THE FACE IN THE MIRROR

I HAD BEEN DOWN TO HELL
MORE TIMES THAN I COULD COUNT
EVERY TIME I STUMBLED
MY WOES WOULD ALWAYS MOUNT

NO MATTER WHAT I CONFRONTED
I WAS LEFT IN LITTLE DOUBT
IN THE MAZE THAT WAS MY MIND
THERE WAS NO WAY OUT

THEN I HEARD A VOICE
DEEP INSIDE MY HEAD
AND I LISTENED ON INTENTLY
TO EVERY WORD IT SAID

YOU CAN JUST LIE THERE
FEELING SORRY FOR YOURSELF
NIGHTMARES WILL ALWAYS FOLLOW
IF YOU LEAVE THEM ON THE SHELF

THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN RESCUE YOU
AND MAKE YOUR TERRORS FLEE
IS THE ONE WHO STANDS BEFORE YOU
AND WHOSE FACE THAT YOU NOW SEE
