[chordsandlyrics][G]If you could read my mind love
[Dm]What a tale my thoughts could tell
[G]Just like an old time movie
[Dm]’Bout a ghost from a wishin’ well
[G]In a castle dark or a [C]fortress strong
With [D]chains upon my [Em]feet
You [C]know that ghost is [G]me
And [C]I will never [G]be set free
[Am7]As long as I’m a [D]ghost that you can’t [G]see


[G]I’d walk away like a [C]movie star
Who gets [D]burned in a three way [Em]script
[C]Enter number [G]two: a [C]movie queen to [G]play the scene
Of [Am7]bringing all the [D]good things out in [Em]me
But for [C]now love, let’s be [G]real


I [C]never thought I could [G]feel this way
And I’ve [Am7]got to say that I [D]just don’t get it
[C]I don’t know where [G]we went wrong
But the [Am7]feelin’s gone and I [D]just can’t get it [G]back


But [C]stories always [G]end
And [C]if you read be[G]tween the lines
You’d [Am7]know that I’m just [D]tryin’ to under[Em]stand
The [C]feelin’s that you [G]lack[/chordsandlyrics]

If I could read your mind love
What a tale your thoughts could tell
Just like a paperback novel
The kind the drugstores sell
Then 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
