I can read your mind

Sunday afternoon groovin’ with The Alan Parsons Project.

Don't think sorry's easily said
Don't try turning tables instead
You've taken lots of chances before
But I'm not gonna give anymore
Don't ask me
That's how it goes
Cause part of me knows what you’re thinking.

Don't say words you’re gonna regret
Don't let the fire rush to your head
I’ve heard the accusation before
And I ain't gonna take any more
Believe me
The sun in your eyes
Made some of the lies worth believing.

I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind.
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind.
And I don’t need to see any more
To know that
I can read your mind, I can read your mind.

Don’t leave false illusions behind
Don’t cry I ain’t changing my mind
So find another fool like before
Cause I ain’t gonna live anymore believing
Some of the lies, while all of the signs are deceiving.

Number 3 on the US Billboard charts in October, 1982, 
30 years ago this Fall. Classic.
