She Handed Me a Mirror (Album Version) - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

She handed me a mirror

 

That she had gazed upon

 

The glass still held an image

 

The glass still held an image

 

But it was of a man

 

I turned from the reflection

 

To see who it might be

 

Is that poor vanity

 

Quite how she pictures me

 

She handed me a mirror

 

Rather than tell me "no"

 

She let slip a handkerchief

 

Gentle laughter flowed

 

Just as her lips bestowed

 

A dashing word like "brother"

 

The crushing word like "friend"

 

If there was no beginning

 

How could this be the end

 

She handed me a mirror

 

So I could recognise

 

The distance from my heart to hers

The distance from my heart to hers

 

The pity in her eyes

 

She liked my pretty story

 

I thanked her for her song

 

And then I wrote a tale not very long to tell

 

"You are much more than pretty You are beautiful "

 

She handed me a mirror

 

But I saw her instead

 

She handed me a mirror

 

She handed me a mirror

 

And that is all she did
