"Can You Read My Mind [From Superman]" as written by John T. Williams and Leslie Bricusse....
Can you read my mind?
Do you know what it is you do to me?
Don't know who you are
Just a friend from another star.

Here I am, like a kid at the school
Holding hands with a god or a fool
Will you look at me, quivering,
Like a little girl, shivering,
You can see right through me.

Can you read my mind?
Can you picture the things I'm thinking of?
Wondering why you are
All the wonderful things you are.
You can fly, you belong to the sky
You and I could belong to each other.

If you need a friend,
I'm the one to fly too
If you need, to be loved
Here I am,
Read my mind!

    General Commentgreat piece of work regardless of who wrote it or who
    sings it - this song was the theme for "Superman" the
    movie, written by John Williams, who authored all the
    Star Wars music - the magic here is that he's describing
    Lois lane and her adoration/fixation for Superman - but
    really, it fully describes what it's like to be yearning for
    love -

    General CommentI think they put a lot of religious stuff in this song.

    From what I've read, reviewers say that Lois Lane in 1 and 2 was very selfish and self-absorbed.

    This song is really in awe. This guy can fly and see through things, and do so much ... it occurs to Lois that maybe he can read her mind.

    What they did with this movie is say that Lois was too shallow to go for Clark, she wants the glorious Superman. And maybe also, she's hoping he can read her mind because she's too shy to say exactly what she's thinking.

    The movie's interesting, their chemistry is interesting, but the song is a bit better all-around than their chemistry and Lois' characterization in particular. Or maybe the reviews I read were wrong.
