The original by gavin helped a lot, and the song is a lot harder
than it sounds, but its in Drop A. The Sixth string (low E) is tuned
down to an A. If you try and play a long with your guitar tuned to D
or anything else it sounds wrong. There a few corrections. thanks to
Gavin
for the original.
Drop Tuning
is a C#. If you can't do that you can play the note in
brackets like this (6 6)

Oh mirror mirror, your'e coming in clear
I'm finally somewhere in between
I'm impressed what a beautiful chest
I never meant to make a big scene
Will you resign to the latest design
You look so messy when you dress up in dreams
One more for hire, a wonderful liar
I think its time we should all become clean
