Lyrics: 

Spots in the mirror so seldom cleaned,
Irises blue, freckled face frown
Waiting for the wonder of it all to appear
Mixed signals washed down the drain

I am someone muddled and confused
Wading in manipulated cry baby waters
Wading in cry baby waters

Infrequent glances in the green grey
Restaurant curtains in the glass walls
In an empty gesture, I work up the courage
To turn back to Wilson Avenue

Lost in the moment indifferent to the changes
The changes of a thousand mornings
And relentless endless evening stares
Even quiet midnight visits in the lonely light

I am someone muddled and confused
Wading in manipulated cry baby waters
Wading in cry baby waters

Spots in the mirror so seldom cleaned,
Irises blue, freckled face frown
Waiting for the wonder of it all to appear
Mixed signals washed down the drain

Well-crafted song, my friend. Your vocals added a layer of serenity to the narrative you've created.

Yup this is really well done. Structurally fits all together really nicely and the delivery is spot on!
