lyrics

I stare laughing at a mirror
Finally being able to see clearly
Can’t you see I cannot do it, I just don’t have it in me
How could anyone ever pick out one voice in a sea?

I see lights casted over me, so bright that I can’t see
Oh, what happened to the day we packed our dreams away?
Well, mine just wouldn’t fit
Mirror mirror, I see myself in your balcony

I wish the world could only see me
I know it sounds a little greedy
I want everyone to listen, just don’t know how to do it
Give it to them for free just for the fame, I admit

I see lights casted over me, so bright that I can’t see
Oh, what happened to the day we packed our dreams away?
Well, mine just wouldn’t fit
Mirror mirror, I see myself in your balcony

Even though I have high hopes
I know I won’t rise above the noise
I’ll do it for myself
I’ll keep writing songs for fun
Because you do what you love

I stare laughing at a mirror
Finally being able to see clearly
Can’t you see I cannot do it, I just don’t have it in me
How could anyone ever pick out one voice in a sea?

I can see myself in it
I could leave this all behind
Lights so bright you feel the heat
A crowd so loud, it’s deafening
I can see myself in it
Fans all waiting in a line
Hear my songs all on repeat
Here, I’m on this magazine
I can see myself in it
Waving to my wife and kids
You can see it in my eyes
I would leave this all behind
