LyricsEdit

Mirror
Can you hear me?
Do I reach you?
Are you even listening?
Can I get through?

There's a part of me that's desperate for changes,
Tired of being treated like a pawn
But there's a part of me that stares back
from inside the mirror
Part of me that's scared I might be wrong
That I can't be strong.

I've been afraid
never standing on my own
I let you be the keeper of my pride
Believed you when you told me
I was nothing on my own
Listen when I say
I swear it here today
I will not surrender
this life is mine

Amazing how you conquered me,
Chained me in servility
and made me see
The world the way you told me to
But I was young, and didn't have a
way to know the truth

Born to live your legacy,
Existing just to fill your needs,
A casualty of this so-called "family"
That you have turned into a travesty

But I don't intend to suffer any longer
Here's where your dominion falls apart
I'm shattering the mirror
that kept me split in pieces
That stood between my mind and my heart
This is where I'll start

I'm not your pet
not another thing you own
I was not born guilty of your crimes
Your riches and your influence
can't hold me anymore
I won't be possessed
burdened by your royal test
I will not surrender
this life is mine

Shame that it took so long
to rescue me
From the guilt you used
to tie me to your family tree

I guess your training failed
you're not in charge I'm free
Your patriarchal prison won't hold me

Now this conversation's finally over,
Mirror Mirror, now we're done
I've pulled myself together now
My mind and heart are one
Finally one.

I'm not your pet
not another thing you own
I was not born guilty of your crimes
Your riches and your influence
can't hold me anymore
I won't be possessed
burdened by your royal test
I will not surrender, this life is mine
