the one in the glass lyrics – joey tempest

when you get what you want in the struggle for you
and the world makes you king for a day
just go to the mirror and look at yourself
see what that person has to say

now some people call you a straight shooting man
they think you´re a wonderful guy
but the one in the gl*ss says you´re only a fool
if you won´t look him straight in the eye

for it isn´t your lover, your father or mother
whose judgement upon you must p*ss
no, the verdict that counts the most in your life
is the one staring back from the gl*ss

now the one you should please never mind all the rest
who is with you clear to the end
and you´ve p*ssed the most dangerous difficult test
if the one in the gl*ss can be your friend

you can fool the whole world down the pathways of years
get a pat on the back as you p*ss
but your final reward will be heartaches and tears
if you cheat on the one in the gl*ss

for it isn´t your lover, your father or mother
whose judgement upon you must p*ss
no, the verdict that counts most in your life
is the one staring back from the gl*ss
