In The Mirror


I see the man in the mirror and all that he's become
From all that he once was, and all that he has done
He's standing taller now, so determined
He seems so much clearer tha when this had begun
Gone is the shadow of the fear of things to come
He's truly living now, so full of purpose
And I owe it all to you

And I'm proud to be that man in the mirror
I've never seen my world so clearly before
I'm proud to say that I couldn't be nearer
to the truth of all I have to live for

I see the face in the mirror and fingers trace the lines
that hint of another life and a different time
I'm so much stronger now, so full of fire
The future's so much nearer I'm on the borderline
Through simplifed design, I see the face is mine
I can't suppress a smile, I'm getting higher
And I owe it all to you

And I'm proud to be that man in the mirror
I've never seen my world so clearly before
I'm proud to say that I couldn't be nearer
to the truth of all I have to live for

I look back on the things I have done
The people I hurt and the people I love
I crawled out of the darkness and into the sun
And I found myslf on a plane of glass
the mirror finally shows who I really am

And I'm proud to be that man in the mirror
I've never seen my world so clearly before
I'm proud to say that I couldn't be nearer
to the truth of all I have to live for
And I'm proud to be that man in the mirror
I've never seen my world so clearly before
I'm proud to say that I couldn't be nearer
to the truth of all I have to live for

I see myself in the mirror and all that I've become
From all that I once was, and all that I have done
I'm standing taller now, so determined
And I owe it all to you
