Look at me when I’m talking to you, you are talking to me but I’m looking straight through
I see pain but you’re hiding your pride, I see your disguise and I know you are not satisfied.
With what you’ve left unaccomplished, I can see you trying to hide.
I can see the truth, and I can see all the lies,
I can see them through your eyes.
You don’t need to do this, we are all alone in here when I’m all alone here.
Guilt is what I see behind the shame.
The window pane is what I see your soul through
I see all the scars carried over time
I see you HUGH, I’m looking at the mirror on the wall
I see my daughter smiling, and change is coming, I see change more clearly,
and I’m starting with the man in the mirror.
You’ve been the only one that helps me see clearer
I’m the man in that mirror
I like what I see now, compared to the past
I finally slowed down from living life too fast.
You understand the man I am, and here we are talking again
You’ve been my best friend, and here we are again.
Except now you’re a fan
All because now I am a better man
Now I even look good in broken mirrors,
Light one up, to see the smoke in the mirror
Finally, you talk back to me and I like what I see
And now when I smile, you smile back at me.
