A
If you could read my mind love
G
What a tale my thoughts could tell
A
Just like an old time movie
G
'bout a ghost from a wishin' well
A           A7        D
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
     E               F#m
With chains upon my feet
    D                  A
You know that ghost is me
    D            A
And I will never be set free
   Bm7           E                    A
As long as I m a ghost that you can t see


A
If I could read your mind love
G
What a tale your thoughts could tell
A
Just like a paperback novel
G
The kind that drugstores sell
A                  A7             D
When you reach the part where the heartaches come
    E              F#m
The hero would be me
    D            A
But heroes often fail
    D                   A
And you won't read that book again
   Bm7               E                  A
Because the ending's just too hard to take

Interlude: A G A G

A         A7         D
I d walk away like a movie star
         E                     F#m
Who gets burned in a three way script
D            A
Enter number two
  D              A
A movie queen to play the scene
   Bm7              E                  A
Of bringing all the good things out in me
D                          A
But for now love, let's be real
  D                     A
I never thought I could act this way
Bm7                        E
And I've got to say that I just don't get it
D                  A
I don't know where we went wrong
        Bm7
But the feelin's gone
      E                 A
And I just can't get it back


A
If you could read my mind love
G
What a tale my thoughts could tell
A
Just like an old time movie
G
'bout a ghost from a wishin' well
A           A7        D
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
     E              F#m
With chains upon my feet
    D              A
But stories always end
    D             A
And if you read between the lines
       Bm7                E              A
You'll know that I'm just tryin' to understand
    D                 A
The feelin's that you lack
  D                     A
I never thought I could feel this way
         Bm7               E
And I've got to say that I just don't get it
D                  A
I don't know where we went wrong
        Bm7
But the feelin's gone
      E                 A
And I just can't get it back
