lyrics

MIRROR TO YOUR HEART

Words & Music by: Piet Louter



When you’re looking in the mirror and think poorly of yourself,
You got the tendency to smash it; you wanna be somebody else.
Pulling faces, just to look like somebody, you admire,
You try to imitate his nature to carry out your heart’s desire.

But whatever you may act to flee the person, that you are,
You’ll find yourself to be acting out of the part.
Cause there’s someone always holding up a mirror to your heart,
Who used to be always just around the corner.


So that doesn’t help your matters and it really gets you down.
You hang between giving up and holding your ground.
But more and more you come to see, there will be nothing else
But take that steady rule, that you can’t deny yourself.

So whatever you may act to flee the person, that you are,
You’ll find yourself to be acting out of the part.
Cause there’s someone always holding up a mirror to your heart,
Who used to be always just around the corner.


Till you know just somebody, who has done something cool,
Who gives you a turn, cause he’s looking like you.
And makes you stop loathing the mirror to your heart,
That used to be always just around the corner.
