The girl in the mirror
Has an expressionless face
The girl in the mirror
Has the tough 'don't mess with me' look
The girl in the mirror
Wears grungy jeans
Funky clothes and hairstyles
The girl in the mirror
Scorns authority
And detests conformity
And the girl in the mirror
Has my face

The girl in my soul
Is shy
And scared
And self concious
And fears rejection
And being laughed at
And secretly craves approval
And love
And acceptance
All the things
The girl in the mirror
Would deem unimportant

The girl in the mirror
Has a loud outspoken manner
Outlandish clothes
And a personality
That screams 'notice me'
All so the girl in my soul
Won't get lost in the crowd
Who would I be,
Without the girl in the mirror?
Would I still be worth knowing?
Would I still be interesting?
Or just another face in the crowd
Rushing to keep up
With the rest of the world

I'm not sure
If I want to know the answer
Because I might not like it
So I guess I'll just keep on being
The girl in the mirror
