There’s lions and tigers and beasts of every kind,
There’s a big brass band marching in a line,
And if I took your hand right now I know it would be fine,
But after the carnival I know you would be mine.
There’s fireworks as the sun sets, lighting up the sky
It was through their illumination that I caught your eye
We were talking and laughing as the jugglers went by,
But after the carnival I know you won’t be mine
I think the mask I’m wearing suits me very well indeed,
I’ve never felt so confident never been so happy,
But if we met tomorrow you’d see a different personality
I can’t tell if one or the other is the real me.
I’ve got your telephone number but I know I’ll never call,
You’ll think I never liked you but it wasn’t that at all
Tonight was so special you were so beautiful
But the magic’s in a moment that is gone forever.
If I were a magician, if I could do spells I might
See we live forever in that one single night.
I’d find some magic words to say in order to freeze time,
Because after the carnival I know you won’t be mine.
I think the mask I’m wearing suits me very well indeed,
I’ve never felt so confident never been so happy,
But if we met tomorrow you’d see a different personality
I can’t tell if one or the other is the real me.
(x2)
I think the mask I’m wearing suits me very well indeed
(x3)
But after the carnival you won’t recognize me.
