G Dm6/F If you could read my mind love, what a tale my thoughts could tell G Dm6/F Just like an old time movie 'bout a ghost from a wishin' well G G7 C D Em In a castle dark or a fortress strong with chains upon my feet C G [Fill #2] You know that ghost is me C G/B Am7 D G And I will never be set free as long as I'm a ghost that you can't see [Riff #1] G G Dm6/F If I could read your mind love, what a tale your thoughts could tell G Dm6/F Just like a paperback novel the kind that drugstores sell G G7 C D Em When you reach the part where the heartaches come the hero would be me C G [Fill #2] But heroes often fail C G/B Am7 D G And you won't read that book again because the ending's just too hard to take [Fill #3] G Dm6/F G Dm6/F [Fill #3] G G7 C D Em I'd walk away like a movie star who gets burned in a three way script C G [Fill #2] Enter number two C G/B Am7 D Em A movie queen to play the scene of bringing all the good things out in me C G [Fill #2] But for now love, let's be real C G/B Am7 D I never thought I could act this way and I've got to say that I just don't get it C G/B Am7 D G I don't know where we went wrong but the feelin's gone and I just can't get it back G (Riff #1) G Dm6/F If you could read my mind love, what a tale my thoughts could tell G Dm6/F Just like an old time movie 'bout a ghost from a wishin' well G G7 C D Em In a castle dark or a fortress strong with chains upon my feet C G [Fill #2] But stories always end C G/B Am7 D Em And if you read between the lines you'll know that I'm just tryin' to understand C G [Fill #2] The feelin's that you lack C G/B Am7 D I never thought I could feel this way and I've got to say that I just don't get it C G/B Am7 D G I don't know where we went wrong but the feelin's gone And I just can't get it back
