Masquerade - Lyrics

Pretend you're happy and you'll be that way
At least that's what I've heard some people say
The world's a stage and we're all part of the play
But when I played my card
I gambled with my heart
And when I lost and found that we would have to part
I fell apart like clay

And I'm afraid
The masquerade
Has ended

You played the part of the Lady Fair
You left to go was more than I could bear
I wore the mask of the man who didn't care
And though I acted well
Still any fool could tell
That I was so in love with you and when I fell
You dropped a curtain there

And I'm afraid
The masquerade
Has ended

And though I acted well
Still any fool could tell
That I was so in love with you and when I fell
You dropped a curtain there

And I'm afraid
The masquerade
Has ended

And I'm afraid
The masquerade
Has ended
