The Lyrics

To the people who like to nit-pick. (See the comments for my parody of Pain From Stools)
If I could read your mind
Then I would find a way
Then I would take back those lyrics that hurt you. Then I'd say

I don't know why I wrote the things I did
I don't know why they said the things they said
Pride's like a knife some people like to slice
Perfection's their weapon you'd better be right

I don't really mean to slight you
I just want to let you know
I wright my songs and why, but baby

If I could read your mind. If I knew what to say
I wouldn't change my lyrics that hurt you, and you'd say
You're name should be in stars
Nobody wrights better than you
Then you'll all love me, love me like you need to do

If I could read your mind

My words don't matter, they were torn apart
Like someone took offense as if I'm not smart
You think that you know more, I tell you I don't care
You gave me material darling, take that, there

I won't tell you that I'm sorry
But I will right to you this song
I have a real sick mind, and ooh...

If I could read your mind. If i knew what to say
I wouldn't change my lyrics that hurt you and you'd say
Your name should be in stars
Nobody wrights better than you
Then you'll love me, love me like you need to do
Oooohhh

If I could read your mind
If I could read your mind
If I could read your mind
Ooh baby

I didn't really mean to slight you
I just want to let you know
I wright my songs and why
Ooohh

If I could read your mind. If I knew what to say
I wouldn't take back those lyrics that hurt you
I should be singing in bars
I wouldn't have fans like you
People would love me, love me
Like you need to do

If I could read your mind (read your mind)
If I knew what to say (what to say)
Then baby, maybe, maybe
I'd say.......
