Mirror, Mirror

I was never one 
to believe in fairy tales
I never fell for 
happily ever after
I could never be 
prince charming.
the princess never 
awoke to my kiss

As time went on, 
I felt like the troll 
under the bridge;
convinced myself I was 
the big bad wolf 
at the door

Life made me the hunchback,
made me as outcast as that  
Phantom of the opera

then she came along, 
and tempted me, 
sang for me,
pulled off the mask,
made me see 
something else in the mirror

Life has turned my heart to stone
betrayal has shoved
a sword through my heart, 
is she the one 
to pull it out?

I was never the knight 
clad in shining armor
did not always do what was right

I was lost as the hero 
in the white hat
riding off into the sunset;
too busy chasing windmills 
in the distance

happier to embrace the night
I could hide the tears
disguise the fears

then she came along
made me see something worthy
in the mirror

life had turned my heart to stone
Betrayal has pierced my heart 
with a sword
is she the one 
to pull it out?

so mirror, mirror
is she the one for me?
