  • The looking glass so shiny and new
    How quickly the glamor fades
    I start spinning slipping out of time
    Was that the wrong pill to take (raise it up)
    You made a deal and now it seems you have to offer up
    But will it ever be enough
    (raise it up raise it up)
    It's not enough
    (raise it up raise it up)

    Here I am a rabbit hearted girl
    Frozen in the headlights
    It seems I've made the final sacrifice

    We raise it up this offering
    We raise it up

    This is a gift it comes with a price
    Who is the lamb and who is the knife
    Midas is king and he holds me so tight
    And turns me to gold in the sunlight

    I look around but I can't find you
    (raise it up)
    If only I could see your face
    (raise it up)
    Instead of rushing towards the skyline
    (raise it up)
    I wish that I could just be brave

    I must become a lion hearted girl
    Ready for a fight
    Before I make the final sacrifice

    We raise it up this offering
    We raise it up

    This is a gift it comes with a price
    Who is the lamb and who is the knife
    Midas is king and he holds me so tight
    And turns me to gold in the sunlight

    Raise it up raise it up
    Raise it up raise it up

    And in the spring I shed my skin
    And it blows away with the changing wind
    The waters turn from blue to red
    As towards the sky I offer it

    This is a gift it comes with a price
    Who is the lamb and who is the knife
    Midas is king and he holds me so tight
    And turns me to gold in the sunlight

    This is a gift it comes with a price
    Who is the lamb and who is the knife
    Midas is king and he holds me so tight
    And turns me to gold in the sunlight

    This is a gift Writer/s: CORMAC NEESON, JAMES HEATLEY, MICHAEL WATERS, PAUL MAHON
