In the Mirror

I'm sitting across the mirror and I know who I am
It's a feeling I've been waiting for always
I see conflicts and scars written under my skin
Never taking my eyes off my reflected gaze

I'm sitting across the mirror and I know it's been long
Since I've been brave enough to study my face
I'm a question, an answer, the essence of both
Intertwining, interlocking, in me, encased

I'm a battle of trust
I'm a layer of rust
I'm proud, but I'm begging… that's just me

Chorus:
In the mirror
Is an endless illusion
A crazy confusion
Of black versus white
In the mirror
I'm a debate, I'm an answer
I'm asleep, I'm a dancer
Flowing with light…

I'm sitting across the mirror and I know I'm afraid
Here's my worst enemy and my greatest friend
The reason behind all my fears and my laughter
Though in her nerve I can't always depend

I'm sitting across the mirror and I know I'll survive
'Cause I know inside that girl is a woman
I don't have to dig, she'll shine out by herself
When she knows I deserve it for all I've done

I'm a play upon words
I'm a breeze for the birds
I'm strange, but I'm living… that's just me

Chorus

In the mirror…
I'm an image on the wall
It's broken light, after all
But in that light is me
Yeah, somewhere in that light is me…

I'm sitting across the mirror and I know who I am
I'm sitting across the mirror and I'm part of a plan
I'm sitting across the mirror and I know who I am
I'm sitting across the mirror and I know that I can

Chorus
And growing with all my might
