If you could read my mind, love,What a tale my thoughts could tell.Just like an old time movie,'Bout a ghost from a wishing well.In a castle dark or a fortress strong,With chains around my feet.You know that ghost is me.And I will never be set freeAs long is there a ghost that you can't see
If I could read your mind, love,What a tale your thoughts would tell.Just like a paperback novelThe kind the drugstores sellWhen you reached the part, where the heartaches comeThe hero would be meBut heroes often failAnd you won't read that book againBecause the ending's just too hard to take
I'd walk away, like a movie starWho gets burned in a three way script.Enter number two:A movie queen to play the sceneOf bringing all the good things out in me.But for now, love, let's be realI never thought I could act this wayAnd I've got to say that I just don't get it.I don't know where we went wrong,But the feeling's goneAnd I just can't get it back.
If you could read my mind, loveWhat a tale my thoughts could tellJust like an old time movie'Bout a ghost from a wishing wellIn a castle dark or a fortress strongWith chains upon my feetBut stories always endAnd if you read between the lines
You'll know that I'm just tryin' to understandThe feelin's that you lackI never thought I could feel this wayAnd I've got to say that I just don't get itI don't know where we went wrongBut the feelin's goneAnd I just can't get it back
