Chords:
Transpose:
intro   E



(Verse 1)

EIf you could read my mind, love
DWhat a tale my thoughts could tell
EJust like an old time movie
D'bout a ghost from a wishing-well
E AIn a castle dark or a fortress strong
B C#mWith chains around my feet
A EYou know that ghost is me
A C#mAnd I will never be set free
F#m7 B EAs long as there's a ghost that you can't see
(Verse 2)
EIf I could read your mind, love
DWhat a tale your thoughts would tell
EJust like a paperback novel
DThe kind that drugstores sell
E AWhen you reach the part where the heartaches come
B C#mThe hero would be me
A EBut heroes often fail
E C#mAnd you won't read that book again
F#m7 B EBecause the ending's just too hard to take
(Middle section) E D E D
E AI'd walk away like a movie star
C#m AWho gets burned in a three way script
B EEnter number two
A C#mA movie queen to play the scene
F#m7 B EOf bringing all the good things out in me
A EBut for now, love, let's be real
A C#mI never thought I could act this way
F#m7 BAnd I've got to say that I just don't get it
A C#mI don't know where we went wrong
F#m7But the feeling's gone
B EAnd I just can't get it back
E E (Verse 3...)
EIf you could read my mind, love,
DWhat a tale my thoughts could tell
EJust like an old time movie
D'bout a ghost from a wishing-well
E AIn a castle dark or a fortress strong
B C#mWith chains from my feet
A EThe stories always end
A C#mAnd if you read between the lines
F#m7 B EYou’ll know that I’m just trying to understand
A AThe feelings that you lack
A C#mI never thought I could feel this way
F#m7 BAnd I've got to say that I just don't get it
A C#mI don't know where we went wrong
F#m7But the feeling's gone
BAnd I just can't get it back
E D end on E!
