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 around my feet
You know that ghost is me and I won't ever be set free
As long as I'm a ghost 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 the drugstore sells
When you reach the part where the heartaches come
The hero would be me but heroes often fail
You won't read that book again
Because the ending's just too hard to take

I walk away like a movie star who gets burned in a three way street
Enter number two, a movie queen to play the scene
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 feeling's gone and we 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 around my feet, the story always ends

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 we just can't get it back
