Mirror Mirror

One of my favorite bands is For King & Country. I love their new song Priceless.  It highlights the importance our society places on appearances. From a young age, girls are bombarded with messages that their worth is skin deep. If they can just look a certain way, then they will be loved.

Eager for approval, girls grasp at this skewed measure of worth. They look to the mirror and pick at each part of their body that is not ‘perfect’ or ‘beautiful’.  This plays into the devil’s scheme as he works to destroy self-esteem fueling a hunger for approval found in all the wrong places.

Trichotillomania adds to this self-loathing as hair is a classic symbol of femininity and beauty. Feeling ashamed or embarrassed by our atypical appearance; we often feel depressed, alienated, and even hopeless. This song speaks to ouer true worth, no matter what the mirror says. In God’s eyes we are all beautiful and priceless.   Listen to this and let the truth wash over you.

Priceless

Mirror mirror, mirror on the wall
Tellin’ those lies, pointing out your flaws
That isn’t who you are
That isn’t who you are

It might be hard to hear, but let me tell you dear
If you could see what I can see, I know you would believe
That isn’t who you are
There’s more to who you are

So when it’s late, you’re wide awake
Too much to take
Don’t you dare forget that in the pain
You can be brave, hear me say

I see you dressed in white
Every wrong made right
I see a rose in bloom
At the sight of you (oh so priceless)
Irreplaceable, unmistakable, incomparable
Darling, it’s beautiful
I see it all in you (oh so priceless)

No matter what you’ve heard, this is what your worth
More than all the money or the diamonds and pearls
Oh this is who you are
Yea this is who you are

So when it’s late, you’re wide awake
Too much to take
Don’t you dare forget that in the pain
You can be brave, hear me say

I see you dressed in white
Every wrong made right
I see a rose in bloom
At the sight of you (oh so priceless)
Irreplaceable, unmistakable, incomparable
Darling, it’s beautiful
I see it all in you (oh so priceless)

Sisters, we can start again
Give honor till the end
Love, we can start again
Brothers, we can start again
Give honor till the end
Yea, we can start again

I see you dressed in white
Every wrong made right
I see a rose in bloom
At the sight of you

I see you dressed in white
Every wrong made right
I see a rose in bloom
At the sight of you (oh so priceless)
(You’re) irreplaceable, unmistakable, incomparable
Darling, it’s beautiful
I see it all in you (oh so priceless)

I see you dressed in white
Every wrong made right
I see a rose in bloom
At the sight of you

I see you dressed in white
Every wrong made right
Oh so priceless
