When you look at yourself in the mirror

When you look at yourself in the mirror…
Tell me, love, what do you see?
Darkness as bright as a black hole shines!
Come closer sweetie, I will shine for thee!

You cry of despair for you lover’s sake,
The one that took off and left you behind!
Those bridges he built were all over fake…
Whence could so much cruelty lie?

Those bridges were nothing but places to die,
Their paths tumultuous, unclear and uneven:
You fell over and over with no place to stay…
Come closer, sweetie, I will take you to heaven!

Will fly freely above the land I’m building
The bird that rests in thy heart, a dove:
Your bridges will be secure here
We will construct them with our love.

Once you look at yourself in the mirror…
Tell me, love, what do you see?
My heart is open and happy and fancy!
Come closer sweetie, I’m still shinning for thee.
