A Kiss In The Mirror

Labi Siffre


For the crime she didn't commit
She spent most of her life
paying for it
Never cried, she didn't know why
her pain, his pleasure
tears in his eyes

"You'd better not tell" he says
"bad girls go to hell"
Well, well, well, well, I say that
Love starts here... when she can forgive her
Love starts here... with a kiss in the mirror

After school she hates to go home
She knows he will be there
hungry for her
She believes her mother must know
Secrets, family ties
nowhere to go

"You'd better not tell" he says
"bad girls go to hell"
Well, well, well, well, I say that
Love starts here... when she can forgive her
Love starts here... with a kiss in the mirror

He stole her childhood under the blanket
He left the lie "You made me do it!"
He stole her childhood under the blanket
He left the lie the sadness half believes

On the train to a far away place
Racing into the dark she sees
a stranger's face In the glass
reflected her tears
Safe? Maybe, mile after mile
But she may never learn to smile

"You'd better not tell" he says
"bad girls go to hell"
Well, well, well, well, I say that
Love starts here... when she can forgive her
Love starts here... with a kiss in the mirror

Only she can forgive herself
With a kiss in the mirror
School Days
