THE HUMAN LEAGUE - LYRICS

 

MIRROR MAN

(Oakey/Callis/Burden)

 

ďIt is actually about Adam Ant. Itís not anti Adam Ant and we didnít want to offend him,

but he was having to respond to his public more than was good for him.Ē

Oakey, Tracks Magazine 1989

 

ALBUM VERSION:

The water shines
A pebble skips across the face
A dozen times

Then disappears
Not a trace

Left behind
The thrower turns and walks away
A change of mind
Another start a brand new day
You know I`ll change
If change is what you require
Your every wish
Your every dream, hope, desire
Here comes the mirror man
Says heís a people fan
Here comes the mirror man
And if it seems

Iím not the one you used to know
Our little friendship

Left behind not long ago
Donít feel too hurt
As distance heals the strongest pain
Things are much better now
And just a nagging doubt remains
You know I`ll change
If change is what you require
Your every wish
Your every dream, hope, desire
Here comes the mirror man
Says heís a people fan
Here comes the mirror man
Here comes the mirror man
Says heís a people fan
Here comes the mirror man

 

DEMO LYRICS:

I canít get to sleep at night

I canít get to sleep at night

I canít get to sleep at night

I canít get to sleep at night

I canít get to sleep at night

I canít get to sleep at night

The water shines
A pebble skips across the face
A dozen times

Then disappears
Not a trace

Left behind
The thrower turns and walks away
A change of mind
Another start a brand new day
You know I`ll change
If change is what you require
Iíll be your wish
Your every dream, hope, desire
I canít get to sleep at night

I canít get to sleep at night

I canít get to sleep at night

I canít get to sleep at night

I canít get to sleep at night

I canít get to sleep at night

And if it seems

Iím not the one you used to know
Our little friendship

left behind not long ago
Donít feel too hurt
As distance heals the strongest pain
Things are much better now
And just a nagging doubt remains
You know
I`ll change
If change is what you require
Your every wish
Your every dream, hope, desire
I canít get to sleep at night

I canít get to sleep at night

I canít get to sleep at night

I canít get to sleep at night

I canít get to sleep at night

I canít get to sleep at night
