s another side to everything
connected like the ring around your finger
and i know this like i know myself
not very well, yet i’m no stranger

but it won’t be long
i see both sides now

when nothing’s gained, then something’s lost
pay half the price at twice the cost
we’re crystallized, we stand alone
conviction holds us like a stone, oh yeah

but i know it won’t be long
’cause i see both sides now

yeah, we got to learn how to listen before we learn to talk
we got to learn how to crawl before we learn to walk
and if you want a little peace, sometimes you got to fight
we got to walk through the darkness, oh
before we stand in the light, oh yeah

but i know it won’t be long
i see both sides now

we’re always somewhere in between
we never taste the sweet extreme
and we’re crystallized, we stand alone
conviction holds us like a stone

i know it won’t be long
i see both sides now

well, we got to learn how to listen before we learn to talk
you got to learn to crawl before you learn to walk
if you want a little peace, well, sometimes you got to fight
got to walk through the darkness, oh
before you stand in the light, oh yeah

and i know it won’t be long
i see both sides now
come on

well, we got to learn how to listen before we learn to talk
you got to learn to crawl before you learn to walk
if you want a little peace, well, sometimes you got to fight
got to walk through the darkness, oh
before you stand in the light, oh yeah

i know it won’t be long
i see both sides now

both sides now
both sides now
come on, both sides now
oh baby come on, both sides now
oh yeah, both sides now
i see both sides now
i see both sides now
