[G]If you could read my mind love, [Dm6/F]what a tale my thoughts could tell
[G]Just like an old time movie '[Dm6/F]bout a ghost from a wishin' well
[G]In a castle [G7]dark or a [C]fortress strong with [D]chains upon my feet[Em]
C G [Fill #2]
You know that ghost is me
And [C]I will never [G/B]be set free as [Am7]long as I'm a [D]ghost that you can't [G]see
[Riff #1] G
[G]If I could read your mind love, [Dm6/F]what a tale your thoughts could tell
[G]Just like a paperback novel [Dm6/F]the kind that drugstores sell
[G]When you reach the [G7]part where the [C]heartaches come the [D]hero would be [Em]me
C G [Fill #2]
But heroes often fail
And [C]you won't read that [G/B]book again [Am7]because the ending's [D]just too hard to [G]take
[Fill #3] G Dm6/F G Dm6/F [Fill #3]
[G]I'd walk [G7]away like a [C]movie star who gets [D]burned in a three way [Em]script
C G [Fill #2]
Enter number two
A [C]movie queen to [G/B]play the scene of [Am7]bringing all the [D]good things out in [Em]me
C G [Fill #2]
But for now love, let's be real
I [C]never thought I could [G/B]act this way and I've [Am7]got to say that I [D]just don't get it
I [C]don't know where [G/B]we went wrong but the [Am7]feelin's gone and I [D]just can't get it[G] back
G (Riff #1)
[G]If you could read my mind love, [Dm6/F]what a tale my thoughts could tell
[G]Just like an old time movie '[Dm6/F]bout a ghost from a wishin' well
[G]In a castle [G7]dark or a [C]fortress strong with [D]chains upon my [Em]feet
C G [Fill #2]
But stories always end
And [C]if you read [G/B]between the lines you'll [Am7]know that I'm just [D]tryin' to under[Em]stand
C G [Fill #2]
The feelin's that you lack
I [C]never thought I could [G/B]feel this way and I've [Am7]got to say that I [D]just don't get it
[C]I don't know where [G/B]we went wrong but the [Am7]feelin's gone And I [D]just can't get it [G]back
Ending:
G Dm6/F (rit.) G
