If you could read my mind, love,
Just like an old time movie,
In a castle dark or a fortress strong,
You know that ghost is me.
As long as I'm a ghost that you can't see.
If I could read your mind, love,
Just like a paperback novel,
When you reached the part where the heartaches come,
But heroes often fail,
Because the ending's just too hard to take!
I'd walk away like a movie star
Enter number two,
Of bringing all the good things out in me.
I never thought I could act this way
I don't know where we went wrong,
And I just can't get it back.
If you could read my mind, love,
Just like an old time movie,
In a castle dark or a fortress strong.
But stories always end,
You'll know that I'm just tryin' to understand
I never thought I could feel this way
I don't know where we went wrong,
And I just can't get it back!
