Cover song: “I’ll Be Your Mirror” by Velvet Underground is a video posted to YouTube on 27 May 2021. In it, Chris sings the song "I'll Be Your Mirror" by The Velvet Underground with vocals by Nico, as part of a promotion for the fan work Warhol / Chris Chan: The Lifespan of American Pop Culture, or The Suppression of Reality. He takes some liberties by adding his own spoken-word intro, interlude, and outro. Although Nico was known for her deep voice, Chris opts to perform her lyrics in an ear-splitting falsetto.

Transcript

[Highlighted in bold are Chris's original lyrics]


[Spoken intro]

If you love yourself, forgive our mutual flaws

Heal and love yourself, forgive our mutual flaws

Heal and love yourself, forgive our mutual flaws


[Verse 1]

[Horrible falsetto]

I'll be your MEEEROR

Reflect what you are, in case you don't know

I'll be the wind, the rain and the sunset

The light on your door to show that you're hoooome


[Chorus]

Wheeen you think the night has seen your miiind

That inside you're twisted and unkind

Leeeeeet me stand to show [raises hands to cover eyes] that you are blind

[Puts hands down] Please put down your haaaands

'Cause I see you


[Spoken over instrumental]

Oh, do you think I don't know you?

I look inside you as you look inside me.

You find yourself―your body language, your thoughts and insight.

If you're scared of me, you're scared of you―you have truths to face. [shrugs]


[Verse 2]

[Horrible falsetto once more]

I find it haAArd to believe you don't know

The beauty you are

BUUUt if you don't, let me be your eyes

A hand to your darkness so you won't be afraid


[Chorus]

When you think the night has seen your mind

That inside you're twIIIsted and unkind

Let me stand to show that you are blinnne

Please put your haaands down

[Chris sees you] 'Cause I seeeeee you


[Outro]

[Awkwardly returning to his normal vocal range] I've got in my body and soul...

[spoken] so don't follow the past, follow the present.

[falsetto] I'll be your mEEEROOor

I'll be your meeroOor

I'll be your meeroOor

I'll be your merOOOoooUUUr
