Broken Mirror

Written By: Bryan Forrest

Broken Mirror - lyrics

When you see yourself in someone else, it's a mirror to your soul.
like every secret thought has been laid bare.
You can view your life in a whole new light, as each new page unfolds
into a story the two of you might share.

They say a broken mirror brings you seven years of pain
seven years of bad luck, maybe more...
So what cosmic retribution does the universe provide
when your lover's not your mirror anymore?

The remnants of my mirror lay broken in my heart,
littering the corners of my mind.
I've cut my self too many times on the many broken shards
of shattered dreams of a love no longer mine.

They say a broken mirror brings you seven years of pain
seven years of bad luck, maybe more...
So what cosmic retribution does the universe provide
when your lover's not your mirror anymore?

Seven years or seventy, you never will be free
though you try to convince yourself in vain.
Every new relationship must tiptoe through the broken glass
and be gentle with the scars that still remain.

They say a broken mirror brings you seven years of pain
seven years of bad luck, maybe more...
So what cosmic retribution does the universe provide
when your lover's not your mirror anymore?
