UK hit 1971 peaked at , 9 weeks on chart The chart UK position did not reflect how much of a timeless classic this song is. If I could read your mind love What a tale your thoughts could tell Just like a paperback novel The kind that drugstores sell When you reach the part where the heartaches come The hero would be me But heroes often fail And you won't read that book again Because the ending's just too hard to take. I'd walk away like a movie star Who gets burned in a three way script Enter number two A movie queen to play the scene Of bringing all the good things out in me But for now love, let's be real I never thought I could act this way And I've got to say that I.

Gordon Lightfoot - Saturday Clothes. If You Could Read My Mind is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot. It reached 1 in the Canadian Singles Chart on commercial release in 1970, and also charted in several other countries on international release in 1971. Lightfoot has cited his divorce for inspiring the lyrics, saying they came to him as he was sitting in a vacant Toronto house one summer. At the request of his daughter, Ingrid, he performs the lyrics with a slight change now: the line I'm just trying to understand. If You Could Read My Mind was not the first track released as a single from this album Lightfoot's recording of Kris Kristofferson's soon-to-be-classic Me and Bobby McGee, the only non-original in this collection, preceded it but barely dented the charts. The entire album is rich in the simple beauty of its folky melodies and personal lyrics. Lightfoot is accompanied here by his regular band of the time, Red Shea on guitar and Rick Haynes on bass.

I was of course going through some emotional trauma leading up to a separation, so that of course manifested itself in that particular song on that particular afternoon, Lightfoot, 71, said by phone from his Toronto home.
