THE MIRROR’S CRACK’D

Words and music by Jeff Dahl [C. 1983]

V1

Silhouette reflections on the picture perfect scene

Lullabies on Broadway are not the perfect dream

They like pretty faces to— seem what they seem

But Oh, oh, oh, oh

The Mirror’s Crack’d

V2

Camera line, reflection split—nothing crisp and clean

Photogenic fantasies — celluloidal dreams

They like pretty faces to—jump up off the screen

But Oh, oh, oh, oh

The Mirrors Crack’d

BRIDGE [INST]

V3

Blow in town; kicked around, a trifle young and lean

Model eyes mesmerize: a perfect 17

They like pretty faces to— seem what they seem

But Oh, oh, oh, oh

The Mirror’s Crack’d

V4

Getting down, pushed around, taken scene for scene

Lullabies on Broadway never what they seem

They like pretty faces to—seem what they seem

But Oh, oh, oh, oh

The Mirror’s Crack’d

BRIDGE [sung]

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Hide away your schoolgirl dreams

Oh, oh, oh, oh

You’re starring as a Blue girl queen

And Oh, oh, oh, oh

The Mirror’s Crack’d

V5

Silhouette reflection on the picture perfect scene

Model eyes mesmerize something quite obscene

They love pretty faces who—get fucked on the screen

But Oh, oh, oh, oh

The Mirror’s Crack’d

BRIDGE [END]

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Hide away those schoolgirl dreams

Oh, oh, oh, oh

You’re starring as a Blue girl queen

Oh, oh, oh, oh

You’ll never get this new girl clean

And Oh, oh, oh, oh

The Mirror’s Crack’d
