If You Could Read My Mind

If you could read my mind love,
What a tale my thoughts could tell.

About a ghost from a wishing well.

a guy who deserves to be remembered. listen to his music and you'll be surprised. check him out on you tube or somewhere. really listen. he was one of those guys who was highly thought of by other musicians, those who really knew who was good. folky and unique. i really liked him. he had a couple of hits.

What if I told you I can't read your mind.. But I can feel your soul so some of my actions and unexplained words aren't always intentional. . They are coming from you.. I feel like I'm so connected to someone I can prove it.. But I would only tell them.. So I guess those feelings are gonna be kept quiet until I can make them our feelings.. And maybe I don't have to at all. Maybe you already know.

GL is a classic song writer /performer. He has his own genre.
