There's a girl in my mirror whose staring back at me,
Tears and a heart broken are what my eyes see.
The fear in her eyes & the sadness in her tears,
She looks so familiar, as if I'd known her for years.
Theres a fire in her eyes thats burning her inside,
But no one is able to put it out, even if they tried.
When a ray of light shines, she forgets to frown,
But its not long after her smile starts to fall down.
I try to tell her its going to be OK, but shes so afraid,
How do I tell her that in time her loneliness will fade.
She's been struck by lightening entering a storm
Why isn't someone there trying to keep her warm?
She tries to hold back her tears before they fall,
But she feels like she's worthless and lost her all.
Looking past me she wonders of the unknown,
That look of horror in her mind is so clearly shown.
I wonder how she manages to fall asleep at night,
If she has a bad dream, does she turn on the light?
And when she talks, a single thing cannot be heard,
What happen to the beautiful wings of this little bird?
Deep down she wishes, for the horrible pain to end,
But every morning she wakes up & cries over again.
And then I realize.. I can't believe what my eyes see,
That the girl staring back at me in the mirror, is me.
