Barbra Streisand – If You Could Read My Mind lyrics

I f 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 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 see
If I could read your mind, love
What a tale your thoughts could tell
Just like a paperback novel
That kind the drugstores sell
When you reach the part
Where the heartaches come
The hero would be me
The heroes often fail
And you won't read that book again
Because the ending's just too hard to take
I'd walk away like a movie star
Who gets spurned in a three way script
Ends up number two
The movie queen to play the scene
A bringing all the good things out in me
But for now, love, let's be real
I never thought I could feel this way
And I 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 movies
'Bout a ghost from a wishing well
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet
Stories always end
And if you read between the lines
You know that I'm just trying to understand
The feelings that you lack
I've 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
