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 upon my feet
You know that ghost is me
And I will never be set free
As long as Im a ghost that you cant see

If I could read your mind, love
What a tale your thoughts could tell
Just like a paperback novel
The kind that drugstores sell

When you reach the part
Where the heartaches come
The hero would be me but heroes often fail
And you wont read that book again
Because the endings just too hard to take

Id 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, lets be real
I never thought I could feel this way
And Ive got to say that I just dont get it
I dont know where we went wrong
But the feelings gone and I just cant 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 upon my feet
Stories always end
And if you read between the lines
Youll know that Im just tryin to understand
The feelins that you lack

I never thought I could feel this way
And Ive got to say that I just dont get it
I dont know where we went wrong
But the feelins gone and I just cant get it back
