Honey, This Mirror Isn't Big Enough For The Two Of Us

Album: I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love (2002)
  • The amount of pills I'm taking counteracts the booze I'm drinking
    And this vanity I'm breaking, lets me live my life like this
    And well I find it hard to stay, with the words you say
    Oh baby let me in
    Well I'll choose the life I've taken, never mind the friends I'm making
    And the beauty that I'm faking lets me live my life like this
    And well I find it hard to stay, with the words you say
    Oh baby let me in
    And you can cry all you want to, I don't care how much

    You'll invest yourself in me, we're not working out
    And you can't touch my brother and you can't keep my friends
    And we're not working out, we're not working out
    This time I mean it, never mind the times I've seen it

    Well I hope I'm not mistaken by the news I heard from waking
    And it's hard to say I'm shaken, by the choices that I make
    And well I find it hard to stay, with the words you say
    Oh baby let me in
    Well I'll choose this life I've taken, never mind the friends I'm making
    And I get a little shaken, because I live my life like this
    And well I find it hard to stay, with the words you say
    Oh baby let me in
    And you can cry all you want to, I don't care how much

    You'll invest yourself in me, we're not working out
    And you can't keep my brother, and you won't fuck my friends
    And we're not working out, we're not working out
    This time I mean it, never mind the times I've seen it

    Never again, never again
    Oh baby let me in, I'm knocking let me in Writer/s: FRANK IERO, MATTHEW PELLISIER, RAY TORO, GERARD WAY, MICHAEL WAY

  • Ratt IerottrillwalignePersonally i don't like the meaning of this song and that stuff. Because we all know all the problems with drugs and alcohol that gerard had on that period. That was tough. But also, i wanna think, that the same words that gerard said, were because of the drugs and alcohol too. It's not a good way of express.
  • Rae from Buxton, NcGreat song. I was shocked to find out it was one of their first! That just shows they are meant to do this and have incredible talent.
  • John from Sylvania, Oh@George:
    The music video is based off of the audition.
  • George from Placeville, WiThis song reminds me of the movie "Audition"
  • Georgi from Londonwhat is sharpest lives about?
  • Ali from Oxford, PaYep, I agree with Samantha, the song is about just choosing the drugs and loosing the girl. And Eliza Cuts isn't a model, she's a hairdresser, Audie...
  • Robyn from Granbury, TxThis song is about Gerard himself. He had a very controlling girlfriend that wanted him to stop doing drugs and when they broke up she went after his brothers and friends. He has said at shows as mentioned before here that "This song is about a big fat whore!" What a way with words that man has.
  • Linn from Port Douglas, AustraliaGerard is now Married to *drumrole*loosens collar* Lyn-Z of Mindless Self Indulgence!
  • Astrozombie from Chchhe's getting maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarried! sorry completely irrelevant but how cute!
  • Audie from Auckland, New ZealandI read on ImNotOkay.net that this song is actually about the guy heavily into drugs (like Gerard when he was depressed in high school) and the girlfriend is sick of it and tells him (Gerard) to stop. The guy is unhappy of his controlling girlfriend, and is basically telling her to get lost. Hmm...maybe this is why Gerard broke up with his girlfriend, Katmandu? He's got a new girlfriend, she's a model - Eliza Cuts.
  • Cassie from Somewhere, NcLMAO. a big fat whore. That's funny. Gerard-gotta love him!
  • Samantha from Nowheresville, WaI heard this song was about a guy who is heavily into drugs (specifically cocaine), and his girlfriend is trying to get him to stop, so he's basically telling her to f*ck off. As everyone knows, mirrors are associated with coke, so the basic meaning of the song is, he's choosing the drugs over his girlfriend (hence the title, "Honey, This Mirror Isn't Big Enough For The Two Of Us"). He's also telling his girlfriend that she can't have his friends, or his brother. Gerard Way has said at some of MCR's earlier concerts that "this song is about a big fat whore." His words, not mine.
