Musings From A Musical Mind

If You Could Read My Mind

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 that 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 knew 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 

   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 knew 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
