(song) Narcissus

by Devon E Mattys

One day a mirror passed me by--
I never thought reflections could make me cry.
But I saw you standing there:
I saw your face in the mirror.

One day my hands will smell of lye--
I never thought that scents could make me cry.
But one day I'll sniff the air
And I'll know that you were there.

Just give me one reason
Why I should remain--
The ripples in the water
Are all that keep me sane.

On nights like this
I want to end this life,
Just fall into the water
Ending all this strife.

Evil spirits, do not roam:
I have a message here to drive you home.
But I know you will not go
For I know the process is slow.

London, Wall of China, Rome,
Perpetual traveling is what I've know.
But I'll know you won't follow
For I know what you can't know.

Just give me one reason
Why I should remain--
The ripples in the water
Are all that keep me sane.

On nights like this
I want to end this life,
Just fall into the water
Ending all this strife.

One day I will choose to die--
I never thought my death could make you cry.
But when I see you cannot bear,
I'll appear in the mirror.

Yes I'll appear...
in the mirror.
