Lyrics

At the bottom there's a stir
and now the surface is a blur
Tell the truth like it's a joke
and don't fix the part that isn't broke

I know I'm just a memory
and I know that's how it's gotta be.
So tell the mirror on the wall,
Mirror, mirror on the wall
There's no reflection here at all.

Mirror, mirror on the wall
There's no reflection here at all.

I'm so tired I can't sleep
the secrets that my secrets keep
Down the stairway to the church
blackbird's hanging in the lurch

I don't want to see my name in stone
I've tied a ribbon round the bone
Took a ride in a yellow car
and I bought myself an old guitar.

Things ain't what they used to be
I got a devil after me.
Tell the mirror on the wall,
Mirror mirror on the wall,
There's no reflection here at all.

Mirror, mirror on the wall
There's no reflection here at all.

You're looking high you're looking low.
and you've got something on your mind
did someone give you bad directions?
Were you in the wrong place at the wrong time?

They found a body in the river
they found a note left in the sand
Leave my worries to the water
and leave my body to the land.
