when you look into a mirror
do you like what's looking at you
now that you've seen your true reflections
what on earth are you gonna do

find some inspiration
it's down deep inside of you
amend your situation
your whole life is ahead of you
your whole life is ahead of you

remember the time you hung out with the boys now
remember the things you used to say
I thought by now you'd be the president
but after all that was yesterday
you've had time to go out in the world now
but you chose to run away
people ask you what your doin' now
you don't even know what to say

you think life is like a movie
where it all works out in the end
I think life is like a dessert
where does it go where does it begin
when you look into a mirror
do you like what's looking at you
now that you've seen your true reflections
what on earth are you gonna do

find some inspiration
it's down deep inside of you

    General CommentThis song was written by Boyd It is an old "Boyd
    Tinsley Band" (the band he was in before joining DMB) classic. This song can be best described as "a song about
    growing up".

    General CommentWe all gotta grow up sometime, even though it is nice to party with the boys...It just shows how the rest of the band is underrated...Go Boyd

    General CommentI heard this song live for the first time last night in Burgettstown, PA. It was so nice to see Dave shed the spotlight for a brief moment and let Boyd step into it. He does such a nice job singing it... he sounds like he has faith enough for everyone to find that inspiration. Amazing...

    General CommentIt would be so awesome if Boyd could write and sing more for the band; then DMB could be a double threat like the Beatles (sure, George wrote a couple, but the band wouldn't use most of his songs...)!
