Lyrics
"Yesterday's Mirror"
(c) 2009 Lyrics Beth G. Williams, BMI/Music & Vocal Sergio Mendoza Hochmann

She's rolled to her spot by the window
Amid walkers and wheelchairs and gloom
She sits and she waits
Like she does every day
Til it's time to go back to her room

But she hears that there'll be a performance
Her heart quickens, her stomach goes tight
Then the music begins
Ten young girls flutter in
Her hands slide down and knead her dead thighs

Still she feels a sensation
Course through her, elation

In yesterday's mirror
She's free from this shell
In yesterday's mirror
She dances as well
They line up to see her
The Prima ballerina
In yesterday's mirror
She's back, her old self

There is one girl she specially fancies
Grace in motion, she floats on her toes
She smiles as she passes
Sparks a flame in old ashes
Arms remember, sweep up to a pose

But she can't hold it long
Now withered, once strong

In yesterday's mirror
She's free from this shell
In yesterday's mirror
She dances as well
They line up to see her
The Prima ballerina
In yesterday's mirror
She's back, her old self

The dancing is done, the girl breaks from her friends
And turns to the woman who cried at the end
She bends down beside her, gently strokes those old knees
Saying "the heart's where it counts for us dancers...not these"

Chorus repeat:

Tag:
Back in her room, she grins at her mirror
A gift from the girl who brought yesterday nearer
