I keep on looking through the looking glass
And I want to fall on through
Out of the real world to a happy day
Out of the wreckage that I do

I keep on dreamin because I can even though my eyes don't close
I keep on trippin because its free to a place I only know
I keep on dreamin because I can even though my eyes don't close
I keep on slippin out of this life

Still my hand won't go to the other side
My boney fingers stay locked here
The glass is cold when I touch my face
But I can taste my salty tears

I keep on dreamin because I can even though my eyes don't close
I keep on trippin because its free to a place I only know
I keep on dreamin because I can even though my eyes don't close
I keep on slippin out of this life waiting for the drapes to close

Mirror mirror won't you kiss my cheek
And tell me I'll be oK
And warm my spirit with your sugar lips
And help me wait for another day

    General CommentThis seems like the timeless piece on this album.

    I can never get sick of listening to it.
    Everytime I do listen to it, I can't help but feel the same intensity of somberness everytime.

    The underlying meaning seems simple to me. That this girl doesn't feel a part of this world, and that all she wishes is to fall away into her dream world.

    I read this and totally don't think that this is about a girl who needs to grow up and stop her imagination.

    I see this as someone who actually doesn't fit this world. That she recollects something so beautiful in her past... and she just wants to get back to it.

    Only reason I see it... is I feel it myself.

    To get back to where I belong...

    General Commentokay in this something really bad has happened. Or this girl just doesn't want to be where she is. She wishes she could dissapear somewhere where people wouldn't treat her like she is being treated or just where she can be alone. In the end verse i think she has wanted to be somewhere else so bad she has tried to kill herself, now realizes what's happening to her and wants to know she'll be okay... even though she knows she probably won't be (warm my spirtis could be a reference towards death like she is feeling so cold and the life is slipping out of her and mirror mirror won't you kiss my cheek and tell me that i'll be okay is like please someone tell me what is going on am i going to be okay? and Help me wait for another day is like I don't know if I ma going to stay in this life, in this world but whatever it is there will be a place/time for me to start over)

    General CommentThis is a great song. I think it means that you can do anything you want and don't let anything stop you.

    General Commentyeah this song definately resembles an outsider, in this case katy rose, and she describes her feelings of not belonging in this world and she is saying, just let me go off to my own little world, where i can be myself and not have to worry about anyone or anything...but just dream.

    General CommentIt's about escaping from reality into some fantasy world. The real world is full of tragedy and pain and she longs for happiness. She closes her eyes and dreams, day or night, taking herself to her fantasy world, but she can't stay forever. She keeps getting pulled back into reality.

    Eventually it comes to the point where she doesn't know what's real and what's not anymore. She feels like an outsider in her own body. She looks at her reflection and doesn't recognize herself. She sees someone else.

    General CommentIt doesn't explain what is actually wrong with her, but she is seriously depressed and turns to her mirror for comfort and to see the person who she is, and certainly doesn't want to be.

    General Commenti think maybe she is looking out a window *metaphorically* at all these people who are happy and she wants to be a part of it, but she cant find a way to fit in

    General CommentI Love this song! ndless Love x3 is a genius n said like she was looking though a window it totally opened my eyes to the meaning of this song. this person hates reality so she has a bunch of dreams which she thinks that life could be but then she thinks they will never come true
    "I keep on slippin out of this life waiting for the drapes to close " she wishes she didn't have to watch other people be happy and not her so mabey she want to commite suicide or have a happy life so that she doens't have to watch other people.
    "Mirror mirror won't you kiss my cheek
    And tell me I'll be oK
    And warm my spirit with your sugar lips
    And help me wait for another day"
    She wants comfert that some day she will have a happy life. she is trying to find it in herself
    beautiful!
