Barlow Girl – Mirror lyrics

Mirror, Mirror on the wall, Have I got it?
'Cause Mirror you've always told me who I am
I'm finding it's not easy to be perfect
So sorry you won't define me
Sorry you don't own me

Who are you to tell me
That I'm less than what I should be?
Who are you? Who are you?, yeah
I don't need to listen
To the list of things I should do
I won't try, no, I won't try

Mirror I am seeing a new reflection
I'm looking into the eyes of He who made me
And to Him I have beauty beyond compare
I know He defines me, yeah,

Who are you to tell me
That I'm less than what I should be?
Who are you? Who are you?, yeah
I don't need to listen
To the list of things I should do
I won't try, no, I won't try

You don't define me, you don't define me,
You don't define me, you don't define me.

Who are you to tell me
That I'm less than what I should be?
Who are you? Who are you?, yeah, yeah
I don't need to listen
To the list of things I should do
I won't try, no, I won't try, yeah, yeah

Who are you to tell me
That I'm less than what I should be?
Who are you? Who are you?, yeah, yeah
I don't need to listen
To the list of things I should do
I won't try, no, I won't try, yeah, yeah

    This is absolutely beautiful. Self-reflection in the mirror. She is asking the reflection, "who are you to tell me that i'm less than what i should be? " beautiful song. I could see myself in a room filled with nothing but a mirror, and me in a chair in front of it; and a single window, light pouring in but unable to reach me. I felt like I was reaching out to touch the mirror, saying, "you don't define me. "

    I am an orphan kid from africa. I was taken in by a missionary family. People kept telling me who I should be and what I should be. When I listen to this song, I can close my eyes and open my heart to him. He is the only voice in my head that I need to listen. I don't need to be judged by the world. All I have is to try must best to follow what is laid down by him to be a christian and remember that is what matters the most. He is the light that guides my steps. Thank you for the song. Music is a huge part of who I am. It was music that lead me to christ and keeps on supporting me as I go through challenges in my life.

    This song means so much to me:)
    its encouragment to not let society, or your school, or your jerk ex boyfriend tell you if you've "got it" because God made you for so much more than this world is telling you. We are all beautiful and are ment to feel that way. Esther knew she was beautiful and that ended up helping her courage when she went before the king to ask him to spare her peoples lives. We just need to remember who really defines us, its Him, the one who created us:)

    I only just discovered Barlow Girl; I think they're beautiful and it's original to have a Christian rock genre that you don't have to be Christian to enjoy, I'm not. Mirror is my favourite of their songs. It's so difficult to be perfect, but your appearance shouldn't define you. It should be the way others think of you and the way you think of yourself than the way you are seen for your body. This song levels between upsetting and happy; in a way it is a joyful song as the girl discovers she no longer lets her reflection define her, and in a way it is an upsetting song with hidden meanings, to some people. Barlow Girl, keep it up.
