Reflections  The Supremes

Date: Thu, 14 Nov 1996 14:50:40 -0500
From: Andrew Rogers
Subject: ./s/supremes/reflections.crd
The first single credited to 'Diana Ross and the Supremes'; better known
decades later as the theme from the American TV series 'China Beach'.
Available in true stereo on _Diana Ross and the Supremes' Greatest Hits
Vol. III_; on a good system you can hear those weird beeps bouncing all
around your room. (You can also hear a couple of extremely crude splices
before each repeat of the chorus at the end.)
This is in Bb, but I think the 45 was sped up to B. Anyone have an original
pressing to compare?

[Bb]Through the mirror of my mind
[Fm]Time after time
[Gb]I see reflections of [Db]you and me
Chorus 1:
Ref[Gb]lections [Db]of
The way life u[Gb]sed to [Db]be
Ref[Gb]lections [Db]of
The love you t[Gb]ook from [Db]me
Post-chorus 1:
[Gbmaj7]I'm all alone now,[Ebm/Bb] no love to sh[Fm]ield me
[Bbm] [Ab]Trapped in a world that's
A distorted re[Gb]ality
Verse 2:
Bb (as per verse 1)
Happiness you took from me
And left me alone with only memories
Through the mirror of my mind
Through these tears that I'm cryin'
Reflects the hurt I can't control
Chorus 2:
'Cause although you're gone
I keep holding on
To the happy time, ooh
When you were mine
As I peer through the window of lost time
Lookin' over my yesterday
And all the love I gave all to you
Bridge:
[Bb]/ / ([Eb]All [Dm]the l[Gm]ove) All the love that I've wasted
([Eb]All [Dm]the t[Gm]ears) All the tears that I've tasted
[Eb] [Dm] [Gm] [Gb] [Ebm6/Gb] [F] [Bb] 
[/] [/] [/]Ooh[/], ye[/]ah[/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/]
Verse 3:
Through the hollow of my tears I see a dream that's lost
From the hurt that you have caused
Everywhere I turn
Seems like everything I see
Reflects the love that used to be
Chorus 3:
In you I put
All my faith and trust
Right before my eyes
My world has turned to dust
Post-chorus 3:
After all the nights I sat alone and wept
Just a handful of promises
Are all that's left of loving you
(repeat chorus 1)
(repeat chorus 3; fade)
