Dare I Look in the Mirror

By Marty Nelson

C 2011

 

Sometimes it hurts so bad

That I close my eyes,

When love has nothing more to touch

And tears no cause to dry.

 

Dust on the window

Wind on the water

Where can I find the answers I need right now?

The answers I need right now.

Dare I look in the mirror?

 

Silence can be comfort.

Silence can be cruel.

Turn your back on any truth.

Preach only to the fools.

 

Before the fevered word can claim my lips

On this bitter road too long,

I need to find the spirit lost, I fear –

For this moment shattered in my life is so strong.

 

Oh, to hear your voice again

And fire a gentle smile.

Please take away this emptiness

And hold me just awhile.

 

Dust on the window

Wind on the water

Where can I find the answers I need right now?

The answers I need right now.

Dare I look in the mirror.
