lyrics

Standing there between us is a pane of solid glass
And you can't touch your reflection, no matter how much you might ask
All we've got to work with is our gestures and our eyes
And the hope that somewhere in between, true understanding lies

When roles reverse, and left is right
One hand upon the mirror bright
How do you read the meaning there
In backwards writing in the air?

The grass is always greener on the other side they say
I wouldn't know, my mirror shows a different kind of day
Both foreign and familiar, a comfort and a strain
And it isn't always simple for reflections to explain

That here beyond the mirror, beyond the boundaries of sight
We're more than just a product of a wave of bouncing light
There's worlds that we never share between us, you and I
And we're both of us reflections far beneath one boundless sky.

When roles reverse, and left is right
One hand upon the mirror bright
How do you read the meaning there
In backwards writing in the air?

Standing there between us is a pane of solid glass
And you can't touch your reflection, no matter how much you might ask
All we've got to work with is our gestures and our eyes
And the hope that somewhere in between, true understanding lies
