Week 24 Tom Petty – Wildflowers

You belong among the wildflowersYou belong in a boat out at seaSail away, kill off the hoursYou belong somewhere you feel free
Run away, find you a loverGo away somewhere all bright and newI have seen no otherWho compares with you
You belong among the wildflowersYou belong in a boat out at seaYou belong with your love on your armYou belong somewhere you feel free
Run away, go find a loverRun away, let your heart be your guideYou deserve deepest of coverYou belong in that home by and by
You belong among the wildflowersYou belong somewhere close to meFar away from your trouble and worryYou belong somewhere you feel freeYou belong somewhere you feel free

Week 23 Joni Mitchell at age 80 wins Folk Album of the year. ……

Rows and floes of angel hairAnd ice cream castles in the airAnd feather canyons everywhereLooked at clouds that way
But now they only block the sunThey rain and they snow on everyoneSo many things I would have doneBut clouds got in my way
I’ve looked at clouds from both sides nowFrom up and down and still somehowIt’s cloud illusions I recallI really don’t know clouds at all
Moons and Junes and Ferris wheelsThe dizzy dancing way that you feelAs every fairy tale comes realI’ve looked at love that way
But now it’s just another showAnd you leave ’em laughing when you goAnd if you care, don’t let them knowDon’t give yourself away
I’ve looked at love from both sides nowFrom give and take and still somehowIt’s love’s illusions that I recallI really don’t know loveI really don’t know love at all
Tears and fears and feeling proudTo say, “I love you, ” right out loudDreams and schemes and circus crowdsI’ve looked at life that way
Oh, but now old friends, they’re acting strangeAnd they shake their heads and they tell me that I’ve changedWell, something’s lost, but something’s gainedIn living every day
I’ve looked at life from both sides nowFrom win and lose and still somehowIt’s life’s illusions I recallI really don’t know life at all
It’s life’s illusions that I recallI really don’t know lifeI really don’t know life at all
