3. Through A Looking Glass

Verse

I wish I could see myself through other people's eyes. What would I see? Someone strong and free? Someone broken on the inside? I caught a glimpse of myself in my mothers eyes. A pack of tears that she cried to cover up the lies. A broken family, call it broken family ties. Little did they know alone at night I cry. Soon I heard she had moved away. With a man she met across the bay. Left me in a pit of loneliness, thank God I had my grandparents. A year later I had moved on, she came back expecting to be greeted with open arms. Had a question mark above my head, is this my mom, yes it is, darn. She changed her features, changed her ways. Left again this time to stay. Always had that same question in my heart. Am I the reason we're torn apart? Is it me, the one you had at a young age? Is it me, the one you had at that teen stage? At least you did stop by every once in a while to say hey. Had my grandparents since the day I was born so I guess Ill be okay

Chorus

Wish I could take a glimpse through a looking glass, and change the ways of my dark past. Make a wish, we'd all be close. That's the family I want to know. Save my mom and save my dad. Keep the good and destroy the bad. Take a glimpse through a looking glass and tell me what you see of my dark past.

Verse

Hang on a minute I ain't finished. The love for a man that wasn't there had been diminished. Always heard stories of this and that. Which is fake and which is fact? Left us out the blue and I don't even remember you. You got my baby pictures, yes I saw. Up there beside my brother, hanging on the wall. But even then its still not right. You my father, my superman, supposed to protect me with all your might. Then I finally had the chance to meet you. Got me talking to myself like 'this cant be true.' Saw you face to face and cried, but I was happy. Said 'I Love You' over and over, yeah just call me sappy. Then you got a call, few months later daddy was gone. Maybe this time when you come back Ill be fully grown. Ha. Looks like I already am, yes. Tried to give you that daddy status I put you to the test. A disappointment so far, hopefully not for long. That's okay, I already found where I belong.

Chorus

Wish I could take a glimpse through a looking glass, and change the ways of my dark past. Make a wish, we'd all be close. That's the family I want to know. Save my mom and save my dad. Keep the good and destroy the bad. Take a glimpse through a looking glass and tell me what you see of my dark past.

Verse

The funny thing is I grew up a shy kid. Got a fear of being left like mommy did. Always keep my head down. Never was the class clown. But I always represent for my hometown. One way or another Ill get up and get my own. Forgetting what the people say, no matter how hard they throw a stone. I know my name, where I'm from, and I accept who I am. Never be the one to change even when I'm up there in front of that Hollywood cam. Got a problem with me then don't be afraid to pick a fight. Ill get the last punch, trust me, Ill be fighting with all my might. Everything that glitters ain't gold. That's the story I was told. Yes it made me more bold. Keep a ear out for the lies. Keep a hold on all the ties. No diss to my father at least he's here now. No diss to mama we all make mistakes somehow. I still wonder whatd it be like to look through both of your eyes. See the pain and the hurt that had made you both cry. Maybe then Id understand... why you left me in better hands.
