LYRICS:
YOUR REFLECTION IN THE MIRROR
WILL STILL BE HERE WHEN I’M GONE.
YOU WILL SEE ME IN THE MIRROR
WHEN YOU LAUGH, OR STRETCH, OR YAWN.
WILL YOU HAVE THE SAME EXPRESSIONS?
WILL YOU CRINKLE UP YOUR NOSE
WHEN YOU SMELL VIDALIA ONIONS?
I MAY NEVER KNOW,
I SUPPOSE.

YOU COULD BE A WHIZ AT ENGLISH.
BUT I BET YOU’LL SUCK AT MATH.
I WAS ALWAYS QUITE THE TOMBOY.
LOVE THE MUD FIGHT; HATE THE BATH.
HOW MUCH OF ME CARRIES OVER?
IS IT BLOOD AND BONES AND HAIR?
OR ARE YOU BECOMING LIKE ME?
YOU MAY NEVER KNOW
IF I’M NOT THERE.

I DON’T WANT TO BE MORBID.
NO ONE KNOWS HOW THINGS LIKE THIS PLAY OUT.
I MAY WELL PLAN YOUR WEDDING.
GIVE YOU YEARS OF ANNOYANCES AND DOUBT.
AND IF YOU HAVE A BABY,
MAYBE I’LL BE THERE TO SAY HELLO.
YOU NEVER KNOW.

BUT IF SOMEHOW THIS THING GETS ME
AND YOU NEVER KNOW YOUR MOM,
TRUST THAT I AM RIGHT BESIDE YOU.
I WOULD NEVER MISS YOUR PROM.
YOU WILL SEE ME IN THE MIRROR.
YOU WILL HEAR ME IN THE AIR.
THIS IS ME! THIS IS ETERNAL.
YOU WILL FIND ME EVERYWHERE.
EVERYWHERE YOU SEE YOURSELF:
THAT’S EXACTLY WHERE I’M GOING TO BE.
THAT YOU’LL ALWAYS KNOW.
PROMISE ME.
