Mirror - Ellie Goulding


The Experience: True love is tested by fire. Terror can leave us confused, and questioning whether the love we once knew was real or not. Even if we've won everything else, am I really a winner if I've lost love? Is it someone else? The cause isn't clear, nor is the future, and all we can do is hold on...

The Video: We're waiting, and we'll probably be waiting until Catching Fire comes out in theatres.

My Take: It's hard to keep believing when love was something of the past and we're trying to wash blood off our hands. Even if we can't recognize ourselves in the mirror anymore, it's not over, and neither is the Hunger Games series. The door is still open to hope, provided we don't close it.  


Ask Yourself: What keeps you going when all seems lost?  


LYRICS:


Is this our world?

I look in the mirror

I can't get over you
Is this our world?
Is it someone else?
Is it someone else?

I look in the mirror

And I try to see myself
Wherever I look terror
From the games I played so well
I try to see clearer
I try to forget the thoughts I started
I try to be nearer

To where you are

To where you are

Are we star crossed lovers?

Did I really want you gone?
If I'm really a winner
Where do these demons come from?

I was the girl who was on fire

I was the girl who was on fire
Only a bird could get much higher
(I look in the mirror)
'Cuz I was the girl who was on fire

I look in the mirror

And I try to understand
And piece it together
Wash the blood from both my hands
I can't see the ending
There are people who know my every secret
I'm tired of pretending
You read my heart
You read my heart

Are we star crossed lovers?

Did I really want you gone?
If I'm really a winner
Where do these demons come from?

I was the girl who was on fire

I was the girl who was on fire
Only a bird could get much higher
(I look in the mirror)
'Cuz I was the girl who was on fire.
