"Mirrored Heart" (stylised as "mirrored heart") is a song performed by FKA twigs. It serves as the seventh track from twigs' sophomore album, MAGDALENE.

Background[]

“mirrored heart” is a song of self-reflection and introspection. On it, FKA twigs reminisces about her previous relationships and questions the legitimacy of her romantic history.

twigs believes that the perfect partner should reflect “who you aspire to be and, like, can mirror.” In “mirrored heart”, she navigates going through a period of “intense heartbreak”, and is cold in her loneliness.

On the 1 year anniversary of MAGDALENE, twigs described the color palette for “mirrored heart” on her Instagram AMA:

"rust on iron, oxidized copper swirling, smudged mascara black and the silver of the apple the back of a mac"

twigs' has said about the song:

"People always say, “Whoever you’re with, they should be a reflection of yourself.” So, if you’re looking at someone and you think, “You’re a sh*tbag,” then you have to think about why it was that person, at that time, and what’s connecting you both. What is the reflection? For others that have found a love that is a true reflection of themselves, they just remind me that I don’t have that, a mirrored heart."

On April 8th, 2020, twigs appeared on an episode of Song Exploder to talk about the process behind the creation of “mirrored heart”.

Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]
It's all for the gain
It's all for the lovers tryna take the breath away
It's all for the gain
It's all for the lovers tryna chase the rush again
It's all for the gain
It's all for the lovers tryna take the breath away
It's all for the gain
It's all for the lovers tryna chase the rush again

[Chorus]
But I'm never gonna give up
Though I'm probably gonna think about you all the time
And for the lovers who found a mirrored heart
They just remind me I'm without you

[Post-Chorus]
Did you want me all?
No, not for life
Did you truly see me?
No, not this time
Were you ever sure?
No, no, no, not with me

[Verse 2]
That's why it's all for the gain
It's all for the lovers tryna patch the pain away
Its all for the gain
It's all for the lovers tryna fuck away the pain

[Chorus]
But I'm never gonna give up
Though I'm probably gonna think about you all the time
And for the lovers who found a mirrored heart
They just remind me I'm without you

[Post-Chorus]
Did you want me all?
No, not for life
Did you truly see me?
No, not this time
Were you ever sure?
No, no, no, not with me
Did you want me all?
No, not for life
Did you truly see me?
No, not this time
Were you ever sure?
No, no, no, not with me, ooh

[Bridge]
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah

[Chorus]
But I'm never gonna give up
Though I'm probably gonna think about you all the time
And for the lovers who found a mirrored heart
They just remind me I'm without you
They just remind me I'm without you
They just remind me I'm without you
