a song

My Mirror Speaks
by Death Cab for Cutie

With every sun that sets I am feeling more like a stranger on a foreign shore
With an eroding beach disappearing from under me
And when my mirror speaks it never minces words cause these eyes don't shine half as bright
As they used to do and the haven't for quite a while

Cause I'm a man who hides from all that binds in mass of fading lines
And there's a tangled thread inside my head with nothing on either end

I always fall in love with an open door
The horizon on an endless sea
As I look around the ones who were standing right in front of me
And then my mirror speaks with a reverence like a soldier who I can't command
Sees a frightened child in the body of full grown man

And he's a man who hides from all that binds in mass of fading lines
And there's a tangled thread inside his head with nothing on either end
There's nothing on the end
