Justin Timberlake On His ‘Other Half’

Though he doesn’t come out and say Jessica’s name, he begins explaining “Mirrors” saying, “‘Mirrors’ is a love song to someone that you feel like is, you know, sort of your other half.” And we all know Jessica is Justin’s other half!

He continues to wax romantic, adding, “One of the most valuable things in a relationship is being able to constantly change and be individual, but look to the other side to the person that you’re with and and know that they’re changing as well individually, but somehow you two can mirror each other and be the other half of that world that you both create.” JT, what a lover!

The song’s chorus describes a man who is fighting to hold onto his relationship with a girl he believes to be the “the one.” That story matches up with Justin’s real life — in Mar. 2011, Justin and Jessica split briefly after dating for over four years. Thankfully, they reunited and were married on October 19, 2012.

Justin Timberlake Wants To Grow Old With Jessica Biel

At the beginning of the video for “Mirrors,” the song is dedicated to “William & Sadie” — JT’s grandparents who were married for over 60 years. We’re guessing he hopes Jessica continues to be his mirror and that they last just as long.

“I think a relationship, when it’s working, is constantly evolving because we as individuals evolve,” Justin concludes. “You want to know that the person you’re with is evolving with you.”

Justin Timberlake – “Mirrors” Lyrics

Check out Justin’s full lyrics for “Mirrors” below:

Aren’t you somethin’ to admire
Cause your shine is somethin’ like a mirror
And I can’t help but notice
You reflect in this heart of mine
If you ever feel alone and
The glare makes me hard to find
Just know that I’m always
Parallel on the other side

Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul
I can tell you there’s no place we couldn’t go
Just put your hand on the past
I’m here tryin’ to pull you through
You just gotta be strong

Cause I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m lookin’ right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you hold
Show me how to fight for now
And I’ll tell you, baby, it was easy
Comin’ back into you once I figured it out
You were right here all along
It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making
Two reflections into one
Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

Aren’t you somethin’, an original
Cause it doesn’t seem really as simple
And I can’t help but stare, cause
I see truth somewhere in your eyes
I can’t ever change without you
You reflect me, I love that about you
And if I could, I
Would look at us all the time



Yesterday is history
Tomorrow’s a mystery
I can see you lookin’ back at me
Keep your eyes on me
Baby, keep your eyes on me

[Chorus 2x]

You are, you are the love of my life

Baby, you’re the inspiration of this precious song
And I just wanna see your face light up since you put me on
So now I say goodbye to the old me, it’s already gone
And I can’t wait wait wait wait wait to get you home
Just to let you know, you are


Girl you’re my reflection, all I see is you
My reflection, in everything I do
You’re my reflection and all I see is you
My reflection, in everything I do
