"Mirrors" is a song by singer Justin Timberlake. The song received generally positive reviews from music critics, who complimented its production and lyrical content.[1]

Cimorelli covered the song with actor and musician James Maslow. Cimorelli gave special thanks to the James and the crew of Chapman university.[2]

Background

On June 6, 2013, Cimorelli uploaded a video explaining they recorded a song with a special guest. They could not tell who the special guest was as a part of the mystery. To get the video and guest unlocked, a link had to be clicked on. Each time the link received a click, a tweet would be sent out, and when there were five thousand tweets, the video would unlock.[3] Three days later on June 9, the video was unlocked.[4]

Lyrics

Christina with background vocals by Cimorelli:
Aren't you somethin' to admire?
'Cause your shine is somethin' like a mirror
And I can't help but notice
You reflect in this heart of mine

Dani with background vocals by Cimorelli:
If you ever feel alone and
The glare makes me hard to find
Just know that I'm always
Parallel on the other side

Lauren with background vocals by Cimorelli:
'Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul
I can tell you there's no place we couldn't go
Just put your hand on the glass
I'll be tryin' to pull you through
You just gotta be strong

James with background vocals by Cimorelli:
'Cause I don't wanna lose you now
I'm lookin' right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space and now your home
Show me how to fight for now
And I'll tell you, baby, it was easy
Comin' back here to you once I figured it out
You were right here all along

It's like you're my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn't get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it's clear as this promise
That we're making two reflections into one
'Cause it's like you're my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

Amy:
Aren't you somethin' an original
'Cause it doesn't seem merely a sample

Amy with background vocals by Cimorelli:
And I can't help but stare, 'cause
I see truth somewhere in your eyes

Lisa with background vocals by Cimorelli:
Oh, I can't ever change without you
You reflect me, I love that about you
And if I could, I would look at us all the time

Katherine with background vocals by Cimorelli:
'Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul
I can tell you there's no place we couldn't go
Just put your hand on the glass
I'll be tryin' to pull you through
You just gotta be strong

James with background vocals by Cimorelli:
'Cause I don't wanna lose you now
I'm lookin' right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space and now your home
Show me how to fight for now
And I'll tell you, baby, it was easy
Comin' back here to you once I figured it out
You were right here all along

It's like you're my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn't get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it's clear as this promise
That we're making two reflections into one
'Cause it's like you're my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

Yesterday is history, oh
Tomorrow's a mystery, oh
I can see you lookin' back at me
Keep your eyes on me
Baby, keep your eyes on me

'Cause I don't wanna lose you now
I'm lookin' right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space and now your home
Show me how to fight for now
I'll tell you, baby, it was easy
Comin' back here to you once I figured it out
You were right here all along (Amy: You were right there all along!)

It's like you're my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn't get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it's clear as this promise
That we're making two reflections into one
'Cause it's like you're my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me
