"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
