"If You Could Read My Mind" as written by and Gordon Lightfoot....
If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts would 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

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, yeah

If you could read your mind love
What a tale my thoughts would tell
Just like a paperback novel
The kind that drugstores sell

When you reach the part
Where the heartache comes
The hero would be you
Heroes often fail

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 feeling's gone and I just can't get it back
If you could read my mind

If you could, if you could
If you could, if you could
If you could read my mind
If you could read my mind

If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts would tell
Just like an old time movie
'Bout a ghost from a wishing well

If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts would tell
Just like a paperback novel
The kind that drugstores sell

And when you reach the part
Where the heartache comes
The hero would be you
Heroes often fail

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 feeling's gone
And I just can't get it back

If you could, if you could
If you could read my mind
