  • I want you to know
    I'm a mirrorball
    I'll show you every version of yourself tonight
    I'll get you out on the floor
    Shimmering beautiful
    And when I break it's in a million pieces

    Hush
    When no one is around, my dear
    You'll find me on my tallest tiptoes
    Spinning in my highest heels, love
    Shining just for you
    Hush
    I know they said the end is near
    But I'm still on my tallest tiptoes
    Spinning in my highest heels, love
    Shining just for you

    I want you to know
    I'm a mirrorball
    I can change everything about me to fit in
    You are not like the regulars
    The masquerade revelers
    Drunk as they watch my shattered edges glisten

    Hush
    When no one is around, my dear
    You'll find me on my tallest tiptoes
    Spinning in my highest heels, love
    Shining just for you
    Hush
    I know they said the end is near
    But I'm still on my tallest tiptoes
    Spinning in my highest heels, love
    Shining just for you

    And they called off the circus
    Burned the disco down
    When they sent home the horses
    And the rodeo clowns
    I'm still on that tightrope
    I'm still trying everything to get you laughing at me
    I'm still a believer but I don't know why
    I've never been a natural
    All I do is try, try, try
    I'm still on that trapeze
    I'm still trying everything
    To keep you looking at me

    Because I'm a mirrorball
    I'm a mirrorball
    I'll show you every version of yourself
