A Mirror is Harder To Hold – Jon Foreman


First it was Francis Healy. And now Jon Foreman. Awesome.

You could stay a while longer
We could stay up and talk about last summer
We could go down to the water
Watch the sunset going under

It’s not that I’m a stranger to lonely moments
I’ve had my share of those
Please don’t go
Please don’t leave me alone

A mirror is so much harder to hold

I could try and point the finger
But the glass points in my direction
Sure you’ve got your sharp edges
But my wounds are for my own reflection

You’ve got nothing I could ever hold against you
I’ve got fatal flaws to call my own
Please don’t go
Please don’t leave me alone
A mirror is so much harder to hold

I met a man who’s looking for perfection
Said he’d never met a girl who’s good enough
His eyes are getting old like they’d love to love again
Such a lonely man
Such a lonely man

I see him in my reflection
Taking steps towards me these days
So I hold you that much closer
And pray we don’t throw this away
It’s not that I’m a man who couldn’t love you
I know what these arms are for

Please don’t go
Please don’t leave me alone
A mirror is so much harder to hold
A mirror is so much harder to hold

Please don’t go
Please don’t leave me cold
A mirror is so much harder to hold
