Reflection

Last Friday was my friend’s birthday, but she will be celebrate it next Sunday. -She was my school and my close friend in the first year of junior high, then she went overseas to learn language and she got back home half a year ago- I got the honor to sing at the end of the program. This afternoon, I went to her house -after three years- to choose the song I am going to sing. At first, I felt awkward. But then, she really treated me like the old days and I felt very happy that I could be open to her.

After some time we searched for the song -and chatting, and sharing about our lifes-, at last we found the song! The song which I know -well, even though I love music, I just know a few songs- and she likes. Then we searched for the instrumental music of that song and the lyrics. I listened to the real song a few times while reading the lyrics, then started to sing with the instrumental music.

The more I sang, the more I am deeply into the lyrics. It is like, the lyrics showed the expressions of… me. I believe most of you already know the song, it is very popular for its movie: Mulan.

 
Look at me
You may think you see
Who I really am
But you’ll never know me
Every day
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’s 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’m
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 me
I’m forced to hide?
I won’t pretend that I’m
Someone else for all time
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?
