[Verse 1]

G            Gadd9
If you could read my mind love
Dm6/F
What a tale my thoughts could tell
G            Gadd9
Just like an old time movie
Dm6/F
'bout a ghost from a wishin' well
G           G9        C
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
     D7/F#          Em
With chains upon my feet
    C                  G
You know that ghost is me
    C            G/B
And I will never be set free
   Am7           D                    G   Gadd9
As long as I'm a ghost that you can't see


[Chorus]

G            Gadd9
If I could read your mind love
Dm6/F
What a tale your thoughts could tell
G            Gadd9
Just like a paperback novel
Dm6/F
The kind that drugstores sell
G                  G9             C
When you reach the part where the heartaches come
    D7/F#         Em
The hero would be me
    C            G
But heroes often fail
    C                   G/B
And you won't read that book again
   Am7               D                G   Gadd9
Because the ending's just too hard to take


[Outro]

G Gadd9 G Gadd9 Dm6/F Dm6/F G Gadd9 G Gadd9 Dm6/F Dm6/F


[Verse 2]

G         G9         C
I'd walk away like a movie star
         D7/F#                 Em
Who gets burned in a three way script
C            G
Enter number two
  C              G/B
A movie queen to play the scene
   Am7              D                  Em
Of bringing all the good things out in me
G                          Gadd9
But for now love, let's be real
  C                     G/B
I never thought I could act this way         
Am7                        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      
        Am7
But the feelin's gone
      D                 G    Gadd9
And I just can't get it back


[Instrumental]

G   Gadd9


[Chorus]

G            Gadd9
If you could read my mind love
Dm6/F
What a tale my thoughts could tell
G            Gadd9
Just like an old time movie
Dm6/F
'bout a ghost from a wishin' well
G           G9        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
       Am7                D              Em
You'll know that I'm just tryin' to understand
    C                 G
The feelin's that you lack
  C                     G/B
I never thought I could feel this way
         Am7               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
        Am7
But the feelin's gone
      D                 G    Gadd9 Dm6/F G
And I just can't get it back
