21 - Broken Mirror

Yeah — mind slow,
I been sipping just to make my mind go
I been sipping at the thought of you
I been thinking, “what I gotta do”
You been comparing me to the past one
One mistake later you comparing me to the next one
I’m just trynna be the best one
I’m wondering what I gotta do for you, do to ya showing how I prove to ya, how I move to ya, I gotta make a move to ya
You more than a body that I like, and I like so well.
You not a object I can show and tell
Irony is you want love that I show and tell. Well . . .
Gotta do what I gotta a do and do it again
Do it enough times, it become a sin
Living in complacency not living within
Get it right a few times, get it wrong more
trynna learn the right steps before I hit the floor
Hit the ground running; make something outta nothing
All I know there something right here
when we’re together trust there’s no fear
Intimate matters on the hush hush so
Broken mirror pieces in the hardwood floor

All I ever saw was a Broken Mirror baby
All I ever knew was a shattered image baby
See I know that you’re good, I know that you’re special
Share all your pain, you know that I’ll let you
Carry your burden, carry your pain
Carry your mind before you lose it again
This whole time you think I’m talking to you,
Even when the mirror broken all to see is you
So in the end, all this pain I’ve caused
I’m trying to fix now, put all this on pause
Put all this on me, why can’t I see
That this whole time I’ve been looking at me
So understand baby you’ve been putting this on yourself
When I couldn’t find a good reflection of my self
My own self worth I couldn’t find fast
I spent our whole lives comparing our past
See, a Dangerous mind creates dangerous thoughts
I never could make the self-doubt stop
I couldn’t suspend the disbelief in myself.
I could never invest in my self wealth
Self worth my networth, liquidate the network
Alone with the art, solitude my best work

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
