Counterparts - Reflection Lyrics



I've never told this to anyone.
I've just tried to move past.
But lately it seems like my insecurities have got the best of me.
And I'm no longer in control.
No one should ever have to feel like this.
To feel like me.
And even though the good I have outweighs the bad,
The bad is what's leaving me with sleepless nights.

I spend most of my time arguing with my own reflection.
For no apparent reason.
And it may seem as if I have all the answers,
But I'm just as lost as you.
I've spend the past few years
Trying to overcome my own misery,
But these sort of things take time,
And I'm running out of mine.
I'm running out of mine.

So I will pray to a God that isn't there,
To a world that doesn't hear,
To anyone who will listen,
To keep me from becoming
Everything I promised myself
That I would never be.

I do not deserve this.

  1. Forbidden 403

    I litterally tear up every single time I listen to this song. One of my all time favorites.

  2. JohnTheJohn

    I've never told this to anyone.
    I've just tried to move past.
    But lately it seems that my insecurities have got the best of me.
    And I'm no longer in control. No one should ever have to feel like this.
    To feel like me.
    Even though the good I have outweighs the bad,
    the bad is what's leaving me with sleepless nights.
    I spend most of my time arguing with my own reflection.
    For no apparent reason.
    And it may seem as if I have all the answers,
    but I'm just as lost as you.
    I've spend the past few years trying to overcome my own misery,
    but these sort of things take time, and I'm running out of mine.
    So I will pray to a God that isn't there,
    to a world that doesn't hear, to anyone who will listen,
    to keep me from becoming everything I promised myself that I would never be.
    I do not deserve this!

    I’ve never told this to anyone.
    I’ve just tried to move past.
    But lately it seems that my insecurities have got the best of me.
    And I’m no longer in control. No one should ever have to feel like this.
    To feel like me.
    Even though the good I have outweighs the bad,
    the bad is what’s leaving me with sleepless nights.
    I spend most of my time arguing with my own reflection.
    For no apparent reason.

  12. itsnicksharpbro

    I was driving home from work when I decided to play this album all the way through. When it got to this song, I had to pull off the road I was that sad. But I'll tell you this much: That was what helped me grow. Crying isn't always that bad.

  14. Daedalus

    the singer sounds like the one from PUP

  15. Annika

    This song is perfection. It's the kind of song where you fully forget what is happening around you, it's just this indescribable connection between the song and you. Still gives me shivers down my spine everytime I listen to it.

  16. horin979

    ..and even though the good i have outweighs the bad..the bad's what leaving me with sleepless nights.. powerful as fuck line damn it

    Edxander7

    You got milk?

  18. K Winchronic

    I was a heroin addict for four years and this song describes the horrible feeling you have on a daily basis as an addict. This song also helped me get clean which I have been for 7 months. This songs makes me reflect back to that life I don't miss.

    iuiusc

    stay strong buddy

    Phuckaducker

    Have Heart and their song Watch Me Rise has helped me through hard times when I've thought about going back to using. Check them out, I highly recommend them.

  20. itsnicksharpbro

    I've only cried every single time I listen to this song. I swear it doesn't make me feel like shit.

  21. Luis Vega

    Longest intro ever man.

  22. Swagcat

    I was at uni listening to this song and it hit me like a fucking train. No one should feel like this.

  23. Anton Smith

  36. Sobia Khokhar

  37. idgafjake

    "And even though the good I have, outweighs the bad. The bad is what's leaving me with sleepless nights"

  38. VL4TV

    This is amazing, it's my life in this moment!
    From the beginning of the summer until now I've had the worst time of my life. Last winter was the best time of my life, so the difference was large!
    I lost faith because I thought I lost everything an the future I was building.
    Now I see that it's not so and that I wasted my summer because of something that doesn't matter.
    In a month time I'll be singing this song and thinking about how it went south. For now, this song is my life.

  39. ParkwayDrive505

    This song, this band.. Some of the most raw emotion I've ever heard. Im having a rough time with my girlfriend right now and this song just got to a different part of me. I just sat here screaming these lyrics at the top of my lungs, and holy crap did it feel like a relief. Counterparts is some amazing stuff..

  40. Alisoyprincess X

    one of my fav songs ever! literally how i've felt for so long it just gives me all da feels!

  41. MrUsedBooks

    Thugs don't cry.

    Zach

    Rumor has it he is still crying to this day.

    Edxander7

    @Zach lmaoo

  42. Hailtys

    Hey now, I work at McDonalds, and I'm not so terrible

    Edxander7

    You serious?

  43. jadedfeelings21

    lmfao! He would do something like that!

  44. Faryal Memon

    This will forever be my favourite song <3

  45. Quinten Pas

    Brendan Murphy, vocalist, probably disliked this video himself.

  46. Liam Shaw

    Haha that's awesome man, this song randomly came on my iTunes and I sat and stopped everything I was doing and just listened, and reflected. Eh pretty fitting title to the song I guess. Can't say I cried though.

    Some bands just hit the nail on the fucking head when it comes to emotions, I love alternative music. I don't get people who disregard this type of music just because it's different and the vocals are a bit raw. Idiots.

  47. Laurie Leclerc

    nice a song!

  48. Laurie Leclerc

    sick en criss la toune:o!

  49. Chris Woolley

    Hey guys, call a search squad, I cant find my bottom jaw, last I saw it it was plummeting to the center of the earth.

  50. Simon Ignatov

    I cried too when listened to this song. I don't care what the others can think about me. This just describes all my life i've been living with the problems that i couldn't pull through. And i know, I have to change somehow all this, but still don't know how. I'll try. I'll be trying till the end. Thank you so much for this lyrics Counterparts! I will never forget these words.

  51. ec0ne

    pure perfection !

  52. ManOverbaked

    Just listened to this song twice, when reading the lyrics on the second time, I'm pretty much welling up. This song fits my problems with not moving on from the past so well right now. But I understand it all. I must buy this album and see them support Your Demise next month.

  53. Quinten Pas

    I have a feeling you work at McDonald's

    Edxander7

    Thanks :(

  54. Jordan Roether

    @famalam11 I wanted to fight your fantastic capitalization and grammatical flaws, but my phone won't let me. Protip: Don't start and end a comment with "LOL" if you intend to troll a video. Doesn't work too well. Love you babe. ;)

  55. famalam11

    lol u fuking cry baby go cry to ur mum LOL

  56. Daniel Solares

    this is the one song to describe my past it says exactly all the things i went through except the God part because thats what got me out of my depression and suicidal thought s and im just glad thats all over

  57. CourtneyJadeLev

    perfect

  58. Nothing No-one

    Every single time man. Just know your not alone in this fucked up world.

  59. TinyBreakfastTable

    Great song. Totally how I felt when I took those pills. The intro perfectly captures what the haze of deep endless depression feels like, almost like it absorbs you down in deeper. Then the drums kick in so suddenly like that spark of almost rage at your fucked up head. It is just so simple and so fantastic. Oh me and my analyzing of music... >.>

  60. SurviveFor Circa

    Wow. This explains how i feel about myself a lot. Veryyy nice

  61. nathan pope

    This song gives me the willies

  62. iLuminaughtyz

    Tomorrow will be a better day =)

  63. Jordan Roether

    Yeah, I do. People have tied emotions to music for hundreds, if not thousands of years. I'm not the first, and I most definitely won't be the last.

  64. Atrusuru

    hahahah. Great example! Yeah I understand what you mean, but you'd have to have lived your life in a completely sterile environment for a song to stir up any emotion whatsoever. Hell, I get emotional over the shit that's going through the British charts these days, granted all I feel is anger and disgust, but still ;) I'd find it really weird if someone listened to a song that was written with meaning and emotion, yet found no meaning or emotion whilst listening to it, if you get what I'm saying

  65. Atrusuru

    If you've never gotten very emotional over music, you obviously don't understand the entire purpose of music...

  66. theunhallowed23

    Well this song is about experience which you cannot understand until it happens to you.

  67. Resurgence

    I talked to Brendan about it when I went to one of their shows back in March, cause I too be being a Christian thought the same, and he said it was just how he was brought up. No one in his household believed in God, he was just brought up with no Godly influence. So he just lives life to live and be happy. =P

  68. guadalupe Luna

    1Person that doesn't have a life

  69. Marshall Bliss

    great song nonetheless

  70. Marshall Bliss

    im not trying to start anything religious or anything. but as a Christian, it seems like the vocalist was really down at a certain point and fell from his faith, which really makes me sad. sorry to piss anyone off if you disagree with religion i just wanted to say that....

  71. Ulrik Linstad

    I've never seen the lyrics to this song before just now. Holy shit.. These lyrics sums up how i've felt like this past year. Counterparts = fav band yet again. These guys deserve so so so much more attention. Hope to see them in europe soon.

  72. Justafriend

    I'm running out of mine

  73. Tall Rudd

    We share a common story my friend. True music, emotion-drive music, real music. I can only hope that music like this will continue to be made.

  74. Jedi Knight Videos and Gameplays

    i relate to this song. this album rules. jumping ship is the best

  75. デーモンAokigahara

    I do so often get exactly that feeling while listening to music.

  76. Marvin Matuszewski

    Counterparts always manages to send shivers all over my skin. I'm having goosebumps everytime. The message, the feeling and the emotions they put into every little song just fits to so various situations of everyone's life.
    This band definitely is underrated and undernoticed, 'cause you won't find talent and depth like this in a text of one of those pop artists.
    They'd deserve the attention.

    By the way, great lyric video. Loved the picture.

  77. DoughBoY

    @monkeymusic16 Just about how he can't let go of the bad things he's done in his life, and he's looking into the mirror and see's his "reflection" and can't stand to look at it, and he's trying to fix all his mistakes "no one should have to feel like this". And he's spent the past few years to try and get over his sadness, but it takes time to do this and he's getting older and is running out of time. The burden of doing wrong, whatever he did...

  78. BloodRain2224

    damn what a great message.
    for some reason it reminds me of The Carrier.

  79. Emma Smith

    Hello, i have a question for all the panda of this band. What is this song actually about, I would like to know thankyou.

  80. Quinten Pas

    @TheKaskae dude, respect. All I can say

  81. Jordan Roether

    Songs don't make me cry. I've gotten really deep into though, hell, even depressed by certain music before, but never has a song brought me to tears.

    Tonight, a few minutes ago as I was sitting in my car, this song came on, and I just sat. Deep and thought and pondering the lyrics, I thought of my life. Where am I going? What do I have to look forward to? The mixed emotions I feel relate so much to this song. The person I am, the person I've been...

    ...I cried. It was terrible, haha.

  82. Joshh Rowsell

    Simply amazing.

  83. Kevin Enriquez

    THANKS 4THE UPLOAD!!!
