Brenda K. Starr – If You Could Read My Mind lyrics

Verse 1:
My mother and father never talked too much
About their feelings for each other
Father was the strong and silent type
Still I knew he really loved her

Baby in the place where I grew up
Tender words were rarely spoken
You see I never learned the way to reach out and say
To bring all my the open

I know you wanna know what's in my heart
I know you need to hear it from my lips
Wish you could only feel the love I'm holding inside
Wish you could see the joy I'm feeling

If you could read my mind
One look and you would find
I love you more than words could say anyway
You know if you could only touch my soul
If you could only touch my soul

If you could reach inside
Where there's no place to hide
You'd see my love light shining through just for you
It's true if you could only read my mind

Verse 2:
Just like a prisoner who is bound and chained
Like a flower outside is taken
I am unable to communicate
The almost come few awaken

I know it's hard for you to understand
I know you need to hear the words of love
Wish you could only see the love I'm holding inside
Wish you could see the joy I'm feeling

[Repeat chorus]
