lyrics

Mirror, Mirror

A righteous dream, a petty thought,
A batted lash, and you got caught.
And over there the light seeps through,
From under cracks and edges true.

So paint for me a story, if you can,
When life was plain but plenty grand,
Before the times when I got lost,
When life was lived at any cost.

I’ll share with you a piece of fruit,
And offer you word or two.
I’ll shape for you tiny little clues.
I’ll sing to you my worried blues,
I’ll sing to you my worried blues,
When all that’s missing are the pointed cues,
Of painted lies and diluted truths.

Oh mirror, mirror if you could,
Reflect the piece of me that’s good.
I’ll promise you my weight in gold,
To know the things that mirrors know.

As gardens wither up and die,
Winter shares it’s bitter eye.
In spring I’ll meet you in the dew,
Of morning’s prayers we hardly knew.

I’ll share with you a piece of fruit,
And offer you word or two.
I’ll shape for you tiny little clues.
I’ll sing to you my worried blues,
I’ll sing to you my worried blues,
When all that’s missing are the pointed cues,
Of painted lies and diluted truths.

I’ll share with you a piece of fruit,
And offer you word or two.
I’ll shape for you tiny little clues.
I’ll sing to you my worried blues,
I’ll sing to you my worried blues,
When all that’s missing are the pointed cues,
Of painted lies and diluted truths.
