Looking too closely - Fink : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qoWRs7lXtYE

There is this girl I've never met. Only heard of. She is a very fearful person. Not in regards of mundane, daily matters. Rather in regards of other people - what they might think, that they might reject her if she showed her true self, her inner strength. She wants to impress, to be liked by everyone in order to feel worthy. Worthy for what I don't know.

But what she doesn't know, at least not consciously, is that she has the strength to overcome this fear of being rejected. She is just too afraid to let this strength out because of what it might change. It is not as if she is expecting anything bad to happen or to change for the worse. Oh no, she is well aware that change is for the better. Or at least she understands this logically.

But what is still in her way to fully understand the aid of change and its positive nature with her entire consciousness and in her way to her inner strength is her fear. She is caught in this circle of fear and strength. Afraid of so many things, and although having the strength to overcome her fears, this is prevented by yet another fear - the fear of herself, of her own strength.

So, this circle is turning and turning. Endlessly. Until she finds the courage to let go of her fears and breaks the circle. And then she will shine, bright as sunlight.

And this girl is standing in front of me right now. Looking directly into my eyes. Blinking whenever I blink. Breathing simultaneously with me. In and out. In and out. She is my own reflection. Captivated behind the other side of the mirror as much as I am captivated on this side. She is me and I am her. She is on the other side of my microscope. I am scrutinizing myself.

Because I am the only one who can break the circle. My circle. I have to make the step, I have to make the cut and let go. Let go of my fears and finally be who I truely am. Let go and shine, bright as sunlight.

"This is a song about somebody else
So don't worry yourself, worry yourself
Devil's right there right there in the detail,
It's you right there, right there in the mirror
And you don't wanna hurt yourself, hurt yourself"
