In The Mirror


She sits in the darkness
trying to be free
how can she ever tell
anyone what she's done to herself?
She feels like she has no worth,
no value to her name.
All because of a little girth,
her heart is filled with shame
at that girl in the mirror.

She's trying to cope with low esteem
and doesn't realize that she's loved.
She feels like she needs to scream
but like no one will hear, it's a bad dream
turning into a nightmare
not noticing that people stop and stare
at that girl in the mirror.

She stares at the reflection
and all she sees are mistakes.
She doesn't want to deal with rejections;
she's afraid to fail, so her opportunities are down the drain
she has a deep hatred for herself.
At that girl in the mirror.

But one day she meets the one
who makes her believe in life.
Who opens the door to a better world
a world without agony and strife.
They are muirn beatha dans, soulmates,
redemption for mistakes
happiness's incarnate,
for that girl in the mirror.

Somehow the world's a gentler shade
falling in love is a scary thing,
but if you find the one
it changes the way you think
it feels like more fun
and then after a while
maybe the time has come
to finally smile
at that girl in the mirror,
at that girl in the mirror.
that girl in the mirror
is me.
