Mirror mirror on the wall, 
why does his smile look different 
from the one he had before? 

Don't smile only to her, 
smile to me too
Let it reach your eyes
let your teeth show 
how bright you really are 
from inside and out 

Why 
do you show the sky 
a different smile 
from the one you show 
the ground?

The ground yearns for your 
affection,
in a different way from 
the sky that still rains
and drenches you 

Please show me the same smile 
you show to her too, 
for the sky will cry over you 
but the ground will be here too
