E                                                                    Dmaj9
.         If you could read my mind, love,              what a tale my thoughts could tell
E                                                         Dmaj9
.         Just like an old time movie              ’bout a ghost from a wishin’ well
E                                   E7                      A                               B                                      C#m
.         In a castle dark,       or a fortr   –   ess strong with chains around my feet
A                                       E
You know that ghost is me
.         A                  Emaj7/G#                  F#m7                      B                                          E
And I will never be              set free as long     as there’s a ghost that you can’t see


E                                                               Dmaj9
.        If I could read your mind, love,              what a tale your thoughts would tell
E                                                       Dmaj9
.       Just like a paperback novel,             the kind that drugstore’s sell
E                                                E7                                  A                                B                              C#m
.       When you reach the part      where the heart  –  aches come, the hero would be me
A                            E
But heroes often fail,
.        A                                 Emaj7/G#               F#m7                                    B                                    E
And you won’t read that book          again be   –        cause the ending’s just too hard to take


E                          E7                      A                               B                                                     C#m
.         I’d walk away      lik a mo – vie star who gets burned in a three-way script
A                                 E
Enter number two
.    A                        Emaj7/G#                        F#m7               B/D#                                 C#m
A movie queen to play            the scene of bringin’ all the good things out in me
.              A                              E
But for now, love, let’s be real
.  A                                   Emaj7/G#                            F#m7                  B
I never thought I could act         this way and I’ve got to say that I just don’t get it
A                                        Emaj7/G#                                   F#m7                          B/D#                             E
.       I don’t know where we           went wrong, but the feeling’s gone and I just can’t get it back


E                                                                 Dmaj9
.       If you could read my mind, love,              what a tale my thoughts could tell
E                                                       Dmaj9
.       Just like an old time movie              ’bout a ghost from a wishin’ well
E                                   E7                    A                                B                                     C#m
.       In a castle dark,       or a fortr   –   ess strong with chains upon my feet
A                              E
But stories always end
A                        Emaj7/G#                             F#m7                        B/D#                                     C#m
If you read bet    –     ween the lines, you’ll know that I’m just tryin’ to understand the
.        A                           E
The feelings that you lack
.   A                                  Emaj7/G#                           F#m7                  B
I never thought I could feel         this way and I’ve got to say that I just don’t get it
A                                          Emaj7/G#                                  F#m7                        B/D#                             E
.       I don’t know where we           went wrong, but the feeling’s gone and I just can’t get it back
