"Drop The Mirror" as written by and Missy Higgins....
"Turn"
He said
"Remove that veil, your fading in the head."
And take
Off your slip
And slip into my heaviness of skin,
And I'll be your disguise,
Yeah I'll be your disguise

Believe
Now in what you see,
'cause seeing me is all you'll ever be,
And shhh baby don't you think,
I'll close your eyes so you need not to blink.
And I'll numb your demise,
Yeah I'll numb your demise

'cause baby who will come more than a mile
To put a rose on withered cheeks that hide no smile?
And if the paint don't satisfy,
You know you can hide in me until you get it right.
So drop the mirror, look at me...

...with polished eyes.
An unnecessary feature'cause I am fine
But this
Talent that you'll learn
Will soon be your deflection of the hurt
And I'll numb your demise,
Yeah I'll numb your demise

'cause who would come more than a mile
To put a rose on withered cheeks that hide no smile?
And if the paint don't satisfy
You know you can hide in me until you get it right.
So drop the mirror, look at me...

'cause baby who will come more than a mile
To put a rose on withered cheeks that hide no smile?
And if the paint don't satisfy
You know you can hide in me until you get it right"

    General CommentI disagree, i think this song is about a relationship where the girl is too critical on herself and the guy is trying to show her that she's already perfect for him. When it says "drop the mirror" i think the guy is saying stop being so hard on yourself and look at me because i can see who you really are.

    General CommentWell for all of those who are wondering, its obviously a love triangle song. The girl obviously wants attention, because the guy is paying too much attention to himself. Hes like... narcissistic.. Hence "Drop the mirror, look at me"

    General CommentHmmm, I get this controlling vibe from the guy. Like he's saying she's not tough enough to handle it, but if she just let's him do everything for her she will be better off. Like he's the only one that can help her.
