Mindreader

Album: You're Welcome (2020)
  • Some call it powers of the mind
    Bending thoughts through space and time
    Reading everyone like that old book you've read a thousand times
    Heard about it when I was young
    Finishing sentences on tips of tongues
    Sixth senses got you seeing all these things I haven't done
    We're not the only ones

    You're laughing like I'm supposed to know
    What you're thinking but I don't
    I know that this never comes easy
    Not much that matters that won't
    You're laughing like I'm supposed to know
    What you're thinking but I don't
    I know that this never comes easy
    But I'll never be your mind reader

    I could head to old Japan
    On a mountain with some ancient man
    Searching for some wisdom that I still won't understand
    Tell me what'll it take?
    Never even knew you felt that way
    Sitting here farther apart than Orlando to L.A.
    Delayed at the gate

    You're laughing like I'm supposed to know
    What you're thinking but I don't
    I know that this never comes easy
    Not much that matters that won't
    You're laughing like I'm supposed to know
    What you're thinking but I don't
    I know that this never comes easy
    But I'll never be your mind reader

    Mind, mind, mind reader
    Mind, mind, mind reader
    (I can't tell you what I don't know)
    Mind, mind, mind reader
    Mind, mind, mind reader
    (I can't tell you what I don't know)
    Mind, mind, mind reader

    You're laughing like I'm supposed to know
    What you're thinking but I don't
    I know that this never comes easy
    Not much that matters that won't
    You're laughing like I'm supposed to know
    What you're thinking but I don't
    I know that this never comes easy
    But I'll never be your mind reader

    I'll never be your mind reader
    I'll never be your mind reader
    I'll never be your mind reader
    I'll never be your mind reader Writer/s: Jeremy McKinnon, Mike Green
