mirror lyrics – mary j. blige

i used to give you too much power
trust me, them days is over
can’t understand it how i
let you sit on my shoulders
them times when you messed up
i made escuses for
and i always knew it, that i should have headed for the door
but i stayed and you played the right way in your place
and i prayed everytime you was away you’d see my face
but the me was you, and your
pain was mine, and the
same situation playing over in my mind
it seems

ain’t tryna hear you
just tryna hear me
don’t wanna hear nothing, living selfishly
i blaming you for the hurt in me, but it’s not your fault that
i’m so incomplete

you see everytime i do it do it
i seem to ruin
got this funny way of falling in love
and its effecting how i’m breathing
effecting how i’m eating
seems like i’m all up on drugs
so beg you my pardon
loving you been the hardest
and i can’t take no more
i’m looking for the problem
standing over the sink
one day i found it, i had to take a look in mirror,(mirror) take a look in the mirror,(mirror) take a look in the mirror,(mirror) a
see i can’t leave you, until i learn to leave me,(a), me,(oh), me,(a), me,(oh), me,(a), me, oh, me,(a), me,(oh) leave me …

what was i thinking
letting you talk to me like that
you was holding me down, but i was holding me back
looking inside myself, and hurts to see who i am, cause this is my trial, affecting my smile
i gotta walk out, it’s gonna be a while

you see everytime i do it do it
i seem to ruin
got this funny way of falling in love
and it’s effecting how im breathing
effecting how im eating
seems like i’m all up on drugs
so beg you my pardon
loving you been the hardest
and i can’t take no more
i’m looking for the problem
standing over sink
one day i found it, i had to take a look in mirror,(mirror) take a look in the mirror,(mirror) take a look in the mirror,(mirror) a
see i can’t leave you, until i learn to leave me,(a), me,(oh), me,(a), me,(oh), me,(a), me,(oh), me,(a), me,(oh) leave me …

everything i thought i knew,
all them times i ran away,
it seems really i was running from me (running from me)
i know constantly we tried, we was living in a lie
finally looked into mirror to see (mirror to see)
probably would have left you sooner, but i was being scared, and that ain’t how i ever should be (ever should be)
yeah i was searching for a while for the source of the problem
one day i found it, i had to take a look in the mirror
