"My Human Mirror" Lyrics Originally posted September 2013

Have you ever met someone (not related to you) that is so similar to you that it scares you? Someone who shares the same personality, habits, mannerisms? If this happens what do you call that person?  How about your human mirror?

I met my human mirror about two years ago. My feelings are still mixed about this man, kind of a love/hate relationship.  Some days we could spend all day having a great time together and other days we couldn't stand each other. This is a song I wrote about that experience.

Lyrics by Stacy M Price AKA Malibu Ninja


WHEN I LOOK AT YOU, I SEE ME 
SCARY TO SEE YOURSELF
REFLECTED IN SOMEONE ELSE
WE ARE THE SAME, IN SO MANY WAYS
KNOWING YOU IS... KNOWING ME
BLIND IF YOU DON’T SEE
YOU ARE ME TO A "T"

~~Chorus~~
I SEE IN YOU THE THINGS I LOVE ABOUT ME
YOU WILL ALWAYS STAND OUT IN A CROWD 
EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU IS LOUD AND PROUD 
EVEN WHEN YOU ATTEMPT YOU CANNOT BLEND 
CAST A SHADOW ON ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS 
I SEE IN YOU THE THINGS I LOVE ABOUT ME 
TO BE SURER, I GET NEARER 
YOU ARE MY HUMAN MIRROR 
AT FIRST, THRILLING TO DISCOVER 

~~
OUR SIMILARITIES ARE CEASELESS
WORKED TO FIX OUR BROKEN PIECES
LEARNED WHO I AM EVALUATING YOU 
NOW ENLIGHTENED, TO SELF BE TRUE 
NOW BETTER PEOPLE, BRAND NEW 

YOU CAN INFUSE A RAINY DAY WITH SUNSHINE 
BUT I KNOW THE DARKNESS YOU HIDE INSIDE 
YOU AND ME ARE ALWAYS APOLOGIZING 
DONE NOTHING BUT GUILT IS RISING 
IF A SOULS IN NEED OF A KIND DEED 
WE GIVE THEM IT ALL UNTIL WE BLEED 
SHOULD LEARN BUT NEVER TAKE HEED, 
TOO NICE WE FALL VICTIM TO DECEPTION

~~Chorus~~
I SEE IN YOU THE THINGS I HATE ABOUT ME 
YOU DO WHATEVER WITHOUT QUESTION 
JUST EXPECTING EVERY ONE'S INGESTION 
MOST SWALLOW IT HOOK, LINE AND SINKER 
ALL WRAPPED UP ON YOUR LITTLE FINGER 
I SEE IN YOU THE THINGS I HATE ABOUT ME 
SELF-REFLECTION, WORSE THAN HORROR 
YOU ARE MY HUMAN MIRROR 
AT LAST, A NIGHTMARE TO BEHOLD

~~ 
GO AHEAD TRY TO CONCEAL YOUR TRUE SELF
HIDE YOURSELF FROM EVERYONE ELSE 
STILL CAN'T HIDE FROM YOUR MIRROR
IT WILL ALWAYS REFLECT YOU BACK
TRY AS YOU MIGHT YOU CAN'T FOOL YOURSELF

LET THEM SAY YOU’RE NOT GOOD ENOUGH 
DON’T BELIEVE IT, THEY CAN'T MEASURE UP
WHEN YOUR GAME OF CHARADES IS DONE
SEEK ME OUT, I WILL FORGIVE YOUR ERRORS
ABOVE ALL ELSE, I'LL LET YOU BE YOURSELF

MY HUMAN MIRROR, ISN'T IT ALL CLEARER
EVERY MIRROR, EVERY WINDOW OR PUDDLE 
EVERY REFLECTION IT'S ME YOU SEE
I WILL REMIND YOU WITHOUT ANY TROUBLE
IT'S ME WHO KNOWS YOU LIKE NO ONE OTHER
