[Cm]I went back to the doctor[Bb] [F]
To get another shrink
I sit and tell him about my weekend
But he never betrays what he thinks
[Cm]Can you see the [Cm7]real me? [F/C]Doctor, [Fii]doctor
[Cm]Can you see the [Cm7]real me? [F/C]Doctor, oh, [C]doctor
I went back to my mother, I said, I'm crazy ma, help me
She said, I know how it feels, son, 'cuz it runs in the family
Can you see the real me? Mother, mother
Can you see the real me? Mother, oh, mama
[Cm]Can you [Cm7]see, can you [F/C]see, can you [F]see the real [C]me?
The cracks between the paving stones look like rivers of flowing veins
Strange people who know me peeping from behind every window pane
The girl I used to love lives in this yellow house
Yesterday she passed me by, she doesn't want to know me now
[Cm]Can you see the [Cm7]real me? [F/C]Can you, [F]can you?

I ended up with the preacher, full of lies and hate
I seemed to scare him a little, so he showed me to the golden gate
[Cm]Can you see the [Cm7]real me? [F/C]Preacher, [F]preacher
Can you see the real me? Preacher,
Can you see, can you see, can you see, can you see the real me? Doctor
Can you see the real me? Preacher
[Cm]Can you see the [Cm7]real me? [F/C]Mo...[F]ther
Can you see the real me..............
