  • Aren't you something to admire, 'cause your shine is something 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'm here trying to pull you through
    You just gotta be strong

    'Cause I don't wanna lose you now
    I'm looking right at the other half of me
    The vacancy that sat in my heart
    Is a space that now you hold
    Show me how to fight for now
    And I'll tell you, baby, it was easy
    Coming 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 something, an original, 'cause it doesn't seem merely assembled
    And I can't help but stare 'cause I see truth somewhere in your eyes
    Ooh 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'm here trying to pull you through
    You just gotta be strong

    'Cause I don't wanna lose you now
    I'm looking right at the other half of me
    The vacancy that sat in my heart
    Is a space that now you hold
    Show me how to fight for now
    And I'll tell you, baby, it was easy
    Coming 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 looking back at me
    Keep your eyes on me
    Baby, keep your eyes on me

    I don't wanna lose you now
    I'm looking right at the other half of me
    The vacancy that sat in my heart
    Is a space that now you hold
    Show me how to fight for now
    And I'll tell you, baby, it was easy
    Coming 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 Writer/s: Chris Godbey, Garland Waverly Mosley, James Edward Fauntleroy, Jerome Harmon, Justin Timberlake, Timothy Mosley
