G            Gadd9
If you could read my mind love
[ch]Dm/F[/ch]            [ch]Dm9/F[/ch]
What a tale my thoughts could tell
G            Gadd9
Just like an old time movie
[ch]Dm/F[/ch]                  [ch]Dm9/F[/ch]
'bout a ghost from a wishin' well
G           G7        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
   A7sus         D9                    G      Gadd9
As long as I'm a ghost that you can't see

--------------
G          Gadd9
If I could read your mind love
[ch]Dm/F[/ch]              [ch]Dm9/F[/ch]
What a tale your thoughts could tell
G           Gadd9
Just like a paperback novel
[ch]Dm/F[/ch]            [ch]Dm9/F[/ch] 
The kind that drugstores sell
G                  G7                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
  A7sus              D9               (G    Gadd9 [ch]Dm/F[/ch] x 2)
Because the ending's just too hard to take

Interlude: G   Gadd9  [ch]Dm/F[/ch]    [ch]Dm9/F[/ch]

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           D9                   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 
         A7sus             D9
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               D9                 (G  Gadd9 x2) 
But the feeling's gone and I just canít get it back

G            Gadd9
If you could read my mind love
[ch]Dm/F[/ch]            [ch]Dm9/F[/ch]
What a tale my thoughts could tell
G            Gadd9
Just like an old time movie
[ch]Dm/F[/ch]                [ch]Dm9/F[/ch]
'bout a ghost from a wishin' well
G           G7        C
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
     D              Em          C              G
With chains upon my feet    But stories always end
    C             G/B
And if you read between the lines
       A7sus              D9              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
         A7sus             D9
And I've got to say that I just don't get it
C                  G/B
I don't know where we went wrong
        A7sus
But the feeling's gone
      D9                 G    Gadd9    [ch]Dm/F[/ch]  [ch]Dm9/F[/ch]   G
And I just can't get it back
