lyrics

Stop looking at your face in the mirror.
You're not your reflection.
You're not your reflection.
You're not your reflection.
You're not your reflection.
You say it time and time again.
Your calendar it calls you ten.
It passes by ten times again.

What will you do with your body?
What will you do with your time?
What will you do with those stories you tell
to your grandmother's ashes at night?

Friday night blues you got me down on my knees.
You got me staring at mirrors.
You got me crying out, please,
why can't my addled body just do what it pleases?
You got me crying out, Jesus,
yeah you are such a tease.

I write these songs as a letter to my ungrateful soul.
It's not ready for salvation
in any sense of the word.
I write these words as a memory to a fading life,
not an image for creation,
though I never can be sure.
I want to know.
I want to know.
I want to believe your reflection is all that you are.
