  • 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 realise 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 Writer/s: John Lennon, Paul McCartney

  • Carl from Apg, MdYes, this song was on "Help!" LP in England as a non-soundtrack song. It had already appeared in the U.S., on Beatles VI album, apparently because it's a better fit with the Beatles' earlier songs.
  • George from Belleville, NjA beautiful melodic masterpiece full of meaning and melody.Even the lesser known songs by the Beatles were top notch high quality songs.The words and music fit beautifully together.Sir Paul has done it again and wrote yet another classic.
  • Forrest from Rochester, MnThey must have had Buddy Holly's Words Of Love, which they had covered the year before, in mind when recording this song.
  • Steve from Fenton, MoI think the Help! CD is a great CD and one of their best. I'm not fond of It's Only Love, however. And Dizzie Miss Lizzie is not one of my favorite cover songs. I find it's repetitive guitar riff annoying. Not that they are bad songs, but by Beatles standards, not great. My point was that Tell Me What You See seems overlooked and underappreciated and the Help! CD very underrated when lists of the best Beatles CDs are discussed.
  • Andrew from Clarkston, MiI love this song, mostly from the wood cylinders and the tambo. By the way the electric piano was played by Paul.
  • Asef from Silkeborg, DenmarkIt reminds me about my childhood-days in the 70´ies when I was listening to the compilation album:"Love Songs"(from 1977).Not Knowing at that time that the track was from the "Help" Lp. I hope that EMI will re-release the "Love Songs" record on cd cos´it´s a good mixture of beatles songs.
  • Stefanie from Rock Hill, ScGood song! It sort of sounds like "I'm Looking Through you." Is George Martin playing an electric piano? It sounds like one.
  • Ian from Lethbridge, CanadaSteve, I think all the songs from Help are great (or at least good) songs.
  • Jimm from Cleveland, TnIs that paul, john and ringo?
    Not too used to that
  • Lauren from Some Place, DeSteve, which 2 or 3 songs are you referring to?
  • Steve from Fenton, MoI consider this song to be a hidden gem off the Help CD. I think it is a beautiful song with great harmonies. If you haven't heard this song, by all means give it a listen. All but 2 or 3 tracks from the Help CD are great songs.
  • Mario from Maracaibo, South AmericaGeroge Martin played the piano, like in most of Beatle songs where piano is a played.
  • Michelle from Antigonish, Canadawow, not many people know of this song, they didn't like many of they're songs, though they were clearly brilliant..oh well, still a very beautiful song
  • Linus from Hamilton, On, CanadaApparently not very popular?
  • Lauren from Some Place, DeThe Beatles didn't like this song, but I always have.
