Bruce Hornsby Mirror on the Wall Lyrics

sponsored links
I′d like to try someone analyzing my writing
I′d like to see what′s written on the crystal stones
And see what happens if I put on my turban and start throwing bones

Maybe I′ll be a gopher getting bagels for the U.N.
Maybe I′ll cruise bars in futile search of perfect 10′s
And maybe I′ll be the legendary scandal-ridden pol
Keeping up my solid citizen front when I′m really just bought and sold

-- Mirror, mirror on the wall
Palm readings and crystal balls
It′s obvious for all to see
How uncertain it will be
Handwriting and dice rolls
I-Ching and crystal stones
Tea leaves and astrology
Get someone to interpret your dreams
Still I don′t know where we′ll be
Will you take this ride with me

2. Maybe I′ll be a doctor, ophthalmologist checking out eyes
Maybe I′ll get a job making little skinny curly fries
I might feel important as a security guard
And I′d love to lean on you when times get too hard

Maybe I′ll be the overweight ex-jock chasing skirts
Telling my old stories, you know the older you get the better you were
You could be my right hand, tell me when I′m a joke
And maybe there′ll be sometimes when we feel like we′re not just
blowing smoke
-- Mirror, mirror on the wall
Palm readings and crystal balls
It′s obvious for all to see
How uncertain it will be
Handwriting and dice rolls
I-Ching and crystal stones
Tea leaves and astrology
Get someone to interpret your dreams
Still I don′t know where we′ll be
But will you take this ride with me



3. Maybe I′ll invent the nuclear magnetic resonance stomp
Or create a synthetic hue for you or maybe chemical breakthroughs
Take a map of the genome and give directions to a friend
Or develop a crumb-crisp coating for new cake and ice cream blend

-- Mirror, mirror on the wall
Palm readings and crystal balls
It′s obvious for all to see
How uncertain it will be
Fortune tellers and mirrored walls
Tarot cards and ouijia boards
Tea leaves and astrology
Why don′t you come and lay with me
Still I wonder where we′ll be
Will you take this ride
Will you take this ride with me
