The Man in the Mirror

The Man in the Mirror

The man in the mirror
Who’s looking at you
He’s wanting to change
To start life anew

Once life was easy
He learned and he played
He went off to college
His ticket was paid

Somehow or another
Things went so wrong
Never meant it to happen
But he knew all along

The things that you do
The things that you say
Can push the people
You love far away

He just can’t keep going
This way anymore
Mistakes that he’s made
Have become such a bore

The man in the mirror
Grown tired and weary
Of a life with no hope
Eternally dreary

Just give him a chance
To be whom he should
The treasure you’ll find
The part that is good

He could have the world
If he would change his life
He could have a great job
A family, a wife

It’s up to him now
To figure it out
Do what he must
To turn it about

The life that he chooses
The choices he makes
Don’t have to feel
Like big mistakes

I know that you see him
The reflection of you
He’s wanting to know
What you want him to do
