"Mirrorball" as written by Ben Watt and Tracey Thorn....
You never knew the teenage me and
You wouldn't believe the things you didn't see,
Some pretty, some ugly.
And the lovely mirrorball reflected back them all
Every triumph, every fight, under disco light.

Come on girl, it's alright.
Come on girl, it's alright now.
Come on girl, it's gonna be alright now.

Well I guess some boys adored me
But the one I loved ignored me,
And caused me in the end to murder my best friend.

And though I got her letter, it never did get better,
And I got out of my head.
Then I joined a band instead.

Come on girl, it's alright.
Come on girl, it's alright now.
Come on girl, it's gonna be alright now.

Some good times I remember - my birthday that September,
We lay down on the lawn,
And counted until dawn,
The stars that we lay under.
And is he still, I wonder, the fairest of them all, mirror,

Come on girl, it's too late.
Come on girl, it's too late now.
Come on girl, let it all go.
Come on girl, it's too late now.

Come on girl, it's gonna be alright.
Come on girl, it's never gonna be alright.

It's too late now.
Let it all go
Cause it's never gonna be alright.

    General CommentTracey is singing a semi-autobiographical song about her life. Talking about making pst miostakes and how it's too late to go back but everything is gonna be fine.

    She's singing to the audience about growing up, the good things and the bad things that make you who you are. She sings specifically about a boy she liked that ignored her and presumably chose her friend over her, in effect, "murdering" their friendship.

    The song goes on to describe laying under the stars and wondering if that boy she thought she loved so long ago was still the fairest of them all. The Mirrorball is an allegory for the reflecting back on her life.

    General Commenti think it's about having a falling out of sorts with somebody and looking back on all the madness that's gone down. ya know, trying to convince yourself that everything's gonna be fine.

    quite possibly one of my favorite lines ever: "well i guess some boys adored me, but the one i loved ignored me and caused me in the end to murder my best friend."

    General Commenteven though the music is really cheesy, this song says just the right thing, at just the right time, to me. becuase it sucks when you love someone and they dont love you back.

    haha and when you have nobody to talk about it with, its really nice to listen to the song and know that somebody else, and maybe a lot of other people feel the same way, and maybe want to talk too.

    General CommentFrom start to finish Mirrorball is one of the most beautiful pieces of art i have ever heard.
    A good house track eases the listener in a deep trance and drains his or her emotions occasionally sparking sporadic thoughts outside of the lyrics.

    This song does much more than that.
    The way the words are put together simply begs to share your memories. The song interacts with the listener celebrating commiserating and often times losing him/her in the beat all the way through.

    You know you have a winning artist when a track can Talk to you.

    But of course.
    This interpretation and critique is just my humble opinion...
