If I Could Read Your Mind

	  G                  D add A                 Dm6/F 
If you could read my mind love, what a tale my thoughts could tell. 
G                D add A            Dm6/F 
Just like an old time movie, 'bout a ghost from a wishing well. 
G                               C                          D                     Em   C                               G 
In a castle dark, or a fortress strong, with chains upon my feet, you know that ghost is me,  
        C                 G/B                Am7sus4      D                            G       G add A 
And I won't never be set free, as long as Im a ghost, that you can't see. 
 
 
 G            D add A                  Dm6/F 
If I could read your mind love, what a tale your thought could tell. 
G              D add A              Dm6/F 
Just like a paperback novel, the kind the drug stores sell. 
G                                                  C                               D                  Em   C                      G 
When you reach the part, where the heartaches come, the hero would be me,  but heros, often fail, 
        C                         G/B             Am7sus4                 D                     G       G add A 
And you won't read that book again, because the endings just too hard to take! 
 
G   G (add A)    Dm6/F    G   Dm6/F    G 
 
 
G                             C                            D                              Em      C                 G 
I'd walk away, like a movie star, who gets burned in a three way script, into, number two, 
    C                    G/B                    Am7sus4          D                        Em            C                       G 
A movie queen to play the scene of bringing all the good things out in me, but for now love, lets be real; 
   C                             G/B                         Am7sus4           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                            Am7sus4              D                    G 
I don't know where we went wrong but the feelin's gone and I just can't get it back.  
 
 
G                  D add A                 Dm6/F 
If you could read my mind love, what a tale my thoughts could tell. 
G                D add A             Dm6/F 
Just like an old time movie, 'bout a ghost from a wishing well. 
G                              C                           D                     Em        C                   G 
In a castle dark, or a fortress strong, with chains upon my feet, the stories always end. 
       C              G/B                              Am7sus4             D                   Em          C                     G 
And if you read between the lines, you'd know that Im just tryin' to understand, the feelin's that you lack. 
 
   C                             G/B                          Am7sus4           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                            Am7sus4               D                    G 
I don't know where we went wrong but the feelin's gone and I just can't get it back! 
 
G   G (add A)    Dm6/F    G   Dm6/F    G
