Mirrors

A mirror is a negative space with a frame
And a place for your face it reveals
What the rest of us see
It conceals
What you’d like it to be

Pretty girls can’t look away
Pretty girls can’t look away
Pretty girls can’t look away
Pretty girls can’t look away

Pretty girls have a love affair
With their eyes and their shining hair
Fantasize that the world adores
Tantalize like a cover girl

Mirrors are the basis of beauty give rise
To self-love or self-pity the prize
If a woman is pretty she tries
Like a superstar Hollywood girl

Pretty girls can’t look away
Pretty girls can’t look away
Pretty girls can’t look away
Pretty girls can’t look away

Pretty girls can’t look away Vanity’s a deadly sin
Pretty girls can’t look away It’s what the flesh is packaged in
Pretty girls can’t look away Vanity’s a deadly sin
Pretty girls can’t look away It’s what the flesh is packaged in

Pretty girls have a love affair
With their eyes and their shining hair
Fantasize that the world adores
Tantalize like a cover girl

Mirrors are a negative space with a frame
And a place for your face they reveal
What the rest of us see
They conceal
What you’d like it to be

Pretty girls can’t look away
Pretty girls can’t look away Oh yeah
Pretty girls can’t look away Vanity’s a deadly sin
Pretty girls can’t look away It’s what the flesh is packaged in

Pretty girls can’t look away
Pretty girls can’t look away
Pretty girls can’t look away
Pretty girls can’t look away

Pretty girls can’t look away
Pretty girls can’t look away
Pretty girls can’t look away
Pretty girls can’t look away
