If You Can See Me
F# - G# - A#m - G# - A#m - C - C#

C#
If you can see me I can see you

E - Fm

E
I could wear your new blue shoes
E
I should wear your old red dress
E
And walk to the crossroads
E
So take this knife
Fm
And meet me across the river

E
Just chutes and ladders and this is the kiss
E
American Anna, fantastic Alsatian
E
From nowhere to nothing
Fm
And I go way back

E
Children swarm like thousands of bugs
E
Towards the lights the beacons above the hill
E                                 Fm
The stars to the West, the South, the North and to the East

F#                G#
Now you could say I've got a gift of sorts
A#m                        G#
A fear of rear windows and swinging doors
A#m                    C
A love of violence and dread of sighs

C#
If you can see me I can see you
C#
If you can see me I can see you

E - Fm

E
I have seen these bairns wave their fists at God
E
Swear to destroy the beasts, stamping the ground
         Fm
In their excitement for tomorrow
E
I could wear your new blue shoes
E
I should wear your old red dress
E
And walk to the crossroads
E
So take this knife
Fm
And meet me across the river

F#                         G#   
I will take your lands and all that lays beneath
A#m                       G#
The dust of cold flowers, prison of dark of ashes
A#m                   C
I will slaughter your kind who descend from belief
C#
I am the spirit of greed, a lord of theft
C#
I'll burn all your books and the problems they make

C#
If you can see me I can see you
C#
If you can see me.

About the artist behind If You Can See Me:

"Ashes to Ashes" is a single by David Bowie, released in 1980. It made #1 in the UK and was the first cut from the Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) album, also a #1 hit. As well as its musical qualities, it is noted for its innovative video, directed by Bowie and David Mallet. Bowie has said that with this song he was "wrapping up the seventies really for myself, and that seemed a good enough epitaph for it".[1]
