Written by Gerry Beckley, ©1994
Found on Hourglass.

I haven't seen forever
Don't even know her name
I call on dreams and other schemes
To try and win that game

Now that it's over, darling
Look into my eyes
Seein' your own reflection
Much to your surprise

We're seein' mirror to mirror
Face to face
We look but we cannot see
Mirror to mirror
Seems to trace
What happened to you and me

And though we tried in earnest
The distant silence yells
We call on wings and other things
To try and break that spell

Now that it's over, darling
Truth in the common cause
We stare at our own indifference
By seeing the other's flaws

We're seein' mirror to mirror
Face to face
We look but we cannot see
Mirror to mirror
Seems to trace
What happened to you and me

Oh, mirror to mirror, mirror to mirror
Mirror to mirror, what's come over me

As we look inside, there's nowhere to turn
There's nowhere to hide

Now that it's over, darling
Look into my eyes
Seein' your own reflection
Much to your surprise

We're seein' mirror to mirror
Face to face
We look but we cannot see
Mirror to mirror
Seems to trace
What happened to you and me

Oh, mirror to mirror, mirror to mirror
Mirror to mirror, what's come over me
Mirror to mirror, mirror to mirror
Mirror to mirror, what's come over me
