    Lyrics

    (g. lightfoot) campbell connelly & co.

    If you could read my mind, love
    What a tale my thoughts would tell
    Just like an old-time movie
    Out 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 I could read your mind, love
    What a tale your thoughts would tell
    Just like a paperback novel
    That kind the drugstores sell
    When you reach the part
    Where the heartache comes
    The hero would be me
    The heroes often fail
    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
    Enter number two
    The movie queen to play the scene
    And bringing all the good things out in me
    But for now, love, let's be real

    Chorus:
    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 would tell
    Just like an old-time movie
    About 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

    Chorus

    If you could read my mind, love...
