Formal structure of  "Tell Me What You See":
Intro (ind, verse) 0:00-0:04*
Verse 1 0:04-0:32
Verse 2 0:32-1:00
Ext & trans 1:00-1:14*
Verse 3 1:14-1:42
Ext & trans 1:42-1:56*
Verse 4 1:56-2:25
Ext & Coda 2:25-2:38*
Comments: The intro is similar to the backing of the verses, but all on the tonic chord (which is different from the verse's chord progression). Thus, the intro is somewhat based on the verse, but also somewhat independent.
All but the first verse is followed by an extension and transition. This may be considered a middle 8 (it is, after all 8 measures long), but it uses the same chords as the verse and thus does not provide the harmonic contrast that usually defines a middle 8. And given that the lyrics “Tell me what you see” are used in each verse, when they reappear immediately after the verse they feel more like an extension of the verse rather than a contrast to it. An abbreviated version of extension functions as the coda.
