"Tell Me What You See" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
If you let me take your heart, I will prove to you
We will never be apart, if I'm part of you
Open up your eyes now, tell me what you see
It is no surprise now, what you see is me

Big and black the clouds may be, time will pass away
If you put your trust in me, I'll make bright your day
Look into these eyes now, tell me what you see
Don't you realize now, what you see is me
Tell me what you see

Listen to me one more time, how can I get through?
Can't you try to see that I'm, trying to get to you?
Open up your eyes now, tell me what you see
It is no surprise now, what you see is me
Tell me what you see

Listen to me one more time, how can I get through?
Can't you try to see that I'm, trying to get to you?
Open up your eyes now, tell me what you see
It is no surprise now, what you see is me

Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm

    General CommentI like this song because of the interchanging lead vocals between Paul and John. This makes my Top 10 list on the Beatles everytime. I love this tune.

    General CommentEven though its such a simple little song there is a real sense of mystique or an air about it that makes you feel enthralled or connected. I really like the song.

    General CommentThis song, to me seems to be young love in its greatest form. It has such incredible optimism that it almost makes me want to vomit, lol. The song is full of sunny pictures of eyes opening and bright days and changes from bad to better.

    Though I like the song, the writing ranges from well-crafted to sloppy. The rhyming is sort of begging the question, and there is a lot of shifting back and forth on topic. That being said, there are some great lines. For example, the title is full of optimism and confidence for the future, and the bit about clouds is quite a nice image.

    Musically, it utilizes the power of the Cadd9 chord, and makes sure there's a constance to the song by holding down that D note throughout all the chords--one of my favorite Beatle tricks, later perfected in the calmness of Julia. I also like the syncopation between chords, it gives you a bouncy feeling that feels right at home. I guess that means you live in a trailer or in an earthquake zone.

    General CommentLike stardroplet and Philosophy said, I love this song and have no idea why. It makes me insanely happy---I guess it's the happy and optimistic little tune, but it just feels like a happy song that you listen to when you're driving in the car. XD

    General CommentThis is such a sweet song. It, too, has always been among my favorites. I must be the simplistic melody and the cutesy lyrics that drive it home for me every time. I never get tired of it. Pretty underrated song, too - i guess i really love the beatles songs that seem to get little attention.

    General CommentThis one is about the time Paul got blind drunk on some bad vodka, and could do nothing but babble incoherently. Brillian tune.
