The mirror always lies

(Back to index of lyrics)

 

When I look at you

I see such grace and beauty

When I look at you  

When I look at you

I see such grace and beauty

I see the way that things were meant to be

 

You captivate me

You captivate me

 

The mirror always lies                    

It shouts out imperfections

The mirror always lies

The mirror always lies

Don’t look for validation

Don’t look for validation in its glass

 

You captivate me

You captivate me

 

The longing never filled (all drops back here?)

The craving and the pain                                               

Can be dissolved in pools of love and mercy

We are not simply pawns

Victims in some game                                                        

We are planned and known and loved and wanted

 

CHORUS:

Light a candle in the dark               

See the shadows fly see the shadows fly

Light a candle in the dark

See yourself through my eyes, see yourself as I do

You’re beautiful!

 

We stand on precipices

waiting for the day                                       

the day we think our life will start

Held back by images

of who we think You are

When You are love itself!

 

CHORUS: light a candle in the dark….

 

CODA:

Women of truth arise

Refusing all of the lies

Women of truth arise.

Refuting all of thelies

Women of truth arise.

 

When I look at you

I see what you were made for

When I look at you

When I look at you

I only see perfection

My one desire is for you to be free.
