Lyrics
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 am
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 red 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
And bringing all the good things out in me
But now for love, lets 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 feelings 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 movie
'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 feelings gone and I just can't get it back
