G            Gadd9
If you could read my mind love
Dm/F
What a tale my thoughts could tell
G            Gadd9
Just like an old time movie
Dm/F
'bout a ghost from a wishin' well
G           Gadd9     C
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
     D		    Em
With chains upon my feet
    C		       G
You know that ghost is me
    C            G/B
And I will never be set free
   Am7sus        D		       G      Gadd9
As long as I'm a ghost that you can't see

G          Gadd9
If I could read your mind love
Dm/F
What a tale your thoughts could tell
G           Gadd9
Just like a paperback novel
Dm/F
The kind that drugstores sell
G                  Gadd9             C
When you reach the part where the heartaches come
    D		  Em
The hero would be me
    C            G
But heroes often fail
    C                   G/B
And you won't read that book again
  Am7sus             D		      (G    Gadd9 Dm/F x 2)
Because the ending's just too hard to take

G        Gadd9       C
I'd walk away like a movie star
	 D		       Em
Who gets burned in a three-way script
C            G
Enter number two
 
  C              G/B
A movie queen to play the scene
   Am7sus           D  	         Em
Of bringing all the good things out in me
        C                  G
But for now love, let's be real
    C                   G/B
I never thought I could feel this way 
         Am7sus            D
And I've got to say that I just don't get it
C                  G/B
I don't know where we went wrong
        Am7sus               D                 (G  Gadd9 x2) 
But the feeling's gone and I just canít get it back

G            Gadd9
If you could read my mind love
Dm/F
What a tale my thoughts could tell
G            Gadd9
Just like an old time movie
Dm/F
'bout a ghost from a wishin' well
G           Gadd9     C
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
     D		    Em
With chains upon my feet
    C              G
But stories always end
    C             G/B
And if you read between the lines
       Am7sus             D              Em
You'll know that I'm just tryin' to understand
    C                 G
The feelings that you lack
  C                     G/B
I never thought I could feel this way
         Am7sus            D
And I've got to say that I just don't get it
C                  G/B
I don't know where we went wrong
        Am7sus
But the feeling's gone
      D                 G    Gadd9    Dm/F    G
And I just can't get it back
