I've Looked in the Mirror

I looked in the mirror

I looked in the mirror

And I wonder who I am

Since you left this world

I've been looking in the mirror

Why does life treat me so bad

Why does life give me harm

I work and work all day long

And nothing seems to pay

I looked in the mirror

I looked in the mirror

And I wonder who I am

Since you left this world

I've been looking in the mirror

Life can't be over

Life can't be so simple

There is something more

That I have to discover

I looked in the mirror

I looked in the mirror

And I wonder who I am

Since you left this world

I've been looking in the mirror

If I could see my loved one

again if I could hear them laugh

if I could hear them sing

it would put my mind to ease

I looked in the mirror

I looked in the mirror

And I wonder who I am

Since you left this world

I've been looking in the mirror

It's not fair I say over and over

again because I can't seem to get over

the pain deep inside that compels

me to be filled with grief

I looked in the mirror

I looked in the mirror

And I wonder who I am

Since you left this world

I've been looking in the mirror

Somehow I will get through

The love down the years will

pull me through and sunshine

will awaken me to new mood.
