She was done before the start, always mending broken hearts
Making others miserable not knowing who she's hurting
Father said, "This day would be, one for everyone to see"
Is it true you'll follow suit and have you learned a thing?
It's just a selfish way to go, it's safe to say she'll never know
For every person there's a whole life story waiting to be told
When she is happy it's OK, but when these people start to fade
Then we'll just watch her self-destruct as she gets old
She put up defensive shields, to walk through all of life's minefields
All defined by make-up and a car behind she's hiding
"Father do you have to go, left me questions I don't know"
Any answer or even close the life time lie was true
She's gonna move on with her life, and take it one heart at a time
And watch the little girl inside her wait behind as she moves on
But with this black heart she decides, who she'll take in and shove aside
Until the day she sees that everyone is gone
Getting used to people leaving, thinking true love is deceiving
Soon she'll know how lonely it can be
Now was it really worth the pain? A couple pills make her feel sane
While she lives out the story written for the part she is to play
With so much shame for her to hide, there's no more dignity, no pride
Then there will only be dark in her light of day
And she will only see a reflection, of her father's rejection
Nothing will change until she breaks this life, this life-size mirror
