Gordon Lightfoot

"If You Could Read My Mind"

[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
You know that ghost ain't me

[Verse 2]
If I could read your mind, Love
What a tale your thoughts could tell
Just like a paperback novel
The kind the old drugstore sells
And when you reach the part where the heartaches come
And the hero would be me
Aw, but heroes often fail
But you won’t read that book again
Because the ending's just too hard to take

[Verse 3]
And 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 knew I'd feel
And I've got to say that I just don't get it
I don't know when we went wrong
But the feeling's gone and I just can't get it back

[Verse 4]
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
Or 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 tryin’ to understand
The feeling that you left
And I never thought I'd 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

[Outro]
If you could read my mind, Love
