Hi. This artist is incredible and surprisingly not yet featured here.
So I am collecting some tabs for my own playing.

Tuning: Standard with the B raised to C for convenience
Capo: 1st fret

I don't know the proper names for these chords so I will use the basic bass note for reference over the lyrics
The lyrics, speaking of which, I transcribed myself and are therefore not all necessarily correct.

Don't forget the tuning!

C                                 Bb
  If you could read my mind, love, what a tale my thoughts could tell
C                            Bb
  Just like an old-time movie  'bout a ghost from a wishing well
C*                      F                    G              Am
  In a castle dark or a fortress strong with chains upon my feet
    G                  C
You know that ghost is me
    F               Em          Dm            (G)           C
And I will never be set free as long as I'm a ghost you can see


C
  If I could read your mind, love, what a tale your thoughts could tell

Just like a paperback novel, the kind the drugstores sell


C*                                  F
  When you reach the part where the heartaches come
    G               Am
The hero will be me
    G              C
But heros often fail
    F                  Em           Dm                G                C
And you wont read that book again because the endings just too hard to take


C*                   F                   G                          Am
  I walk away like a movie star who gets burned in through a script
G               C   F              Em                Dm               G                  Am
Enter number two: a movie queen to play the scene of bringing all the good things out in me
        G                   C
but for now, love, let's be real
  F                     Em                 Dm                G
I never thought i could act this way and I got to say that I just don't get it
  F                Em                     Dm                  G                 C
I don't know where we wen't wrong but the feelings gone and I just can't get it back


C                                 Bb
  If you could read my mind, love, what a tale my thoughts could tell
C                            Bb
  Just like an old-time movie  'bout a ghost from a wishing well
C*                      F                    G              Am
  In a castle dark or a fortress strong with chains upon my feet
    G            C
The story always ends
    F              Em                    Dm                  G            Am
And If you read between the lines you'll know that I'm just trying to understand
    G                C
The feeling that you left
  F                          Em                     Dm                G
I never thought that I could feel this way and I've got to say that I just dont get it
F                    Em                     Dm                  G                 C
  I don't know where we wen't wrong but the feelings gone and I just can't get it back
