Annotations and Meaning

"Salamin, Salamin" explores the uncertainties of love and mixed signals. The song describes the emotions of someone trying to figure out if the person they like feels the same way, while receiving unclear messages. The notion of fairytale romance and the worry of unconfirmed love are encapsulated in the title and chorus, which reference the "Magic Mirror" from Snow White.

Lyrical Analysis

Maloi's introductory line establishes the concept of mystery and mistrust, as she addresses a person whose true motivations remain unknown. Despite the discrepancy between actions and words, there is a reluctance to question the person's genuineness immediately. In the refrain, Stacey and Aiah express longing and anticipation, hoping that their sentiments will be reciprocated. They utilize the metaphor of being imprisoned in a fairytale to express the surreal aspect of their emotions. Colet's pre-chorus expresses cautious hope, questioning whether their heart can be embraced. This sentiment is followed by the chorus, which is performed by Jhoanna and Sheena. They directly contact the "Magic Mirror," seeking clarity on the genuine feelings of the person they like. The post-chorus, delivered by Gwen and Mikha, continuously asks the mirror where love is and when they will be noticed. Sheena's verse builds on the topic of doubt and longing, battling with the conflicting messages sent by the person's eyes and behaviors. Gwen and Mikha's refrain reinforces the fairytale theme, stressing the combination of dream and reality in their feelings. Jhoanna's pre-chorus echoes the previous thoughts of cautious hope, leading into the chorus by Maloi and Stacey, which once again questions the person's genuine intentions. The bridge, starring Mikha, Stacey, Jhoanna, and Aiah, has obvious parallels to Snow White's "Mirror, Mirror on the Wall" phrase, which expresses a yearning for honesty and clarity from their prince charming. The last pre-chorus and chorus, delivered by Maloi, Gwen, and Colet, return to earlier themes of uncertainty and longing, asking the mirror for advice on how to deal with their unmet desires. Throughout the song, BINI weaves the fairytale idea with the real-life complexities of interpreting confused signals in a relationship, ultimately seeking clarity and honesty in their romantic endeavor.

Salamin, Salamin Song Lyrics

Salamin, Salamin by BINI


[Verse 1: Maloi]
Oh, hello there, misteryoso
'Di pa rin mabasa ang 'yong tunay na motibo, ooh-woah
Iba'ng pinapakita, taliwas sa'yong salita
Pero ayokong magduda baka lang sa simula

[Refrain: Stacey, Aiah]
Maghihintay na lang na ika'y dumaan
Sana ay maibsan ang aking pangungulila
Trapped in this fairytale
But I don't wanna wake up in this dream, baby

[Pre-Chorus: Colet]
Ayokong umasa
Sa paniniwalang
May pag-asa nga ba
Na baka ang puso ko'y mapagbigyan

[Chorus: Jhoanna, Sheena]
Mahiwagang salamin, kailan ba niya aaminin
Kaniyang tunay na pagtingin?
Mahiwagang salamin, ano ba'ng dapat gawin?
Bakit ang puso'y nabibitin?

[Post-Chorus: Gwen, Mikha]
Salamin, salamin sa dingding
Nasa'n na ang pag-ibig?
Salamin, salamin sa dingding
Pwede mo bang sabihin?
Salamin, salamin sa dingding
Nasa'n na ang pag-ibig?
Salamin, salamin
Kailan niya ba 'ko papansinin?
[Verse 2: Sheena, (All)]
Ayokong maniwala (Ayokong maniwala, ayy)
Na baka mabalewala (Oh, no, oh, no)
Pero sa'yong sulyap, mga mata'y nangungusap
'Di ko kayang magpanggap, ano ba talaga ito?

[Refrain: Gwen, Mikha]
Maghihintay na lang na ika'y dumaan
Sana ay maibsan ang aking pangungulila
Trapped in this fairytale
But I don't wanna wake up in this dream, baby

[Pre-Chorus: Jhoanna]
Ayokong umasa
Sa paniniwalang
May pag-asa nga ba
Na baka ang puso ko'y mapagbigyan

[Chorus: Maloi, Stacey]
Mahiwagang salamin, kailan ba niya aaminin
Kaniyang tunay na pagtingin?
Mahiwagang salamin, ano ba'ng dapat gawin?
Bakit ang puso'y nabibitin?

[Post-Chorus: Aiah, Colet]
Salamin, salamin sa dingding
Nasa'n na ang pag-ibig?
Salamin, salamin sa dingding
Pwede mo bang sabihin?
Salamin, salamin sa dingding
Nasa'n na ang pag-ibig?
Salamin, salamin
Kailan niya ba 'ko papansinin?
[Bridge: Mikha, Stacey, Jhoanna, Aiah, (All)]
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Please tell my prince charming, I'm waiting for his call
Bakit ba pasikot-sikot? Para bang pinapaikot
'Di ko talaga ma-gets, ano ba talaga ang next move mo?
Gusto ko lang naman malaman (Malaman)
Ano ba ang katotohanan? (Oh, my)
Better say it now, it's not too late
I'm ready to be called your princess, hey (Hey)

[Pre-Chorus: Maloi]
Ayokong umasa
Sa paniniwalang
May pag-asa nga ba
Na baka ang puso ko'y mapagbigyan?

[Chorus: Gwen, Colet, (Maloi)]
Mahiwagang salamin, kailan ba niya aaminin (Oh, aaminin)
Kaniyang tunay na pagtingin? (Ano bang sasabihin?)
Mahiwagang salamin, ano bang dapat gawin? (Gawin)
Bakit ang puso'y nabibitin?

[Post-Chorus: Gwen/Aiah/Maloi/Stacey, Colet/Jhoanna/Sheena/Mikha]
Salamin, salamin sa dingding (Salamin, salamin, salamin)
Nasa'n na ang pag-ibig? (Anong gawin?)
Salamin, salamin sa dingding
Pwede mo bang sabihin?
Salamin, salamin sa dingding
Nasa'n na ang pag-ibig?
Salamin, salamin
Kailan niya ba 'ko papansinin? (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
