I've been spendin' way too long checkin' my tongue in the mirror

     D 

and bendin' over backwards just to try to see it clearer

     Em                               C

my breath fogged up the glass, so I drew a new face and laughed

 

   G               

I guess what I'm a-sayin' is there ain't no better reason

to rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons

it's what we aim to do   our name is our virtue
