Gordon LightfootIf You Could Read My Mind

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'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 the drugstores sell. When you reach the part where the heartaches come, the hero would be me. Heroes often fail. And 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 script. Enter number two, A movie queen to play the scene Of bringing all the good things out in me, But for now love lets 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 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, The story always ends. If you read between the lines You'll know that I'm just trying to understand The feeling that you LACK. 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.
