The Woman In the Mirror

I look into the morror at this woman Who's drowned in tears for freedom Freedom from inner pain That has seized her with chains Seized her for too many years And now she wants to disappear I dry her tears and comfort her Telling everything will be better Everything will soon change All she needs is some courage Courage to face and stand 'Cause change lies in her hands She wants to fly away Make a new life there and stay Where she can get rid of her pain and anger Where she can be happy forever But she thinks she won't be able to make it 'Cause pain is forbidding her to stand on her feet She wants to live no more 'Cause nothing is left to live for If she can't be happy then why to live In life she no more believes She knows nothing is going to be alright And to die she has made up her mind But i hold her back and ask for patience And that soon she will see the difference Though i know she's right and i'm wrong All i'm trying is to make her strong But the truth i just can't ignore Got to let it go, can't fool myself no more
