Time takes its crazy toll

And how does your mirror grow

You better watch yourself when you jump into it

'Cause the mirror's gonna 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 gonna 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 gonna make it back

When he sees that you just know it's make-belief

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

    I 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.
