If You Could Read My Mind

If You Could Read My Mind

Glen Campbell

If you could read my mind, love, what a tale my thoughts could tell
Just like and o-old time mo-ovie '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 won't ever 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 paper back novel, the kind the drug store sells
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 f bringing all the good things out in me
But for now, love, let's be real
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 feelings 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 and o-old time mo-ovie 'bout a ghost from a wishing well
In a castle dark, or a fortress strong, with chains upon my feet
Girl, but stories always end
If you could read between the lines you'd know that I'm just tryin' to understand
The feeling's 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 feelings gone and I just can't get it back
