The Face In The Mirror

Look through my eyes and tell me who you see in the mirror?
You see a girl oh so bright, oh so sweet and oh so full of life?
But is that really me?
All I see is a broken faith, a heart torn apart and a false lie of a life
Don't you see the real me?
I can't escape myself, I'm driving myself insane with all these thoughts inside my mind
How can you see me but not my soul?
Every time I look into that mirror I look away in fright of what faces me
I can't find myself, where am I?
Or better yet who am I? Where did I lose myself? When did I forget who I was?
It's been so long, so many years past I can't remember.
All I know is that the face staring back at me in the mirror isn't me.

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
