In the reflection I see you
So broken inside
On reflection I should have tried more
In the reflection I see so many secrets that hide
On reflection I was a closed door

In the mirror she stands
A face from the past
A victim of life and of choicesΒ Β 
A failure at work, a failure at love
A head full of negative voices

In the waters of love I see her
I forgive her for all of the pain
I forgive her for tossing my dreams to the side
And for throwing my hopes to the rain

In the reflection now stands a figure
So proud and incredibly free
On reflection I thank her for guiding me here
To all that I know I can be
