reflection lyrics – jim brickman

“reflection”

look at me you may think you see
who i really am but you’ll never know me
every day it’s as if i play a part
now i see if i wear a mask
i can fool the world but i cannot fool my heart

who is that girl i see staring straight back at me?
when will my reflection show who i am inside?

i am now in a world where i
have to hide my heart and what i believe in
but somehow i will show the world
what’s inside my heart and be loved for who i am

who is that girl i see staring straight back at me?
why is my reflection someone i don’t know?

must i pretend that i’m someone else for all time?
when will my reflection show who i am inside?

there’s a heart that must be free to fly
that burns with a need to know the reason why

why must we all conceal what we think and how we feel?
must there be a secret me i’m forced to hide?
i won’t pretend that i’m someone else for all time
when will my reflection show who i am inside?
when will my reflection show who i am inside?
