If I Could Have Read Your Mind feat. Paul Dempsey / Album Introspective / April 15 2014
Lyrics by Paul Dempsey

(v1)
If I could have read your mind
I’d have known why you walked out on me
But no, instead I’m left behind
Wondering just why it had to be

(v2)
The painted smile on your face
Let me think there were feelings inside
But I guess there was never a trace
It was just the make up you used to hide

(chorus)
Now I seek shelter
Hidden in the shadow of my yesterdays
I try to hold it tightly
It’s a comfort I sometimes find
But just like you …. it never stays
If only I could have read your mind

(v3)
For you it was like playing a game
For me it was my life, I was all in
Sitting in the ruins of what it became
The misery reminds me I didn’t win

(v4)
The painted smile on your face
Let me think there were feelings inside
But I guess there was never a trace
It was just the make up you used to hide

(bridge)
But really I hope my yesterdays fade
And take the memory of you
Coz I grow tired of reading my mind
And seeing you passing through ….. passing through

(chorus)
Now I seek shelter
Hidden in the shadow of my yesterdays
I try to hold it tightly
It’s a comfort I sometimes find
But just like you …. it never stays
If only I could have read your mind
If only I could have have read your mind
Read your mind
