I was standing at a bus stop in San Fransisco when I looked down and saw a little heart-shaped mirror on the ground. It inspired this song.

Lyrics

There's a heart-shaped mirror in my chest
It's covered over with a bulletproof vest
It's got jagged edges that protect
The parts interior I tend to neglect

That heart-shaped mirror fell to the floor
Just when you were looking, looking for more
I pulled on the heartstring, saying stay right here
But I've never been good at being a puppeteer

Look closely and you will find
A piece of me that you left behind

I remember the time back in Santa Fe
We had a free-for-all of come what may
The sandy pink earth and the yellow aspen trees
Are just like a mirror to a former me

Look closely and you will find
A piece of me that you left behind

I won't be broke for much longer, I say
I pack away pennies with each passing day
That heart-shaped mirror, I carry it with me

Look closely and you will find
A piece of you that you left behind
