Labyrinth – Behind The Mask lyrics

No, please don't cry
Don't waste all your tears on this.
'cause that is life,
A destiny tough to change.

The only way to escape
From reality lives in our dreams...

No, little girl
I'm sorry but that's not a dream
Don't start beggin' me:
I'm not the reason of your tears

What do you think of me?
I'm not as cruel as you may think...

Now look at me,
Tell me now: what do you see?
Oh, behind the mask
There's a man who used to cry.

Now come with me
It's too late, no turning back!
Few days and a king
Is going to pretend your hand...

And I'll take care of you:
They paid for this. Don't blame me.

Now look at me,
Tell me now: what do you see?
Oh, behind the mask
There's a man who used to cry.
