VERSE 1
I am a broken mirror
On the floor there’s broken glass
My mirror used to reflect my love
Now it only reflects my shattered past

When you asked me to be your girl
My heart was filled with joy
But back then I was a younger girl
And he a younger boy

CHORUS
But something arose
In a life that you knew not of
Then I was forced to say the dreaded words
I never thought of
But the love burned on

VERSE 2
Life and love and happiness
That’s all I ever sought
Then sickness befell a relative
And pain is all it brought

The ghost of that love
Oh how now it haunts me
Now it’s rebounded off the walls
Now it’s back to taunt me

CHORUS
But something arose
In a life that you knew not of
Then I was forced to say the dreaded words
I never thought of
But the love burned on

BRIDGE
Hurt and pain
And grief and strain
And Silent crying,
Emotion fighting
Self-inflicting
Heart constricting
It’s un-heard of
Can’t get a hold of
You

CHORUS
But something arose
In a life that you knew not of
Then I was forced to say the dreaded words
I never thought of
But the love burned on

This song is about when I dated this really sweet guy but then something happened to my family and I had to break up with him because my family comes first.
