2 Hour Track Sundays week 263 (been way too long since I took part). Theme was "Mirror". I got in an hour late so I only got one hour to make this one. Hope you like!

Look into the glass, and see
The figure of what you could be--
The greatness that you won't achieve
If you sit and you don't believe.
You always say you're not enough
You always deny yourself love.
You wait for signs coming from above,
But you let it treat you rough.

There's no joy without some pain,
No rainbows without the rain.
Drifting down a one way lane
Trying to find what I can't feign
Always so much hiding I can't lie,
I have become afraid to die.
All I can do is try
To make it to a bluer sky.
Please free my soul, just like you do.
You know what we have all been through.
When you're here, I know it's true,
But I can't help feeling blue.
Tell me how it can be clearer
When I cannot help but fear her.
I tell you that you don't want to hear her,
Standing on the outside of a one way mirror.

for a 2 hour track, this is great! im sure if you decided to make this a full track, it could go places! really sounds like Depeshe Mode, but he was on a budget and rushed. that hi-hat i might replace with a natural hat, rather than a synth, though. at least a different synth hat.

Man, I need to sign into Newgrounds more often so I can see these responses.

It's not my usual style, but maybe I could turn it into it.

I really dig the lyrics, the vocal delivery and instrumental is really soothing too. Sick track.

Reali-tGlitch responds:

Thank you! I was worried it wouldn't turn out all that great, having only an hour to make this one. Lyrics are always so much fun, at least.
