If you could read my mind, love, What a tale my thoughts could tell. Just like an old time movie, 'Bout a ghost from a wishing well. In a castle dark or a fortress strong, With chains upon my feet. You know that ghost is me. And I will never be set free As long as I'm a ghost that you can't see.
While I'm far away from you, my baby I know it's hard for you, my baby Because it's hard for me, my baby And the darkest hour is just before dawn Each night before you go to bed, my baby Whisper a little prayer for me my baby And tell all the stars above This is dedicated to the one I love... "Life" can never be exactly like we want it to be I could be satisfied knowing you love me But there's one thing I want you to do especially for me And it's something that everybody needs.
