Reflection

Album: Mulan soundtrack (1998)
  • Look at me
    You may think you see
    Who I really am
    But you'll never know me
    Every day
    It's as if I play a part
    Now I see
    If I wear a mask
    I can fool the world
    But I cannot fool my heart

    Who is that girl I see
    Staring straight back at me?
    When will my reflection show
    Who I am inside?

    I am now
    In a world where I
    Have to hide my heart
    And what I believe in
    But somehow
    I will show the world
    What's inside my heart
    And be loved for who I am

    Who is that girl I see
    Staring straight back at me?
    Why is my reflection
    Someone I don't know?
    Must I pretend that I'm
    Someone else for all time?
    When will my reflection show
    Who I am inside?

    There's a heart that must be
    Free to fly
    That burns with a need to know
    The reason why

    Why must we all conceal
    What we think, how we feel?
    Must there be a secret me
    I'm forced to hide?
    I won't pretend that I'm
    Someone else for all time
    When will my reflection show
    Who I am inside?
    When will my reflection show
    Who I am inside? Writer/s: David Zippel, Matthew Wilder
