From the recording Light and Dark
Noral Roy/Roy Hardinge, May 2003/January 2008, copyright 2020
Somewhere between then and now
the young man left this place.
He left an old and dusty house
that has a different face.
The mirror shows the dusty face,
the mind recalls the young
And when he looks into the mirror
the whole thing comes undone.
This shell around me shrivels still.
It’s not because of my own will.
But someone else’s certainly
that makes the mirror show that me!
