MBLAQ returns as a trio (since the departure of Lee Joon and Cheon Doong) for their eighth EP, Mirror.  The first single and title track have the gentlemen showcasing their vocals on a ballad, although we can hear the absence of the other two voices.  And it seems they may have been thinking about their lost members as well as the lyrics of the track about a breakup seem to have a double meaning.

pop!gasa will never part from us…

Lyrics:
Again today, in an empty room
I hear the lonely clock hands
Another meaningless day is passing

Even smiling feels awkward now
Everything feels empty
What do I do? What do I do?

Without a word, you just left me
My heart trusted you so much but it broke down
I’m still hurting
Because I trusted you more than anyone else
My scars are even bigger
You didn’t even say sorry

In front of the mirror, do you see yourself?
Even if you pretend nothing’s wrong, you’ll think of it
I cared for you more than anyone else
It hurts so much, what do I do? no

I pretend to be okay without you

I’m doing well, as if I’m happy
People around me ask about you
I don’t know but I’m sure you’re doing well too
I’m so busy, so much work to do
I have no time to think about you
I took off all the dirty clothes
Finally I know what’s me
I’m finally starting a bright tomorrow
You be careful too, I hear you talk about me
Stop with your fake attitude
You always lied to me and then you left me
So you probably wanna come back to me
But now I don’t need you

You left without saying anything
I guess that’s how distant we were
Now I feel your heart
You and I resembled each other more than anyone
That’s why the scars are bigger
You didn’t even say sorry

In front of the mirror, do you see yourself?
Even if you pretend nothing’s wrong, you’ll think of it
I cared for you more than anyone else
It hurts so much, what do I do? no

I laugh like a crazy person
Then pretend like nothing’s wrong
As a day passes

People say I look sad
Even when I pretend that nothing’s wrong
But I can’t hide my heart because of my sad eyes
I’ll forget you as the days go by
But my heart still hurts, what do I do? no

I pretend to be okay without you
