Girl In The Mirror

There's a girl in the mirror
She's always staring back
Her arms are stained red
And her eyes are painted black.

In her hand she holds a blade
In the other she holds a key
It is a key to my chains
This girl has got a hold on me.

Sometimes I borrow her blade
For all the pain; I bleed
The metal cutting into my skin
I find sometimes it's all I need.

Every time I close my eyes
That girl is all I see
She's everything I dream about
That girl who I'd hate to be.

The darkness surrounds her
Her eyes just look so sad
I bleed sorrow for her beauty
And the life she never had.

Last night I saw her bleeding
She was begging her wrists for more
Drowning in her blood bath
The mirror smashed on the floor.

She stares at me through the pieces
Hoping each breath is not her last
I shake my head and look away
Blocking out the flashbacks of my past.
