Name of Song: Mirror mirror on the wall

Mirror mirror on the wall,
I see what’s left from all my toil.
How I look and how I seem,
Shows to others just where I’ve been.

Standing back and looking at,
Can see myself, thin or fat.
Looking through my body shield,
Signs of where I tried to seal.

Chorus
Mirrors have no thought or view,
Reminding what I sorta knew.
Stay a while and calmly stare,
Observe oneself for what is there.

Mirror mirror on the wall,
I see what’s left from all my toil.
How I look and how I seem,
Shows to others just where I’ve been.

Getting used to who you are,
Even after all those scars.
Admiring everything you see,
Those things that make you want to flee.

Chorus
Mirrors have no thought or view,
Reminding what I sorta knew.
Stay a while and calmly stare,
Observe oneself for what is there.
______

When others look, do they look down?,
An apathetic feel abounds.
Or a nervous look from left to right,
You wonder if they are alright.

When you look, do you look down?,
Forgotten times ending in the ground?
Or do you look from left to right,
Deep within you don’t feel right.

Chorus
Mirrors have no thought or view,
Reminding what I sorta knew.
Stay a while and calmly stare,
Observe oneself for what is there.

Mirror mirror on the wall,
I see what’s left from all my toil.
How I look and how I seem,
It shows to others just where I’ve been.

Standing back and looking at,
Can see myself, thin or fat.
Looking through my body shield,
Signs of where I tried to seal.
