Masquerade

Today you went away
And I'm still waiting here for you
I fill my time with thoughts
Of butterflies and empty rooms

You don't know what it’s like
To leave me here alone
Oh now can't you see
I'm dying on my own

And now I'm standing here with nothing left to say
You've taken everything, all that I could pay
My life has nothing left but simple melodies
The tunes of life I had are all that's left for me

 

This is my happy song
That filled my heart and made me glad
But now the music's died
And dreams are all the friends I have

This is a happy song
That filled my heart when you were near
The mask I wore for you
Has cracked and warped and shows my fear

And now I'm standing here with nothing left to say
You've taken everything, all that I could pay
My life has nothing left but simple melodies
The tunes of life I had are all that's left for me

 

There's something deep inside
That fell apart so long ago
My life has fallen down
And time just passes me so slow

Come back to me my love
And I will try to come to you
I'm lost inside my mind
With someone else's darkened view

And now I'm standing here with nothing left to say
You've taken everything, all that I could pay
My life has nothing left but simple melodies
The tunes of life I had are all that's left for me
