You Are My Mirror

Updated on March 30, 2015

If you don’t mean it
Then don’t say it
If you can’t live with it
Don’t even think it
Because tomorrow will come
And I will have acted upon it

You don’t know anything about me
There has been so much talking
But there has never been a night
Time has nowhere to go
And what we think we know
Is only what we want to know

You know I’m not society
Or the answer to your dreams
I’m only a moment never to forget
But then your life will stay behind
And I will be gone
While love will be left to close the blinds

It is easy for me to say these things
To be so sure about who I am
And how immune to love I can be
But is the fear of love
The fear of life
Or what I am made of?

A woman is a mirror
It’s not always what she says
It’s how she suffers
And I know it to be true
But how can I live looking at myself
Even if I’m in love with you?

I can’t imagine your feelings
Not that empathy is void
But it is too much sometimes
For all that you see
Is how I’ve failed you
And everything you wanted from me
