Back to The Real Me lyrics

The Real Me (Live In London/2013)

I went back to the doctor
To get another shrink
I sit and tell him about my weekend
But he never betrays what he thinks

Can you see the real me, doctor?
Can you see the real me, doctor?

I went back to my mother
I said, "I'm crazy mama, help me"
She said, "I know how it feels son
'Cause it runs in the family"

Can you see the real me, mother, mother?
Can you see the real me, mother, mother?
Can you see the real me, the real me
The real me, the real me, the real me?

The cracks between the paving stones
Are like rivers of flowing veins
Strange people who know me
Stare 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

Can you see the real me, can you, can you?
Can you see the real me, can you, can you?
Can you see the real me, me, me, me, me
Me, me, me, me, me, me, me?

I ended up with a preacher
Full of lies and hate
I seemed to scare him a little
So he showed me to the golden gate

Can you see the real me, can you, can you?
Can you see the real me, can you, can you?
