Текст песни с переводом слов Dream Theater «The Mirror» из альбома «Awake» (1994).
Why won't you leave me alone?
Lurking Every Corner, everywhere I go
Don't turn your back on me now
When I need you the most
Constant pressure tests my will
My will or my won't
My Self Control escapes from me still...
"???" (Sample from ???)
How could you be so cruel
and expect my faith in return?
Is not as hard as it seems
When you close the door
I spent so long trusting in you
I trust you forgot
Just when I thought I believed in you...
"What're you doing? (Sample is Meryl Streep from the )
What're you doing?" (film "Falling In Love". )
It's time for me to deal
Becoming all too real
living in fear-
Why did you lie and pretend?
This has come to an end
I'll never trust you again
It's time you made your amends
Look in the mirror my friend
"That I haven't behaved as I should" (Sample is Jeremy Irons from the )
(film "Damage". )
"Everything you need is around you. (Sample is Mary Beth Hurt from the)
The only danger is inside you." (film "Light Sleeper". )
"I thought you could control life, (Sample is Jeremy Irons from the )
but it's not like that. There are (film "Damage". )
things you can't control."
Let's stare the problem right in the eye
It's plagued me from coast to coast
Racing the clock to please everyone
All but the one who matters the most
Reflections of reality
are slowly coming into view
How in the hell could you possibly forgive me?
