"I'll Be Your Mirror"
=======================================
album _The Velvet Underground and Nico_
(The Velvet Underground, 1967)

written by Lou Reed
=======================================


        I'll be your mirror
        reflect what you are, in case you don't know
        I'll be the wind, the rain and the sunset
        the light on your door to show that you're home

        When you think the night has seen your mind
        that inside you're twisted and unkind
        Let me stand to show that you are blind
        Please put down your hands
        'cause I see you

        I find it hard
        to believe you don't know, the beauty you are
        But if you don't, let me be your eyes
        a hand to your darkness, so you won't be afraid

        When you think the night has seen your mind
        that inside you're twisted and unkind
        Let me stand to show that you are blind
        Please put down your hands
        'cause I see you

        I'll be your mirror (reflect what you are)
        I'll be your mirror (reflect what you are)
        I'll be your mirror (reflect what you are)
        I'll be your mirror (reflect what you are)
        I'll be your mirror (reflect what you are)

* doesn't fade out
========================================================


        I'll be your mirror
        reflect what you are, in case you don't know
        I'll be the wind, the rain and the sunset
        the light on your door to show that you're home

        When you think the night has seen your mind
        that inside you're twisted and unkind
        Let me stand to show that you are blind
        Please put down your hands
        'cause I see you

        I find it hard
        to believe you don't know, the beauty you are
        But if you don't, let me be your eyes
        a hand to your darkness, so you won't be afraid

        When you think the night has seen your mind
        that inside you're twisted and unkind
        Let me stand to show that you are blind
        Please put down your hands
        'cause I see you

        I'll be your mirror (reflect what you are)
        I'll be your mirror (reflect what you are)
        I'll be your mirror (reflect what you are)
        I'll be your mirror (reflect what you are)

===================================================
"I'll Be Your Mirror"
(acetate version)
===================================================
album _The Velvet Underground and Nico - Unripened_
(The Velvet Underground, 2007)
===================================================


        I'll be your mirror
        reflect what you are, in case you don't know
        I'll be the wind, the rain and the sunset
        the light on your door to show that you're home

        When you think the night has seen your mind
        that inside you're twisted and unkind
        Let me stand to show that you are blind
        Please put down your hands
        'cause I see you

        I find it hard
        to believe you don't know, the beauty you are
        But if you don't, let me be your eyes
        a hand to your darkness, to show that you're home

        When you think the night has seen your mind
        that inside you're twisted and unkind
        Let me stand to show that you are blind
        Please put down your hands
        'cause I see you

        I'll be your mirror (reflect what you are)
        I'll be your mirror (reflect what you are)
        I'll be your mirror (reflect what you are)
        I'll be your mirror (reflect what you are)




        Olivier Landemaine's The VU Web Page says:
        I'll Be Your Mirror is possibly the same take,
        but with alternate Nico vocal track.
        Nico ends second verse with "to show that you're home"
        instead of "so you won't be afraid",
        and it has quieter "reflect what you are" backing vocals
        at the end.
