[Verse]
You can always sense (with me)
When things ain't (quite right)
I barely speak (I can't seem)
To sit still (tight)
There's many things (that run n pass)
Through my (mind)
It's hard to show (when you're)
The only one (with your eyes)

[Pre-chorus]
Life expects me (to be strong)
Doesn't always mean (I've got to)
Sing that song (need to take it)
Easy on yourself (I need to take it)
(Easy on myself)

[Chorus]
I've been picking lil fights (with the)
Girl in the mirror (with the)
Girl in the mirror (stressing me)
(To be a woman )
Oh I don't need this (today)
I don't know quite (what to say)
(To the girl in the mirror)
I've been picking lil fights (with the)
Girl in the mirror (with the)
Girl in the mirror (mirror)
Mirror (mirror)
Picking lil fights (with the)
Girl in the mirror (with the)
Girl in the mirror (mirror)
Mirror (mirror)

[Verse]
Take this time (to think)
(Things out right)
Coz when I'm weak (all I seem)
To do is fight
There's many ways that (I could say)
I'm not fine (instead I hold it back)
With water filling (my eyes)

[Pre-chorus]
Life expects me (to be strong)
Doesn't always mean (I've got to)
Sing that song (need to take it)
Easy on yourself (I need to take it)
(Easy on myself)

[Chorus]
I've been picking lil fights (with the)
Girl in the mirror (with the)
Girl in the mirror (stressing me)
(To be a woman )
Oh I don't need this (today)
I don't know quite (what to say)
(To the girl in the mirror)
I've been picking lil fights (with the)
Girl in the mirror (with the)
Girl in the mirror (mirror)
Mirror (mirror)
Picking lil fights (with the)
Girl in the mirror (with the)
Girl in the mirror (mirror)
Mirror (mirror)

    Knowing you should give yourself a break, but everytime you look in the mirror you find yourself fighting with yourself. Feel as though you need to be a woman but your trapped being a girl.

    Love this song and her album sooo much! It really expresses how she feels about herself and her breakup with cole, even though she broke up with the bastard a while ago now...
