On the corner of Main Street,
just tryin' to keep it in line,
You say you wanna move on and,
you say I'm falling behind;
Can you read my mind? ......
Can you read my mind?

I never really gave up on,
breakin' out of this two-star town,
I got the green light, I got a little fight;
I'm gonna turn this thing around,
Can you read my mind? ......
Can you read my mind?

The good old days, the honest man,
The restless heart, the Promised Land,
A subtle kiss that no one sees,
A broken wrist and a big trapeze.

Oh well, I don't mind, if you don't mind,
'Cause I don't shine, if you don't shine;
Before you go, can you can read my mind?

It's funny how you just break down,
waitin' on some sign,
I pull up to the front of your driveway,
with magic soakin' my spine;
Can you read my mind? ......
Can you read my mind?

The teenage queen, the loaded gun,
The drop-dead dream, the Chosen One;
A Southern drawl, a world unseen,
A city wall and a trampoline.

Oh well, I don't mind, if you don't mind,
'Cause I don't shine, if you don't shine;
Before you go, tell me what you find,
When you read my mind.

Slippin' in my faith until I fall,
You never returned that call;
Woman, open the door, don't let it sting,
I wanna breathe that fire again.

She said, I don't mind, if you don't mind,
'Cause I don't shine, if you don't shine;
Put your back on me, put your back on me;
Put your back on me.

The stars are blazing like
rebel diamonds cut out of the sun,
Can you read my mind? ......
Can you read my mind?
