Are we really happy with this lonely game we play
Looking for words to say
Searching but not finding understanding anyway
We're lost in this masquerade

  Both afraid to say we're just too 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 leaving disappear every time I see your eyes
No matter how hard I try
To understand the reason 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
