(Swing Out Sister)
A thousand words can hide
Behind averted eyes
In a web of lies
Forbidden thoughts you keep
Awake you when you sleep
The truth is blind
To your cold deceit
Turning your face away from a truth you'll never
Behind this masquerade
Turning your back says much more than words
Could ever hide
Behind this masquerade
You've gone too far
To stop hiding behind this masquerade
A force of evil reigns
As silence stakes it's claim
As a grieved heart prays
When innocence is lost
Your conscience pays the cost
No sacrifice
Will bring back the past
Playing for time you'll find tomorrow never
Behind this masquerade
Living a lie you'll soon find what you've been
Running from
Behind this masquerade
You've gone too far
To stop hiding behind this masquerade
You've gone too far
To stop living behind this masquerade
Baba dub ba dub baba dub ba etc...
