[VERSE]
   E5             B5     (A5) E5    E  B5  A5
He seems to be completely unreceptive 
    E5               B5     (A5)      E5  E    B5 A5
The tests I gave him show no sense at all
    Ab7                            C#m       B B
His eyes react to light, the dials detect it
   A*                              B7sus4   B5
He hears but cannot answer to your call

[BRIDGE]
[piano]
  Ebmaj7     Fsus4  F     Fsus4  F     G
  See me     Feel me      Touch me     Heal me

      E5                 B5   (A5) E5       B5 A5
There is no chance, no untried operation
E5                 B5     (A5)       E5     B5 A5
All hope lies with him and none with me
 Ab7                               C#m        B B
Imagine, though, the shock from isolation
        A                               B7sus4    B
When he suddenly can hear and speak and see 

[Repeat BRIDGE]
See me, feel me, touch me, heal me
See me, feel me, touch me, 

|Em   Emadd9 |E              | B7sus4    | B           |

His eyes can see, his ears can hear, his lips speak
All the time the needles flick and rock
No machine can give the kind of stimulation
Needed to remove his inner block

I often wonder what he is feeling.
Has he ever heard a word I've said?
Look at him in the mirror dreaming.
What is happening in his head?

             A    B         C      
Listening to you, I get the music 
          A    B         E
Gazing at you, I get the heat
          A    B           C         
Following you, I climb the mountain  
        G        D       B    |B7sus4
I get excitement at your feet.
             A    B         C          
Right behind you, I see the millions  
   A    B         E
On you, I see the glory
     A    B      C          
From you, I get opinions  
     G    D         Bsus4     | B
From you, I get the story

[Repeat main pattern]
||: E5 E5 E5   B5 B5 A5 :||x4

Ab7                         C#m    B
   What is happening in his head?
A                 Bsus4  B7sus4 B5    E
   Oooh, I wish I knew,      I wish I knew.
