"Crack in the Mirror" as written by and Betty Elders....
You say you don't remember
This thing she can't forget
You say that it's been too damn long
Time to bury the hatchet
And if it made a difference
Well you would say you're sorry
It really makes you wonder why
You should even bother

There's a mirror in the house at the edge of town
There's a crack in the mirror
All fall down

She was just a baby
Seems so long ago
Left a little crazy
Seems so long ago
No one in that big old house
Heard the baby cry
Hide your guilt in ignorance
Hide your guilt in ignorance
Hide your guilt in ignorance
No one has to lie

There's a mirror in the house at the edge of town
There's a crack in the mirror
All fall down

For ten long years he watched her grow
For ten long years he watched her
And nobody would ever know
The places that he touched her
No one in her daddy's house
Heard her make a sound
Now there's blood on everybody's hands
Blood on everybody's hands
Blood on everybody's hands
Gonna come around again

There's a mirror in the house at the edge of town
There's a crack in the mirror
All fall down

Now you say you don't remember
This thing she can't forget
You say that life must go on
Time to bury the hatchet
And if she was so damned afraid
You're sure you would remember
Children will exaggerate
Children will exaggerate
Children will exaggerate
Children will exaggerate

There's a mirror in the house at the edge of town
(No one will find me)
There's a crack in the mirror
(No one will find me)
All fall down
(Now)
No one will find me
No one will find me
