If You Could Read My Mind



(G)  (Gadd9)  (G)  (Gadd9)

(G) If you could (Gadd9) read my mind love
(Dm6/F) What a tale my thoughts could tell
(G) Just like an (Gadd9) old time movie
(Dm6/F) 'Bout a ghost from a wishing well
(G) In a castle (Gadd9) 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/B) be set free
As (Am7) long as I'm a (D) ghost that you can't (G) see (Gadd9)

If I could read your mind love, what a tale your thoughts could tell
Just like a paperback novel, the kind the drugstores sell
When you reach the part where the heartache 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

(G) I'd walk a(Gadd9)way 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/B) 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/B) 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/B) we went wrong but the (Am7) feeling's gone
And I (D) just can't get it (G) back (Gadd9) (G) (Gadd9)

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
But stories always end
And if you read between the lines you'll know that I'm just trying to understand
The feelings 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 feeling's gone and I just can't get it back
