If You Could Read My Mind

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 wishin’ 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 free as long as there’s 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 novel, the kind that drugstore’s sell
When you reach the part where the heartaches come, the hero would be me
But heroes often fail,
And you won’t read that book again because the ending’s just too hard to take

I’d walk away lika a movie star who gets burned in a three-way script
Enter number two
A movie queen to play the scene of bringin’ all the good things out in me
But for now, love, let’s be real
I never thought I could act this way and I’ve got to say that I just don’t get it

I don’t know where we went wrong, but the feeling’s gone and I just can’t get it back
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 wishin’ well
In a castle dark, or a fortress strong with chains around my feet
But stories always end

If you read between the lines, you’ll know that I’m just tryin’ to understand the feelings that you lack
I never thought I could feel this way, and I’ve got to say that I just don’t get it
I don’t know where we went wrong, but the feeling’s gone and I just can’t get it back
