LYRICS

[Verse 1]

Porcelain skin with angel kissed cheeks

her hair sparkled flashes of gold

she held the world in the palm of her hand

yet her eyes were deceiving and cold

Fake were her words her breath not so sweet

a sirens song to all her fools

no one could be as stunning as she

her envy was poison and cruel

[Chorus]

mirror mirror on the wall

why must beauty rule them all

why can’t they see, it don’t matter skin deep

mirror mirror tell me

[Verse 2]

its not her fault that she thinks this way

she’s lived in a world that was fake

try and she might, she wasn’t able to fight

the standards and the constant hate

broken and scarred, nothing left to break

she’s left with a singular path

cast out the pain but no love will remain

no remnants of what she once was

[Chorus]

mirror mirror on the wall

why must beauty rule them all

why can’t they see, it don’t matter skin deep

mirror mirror tell me

[Bridge]

once lived a girl who cared not of looks

but only the things that she loved

time healed no wounds, she was battered and bruised

who can blame her for having enough [Coda]

mirror mirror on the wall

why must beauty rule them all

why can’t they see, it don’t matter skin deep

mirror mirror tell me

mirror mirror tell me

mirror mirror tell me
