The Looking Glass

By Bruce Clifford

Can't you tell I'm a bit jaded
If all was well that memory has faded
You didn't give me a second chance
You didn't give me another glance
Can't you tell this is bringing me down

Can't you see I'm empty and lonely
What was meant to be is now far away
You didn't care about my fragile state
Now I'm afraid I know my fate
It wouldn't take much to turn this around

Why can't you give me the time of day
Why can't you forget about yesterday
Why can't you remember what we once had
Why can't you see through the looking glass

Can't you tell I'm a bit lost
If all was well there wouldn't be a cost
You didn't give it another thought
You didn't care about my broken heart
Can't you see there is so much more to me

Why can't you give me the time of day
Why can't you forget about yesterday
Why can't you remember what we once had
Why can't you see through the looking glass

Why can't you see all the good in me
Why can't you remember how things used to be
Why can't you open your heart to me
Why can't you see what I can see
The looking glass
