One-Sided Mirror

I'm staring at you through tinted glass
you can't see me through this glass

on your side all you see is you
ironically, it's all my side sees too

i watch as you turn to the mirror beside
re-apply makeup, true nature you hide

you are someone you weren't meant to be
I can see you but you can't see me

you look into my eyes but see your own
all I want is to bring you home
