"Animal in the Mirror" as written by Howard Devoto and Norman Fisher-jones....
You keep forgetting the lines
The lines that show
Where you were bound
Long ago

Animal in the mirror
Live out another mise en scene
Somebody else's summer again
Animal in the mirror

And stop this pretending
There's plenty of time
All your happy endings
Will they never find
Animal in the mirror?

Excited night
Flickering trade
A bag of nerves
On a balustrade

Animal in the mirror
Slow dissolve in tears
Tears that chart
How we're the same
The same worlds apart

Animal in the mirror
And stop this pretending
There's plenty of time
All your happy endings

Will they never find
Animal in the mirror?

Oh Lord I spoke up this morning
I had nothing to say
Above the hum of another
Raw and exquisite day

Lord I broke up this morning
I rose in pieces and dreams
I was running late and scared
In Paris

In springtime
And fog juice streams

Forget your lines
The lines that show
Where you were bound
Long ago

Animal in the mirror
Slow dissolve
In tears that chart
How we're the same

The same worlds apart
Animal in the mirror
After a fashion
After a fall

After reality
After all
Animal in the mirror
Stop this pretending

There's plenty of time
All your happy endings
Will they never find
Animal in the mirror?
