mirror me

when i stare into the mirror,
what is it i see?
i see my own reflection
staring back at me

but then i look deep within,
the mirror of my soul
i see my present, and my past
and what the future holds

i see myself as what i am
and what i could have been
i see the shadow side of me
thats hidden deep within

as i stare at my reflection
staring back through my own eyes
i see myself as others do
but i also see the lies

the mirror rids me of disguise
of hatred, truth and tears
i see myself through my own eyes
and see my deepest fears

maybe i should end it all
so many ways to die
i lean up againts my wall
and suddenly begin to cry

the tears stream down my face
as i begin to say goodbye
goodbye sunshine, goodbye mummy
cant say i didnt try..

then i looked into the mirror
and see me standing there
a troubled, lost and lonely child
with tearstrained cheeks and matted hair

well, mirror thanks for being there
but its time i stepped away
its time my mask came off for good
the real me is here to stay.

now its too late for you and your white horse, to catch me now..

Say you're sorry
That face of an angel
Comes out just when you need it to
As I paced back and forth all this time
Cause I honestly believed in you
Holding on
The days drag on
Stupid girl,
I should have known, I should have known

I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairy tale,
I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet,
Lead her up the stairwell
This ain't Hollywood, this is a small town,
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down,
Now it's too late for you and your white horse to come around

Baby I was naive,
Got lost in your eyes
And never really had a chance
My mistake, I didn't know to be in love
You had to fight to have the upper hand
I had so many dreams
About you and me
Happy endings
Now I know

I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairy tale,
I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet,
Lead her up the stairwell
This ain't Hollywood, this is a small town,
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down,
Now it's too late for you and your white horse to come around

And there you are on your knees,
Begging for forgiveness, begging for me
Just like I always wanted but I'm so sorry

Cause I'm not your princess, this ain't a fairytale,
I'm gonna find someone someday who might actually treat me well
This is a big world, that was a small town
There in my rear view mirror disappearing now
And it's too late for you and your white horse
Now it's too late for you and your white horse to catch me now
