The Masquerade Is Over

Your eyes don’t shine like they used to shine
And the thrill is gone when your lips meet mine
I’m afraid the masquerade is over
And so is love, and so is love

Your words don’t mean what they used to mean
They were once inspired, now they’re just routine
I’m afraid the masquerade is over
And so is love, and so is love

I guess I’ll have to play Paliachi
And get myself a clowns disguise
And learn to laugh like Paliachi
With tears in my eyes

You look the same, You’re a lot the same
But my heart says no, no you’re not the same
I’m afraid the masquerade is over
And so is love, and so is love
