Gordon Lightfoot – If You Could Read My Mind {HD}
“If You Could Read My Mind” is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot. It reached number one on Canadian music charts and was his first recording to appear on the American music charts, reaching number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in February 1971. Later in the year it reached number 30 in the UK. The song also reached number one for one week on the Billboard Easy Listening chart, and was the first of four Lightfoot releases to reach number one.
This song first appeared on Lightfoot’s 1970 album Sit Down Young Stranger, which was later renamed If You Could Read My Mind following the song’s success.
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.
In 1987 Lightfoot took a lawsuit out against the writer of “The Greatest Love of All”, alleging plagiarism of 24 bars of “If You Could Read My Mind”. Lightfoot has stated that he dropped the lawsuit when he felt it was having a negative effect on the singer Whitney Houston, as the lawsuit was about the writer and not her.
The song is in A major and uses the subtonic chord.

Lyrics:

I’m a heartbreak beat, yeah, all night long
And nobody don’t dance on the edge of the dark
We’ve got the radio on and it feels like love
But it don’t mean a lot and it feels like love and it’s all that we’ve got

There’s a heartbreak beat playin’ all night long
Down on my street
And it feels like love got the radio on
And it’s all that we need
There’s a heartbreak beat
And it feels like love
There’s a heartbreak beat
And it feels like love

Hounds of Love (1985) track 10

Hello, old lady.
I know your face well.
I know it well.

She says,
“Ooh-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na!
I’ll be sitting in your mirror.
Now is the place where the crossroads meet.
Will you look into the future?

“Never, never say goodbye
To my part of your life.
No, no, no, no, no!
Oh, oh, oh,

“Let me live!”
She said.
“C’mon and let me live, girl!”
She said,
“C’mon and let me live, girl!”
(“C’mon and let me live!”)

“This moment in time,”
(She said.)
It doesn’t belong to you,”
(She said,)
It belongs to me,

“And to your little boy and to your little girl,
And the one hand clapping:
Where on your palm is my little line,
When you’re written in mine
As an old memory?
Ooh, na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-

“Never, never say goodbye
To my part of your life.
Oh no, no, no, no, no!
Never, never, never!
Never, never let me go!”

She said,
“C’mon and let me live, girl!’
(“C’mon and let me live!”)
She said,
“C’mon and let me live, girl!”
(“C’mon and let me live!”)

I put this
moment……………………………………….here.
I put this moment…………………….here.
I put this moment–

“Over here!
“Over here!
Can’t you see where memories are kept bright?
Tripping on the water like a laughing girl.
Time in her eyes is spawning past life,
One with the ocean and the woman unfurled,
Holding all the love that waits for you here.
Catch us now for I am your future.
A kiss on the wind and we’ll make the land.
Come over here to where When lingers,
Waiting in this empty world,
Waiting for Then, when the lifespray cools.
For Now does ride in on the curl of the wave,
And you will dance with me in the sunlit pools.
We are of the going water and the gone.
We are of water in the holy land of water
And all that’s to come runs in
With the thrust on the strand.”
