Look at me,
I will never pass for a perfect bride,
Or a perfect daughter.
Can it be, I'm not meant to play this part.
Now I see,
That if I were truly to be myself
I would break my family's heart

Who is that girl I see
Staring straight, back at me
Why is my reflection someone I don't know
Somehow I cannot hide, who I am
Though I've tried.
When will my reflection show who I am inside.

When will my reflection show who I am inside.

    For this means:
    No one can change who you are, but your'e doing it because of your family.
    You don't want to break your family's heart, that's why you're doing that you cannot do
