No Use For A Name - Life Size Mirror
Life Size Mirror
She was done before the start,
Always mending broken hearts;
Making others miserable,
Not knowing who she's hurting.
Father said this day would be
One for everyone to see!
Is it true you'll follow suit,
And have you learned a thing?
It's just a selfish way to go!
It's safe to say she'll never know;
For every person, there's a whole life story waiting to be told.
When she is happy, it's okay!
But when these people start to fade,
Then we'll just watch her self-destruct as she gets old.
She put up defensive shields
To walk through all of life's minefields;
All defined by make-up,
And a car behind she's hiding.
Father, do you have to go?
Left me questions, I don't know
Any answers or even close;
The lifetime lie was true.
She's going to move on with her life,
And take it one heart at a time!
And watch the little girl inside her wait behind as she moves on.
But with this black heart, she decides
Who she'll take in and shove aside!
Until the day she sees that everyone is gone...
Getting used to people leaving,
Thinking true love is deceiving!
Soon she'll know how lonely it can be...
Now, was it really worth the pain?
A couple of pills make her feel sane,
As she lives out the story written for the part she is to play!
With so much shame for her to hide,
There's no more dignity, no pride,
And there will only be dark in her light of day.
And she will only see a reflection
Of her father's rejection.
Nothing will change until she breaks this life...
This life size mirror!
