lyrics

Mercury, against a sheath of black
Mocks the image the silver echoes back
Half darkness, half light… in the mirror

Glass shatters, and my soul splits apart
No music or lyric in the heart
Half human, half gargoyle…in the mirror

An instrument of cruelty
The mirror’s bitter truth
Reflecting all that I am not
Projecting dying hope, fading youth

But then I saw her...I loved her...in the mirror

Innocence, and a soul purely born
A fragile girl, forsaken and forlorn
Half child, half woman...in the mirror

I need her, and I will not be denied
My passion, I can no longer hide
Half siren, half angel...in the mirror

An instrument of cruelty
The mirror’s bitter truth
Reflecting all that I am not
Projecting dying hope, fading youth

But then I saw her....I loved her in the mirror

The flame is kindled, at last our souls unite
Sparks of glory melt winter blight
Our music soars, the light is in her song
A distant dream where phantoms don’t belong

Her touch, her tears
Half love, half fear
Her sigh, her kiss
Half pain, half bliss

Do I hope, may I dream, should I dare believe
Does the mirror speak the truth, or does the glass deceive
Could she be mine, my love my bride
Or will she turn away, and cast the fool aside

Will she love this broken-hearted angel, will I finally be free
from the beast looking back at me....in the mirror
