Can You Read My Mind

Album: Maureen McGovern (1979)
Charted: 52
  • Can you read my mind?
    Do you know what it is you do to me?
    Don't know who you are
    Just a friend from another star.

    Here I am, like a kid at the school
    Holding hands with a god or a fool
    Will you look at me, quivering,
    Like a little girl, shivering,
    You can see right through me.

    Can you read my mind?
    Can you picture the things I'm thinking of?
    Wondering why you are
    All the wonderful things you are.
    You can fly, you belong to the sky
    You and I could belong to each other.

    If you need a friend,
    I'm the one to fly too
    If you need, to be loved
    Here I am,
    Read my mind! Writer/s: JOHN T. WILLIAMS, LESLIE BRICUSSE

  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxIf only they had used the actual song in the movie instead of having just Margot Kidder reading the lyrics during the flight scene. Sounded so incredibly stupid and almost ruined the scene.
  • Rodney from Mountain Home, ArIt should be mentioned the great soundtrack composer John Williams created this beautiful music which he cleverly wove into the Superman main theme. Andy Williams also had success with a recording of this title.
