Broken Mirror

I thought I’d won your heart before
Not knowing what I’d lose
I won the battles, lost the war
What did I try to prove?
I tried to cultivate our love
The soil was cold and hard
I know you loved me well enough
How did I break your heart?

They say a broken mirror
Can bring seven years’ bad luck
I’d wait seven hundred more years
If you would fall in love
With me again

There was a sweet November morn
When you lay next to me
And I could never want for more
I’d found my destiny
Yet now you seem so far away
Even in the same bed
I’m pouring out my heart today
But you won’t notice it

They say a broken mirror
Can bring seven years’ bad luck
I’d wait seven hundred more years
If you would fall in love
With me again

Shattered pieces of ourselves
That we don’t want to see
That perfect picture on the shelf
A happy family
But if you had it your way
I believe you’d want to go
It hurts in ways I cannot say
That you won’t tell me so
It’s like we live in different worlds
But our vows haven’t changed
The edges of it cut me now
Though I don’t feel the pain

They say a broken mirror
Can bring seven years’ bad luck
I’d wait seven hundred more years
If you would fall in love
With me again
