She's Avoiding Mirrors
Words & Music by Mike Maimone
(c) 2008

She's avoiding mirrors but she looks so good in dresses
I fight her negativity and shower her with yesses
Why she's so self-conscious, well it's anybody's guesses
I try and tell her she looks fine,
but it's just a waste of time...

We live in a place where the sun sets before it's risin'
While businessmen ruch off to work in suits and power ties, in
underneath the covers we're not lettin' the sunshine in.
I think we gotta make some cash;
she thinks we outta make a dash
I knew this day was comin' but I didn't think it'd happen so fast.

I'm swinging from an anchor,
an anchor in the sky.
Forgot my fear of heights, now I'm way too high.
She's my blue balloon,
she floats along the ground,
and when I get too high I know she'll bring me down,
bring me down.

She loved Rodeny Dangerfield in Caddyshack 2, see
I don't think she knows that he wasn't in that movie.
We argue about it in her parents' jacuzzi.
We could find that shit online,
but we'd rather waste our time.

She's avoiding mirrors cause her looks can be deceiving
sweet as frosty freeze or tasty treats all in the evening
but every morning tells me she's been thinking about leaving
I knew that it could never last
So much future in our past
I knew this day was coming but I didn't think it'd happen so fast

I'm swinging from an anchor,
an anchor in the sky.
Forgot my fear of heights, now I'm way too high.
She's my blue balloon,
she floats along the ground,
and when I get too high she can always bring me down,
bring me down.

I knew this day was coming but I didn't think it'd happen so fast...
I knew this day was coming but I didn't think it'd happen so fast.
