I forgot how much it hurts to see you cry
And just how innocent the world seemed when you smiled
There was a little kiss in the back of the car
Looking right at me, his eyes filled with the stars
A face so happy and so true
In that moment he reminded me of you

I've seen that face looking back at me
It's like a mirror reflecting everything
A faded distant memory
Pulling at my heart

I wanted to protect to you from any pain
Keep you close to me, so you would always feel safe
You know how much I love you, my sweet precious child
I would do anything, I would walk through a fire
I see part of me in you
And when you look at me it all comes shining through

I've seen that face looking back at me
It's like a mirror reflecting everything
A faded distant memory
Pulling at my heart
