If You Could Read My Mind
If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts would tell
Just like an old time movie
'Bout a ghost from a wishin' well
In a castle dark or a fortress strong with chains upon my feet
You know that ghost is me
And I will never be set free
As long as I'm a ghost that you can't see

If I could read your mind love
What a tale your thoughts would tell
Just like a paper-back novel
The kind the drug store sells
When you reach the part
Where the heartaches come the hero would be me
Heroes often fail

You won't read that book again
Because the endings just too hard to take
I walk away like a movie star
Who gets burned in a three-way script
Enter number two
A movie queen to play the scene
Of bringing all the good things out in me
But for now, love let's be real

I never thought I could act this way
I've got to say that I just don't get it
I don't know where we went wrong
But the feelings gone and I just can't get it back

If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts would tell
Just like an old time movie
'Bout a ghost from a wishin' well
In a castle dark
Or a fortress strong with chains upon my feet
Stories have to end
And if you read between the lines
You'll know that I'm just trying to understand
The feelings that you lack

I never thought I could act this way
I've got to say that I just don't get it
I don't know where we went wrong
But the feelings gone and I just can't get it

Never thought I could act this way (Ooh)
I've got to say that I just don't get it (Ooh)
I don't know where we went wrong (Ooh)
But the feelings gone and I just can't get it back (Ooh)
