About


“Woman In My Mirror” is a love song to myself and as I like to call my songs my friends, it would be fair to say that this song is my best friend. This might come as a surprise but it is the oldest song on the “Ocean Inside Of Me” album, written before I fell into depression. I often feel like I write the songs I’ll need in the future, like my subconscious wants to leave me a message for the times were we get more disconnected. And I truly needed this song more than any other song I’ve ever written. There were times where I could barely sing it, where the tears and doubts would run into my mouth and break my voice after a few lines. But I sang the chorus of this song to myself countless times through my worst and my best days. Sometimes it was really painful to hear this old song declare unconditional love to myself when I felt like I did not deserve it. But the truth is I always did, because that’s what unconditional means - no matter what I am worthy of my own love and support.

I always knew that “Woman In My Mirror” had to be the closing track of “Ocean Inside Of Me” because what I learned from going through depression is that the goal is not happiness or to never struggle again. The goal is to have a good relationship with myself so that I can cope with my struggles in healthy, kind and loving ways. Things do get better, and they get worse too (high low high low is all I know) - that’s just life. We cannot control the ocean, but we can choose how to navigate it, look after our boat and bring together a great crew. We can make the storm manageable and even if we do go over board, teach ourselves how to swim, how to let our crew know that we need them to throw a rope.

People come and go in our life, but we are the one person we will spend every second of it with. So be kind to yourself and know that every scar on your skin just shows where you’ve been. You’re beautiful.

Since this is a song I love playing live it wasn’t that easy to translate it to the recording without loosing its intimacy and authenticity. It took me and Dominic Romano (the awesome producer of the track) a while to find the right balance. Now I absolutely adore how it turned out in the end and I’m extra happy to have some subtle banjo played by Daisy Chute on the song, since her artistry and empowering message feels so close the the songs heart.

Lyrics

I need you to know that I love you
I need it to show sing that it’s true
You’re beautiful and I’m proud of you

For the thousands time I looked you in the eye
We both cried we both found a new reason to smile
You’re strong and I’m proud of you

To the woman in my mirror
To my eyes and my soul
We will win every fight and conquer them all
When our sun sets I will still be with you
I will have stood by your side until our last call
You’re beautiful

I need you to know that every mark on your skin
Is not shameful or ugly it shows where you’ve been
You’re strong and I’m proud of you

To the woman in my mirror
To my eyes and my soul
We will win every fight and conquer them all
When our sun sets I will still be with you
I will have stood by your side until our last call

To the woman in my mirror
To my eyes and my soul
We will win every fight and conquer them all
When our sun sets I will still be with you
I will have stood by your side until our last call

To the woman in my mirror
To my eyes and my soul
We will win every fight and conquer them all
When our sun sets I will still be with you
I will have stood by your side until our last call

To the woman in my mirror
To my eyes and my soul
We will win every fight and conquer them all
When our sun sets I will still be with you
I will have stood by your side until our last call
You’re beautiful
