(Verse 1)
Mama don't forget, I'm not the girl you were,
Don't you mistake me, I'll never be her.
We are alike, but you can't compare,
Fearing I will make your mistakes is unfair.
The blue eyes, the blonde hair,
Free spirit without a care.
Reckless, daring, rebel, wild,
Misguided, sad, and angry child.
Girl who grew up much too fast,
Adolescence didn't last.
Traded lollipops for cigarettes,
Living life with harsh regrets.
(Chorus)
Mirror, mirror on the wall,
I'm not you, not at all.
In life's game you win or lose,
And I'll win it walking in my own shoes.
You brought me here and made me strong,
And with that strength I'll move along.
(Verse 2)
Taking care of family as a kid,
Raised your sisters more than mother did.
Gambling your future with every move you made,
As you watched and helped your childhood fade.
That girl is not me, not all all,
For I have yet to take a fall.
Always thinking before I act,
Only trusting what is a fact.
No need to get involved with drugs,
Or hang around with troubled thugs.
A stable family, easy living,
Thanks to all the love you've given.
(Chorus)
Mirror, mirror on the wall,
I'm not you, not at all.
In life's game you win or lose,
And I'll win it walking in my own shoes.
You brought me here and made me strong,
And with that strength I'll move along.
(Verse 3)
You have made my life so great,
And helped me keep my head on straight.
You're scared I'll take the path you took,
But here's a mirror, take a look.
We are alike, but not the same,
I promise to never bring you shame.
(Chorus)
Mirror, mirror on the wall,
I'm not you, not at all.
In life's game you win or lose,
And I'll win it walking in my own shoes.
You brought me here and made me strong,
And with that strength I'll move along.
