THE MIRROR

THE MIRROR
I see my image is cast upon the wall
I see the mirror but I don’t know what it’s for
Reflected in a moment I can see all I am
Passing on the light well I’m doing what I can

Now I’m gonna fly high
I’m gonna fly high

Waves crest and crash in the rhythm of my waking
Moving through the past I can feel foundations shaking
Reflected on the screen I can see what might have been
In others who before who had the strength to dream

Now I’m gonna fly high
I’m gonna fly high

We want to say we love you
We want to say it so
We want to say we can feel you
But the words they will not flow
We want to say we love you
We want to say it so
We want to say we believe in you
But the words they will not flow
The words they will not
The words they will not
The words they will not flow

I can see the people move through the tides and the times
From the past to future they will sing the same old rhymes
Displayed before our eyes we can see eternal plays
Merging into one as time begins to say

Now I’m gonna fly high
I’m gonna fly high

Facts:

  • To play this song on guitar, it should be tuned DADGBE.
  • One time George performed this song at a friend’s 21st birthday celebration to a large hall of relatives and friends. During the performance he had a moment of mispronunciation and sang “From the past to pilchard they will sing the same old rhymes” which caused much hilarity among the backing singers, although the error went largely unnoticed by the relatives.
  • During a Flicker rehearsal that took place in Ottery St Mary in 2002, this song was played at high volume to invoke any astral imps that may have lurked there for the previous 20 years. None manifested themselves.
