Mirror

Mirror lyrics by Morissette

Just the other day
When I saw you face to face
I almost didn’t recognize you
Tried to look away
Pretend to not know what to say
But there was no way to avoid you

Tryna gather up the strength to say what’s on my mind
But we’re speechless, frozen, trapped in time

CHORUS:
I can’t avoid you forever
Unless I stop looking in the mirror
Gotta face my fears
Gotta face myself
Embrace the imperfection
That makes me nobody else
‘Cuz I don’t wanna loose myself to this

Scared to be alone
I’m a stranger in my home
I’m giving into all the voices
Trying to be strong
When all the lights are on
Don’t know how much longer I can take it

Tired of the hide and seek
Pretending to be blind
I gotta fight it, gotta fight it

‘Bout to take my demons on
And look them in the eye
‘Cuz I won’t let them win this time

CHORUS:
I can’t avoid you forever
Unless I stop looking in the mirror
Gotta face my fears
Gotta face myself
Embrace the imperfection
That makes me nobody else
‘Cuz I don’t wanna loose myself to this

It’s time to be kind
To your past
present and future self
Let go of the faces
The layers and traces
Of hatred
Gotta forgive myself

It takes time
Be a tree not a vine
Everyday’s another chance
With all that is in me
Taking back all my sanity
And love me for who I am

CHORUS:
I can’t avoid you forever
Unless I stop looking in the mirror
Gotta face my fears
Gotta face myself
Embrace the imperfection that makes me nobody else

Wipe away the tears
Look within yourself
Your reflection is more than an empty shell

‘Cause I’m not gonna lose myself
No I’m not gonna lose myself
