Read My Mind Lyrics

On the corner of main street
Just tryin' to keep it in line
You say you wanna move on, and
You say I'm falling behind

Can you read my mind?
Can you read my mind?

I never really gave up on
Breakin' out of this two-star town
I got the green light
I got a little fight
I'm gonna turn this thing around

Can you read my mind?
Can you read my mind?

The good old days, the honest man
The restless heart, the Promised Land
A subtle kiss that no one sees
A broken wrist and a big trapeze

Oh well, I don't mind, you don't mind
Cause I don't shine if you don't shine
Before you go, can you read my mind?

It's funny how you just break down
Waiting on some sign
I pull up to the front of your driveway
With magic soaking my spine

Can you read my mind?
Can you read my mind?

The teenage queen, the loaded gun
The drop dead dream, the Chosen One
A southern drawl, the world unseen
A city wall and a trampoline

Oh well, I don't mind, you don't mind
'Cause I don't shine if you don't shine
Before you jump
Tell me what you find
When you read my mind

Slipping in my faith until I fall
He never returned that call
Woman, open the door, don't let it sting
I wanna breathe that fire again

She said, I don't mind, you don't mind
'Cause I don't shine if you don't shine
Put your back on me
Put your back on me
Put your back on me

The stars are blazing like rebel diamonds cut out of the sun
When you read my mind

1 Thoughts & Meanings

It's about wanting to leave a place. There is a small town and they just want to escape. He wishes she or him, whoever it is, would read his mind and want the same thing. Whenever a person is from a small town, it's hard to break from what's expected and leaving at all. I remember seeing one graffiti that read, "I swear one day I'm gonna leave this town"... I think that pretty much explains it all.
