Story of Song

‘Mirrors’ is about Justin Timberlake’s wife Jessica Biel. Justin confirmed that when he posted an audio clip on his website, saying: “It’s definitely a special song for me. ‘Mirrors’ is a love song to someone that you feel like is, sort of your other half and it became a play on that. Not specifically about looking into a mirror. 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 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. I think a relationship, when it’s working, is constantly evolving because we as individuals evolve. You want to know that the person you’re with is evolving with you. People change like seasons. We’re always growing, always evolving, and to know that the other half of a special part of your life is, like I said, mirroring you, but also being an individual in their own way.”
