​The Mirror

This song is by Beau and appears on the compilation album Edge Of The Dark: Unreleased Recordings 1972 - 1985 (2009).

The mirror never lies throughout your youth,
Though perhaps it might exaggerate the truth.
The mirror never jokes about the news
When asked about the face that it reviews.
But if it shows up signs it traces in the lines
What more are you entitled to?
If you are wise there will be no surprise.
When you are young, the mirror never lies.

The mirror never cheats, it guarantees;
Rejecting all responsibilities.
The mirror never twists and never bends.
It shows you almost all that it intends.
And sometimes, it is hard; it takes you off your guard.
You can't select what to reject.
The sick defeats and sad retreats
And guarantees that the mirror never cheats.

The mirror never hates or is unfair;
It freezes for you only what is there.
The mirror never smiles to ease your mind.
It never knew the meaning of unkind.
And sometimes in the night, stood blinking in the light,
You are shown something unknown.
Whatever waits, it all relates
And it's unfair that the mirror never hates.

Whatever waits, it all relates
And it's unfair that the mirror never hates.
