If You Could Read My Mind Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
If you could read my mind, love
What a tale my thoughts could tell
Just like an old-time movie
About a ghost from a wishing well
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
If I could read your mind, love
What a tale your thoughts could tell
Just like a paperback novel
The kind that drugstores sell
When you reach the part
Where the heartaches come
The hero would be me
The hero often fails
And you won't read that book again
Because the ending's just too hard to take
Verse 4
I'll walk away like a movie star
Who gets burned in a three-way script
Enter number two
A movie queen to play the scene
Are 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, 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
