With the lights on
I am visible
To you and your eyes
And so you see me
It shapes me to your mind
Gives me the colours you see
Sets me for an example
Of whatever you want to take it
Now here you come near the wall
Turn down the curtains
Put the lights off
See me now with the light of your eyes
What's that you see?
What's the shape you figure now?
You saw me laughing in the light
Looking pretty in the red dress
Fair enough to be fair to your company
What's the colour now?
How's my smile?
Oh you see nothing, don't you?
Shall I blame your vision
A lightless , dark , ugly one
Or Shall I call you blind?
That's what you are with lights out.
