If you could read my mind love what a tale my thoughts could tell
Just like an old time movie about a ghost from a wishing well
In a cast the dark of a fortress strong with chains upon my feet
You know that ghost is me and I won't ever 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 could tell
Just like a paper back novel the kind the drug stores sell
Then you reached the part where the heartaches come
The hero would be me but 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 burned in a three way script enter No 2
A movie queen to play the scene of bringin' 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've got to say that I just don't get it
I don't know where we went wrong
But the feelin' is gone and I just can't get it back
If you could read my mind love...
But stories always end and If you read between the lines
You'd know that I'm just tryin' to understand the feelin's that you lack
I never thought I could feel this way and I've got to say that I just can't get it back
