Jackson 5 - Reflections Lyrics

Through the mirror of my mind
Time after time
I see reflections of you and me

(Reflections of)
The way life used to be
(Reflections of)
The love you took from me, oh

I'm all alone now
No love to sheild me
Trapped in a world
That's a distorted reality

Happinessyou took from me
And left me all alone
With only memories

Through the mirror of my imnd
Through these tears that I'm crying
Reflects a hurt I can't control

(cause although you're gone)
I keep holding on
(to the happy times)
Oh, when you were mine

(all the love)
All the love that I've wasted
(all the tears)
All the tears that I've tasted
All in vain

Through the hollow of my tears
I see a dream that's lost
From the hurt girl
That you have caused

Everywhere I turn
Seems like everything I see
Reflects the love that used to be

The love you took from me
In you I put all my faith and trust
Right before my eyes my world has turned to dust
The way life use to be
The love you took from me

    Wow! I had been listening to the Jacksons all day long and began to looking for this song ! To realize it is also sung by the Jacksons, themselves!!! Ha ! Ha! Ha! If the Jacksons knew this, they'd be laughing!!!
    I love this tune ! I must burn it on to a CD! I heard the Supremes Version as well ! Both are technically superb!

    aside from dancing machine this is my favorite song off the album, i was never too impressed with the GIT album...Dancing Machine and Moving Violation were better total albums, but this song is great

    Johnny raven

    I don't mind this album, I liked Michael during this era, though Moving Violation is a bit of let down for me, I like very few songs, like "All I Do Is Think Of you" "Breezy" "Honey Love" "You're My Bestfriend, My Love" "Pride And Joy" "Moving Violation" and even "Forever Came Today" but that album is a flop for me, I like "Skywriter" that album was pretty funky, ditching the bubble gum alittle bit. I think they should made ballads on this album though, it's just dance track after dance track. My favorite aside from "It's too Late to Change The Time" "Dancing Machine" and "Don't Say Goodbye Again" is "You Need Love Like I Do (Don't You)" cover, it beats the original to me. But yeah their G.I.T. album is just alright, it's a album I can listen to but kinda skip most of the songs to a song I like and move on. "Let's Go Back To Day One" should have made the album though it was a catchy song with great vocal work between michael and Jermaine. I get that Berry was off doing movies and all but this kinda made the group start to really go downhill in terms of sells of their albums.
