WHERE`S THE SHOW? (J. Ambrose) There’s a buzz Goin’ ‘round the town All the kids are hanging out They’re running wild tonight Looking for a little fun Racing down to the city lights They want to make the scene They’re gonna rock tonight And just have a little fun Chorus: Everybody wants to know Everybody wants to go So where’s the show? Yeah, where’s the show? Hanging out all around the stage There’s lightning in the air The feeling’s everywhere Gonna raise a little hell The band is waiting in the wings The crowd begins to scream Thunder’s coming down Rock has been unleashed Repeat Chorus (x2) There’s a buzz Goin’ ‘round the town All the kids are hanging out They’re running wild tonight Looking for a little fun Racing down to the city lights They want to make the scene They’re gonna rock tonight And just have a little fun Repeat Chorus

CHAINS (J. Ambrose) I close my eyes But still I see your face I try to run but there’s no escape You’re in my mind Both day and night You won’t give up Without a fight There’s no place I can ever run And there’s no way The damage can be undone Chorus: You wrapped these chains Around my heart Chains … tearing me apart Chains … locked up from the start As time goes by My memories are of you And your lies were the only truth You’re in my mind both day and night You won’t give up without a fight There’s no place I can ever run And there’s no way The damage can be undone Repeat Chorus Take these chains away from me now Unlock my heart and set me free And there’s no place I can ever run And there’s no way The damage can be undone Repeat Chorus

RUN IN THE NIGHT (J. Ambrose) City’s calling But I’m not going down The night is falling Won’t see you around Dreams are calling Where you’ll be found She said she could never see A way for her heart to be free Love’s so painful But there are things That you don’t know And in your dreams They will show Close your eyes and … Chorus: Run in the night, run in the night Run in the night, run in the night In love she’s been abused It’s really hurt me too Love’s so painful But if you feel the way I do Then let your feelings Show through Close your eyes and … Repeat Chorus Close your eyes And I’ll be there in your dream City’s calling But I’m not going down The night is falling Can’t see you around Dreams are calling Where you’ll be found A wounded heart will heal When you feel the things I feel Love’s so painful But there are things That you don’t know And in your dreams they will show Close your eyes and … Repeat Chorus (x2) Ohh, run in the night Ohh, run in the night

STRAIGHT THRU THE HEART (M. Miranda) I’m paralyzed You’re turning me to stone When you looked in my eyes I couldn’t turn away I’m hypnotized You cast your spell on me I’m feeling something strange I just don’t understand But I … got to make you see Tonight … what you’ve done to me Chorus: You got me Straight thru the heart You know that it’s wrong And I’m burning for you girl You got me Straight thru the heart And now I’m burning Burning for you You’re dangerous Death in high heels You’re killin’ me No this can’t be for real I’m tongue-tied I just can’t find the words Am I a fool to think You want a guy like me? But I … got to make you see Tonight … what you’ve done to me Repeat Chorus Ooh, she’s like A picture in a magazine Perfection like I’ve never seen And I make my move She turns and walks out that door I want to scream, “Hey no, don’t go!” Repeat Chorus (x2)

HOLD ON (A. Meyer) I can’t take it no more She’s out of control How can she be so cold? She’s got the look in her eyes She’s somewhere else The truth is starting to show Does she still need me? Why won’t she let me know? Chorus: Hold on … never let me go Hold on … let your feelings show Hold on… I just can’t wait Hold on … before it’s too late It wasn’t long ago when we first met We were lovers right from the start But now the times have changed I see you slipping away And now I’m falling apart Does she still need me? Why won’t she let me know? Repeat Chorus She’s got a hold on me Why won’t she set me free? Does she still need me? Why won’t she let me know? Give it to me baby I just can’t wait It’s much too late Can’t take it no more I’m walking out that door Hold on … hold on

DREAMS COME TRUE (M. Miranda) When I saw you I knew it was meant to be It’s like I knew you Though you never laid eyes on me When I’m near you My heart begins to pound I’m feeling antsy ‘Cause tonight you come around Chorus: Dreams come true; I know that they do Dreams come true I can’t believe I’m here with you Dreams come true Seems like a lifetime Now you’re mine, all mine Dreams come true No more waiting to be with you It’s no daydream Your love’s so real to me All those feelings I thought I lost Come back to me Standing closer I can feel your body heat You drive me crazy You’re what I want You’re what I need Repeat Chorus When I look into your eyes I can see that look In your eyes says tonight Tonight you’re here for me Repeat Chorus

CHANGE OF HEART (M. Miranda) In your world There’s no room for anyone else You close your eyes and ears And live just for yourself You know love can stretch so far You took it past the breaking point But if you think it through And see the truth I‘ll be here for you If you have a change of heart Chorus: (Change of heart) I should have seen where it will lead Right from the start (Change of heart) Now i’m ready to start again If you have a change of heart (Change of heart) If you don’t believe it could be true Your hurtful ways Will leave you all alone Sometimes I wonder If I’m in your mind at all Do you ever pick up the phone And start to make a call? Locked inside yourself Insulated from the pain You hold it all inside I see it in your eyes But still we play these games But you can have A change of heart (Change of heart) Girl can you read That this is tearing us apart (Change of heart) Now i’m ready to start again If you have a change of heart (Change of heart) If you don’t believe it could be true Your hurtful ways Will leave you all alone It’s not too late To change your mind You know I’m still waiting For you to have a change of heart (Change of heart) I should have seen where it will lead Right from the start (Change of heart) Now I’m ready to start again If you have a change of heart If you don’t believe it could be true Your hurtful ways Will leave you all alone HOLD ON (A. Meyer) I can’t take it no more She’s out of control How can she be so cold? She’s got the look in her eyes She’s somewhere else The truth is starting to show Does she still need me? Why won’t she let me know? Chorus: Hold on … never let me go Hold on … let your feelings show Hold on… I just can’t wait Hold on … before it’s too late It wasn’t long ago when we first met We were lovers right from the start But now the times have changed I see you slipping away And now I’m falling apart Does she still need me? Why won’t she let me know? Repeat Chorus She’s got a hold on me Why won’t she set me free? Does she still need me? Why won’t she let me know? Give it to me baby I just can’t wait It’s much too late Can’t take it no more I’m walking out that door Hold on … hold on

DANGEROUS LOVE (M. Miranda) Why don’t I have the strength To turn away? She’s got me caught in her spell I thought I knew where I stood But now I’m so confused I know what I’ve got to lose I’m staring at this ring on my hand Could this be Heaven Or will it be Hell? Like a fly that’s caught In a spider’s dangling web She leads me closer into her lair Chorus: Dangerous love Has got a hold on me Dangerous love I can’t break free I can feel her breath Warm against my ear I try to tell myself I’ve nothing to fear One look into those eyes And I start to lose all hope I’m beginning to totally lose control Dangerous love Has got a hold on me Dangerous love I can’t break free Dangerous love I’ve got to turn away Dangerous love If you play, you’ll pay You wanna face the consequence? Now play the game at my expense Repeat Chorus
9.
BURNING UP (M. Miranda) On a dark city street The lords of nighttime Are out of control Don’t go walking alone This West Side Story’s About to unfold They’re running wild in the streets Angry hearts calling for war The city sidewalk’s their home That’s where they roam Refusing to be overthrown Chorus: Burning up The night’s on fire tonight The night is burning up ‘Til the dawn turns to light Eye to eye, face to face Knife blades glisten In the moonlight Prepared to fight for their honor First blood falls At the stroke of midnight The shadows dance On the pavement stones Echoes of time in the dark Under the steet lamp light Burning so bright The flames of their passion ignites Repeat Chorus No one can tell them they’re wrong Will they live to tell the story? Night long the fire rages On and on and on Repeat Chorus (x2)

about

After New York's SINFUL had come to an end guitarist Jimmy Ambrose and bassist Nars Lopez began to put together a new project with new line-up and a slight change in musical direction.

The pair would begin with taking some songs Ambrose had written and go right into the studio to record some demos. Friends from other bands would fill in on these recordings. Also joining them would be ex-SINFUL keyboardist Bill Myer.

Still without a solid lie-up Ambrose and Lopez began searching for permanent members for what would be dubbed MIRRORS IMAGE.

The newly forming band would bring in a vocalist that would not last long. Bill Meyer would soon after depart as well. This was not getting off to a good start. And then one night while checking out a potential drummer at a gig Ambrose’s attention would be drawn to the band’s guitarist and his vocal chops. The drummer would not workout and the guitarist/singer also appeared to be a dead-end until a twist of fate occurred in the form of the answering of a placed ad in a local paper. The ad would be answered by Andy Meyer, that same guitarist Ambrose had seen.

While still searching for a drummer, Ambrose, Lopez and new lead vocalist Andy Meyers would go back into the studio and re-record those earlier demos, this time with Andy’s vocals.

Through a recommendation, the band would come across drummer Harry Finnegan. Finnegan’s hard-hitting style and ability to sing harmonies would make a fine addition to MIRRORS IMAGE.

Still, MIRRORS IMAGE were missing one more element to fill out the sound and this would be solved by the addition of second guitarist Mike Miranda.

Miranda had a reputation as one of the best guitarists in the area, having worked with recording artists like D.L. Byron, Klaus Nomi and quite a few others. Ambrose and Miranda had been acquaintances for quite a while and after hearing the grapevine that Miranda’s band DILLINGER had recently broken up Ambrose would give him a call. The partnering of the guitarists would prove to be an asset, not only was Miranda an incredible guitarist, but he was also a very strong songwriter. Now there were three writers in the band.

As the band started to come together MIRRORS IMAGE would see yet another line-up change when bassist Nars Lopez decided to take a break from playing music to pursue other interests. Lopez would be replaced with Rick Lehland on bass.

MIRRORS IMAGE quickly set out onto the local circuit picking up gigs where they would work on becoming tight as a unit before going into the studio. Once the band was ready they headed to Eddie Solan’s recording studio to begin laying down tracks. Solan was KISS’s longtime live sound engineer and had also worked with other New York bands.

He had expressed interest in producing tracks for MIRRORS IMAGE after hearing the band. Out of those recording sessions came a second four-song demo.

The band continued to gig write more material and circulate the demo to the major record labels. Another surprise hit the band when Lehland would decide to depart. They would fill the vacancy with former LUV SHY bassist Rob Shay.

Losing no momentum, Shay learned all the material quickly as the band continued forward as several labels began coming to check the band out. MIRRORS IMAGE would then record two additional songs for a new demo that would now start garnering some serious record label interest, yet a deal did not materialize. At this time musical differences began to arise among the members; half of the band wanted to go back to basics and a more pure rock n roll approach was becoming fashionable with the growing popularity of Guns n Roses, while the other half of the band wanted to continue in their melodic and more progressively complex direction. This division would cause the end of the band starting with Shayexiting first. Another bassist would be brought in but soon after Ambrose himself would finally leave. Mike Miranda, Andy Meyer and Harry Finnegan would continue for a while but that would eventually come to an end.

MIRRORS IMAGE never managed to secure a deal and in the great scheme of things had a pretty short life span. However, despite the several members changes the band were able to record a handful of tracks of what could have been a great offering to the world of melodic heavy metal.
