[Verse 1:]
I'd like to take this time, just to apologize,
The way you see me now, and what I am inside,
Really a character, there wasn't in it for us,
I tried to keep it up.

[Hook 1:]
When I looked in your eyes, tonight,
I saw your heart crystal clear,
And when you look back in mine,
The truth seemed to disappear.

[Chorus:]
Because it was all, it was all,
It was all a masquerade,
Because it was all, it was all,
It was all a masquerade,
Masquerade [x8]

[Verse 2:]
I said "I loved you" first,
Well "love" is just a word,
Said it so many times,
That it became a blur,
You're not the only one,
I'm sure that hearing it hurts,
Of all the pain you had,
I'm the worst.

[Hook 2:]
And in your eyes tonight,
I saw your heart crystal clear,
And when you looked back in mine,
All the lies re-appeared.

[Chorus:]
Because it was all, it was all,
It was all a masquerade,
Because it was all, it was all,
It was all a masquerade,
masquerade [x8]

[Bridge:]
Now I can't believe you're telling me,
That you can move on easily,
I thought you really cared for me,
I was wrong, I was wrong,
I should've known my fun was bitter sweet,
And saw the possibilites of me playing you, while playing me,
I was wrong, I was wrong,

So I guess it was all, it was all,
It was all a masquerade.

I guess it was all, it was all,
It was all a masquerade.

Masquerade [x8]

A masquerade

    My OpinionI think this song is about knowing the guy played her and so she played the game along with him. In the end the whole relationship was just for show and that's why it's just a "masquerade," because neither person showed their true selves. It was just a "masquerade."
