Mirror Blues

by mckavanaugh

I seen you in your mirror
Itís a shame that you donít look like me
I seen you in your mirror
Itís a shame that you donít look like me
You can grow your beard and wear a wig
That just wonít make it be

I been looking in your heart
Expecting a deeper well
I been looking in your heart
Expecting a deeper well
Your clamís about been shucked, boy
Just an empty shell

I been knockin at your door
Can you tell me is there anybody home
I been knockin at your door
Can you tell me is there anybody home
Well, if you donít get up and answer
Youíre bound to wail and moan

I can tell what youíre thinking
You donít have to say a word
I can tell what youíre thinking
You donít have to say a word
Better straighten out your mind, son
Guess whose voice youíve heard

You think you know whatís happening
But you havenít got a clue
You think you know whatís happening
But you havenít got a clue
I Ė I am sending you My Spirit
Heíll show you what to do

I can hear, hear your voice
But you know it doesnít sound like mine
I can hear, hear your voice
But you know it doesnít sound like mine
Keep a watch on what youíre saying
Things will work out fine
