Justin Timberlake – Mirrors

Posted by on October 27, 2013 at 6:40 pm.

It’s been a busy few weeks and I’m drop dead exhausted, but… it’s much too early to sleep.

I just returned from my class and now it’s time to hang out with my daughter. I’m looking forward to doing a bit of sewing for her; Halloween costume and her Christmas outfit. 😉

You know… I hope she remembers this time, the sacrifices made and “pays it forward” in her own life as she gets older. Actually, I see bits of her doing that now, with the things she does, and it thrills my soul…

I really like this song, by Justin Timberlake. It’s been playing through my brain all day… Occasionally, I find mirror images of myself (in others) with the various traits I have. It’s always nice when the positive is reflected in other individuals that are similar to myself. The negatives? Well, that always makes me strive to make improvements.

Recently, I’ve been thinking about a acquaintance, that shares my passion for youth outreach ministries. I love children and over the years have done a lot with youth so it’s nice to connect with someone that gets that. In that aspect, they are my reflection. They totally get my passion, where some others (at times) don’t understand…

It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making two reflections into one
‘Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

In that part of our lives, volunteering, we’re mirror images of each other. Not so in other aspects, so no the full song does NOT apply… at least not with us! So my friends that know the both of us, don’t even go there! No romance here, access denied!

In other aspects of our lives, such as various religious beliefs, political views etc., we are miles apart… A pity, but it is what it is… But we can respect and collaborate on something that is a common interest… at risk youth. On other topics, we just agree to disagree without being insulting. It makes you wonder why others can’t be the same way, you know? The world would be a much more positive place, if it was that way.

 

Justin Timberlake: Mirrors

Aren’t you somethin’ to admire?
‘Cause your shine is somethin’ like a mirror
And I can’t help but notice
You reflect in this heart of mine
If you ever feel alone and
The glare makes me hard to find
Just know that I’m always
Parallel on the other side

‘Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul
I can tell you there’s no place we couldn’t go
Just put your hand on the glass
I’ll be tryin’ to pull you through
You just gotta be strong

‘Cause I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m lookin’ right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space and now you’re home
Show me how to fight for now
And I’ll tell you, baby, it was easy
Comin’ back into you once I figured it out
You were right here all along

It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making two reflections into one
‘Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

Aren’t you somethin’, an original
‘Cause it doesn’t seem merely a sample
And I can’t help but stare, ’cause
I see truth somewhere in your eyes
I can’t ever change without you
You reflect me, I love that about you
And if I could, I would look at us all the time

‘Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul
I can tell you there’s no place we couldn’t go
Just put your hand on the glass
I’ll be tryin’ to pull you through
You just gotta be strong

‘Cause I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m lookin’ right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space and now you’re home
show me how to fight for now
And I’ll tell you, baby, it was easy
Comin’ back into you once I figured it out
You were right here all along

It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making two reflections into one
‘Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

Yesterday is history
Tomorrow’s a mystery
I can see you lookin’ back at me
Keep your eyes on me
Baby, keep your eyes on me

‘Cause I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m lookin’ right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space and now you’re home
Show me how to fight for now (please show me, baby)
I’ll tell you, baby, it was easy
Comin’ back into you once I figured it out
You were right here all along

It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making two reflections into one
‘Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

You are, you are the love of my life [x10]

Now you’re the inspiration for this precious song
And I just wanna see your face light up since you put me on
So now I say goodbye to the old me, it’s already gone
And I can’t wait wait wait wait wait to get you home
Just to let you know, you are

You are, you are the love of my life [x8]

Girl you’re my reflection, all I see is you
My reflection, in everything I do
You’re my reflection and all I see is you
My reflection, in everything I do

You are, you are the love of my life [x16]
