Lyrics:

There's a mirror on the bookcase,
In the hallway by the stairs
She always steals a look when she walks by
She stops to clean her glasses,
Shakes her head and heaves a sigh
She can't believe the lines around her eyes

Her husband's in the den but he can hear her
He comes out and steps between her and the mirror, saying…

Let me be your looking glass
Look at me when you walk past
And see yourself the way that I do
I don't see young, I don't see old -- I just see you

He takes a walk out to the driveway
With a bucket and a sponge
He's finally gonna wash her Cherokee
He takes his shirt off as he passes
The window on the driver's side
And sees a belly where a six-pack used to be

He laughs, but she knows how it upsets him
She comes out and steps between him and his reflection, saying…

Let me be your looking glass
Look at me when you walk past
And see yourself the way that I do
I don't see young, I don't see old -- I just see you

On days when it feels like the mirror doesn't love you
Remember I do

Let me be your looking glass
Look at me when you walk past
And see yourself the way that I do
I don't see young, I don't see old -- I just see you
