Lyrics:

You call my name then you run for protection
I reach out to hold ya' but it's just a reflection
Through-ooh-ooh-ooh the looking glass

Now you've been looking at your life through a mirror
It's time you started seeing things a little bit clearer than
Through-ooh-ooh-ooh the looking glass

Watch me break through-ooh-ooh, girl
I still love you-ooh-ooh, girl

I think you love me by the way you come on girl
Then I turn away for a minute, you're gone girl
Through-ooh-ooh-ooh the looking glass

Ahh...

You're looking through-ooh-ooh me
Like you never knew-ooh-ooh me

I've got some things that I'm tryin' to show ya
But you fade away how can I get to know 'ya
Through-ooh-ooh-ooh the looking glass
