(Verse 1)
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 wishing-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 you can't see

(Verse 2)
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
And heroes often fail
And you won't read that book again
Because the ending's just too hard to take

(Middle section)
I'd walk away like a movie star
Who gets burned in a three way script
And 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 thought I could act 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

(Verse 3...ends with the music in middle section)
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 wishing-well
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet
The story always ends
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
