I see a face, that face is mine
The mirror marks, the change in time
A face I'll never see again
And mine will never be the same

That face was fine only yesterday
My problems seemed so far away

Reflections I see of myself
As in sickness, as in health
As she left, as for worse
No chance to re-rehearse

Try to forget, try not to see
Who is that face looking at me
Reflections of yesterday
If only I could make you stay

One day passes like a year (she wouldn't say)
She wouldn't say what made her leave
I didn't think she'd ever go
And why she did I'll never know

I wish I could return and see
But now it's just a memory
Reflections of yesterday

Reflections of yesterday

I see a face, that face is mine (the mirror marks)
The mirror marks the change in time
A face I'll never see again
And mine will never be the same

Reflections of yesterday

Reflections of yesterday

Reflections of yesterday

Reflections of yesterday
Reflections of yesterday
Reflections of yesterday
Reflections of yesterday
Reflections of yesterday
Reflections of yesterday
