05. The Mirror

The Sleeping House
by Cool Hand Luke



 

I looked into the mirror
Didnít know what I would see
But it was still just me
But it was still just me
With all these different images
Of who they think is me
I donít know which one to be
And my eyes look like the sea

Oh, what fearful times are these
I know that You donít promise this, but please
Let me feel you now
Because I know that You are here
Whispering in my ear
And looking in the mirror

She woke up this morning
Didnít know who she should be
So she turned on the TV
So she could escape for free
And all this time Youíve been right here
But she just couldnít see
There is more than just a dream
Sheís the daughter of a King

Oh, what fearful times are these
I know that You donít promise this, but please
Let her feel you now
Because I know that Youíre there
Hearing every prayer
And returning her stare

Iíve been so many people to so many people
But I just want to be who You want me to be

Oh, what fearful times are these
O, Lord, you don't promise this but please
Let me feel you now
Because I know that You are here
Whispering in my ear
And looking in the mirror



Behind the Song:
"This song began four years ago at a coffee shop in Virginia and ended last year at a studio in Georgia.

Sometimes there are so many different versions of who I portray myself to be, I donít know who I really am. Iím a chameleon. Our world, our media, our societyóthey all tell us who weíre supposed to be. Our identity is something greater than the clothes we wear, the bands we like, the job we do, the people we know, or the things we own.

At the end of the day when I lie down and Iím alone with God, I know that regardless of how I may feel, I am in Him and He is in me. Thatís who I amómy belovedís. We are sons and daughters of the king." - Mark Nicks (Cool Hand Luke)
