Viola Wills – If You Could Read My Mind lyrics

If only I could your mind
If only I could your mind love
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 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't see
(If only)
If I could read your mind love, what a tale your thoughts could tell
Just like a paperback novel, the kind the drugstores sell
And when you reached the part where the heartaches come, the heroin would be me
But heroins often fail
And you won't read that book again because the ending's just too hard to take
(If only I could your mind love)
(If only I could your mind love)
I'd walk away like a movie star who gets burned in a three way script
And enter number two
A movie king 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 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

Ooh baby
(If only, if only you could my mind love)
(If only, if only I could your mind love)
Ooh baby, you see
I'd walk away like a movie star who gets burned in a three way script
And enter number two
A movie king to play the scene of bringing all the good things out in me
But now, let's be real
I never thought I could feel this way and I've got to say, 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 only, if only, if only I could your mind love)
(If only, if only, if only I could your mind love) If I could red your mnd
(If only, if only, if only I could your mind love) Ooh, what a tale your thoughts could tell
(If only, if only, if only I could your mind love) Come on baby, come on baby, won't you let me read your mind
(If only, if only, if only I could your mind love) Wanna read, read your mind
(If only, if only, if only I could your mind love)

    The song "If You Could Read My Mind" Haven't you ever been in love with someone and one day the love is gone and no matter what you do you just can't get the feeling back? At the time you're in love with the person, you think it will never end, then when it ends you're very heartbroken and think you'll never find love again... This is not true, because God will send another to you soon.

    This is a Gordon Lightfoot remake, a fast disco beat. It came out in the early '80s and they played it the clubs in Houston. A friend of mine sang it once in the car and sounded great, he sang for company in Houston. Well, when I moved back to Austin, my other friend was a DJ and he would play that song for me and announce it over the speaker that "This song goes out to my best friend, John" I will never forget those two friends or the song. Brings back a lot of good memories.
