Mirrors And Changes

From Mirrors And Changes

Music and lyrics © 1974 Bob Zentz

 

1.  Sitting in a barberís chair on a birthday afternoon  (G-F-C-G)
Stariní at the mirrors hung from both sides of the room  (G-F-C-G)
With me between the two of them, I stared into the haze   (Dm-C-Am-G)
Of all the mirrors and the changes of my younger days  (C-G-C-D-G)


2.  From the mirror, hung before, looking back at me

Each image one year younger was the boy I used to be

Reflections of each season, year, that went their separate ways

Within the mirrors and the changes of my younger days


3.  So I sat there, looking at a face I thought Iíd known

Speaking out the changes and the time that I had grown

A student and a sailor and a little boy at play

Within the mirrors and the changes of a younger day

 

4.  I smiled and they smiled back at me like some old long-lost friend

And we shared in knowing we were just the means to some big end

But our smiles were built on love of life, and time is all we paid

To view the mirrors and the changes of our younger days

 

5.  As the barber swung the chair around, I wondered what Iíd find

In the changes that tomorrow brings to the mirrors of my mind

So I questioned what would be, and I put away my fears

To face the mirrors and the changes of my later years

 

6.  Sitting in a barberís chair just rubbiní both my eyes
Well, I must have fell asleep a while, I didnít realize
I dreamed I rode a time machine across the years like waves
To view the mirrors and the changes of my younger days

 

Hopes and fears, within the mirrors and the changes of my later years    (Bm-C-G-C-D-G)
