When You Look at Me


When You Look at Me

When you look at me

What do you see?

Am I short, tall

The brightest of them all?

Did you look at my hair 

From over there?

Did you spot me in the crowd

Up under a cloud?

Did you look at my appearance

Did I make an interference

Did I hurt your feelings

Did you stare at the ceilings,

Next door to my house

I'm quiet as a mouse

When I spoke to you 

I knew it was true

When I walked away

What did you say 

What do you see 

When you look at me?
