Henry Jamison If You Could Read My Mind Lyrics

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 wishin’ 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

But heroes often fail

And you won’t read that book again

Because the ending’s just too hard to take

I’d 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, 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 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 wishin’ well

In a castle dark or a fortress strong

With chains upon my feet

But stories always end

And if you read between the lines

You’ll know that I’m just tryin’ to understand

The feelings that you lack

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 I just can’t get it back
