No Use for a Name

No Use for a Name - Life Size Mirror

She was done before the start, always mending broken hearts

Making others miserable not knowing who she's hurting

Father said, "This day will be, one for everyone to see"

Is it true you'll follow suit and have you learned a thing?

It's just a selfish way to go, it's safe to say she'll never know

For every person there's a whole life story waiting to be told

When she is happy it's OK, but then these people start to fade

Then we'll just watch her self-destruct as she gets old

She put up defensive shields, to walk through all of life's minefields

All defined by make-up and a car behind she's hiding

"Father do you have to go, left me questions I dont know"

Any answers or even close the life time lie was true

She's gonna move on with her life, and take it one heart at a time

And watch the little girl inside her wait behind as she goes on

But with this black heart she decides, who she'll take in and shove aside

Until the day she sees that everyone is gone

Getting used to people leaving, thinking true love is deceiving

Soon she'll know how lonely it can be

Now was it really worth the pain? A couple pills make her feel sane

While she lives out the story written for the part she is to play

With so much shame for her to hide, there's no more dignity, no pride

Then there will only be dark in her light of day

And she will only see a reflection, of her father's rejection

Nothing will change until she breaks this life, this life-size mirror
