Time takes its crazy toll
And how does your mirror grow?
You better watch yourself when you jump into it
Because the mirror's going to steal your soul

I wonder how it came to be, my friend
That someone just like you has come again
You'll never, never know how close you came
Until you fall in love with the diamond rain

Throw all his trash away
Look out, he's here to stay
Your mirror's going to crack when he breaks into it
And you'll never, never be the same

Look into his eyes and you can see
Why all the little kids are dressed in dreams
I wonder how he's going to make it back
When he sees that you just know it's make-believe

Blood crystallized as sand
And now I hope you'll understand
You reflected into his looking-glass soul
And now the mirror is your only friend

Look into his eyes and you will see
That men are not alone on the diamond sea
Sail into the heart of the lonely storm
And tell her that you'll love her eternally

    General CommentI should probably listen to the original BEFORE I crown this the most beautiful rendition of any song ever, but...hmm. It sounds pretty incomparable. SO beautiful.
