Mulan - Reflection01:42

Mulan - Reflection

Reflection is a song from "Mulan." In teh song, Mulan had just messed up at the Matchmaker and is wondering if she's really worth bringing honor for her family. This was done as a cover by Christina Aguleria.

LyricsEdit

Look at me, I will never pass for a perfect bride, or a perfect daughter. Can it be, I'm not meant to play this part. Now I see, that if I were truly to be myself, I would break my family's heart. Who is that girl I see, staring straight back at me? Why is my reflection someone I don't know? Somehow I cannot hide, who I am, though I've tried. When will my reflection show, who I am inside? When will my reflection show, who I am inside?

Original (Full Lyrics)Edit

Look at me, I may never pass for a perfect bride, or a perfect daughter. Can it be, I'm not meant to play this part? Now I see, that if I were truly to be myself, I would break my family's heart. Who is that girl I see, staring straight back at me? Why is my reflection someone I don't know? Who is that perfect bride? It's not me, though I've tried. When will my reflection show, who I am, inside? How I pray, that a time will come, I can free myself, from their expectations On that day, I'll discover someway to be myself, and to make my family proud. They want a docile lamb, No-one knows who I am. Must there be a secret me, I'm forced to hide? Must I pretend that I am someone else for all time? When will my reflection show, who I am inside? When will my reflection show, who I am inside?

Sung by Christina Aguilera (pop version)Edit

Look at me, you may think you see who I really am, But you'll never know me, Everyday it's as if I play a part. Now I see if I wear a mask, I can fool the world, But I cannot fool my heart. Who is that girl I see, staring straight back at me, When will my reflection show, who I am inside? I am now in a world where I have to hide my heart, And what I believe in, But somehow I will show the world what inside my heart, And be loved for who I am. Who is that girl I see, staring straight back at me, Why is my reflection someone I don't know? Must I pretend that I someone else for all time, When will my reflection show, who I am inside? There's a heart that must be free to fly, That burns with a need to know the reason why! Why must we all conceal, what we think, how we feel, Must there be a secret in me I'm forced to hide? I won't pretend that I someone else for all time When will my reflection show, who I am inside? When will my reflection show, who I am inside?
