Through the mirror of my mind
Time after time
I see reflections of you and me
Reflections of the way like used to be
Reflections of the love you took from me
Oh I'm all alone now, no love to shield me
Trapped in a world that's
A distorted reality
Happiness you took from me
And left me alone with only memories
Through the mirror of my mind
Through these tears that I'm crying
Reflects a hurt I can't control
'Cause although you're gone
I keep holding on
To the happy time
Ooh when you were mine
As I peer through the window of lost time
Looking over my yesterday
And all the love I gave, all in vain
All the love that I've wasted
All the tears that I've tasted
All the pain
Through the hollow of my tears
I'll see a dream that's lost
From the hurt that you have caused
Everywhere I turn
Seems like everything I see
Reflects a love that used to be
In you I put all my faith and trust
Right before my eyes my world
Has turned to dust
After all the nights I sat alone and wept
Just a handful of promises are
All that's left
Oh loving you
Reflections of the way life used to be
Reflections of the love you took from me
In you I put all my faith and trust
Right before my eyes
My world has turned to dust
