the love that's died but is trying to live a lie. So true then, still true now!
My blue horizon is turning grey And my dreams are drifting away Your eyes don't shine like they used to shine And the thrill is gone when your lips meet mine I'm afraid the masquerade is over And so is love, and so is love Your words don't mean what they used to mean They were once inspired, now they're just routine I'm afraid the masquerade is over And so is love, and so is love I guess I'll have to play Pagliacci And get myself a clown's disguise And learn to laugh like Pagliacci With tears in my eyes You look the same, you're a lot the same But my heart says "no, no, you're not the same" I'm afraid the masquerade is over And so is love, and so is love
The tales of the heart may be as old as time itself but the very human interactions
that give rise to emotions never do.
