Are we really happy
With this lonely game we play?
Looking for words to say

Searching but not finding
Understanding anywhere
We're lost in this masquerade

Both afraid to say
We're just to far away
From being close together
From the start

We tried to talk it over
But the words got in the way
We're lost inside
This lonely game we play

Thoughts of weeping
Disappear every time
I see your eyes
No matter how hard I try

To understand the reasons
That we carry on this way
We're lost in a masquerade

We could just start over
But it's oh so, hard to do
When you're lost in a masquerade

    Well, so many thoughts and possible meanings. First of all. When your in love with someone who is just the opposite of you, you could get caught in a masquerade kinda of thinking. But more than not this song is (to me) written about two lovers who just never quite connected spiritually. So it goes and goes until your a little crazy.
