Outsider Looking In

Standing in the bathroom
Looking at myself in the mirror
Tears ready to bloom
Getting nearer and nearer

I ask my reflection if you’ll ever betray me
Everyone else has before
In your eyes I see no guarantee
Acting vain I stare at myself some more

To see if I can trust you I move to the right
You don’t move with
I jump back with fright
Believing you would always be there for me was a myth

I stare enviously at you brushing your hair
I was trapped
Every second watching you my heart fills with even more despair
I’d never be able to adapt

It’s here trapped inside the mirror in which I stay
My head starts to spin
I wish to be you everyday
Because I’ll always be just the outsider looking in
