The Other Side of the Mirror

If this mirror were a movie screen, would it show the sights it's seen?
There's a baby begging to be fed, a man passed out on the bed.

The other side of the mirror is clean as the morning wind.
On the other side of the mirror, you'll see the life that might have been.

If this mirror were a movie screen, would it show the sights it's seen?
There's a woman getting ready for work.
She calls out to her husband, "Wake up, jerk."

Chorus

Alone in a sports car along the Pacific,
A woman's with him. (Let's not get specific.)
The sun is out, the sky is blue.
His cell phone rings. His broker sings,
"Your stock's shot up as if on wings."
His life's reborn, brand new,
Shining and brilliant and pointed to heaven...

If this mirror were a movie screen, would it show the sights it's seen?
A groom lifts his bride across the threshold. By the next night, her flesh is cold.

Chorus

And here was the dream for the end of his life:
A woman's with him. (Yes, it's his wife.)
They're on the veranda of their country home,
Watching the grandchildren play on the lawn,
While koi and white swans swim in the pond.
A dream come true, solid as stone,
Shining and brilliant and nextdoor to heaven...

If this mirror were a movie screen, would it show the sights it's seen?
