  • Uh, with everything happening today
    You don't know whether you're coming or going
    But you think that you're on your way
    Life lined up on the mirror don't blow it (woo)

    Look at me when I'm talkin' to you
    You lookin' at me but I'm lookin' through you
    I see the blood in your eyes
    I see the love in disguise
    I see the pain hidden in your pride
    I see you're not satisfied
    And I don't see nobody else
    I see myself, I'm looking at the

    Mirror on the wall (woo), here we are again (yeah)
    Through my rise and fall (uh)
    You've been my only friend (yeah)
    You told me that they can understand the man I am
    So why are we here talkin' to each other again?

    Uh, I see the truth in your lies
    I see nobody by your side
    But I'm with you when you're all alone
    And you correct me when I'm lookin' wrong
    I see the guilt beneath the shame
    I see your soul through your window pain
    I see the scars that remain
    I see you Wayne, I'm lookin' at the

    Mirror on the wall, here we are again (yeah)
    Through my rise and fall (uh-huh)
    You've been my only friend (my only friend)
    You told me that they can understand the man I am (they can understand)
    So why are we here talkin' to each other again (misunderstood)

    Lookin' at me now I can see my past
    Damn I look just like my fuckin' dad
    Light it up, that's smoke at mirrors
    I even look good in the broken mirror
    I see my momma smile that's a blessin'
    I see the change, I see the message
    And no message could been any clearer
    So I'm starting with the man in the

    Mirror on the wall (MJ taught me that)
    Here we are again
    Through my rise and fall
    You've been my only friend (take them to mars man)
    You told me that they can understand the man I am
    So why are we here talkin' to each other again
    Uh

    Mirror on the wall, here we are again
    Through my rise and fall
    You've been my only friend
    You told me that they can understand the man I am
    So why are we here talkin' to each other again
    Mirror on the wall
    Ayy BP, looks like I did take 'em to mars this time

    So why are we talkin' to each other again? Writer/s: Dwayne Carter, Peter Gene Hernandez, Philip Martin II Lawrence, Ramon Owen
