Mirrors Don't Lie


As I watch my self in the mirror
I am fully aware
Of the cool blank eyes
That at me stare
For these eyes don’t cry
But they very well know
Mirrors don’t lie

As I watch in horror
My face labeled with every sin
I cry in despair
As the realization sinks in
I know that my soul has now given in
But the fact my heart denies
That mirrors don’t tell lies

How can every sin
Find a way in my soul
How can every day
Turn as black as coal
I find the answers
As I look at me
My eyes defy
But my heart knows the reality
That even if I defy
Who can say mirrors lie?

Then I knew that it’s too late
I walk in tunnel
accepting fate
I know the light has gone out
As I have gone astray
And now looking in the mirror
I see the scars
The mask of falsehood
Is behind bars
I now have a battered soul
Which still defies
And says
Mirrors do please tell lies
