If You Could Read My Mind--Gordon Lightfoot

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 wishin' 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 could tell

 

Just like a paperback novel

 

The kind that drugstores sell

 

When you reach 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 number two

A movie queen 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 ACT 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's 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 wishin' well

 

In a castle dark or a fortress strong

 

With chains upon my feet

 

But stories always end

 

And if you read between the lines

You'll 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 don't get it

 

I don't know where we went wrong

But the feelin's gone

 

And I just can't get it back
