Ella Henderson – Mirror Man

For someone who used to use a mirror as a tool for measurement, I can totally relate to this song. A good friend of mine used to tell me the truth, my family used to also advice me the same; but reality hits that everything surrounds me needs to revolve around me much later on.

That was me back then in the college years. I hated my college years, sadly I wasn’t proud of it. I enjoyed it somewhat, but there were so many problems back then that I never considered them to be problems. Today, I understand it. Today, when I started my new life as a married man – having bank loans, assets and a family to look out for – it’s a busy and hard world.

I learn that if you want to be tough (to face the hard world), if you want to be good (to deal with the bad) – we sometimes need to have that balance; be able to accept, admit, submit and “work it out”. Eventually a mirror would be just a mirror to show you how you look – but measurement is done elsewhere.

Love yourself, but don’t forget to look around you for more beauty in the world.

I love Ella Henderson’s music. It’s got a nice versatile mixed up style. If you think Adele was good, check out what this lady can do. She’s got a great unique vibe and has certainly set her own standards – like how Ed Sheeran shouldn’t compare himself to Taylor Swift. They’re so different that we need them as much as the other.

Ghost was great – but I honestly don’t understand why this track didn’t hike up the charts. Now go look into a mirror. Cheers!

ella-mmMirror man, no one could love you
Better than a mirror can, no
Mirror man, I’ll make it easy
For you to understand
Yeaah, I think you’re falling for you
Someone should tell ya the truth
You see perfection in your reflection
And troubles coming for you
Mirror man, I wish I could love you
Better than a mirror can!

When we began, you could be so shy
But by the end, you became a different guy
And so I thought your eyes were fixed on me
But now I know, yourself is all you wanna see!Mirror man, no one could love you
Better than a mirror can, no
Mirror man, I’ll make it easy
For you to understand
Yeaah, I think you’re falling for you
Someone should tell ya the truth
You see perfection in your reflection
And troubles coming for you
Mirror man, I wish I could love you
Better than a mirror can!You would say that I’m your only one,
But I would tell you to walk before you run
And I was right and I realize it now,
Guess I’m attracted to the kind that let me down!

Mirror man, no one could love you
Better than a mirror can, no
Mirror man, I’ll make it
Easy for you to understand
Yeaah, I think you’re falling for you
Someone should tell ya the truth,
You see perfection in your reflection
And troubles coming for you
‘Cause all this foolish pride makes you the ugly guy
You can try to change, but you’ve already lost your way
Why don’t you hear what I say?!

Yeaaah, I think you’re falling for you
Someone should tell ya the truth
You see perfection in your reflection
And troubles coming for you
Mirror man, I wish I could love you
Better than a mirror can!
