IF YOU COULD READ MY MIND – GORDON LIGHTFOOT

 

IF YOU COULD READ MY MIND

GORDON LIGHTFOOT

 

If you could read my mind, love,

What a tale my ___________ could tell.

Just like an old time movie,

‘Bout a ghost from a wishing ___________.

In a castle dark or a fortress strong,

With ___________ upon my feet.

You know that ghost is me.

And I will never be set ___________

As long as I’m a ghost you can’t see.

 

If I could read your mind, love,

What a tale your ___________ could tell.

Just like a paperback novel,

The kind the ___________ sell.

Then you reached the part where the heartaches come,

The hero would be me.

But heroes often ___________,

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 ___________

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 ___________,

But the feeling’s gone

And I just can’t get it back.

 

If you could read my mind, love,

What a tale my ___________ could tell.

Just like an old time movie,

‘Bout a ghost from a wishing ___________.

In a castle dark or a fortress strong.

With ___________ upon my feet.

But stories always end,

And if you read between the ___________,

You’d know that I’m just tryin’ to understand

The feelings 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 ___________,

But the feelin’s gone

And I just can’t get it back!

 

If You Could Read My Mind,

Gordon Lightfoot

 

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 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 the drugstores sell.

Then you reached 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 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.

 

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.

But stories always end,

And if you read between the lines,

You’d know that I’m just tryin’ to understand

The feelin’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 feelin’s gone

And I just can’t get it back!
