(Verse 1)
I'd like to take this time, just to apologize,
The way you see me now, and what I am inside,
Really your character, there wasn't in it for us,
I tried to keep it up.

(Hook 1)
When I looked in your eyes, tonight,
I saw your heart crystal clear,
And when you look back in mine,
The truth seemed to disappear.

(Chorus)
Because it was all, it was all,
It was all a masquerade,
Because it was all, it was all,
It was all a masquerade,
Masquerade x8

(Verse 2)
I said I loved you first
Well love is just a word
Said it so many times
That it became a blur,
You're not the only one,
I'm sure that hearing it hurts,
Of all the pain you had,
I'm the worst.

(Hook 2)
In your eyes tonight,
I saw your heart crystal clear,
And when you looked back in mine,
All the lies re-appeared.

(Chorus)
Because it was all, it was all,
It was all a masquerade,
Because it was all, it was all,
It was all a masquerade,
Masquerade x8

(Bridge)
Now I can't believe you're telling me,
That you can move on easily,
I thought you really cared for me,
I was wrong, I was wrong,
I should've known my fun was bitter sweet,
And saw the possibilites of me playing you why you playing me,
I was wrong, I was wrong,

So I guess it was all, it was all,
It was all a masquerade.

I guess it was all, it was all,
It was all a masquerade.

Masquerade x8

A masquerade
