Audio

Mirror Mirror[1] is Weiss Schnee's music theme, featured in the "White" Trailer and incorporated in the RWBY Volume 1 Soundtrack.

Composition

The song opens with the piano playing a quiet melody before Casey Lee Williams' vocals enter. The main refrain is sung once before the music begins to build in volume and tempo, with strings and percussion entering. The music builds up, with the piano playing fast runs and fills.

The music then adopts a quieter dynamic, as Casey sings an aria. Over the last verse the music swells to a crescendo, before falling away as Casey sings the last line, "I'm the loneliest of all.".

The piece is primarily in the key of A minor, however the last line is sung over an A major chord, a Picardy third, bringing resolution to the piece.

Lyrics

Mirror, tell me something,
Tell me who's the loneliest of all?

Mirror, tell me something,
Tell me who's the loneliest of all?
Fear of what's inside of me,
Tell me can a heart be turned to stone?

Mirror, mirror, what's behind you?
Save me from the things I see!
I can keep it from the world,
Why won't you let me hide from me?

Mirror, mirror, tell me something,
Who's the loneliest of all?

I'm the loneliest of all.[2]
