Mirrors And Smoke Lyrics- Jars Of Clay and Leigh Nash

“Mirrors And Smoke” Lyrics
by: Jars Of Clay with Leigh Nash

I`m feeling older than my years
I`m feeling pain inside my chest
It`s love that keeps me silent
It`s my silence that you detest
Rivers flow into the oceans
And oceans never fill
I want to kiss your lips, but I know I never will

Love`s a hard decision to risk impending choke
But love will keep you wishing
And my heart will keep me broke

I blew flowers, gave you candy to even out the guilt
I sent you greeting cards with messages that I could never write
Rivers flow into the oceans
And oceans never fill
I want to let you know me
But I know I never will

Love`s a contradiction
Many mirrors and smoke
Love will keep you wishing
My heart makes me broke

You will always want me
And I`ll always want to leave
Even though I cut your wounds
You still deny they`re real
Rivers flow into the ocean
Oceans never fill
I want to lay my life down
But I know you never will

Love`s a strange condition
With all the doubts it can invoke
Your love keeps me wishing
And my heart keeps me broke

Baby, don`t you cry, `cause I got it all figured out
You always make me sad
But that`s what true love is all about
Rivers never fill the oceans
But oceans always feel
The waters reaching deep inside them
I guess they always will

Love`s a constant mission to a world you never spoke
Love, it keeps you wishing
My heart, it keeps me broke

Love`s a constant mission to a world you never spoke
Love, it keeps you wishing
My heart, it makes me broke
