Death Cab For Cutie - My Mirror Speaks Lyrics




With every sun that sets I am feeling more
Like a stranger on a foreign shore
With an eroding beach disappearing from underneath

And when my mirror speaks it never minces words
'Cause these eyes don't shine half as bright
As they used to do and they haven't for quite a while

'Cause I'm a man who hides from all that binds
And a mess of fading lines
And there's a tangled thread inside my head
With nothing on either end

I always fall in love with an open door
With the horizon on an endless sea
As I look around the ones who were standing right in front of me

And then my mirror speaks with irreverence
Like a soldier I can't command
It sees a frightened child in the body of a full-grown man

And he's a man who hides from all that binds
And a mess of fading lines

And there's a tangled thread inside his head
With nothing on either end
There's nothing on the end

A new position for a different view
And nothing changes but the slightest hues
And I am standing face to face

With a man who hides from all that binds
And a mess of fading lines
And there's a tangled thread inside his head
With nothing on either end

I'm a man who hides from all that binds
And a mess of fading lines
And there's a tangled thread inside my head
With nothing on either end

'Cause I'm a man who hides from all that binds
And a mess of fading lines
And there's a tangled thread inside my head
With nothing on either end
There's nothing on the ends
No, there's nothing on the ends

    I have crippling gender dysphoria and am transgender, it really hurts to look in the mirror and see my wrong body. This song is so relatable to my situation and makes me feel less alone. Thank you death cab

    This wrong body is temporary, one day you'll be able to look at yourself in the mirror and finally be able to be at peace <3
    You're strong and valid aaaaa

    Michael From the Angry Grandpa Show brought me here...

  13. Mous tache

    narrow stairs and the open door ep are by far their best work as a whole

    Johnny Felcher

    Arguably...

  14. Kristen C.17

    Ahhhhhh its amazingggg
    I love.. absolutely love... their album Plans... I highly recommend it

    Andrew M

    Plans is a masterpiece. I played it every day after I bought it. Every song is a complete, amazingly rich composition of great beauty. I recommend Plans as a great way to start on these guys. It's my first album of theirs, and I'm listening to the others and loving them, but Plans really stands out as topnotch.

  15. Mr. Quarter

    This song made it into my top 5 fav. songs. Thanks for showing me how good this song is.
