Interesting facts and trivia about Mirrors - Radio Edit. By Songfacts®.

This eight-minute vulnerable epic finds Timberlake wooing a girl. "You're shining something like a mirror," he sings, "and I can't help but notice you reflecting this heart of mine." Timberlake adds that he has come to the realization that she is his "other half." While he didn't mention her by name, Timberlake insinuated in an audio clip posted on his website that the song is about his wife, the actress Jessica Biel, whom he married a few months earlier. Said Timberlake: "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."

The song was offered as a free download when pre-ordering The 20/20 Experience after Timberlake's performance at the 2013 Grammys.

The song was helmed by Timbaland, who executive-produced Timberlake's previous albums Justified and FutureSex/LoveSounds.
