Mirrors

I’ll be having Justin Timberlake’s Mirrors for this week’s Music Monday. Taking a break from consecutive JPop music posted in the previous week before.

Mirrors

Justin Randall Timberlake (born January 31, 1981) is an American actor and singer-songwriter, born in Memphis, Tennessee. In the late 1990s, Timberlake rose to prominence as the lead singer and youngest member of the boy band ‘N Sync.

This song, Mirrors, is a heavy emotional pop song, I love the music arrangement, not too heavy, not too mellow. The song was released on February 11, 2013 as the album’s (The 20/20 Experience) second single.

The greater strength of this song comes the lyrics itself, it discuss a lover’s “other half” after having taken a break in their relationship. The lyrics was written and produced by Timberlake, Timothy “Timbaland” Mosley and Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon, with additional writing from James Fauntleroy.

Mirrors of my mind

Being played over and over again in my playlist, My mind always flashes back my previous relationship memories. Thats why this song have so much impact to me.

In the end, its not about me getting all emotional when listening to this song, its about appreciating the song lyrics and the music itself.

 Justin Timberlake – Mirrors

[Verse 1] Aren’t you somethin’ to admire, cause your shine is somethin’ like a mirror
And I can’t help but notice, you reflect in this heart of mine
If you ever feel alone and the glare makes me hard to find
Just know that I’m always parallell on the other side

[Pre-Hook] Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul
I can tell you there’s no place we couldn’t go
Just put your hand on the glass, I’ll be tryin’ to pull you through
You just gotta be strong

[Hook] Cause I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m lookin’ right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you hold
Show me how to fight for now
And I’ll tell you baby, it was easy
Comin’ back into you once I figured it out
You were right here all along
It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making two reflections into one
Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

[Verse 2] Aren’t you somethin’, an original, cause it doesn’t seem merely assembled
And I can’t help but stare cause I see truth somewhere in your eyes
I can’t ever change without you, you reflect me, I love that about you
And if I could, I would look at us all the time

[Pre-Hook] Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul
I can tell you there’s no place we couldn’t go
Just put your hand on the glass, I’ll be tryin’ to pull you through
You just gotta be strong

[Hook] Cause I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m lookin’ right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you hold
Show me how to fight for now
And I’ll tell you baby, it was easy
Comin’ back into you once I figured it out
You were right here all along
It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making two reflections into one
Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

[Bridge] Yesterday is history
Tomorrow’s a mystery
I can see you lookin’ back at me
Keep your eyes on me
Baby, keep your eyes on me

[Hook] Cause I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m lookin’ right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you hold
Show me how to fight for now
And I’ll tell you baby, it was easy
Comin’ back into you once I figured it out
You were right here all along
It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making two reflections into one
Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

[Hook 2] x10
You are you are the love of my life

[Verse 3] Baby you’re the inspiration for this precious song
And I just wanna see your face light up since you put me on
So now I say goodbye to the old me, it’s already gone
And I can’t wait wait wait wait wait to get you home
Just to let you know, you are

[Hook 2] x8
You are you are the love of my life

[Verse 4] Girl you’re my reflection, all I see is you
My reflection, in everything I do
You’re my reflection and all I see is you
My reflection, in everything I do

[Hook 2] x16
You are you are the love of my life

 

 

 

 

It’s like you’re my mirror, my mirror staring back at me,
I couldn’t get any bigger, with anyone else beside of me.
