"Mirror" as written by and Rebecca Elizabeth Marie/barlow Barlow....
Mirror, mirror on the wall, have I got it?
'Cause Mirror you've always told me who I am
I'm finding it's not easy to be perfect
So sorry, you wont define me
Sorry, you don't own me

Who are you to tell me
That I'm less than what I should be?
Who are you? Who are you?
I don't need to listen
To the list of things I should do
I wont try, I wont try
You don't define me, You don't define me

Mirror I am seeing a new reflection
I'm looking into the eyes of He who made me
To Him I have beauty beyond compare
I know He defines me

Who are you to tell me
That I'm less than what I should be?
Who are you? Who are you?
I don't need to listen
To the list of things I should do
I wont try, I wont try
You don't define me, You don't define me

    General Commentto me the "meaning" of this song is that you can't let a mirror tell you what is right or wrong about you...God made each and every one of us in his image...i seem to have trouble remembering that sometimes...but then when you "look into the eyes of He who made me" then you will finally see the truth behind yourself and your true beauty!!! hope this helps anyone...lol... GOD BLESS!!!

    General CommentI LOVE this song, it makes me cry :(, in a good way
    I used it for my graduation slideshow
    I love that it says I'm looking into the eyes of He Who make me-- it just reminds us that God made us the way He wants us

    General Commentalright, im a sucker for barlow girl even though i dont really go for this music that much,
    anywho, i believe this song is about knowing the mirror can show your outside image but only god can really portray your inside image..
    I dont know.. thats just a guess.

    General CommentMy aunty told me to listen to this song. She's 32. I'm 17. She's my best friend. And I'm an alcoholic... and a "Christian" (or so I thought... not so sure about anything anymore).
    This song- to me, at least - means that you cannot look into the mirror and see a picture-perfect image of yourself. It takes more than a reflective surface to show the true image of a person.

    My InterpretationMirror, Mirror on the wall; Have I got it?
    'Cause Mirror you've always told me who I am
    I’m finding It’s not easy to be perfect
    So sorry, you won’t define me
    Sorry, you don’t own me

    "It means that you always told me that I looked so perfect but it won't say what kind of person I really am. My looks don't say what kind of person I am."

    Who are you to tell me
    that I’m less than what I should be?
    Who are you? Who are you?
    I don’t need to listen
    to the list of things I should do
    I won’t try; I won’t try
    You don’t define me; You don’t define me

    "Who are you to tell me that I'm not a great person. I don't have to listen to what you tell me to do. You aren't who I am."

    Mirror I am seeing a new reflection
    I’m looking into the eyes of He who made me
    To Him I have beauty beyond compare
    I know He defines me

    "I'm seeing a new me and to 'him' meaning the guy you love(because he may change you to a better person) or like some people said god I guess.. thinks I'm more beautiful than I really am and he is who I am"

    Who are you to tell me
    that I’m less than what I should be?
    Who are you? Who are you?
    I don’t need to listen
    to the list of things I should do
    I won’t try; I won’t try
    You don’t define me; You don’t define me

    It's a pretty touching song ^^

    General CommentMy friend introduced this song to me and explained that it was about a girl who suffered from bulimia, who was so dissatisfied with the image in her precious mirror that she risked her life to meet its impossible standards.

    NOBODY should ever feel this way about themselves, even if they're 400 pounds. There are healthy and effective ways to deal with weight, and throwing up is not one of them
