MIRROR by Lil Wayne  ft.Bruno Mars

With everything happening today..
 You don't know whether your coming or going but..
You think that your on your way
Life lined up on the mirror don't blow it..
Look at me when I'm talking to you..

    It's quite inappropriate to only look at it from one point of view whereas we should have two perspectives to judge from,cuz the song features Bruno mars. Now let me explain the song from Bruno mars' perspective:::

    "Mirror on the wall": He is talking about himself(which he sees on the mirror)

    "Here we are again": He acknowledges the image in the mirror as himself( which is correct)

    "Through my rise and fall, you've been my only friend": He is trying to say that although people would come to you during your rise and leave you during your fall, yourself(the inner person) will stick to you during your ups and downs.

    "You told me that they can understand the man I am": the term 'you' here means himself( remember he is still talking to his reflection on the mirror); and 'they' means people\friends. So put together, He thought people would understand the man he was so he trusted people and accepted friends but they didn't.

    "So why are we here talking to each other again": Having been disappointed and dumped by friends and acquaintance, he embraced himself. Literally it means, he having told himself to trust and move with people is now back to appreciate himself after being failed and disappointed by the people he was moving with.

    NOTE that the song divided the person into two, the physical person referred to as 'i' and the inner personality or the soul referred to as 'you'. Throughout the song the 'i' and 'you' are used by both lil' Wayne and Bruno mars to refer to one entity.

    This is and would remain my favorite song, it teaches a lot. My greatest desire is to feature or be featured by Bruno mars and Wayne.

    This song is saying that he struggles with being misunderstood. He feels like nobody can really feel his pain and struggles but him. He knows that success brings friends that aren't real. The deepest part in the song is that he says he's his only friend. Lonely and craving real love from his soul mate.

    No you guys are wrong. There is no drug reference. Lil Wayne is trying to say that the only person he knows and can trust is his reflection in the mirror (himself).

    Well most importantly Lil Wayne is definitely talking about himself. He is talking about his past life present life and future life he is telling himself you have been my #1 friend and will be. He doesn't want to go back to his past because it was difficult times. His present life he's proud of himself. He doesn't want to fail not only his family and friends but his fans. His future all he Hope's for is a good life. Even though he may think that the devil would tell him to do bad things. He in fact rather change the bad things and turn them into positive things by making awesome music and producing it to the public but He still stands with God but he worries that past life would get to him.

    This is one of my childhood song so I want, to help people out on want the song about. So here we go red and black there, different but they mean some thing more than color or pride. RED:mean love,family,friend
    ,happness,and so much more.
    Black:mean darkness,unhappness,unlove,no family,no friends,and much more.

    That what I mean color is pride it is different it change that world thank you for reading this. It show that people change the world for the great or good.

    This song is about a man who is hating the worst parts of himself. A man who dislikes all the wrong in his life. Who wants to encourage young men and ladies to embrace yourself. Let the hatred parts of you fade, let the good, unique parts prosper. This song is saying that life is like a painting, messy,heartbreaking, and a struggle but what would life be if we didn't have problems. This song wants you to make mistakes because mistakes leads to learning and learning leads to a great life.

    The song is talking about how when you are going through things or have things going on nobody's really going to be there for you but yourself. You can't trust or believe in anyone to understand your problems or situation you are going through. You have to count and believe in yourself . Nobody is gonna be there for you but yourself.

    I think he is talking about how he had a hard life and how he says that I see my mum smile that's a blessing bcz maybe his mum never really smiled and that the man in the mirror aka him was his only friend and he is always there for himself.

    I think he is saying that he does not believe in God.Jesus came then he died and he is saying to Jesus you think that you are going to come back. He is also saying that he is about to die and he din't come to rescue him from the evil deeds that he did. We all know that God will never leave you or forsake you and Jesus is going to come so he wants us to see as if Jesus is a bad person and to see as if Jesus is not coming.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think he is trying to change, for the better, to become something better than he is thought to be. People think that this song is about drugs and other stuff but it isn't! He is talking about changing and trying to do better in his life.

    I also get dis sng to be repentance but d paintin at at d end is tryin to tel us dat humanity is traped by music. If we chek frm d bible it says God luvd lucifer bcos of his swit music, lucifer was a great singer and also luvs music. God creatd us as is own image so lucifer is uzin music to trap umanity away frm God. If u luk at d paint, u ll se dat d tail of paint luks lyk d treble simbol in music. Dat represents swit music and d paint standin represent us humanity, luk at d way it stands jux lyk d way jesus was crucified.

    i think he wants to change for the better and give his life to Christ Jesus. he's telling us to fear God and do away with evil deeds.

    as you can see he is painting with red black and white... Black-fear, evil, unhappiness, depth, style, evil, sadness, remorse, anger..
    White-Reverence, purity, birth, simplicity, cleanliness, peace, humility, precision, innocence, youth, winter, snow, good, sterility, marriage.. Red-Excitement, energy, passion, love, desire, speed, strength, power, heat, aggression, danger, fire, blood, war, violence, all things intense and passionate.. what im getting at is that the colors tell the story and wayne explains it..wayne begins with the color Red he is spilling his blood the way christ did on the cross.. then he uses Black he is tired of being evil and angry and he feels like he is becoming his dad.. the white he want to make himself pure and clean and happy.. at the end of the video he drops his red flag and when your in a crew you dont drop your flag unless your wanting to get jumped out of your crew so i think hes being done with the gang life

    this is not talking about the 666 sign and he is NOT talking to fing god. he is sorry for what he sings and he wants to let us know wht he really thinks of him self.

    I think he's talking to himself or his significant other, Girlfriend, as in they both know where they went wrong.On the other hand it could be him talking to himself recognizing himself.
