It was a masquerade at Mardi Gras
That was the only trip that I recall
Everytime I turned around at all
There was you

Some days are easier said than done
Always expecting something's wrong
I'd rather live alone than drag this on

Take your time- please lay your hands on me
Don't wanna be alone, oh no
A mask behind the face and then you're gone
Oh, yeah- comes a time when you're better off alone
You're on your own

I've got a kaleidoscope of memories
Visions of you locked up inside of me
Can't you see

We once collided like a broken wheel
So undecided what was real
Maybe a crash somehow has s** appeal
Whatever turns you on

Take your time- please lay your hands on me
Don't wanna be alone, oh no
A mask behind a face and then you're gone
Oh yeah- comes a time when you're better off alone

One down- one to go
Oh no, playin' in a carnival
Your time is gone

One down- one to go
Oh no, playin' in a carnival
You're all alone

One down- one to go
Oh no, you're on your own
