If you could read my mind – SONG

IF YOU COULD READ MY MIND

Gordon Lightfoot

If you could read my mind love,
what a ­1)__________ my thoughts could tell.
Just like an old time movie
about a ghost from a wishing well.
In a castle dark or a 2)_________ 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 see.

If I could read your mind love,
what a tale your thoughts could tell.
Just like a 3)__________ novel,
the kind the drugstore sells.
When you reach the part where the 4)__________
come the hero would be me.
Heroes often fail.
And you won’t read that book again
because the ending’s just too hard to take.

I walk away like a movie star
who gets burned in a three way 5)________.
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 6)_________.

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 about a ghost from a wishing well.
In a castle dark or a 7)__________ strong
with chains upon my feet the story always ends.
And if you read between the lines
you’ll know that I’m just trying to understand
the feeling that you left.

I never thought I could feel this way
and I 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.
