"Honey, This Mirror Isn't Big Enough for the Two of Us" is the first single released by the band My Chemical Romance from their debut album, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love. It is the second track on the album. The song peaked at #182 in the UK.
The song deals with drug use, reflecting on frontman Gerard Way's past problems with alcohol. It is mainly based on a previous girlfriend of Gerard Way's, with lines such as "You won't fuck my friends" and "We're not working out", although this has been speculated. In the concept story, the two protagonists' relationship is broken and they split apart, leaving their home town.
The music video was first shown at the record release party of I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love in 2002, and was available online. It was not widely released until September 23, 2005 on the 2005 re-release of I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love. The video was directed by Marc Debiak. It is similar to the movie Audition (directed by Takashi Miike). It is about a man looking for a spouse and after a series of interviews, he finds a woman. After their first date he tries to find where she lives and apparently cannot find her address. When he returns to his home, he pours himself a drink and after drinking it collapses on the floor. The woman comes out of a doorway. She then proceeds to torture the paralyzed man, putting needles in his chest and below his eye and chopping off his leg. This video was directed by John Armson.
