Life's Masquerade

I'm standing here, lost among a masquerade
Hiding behind my mask of secrets that I've made
Just waiting for the one out of them all
Who saw past my mask and broke through my walls.
 
Everyone wears their mask, for reasons much the same
They don't want anyone to see; they try to mask their pain.
I was just like them and am again once more.
I now wear the same mask I did once before.
 
I'm standing here, lost among a masquerade
Hiding behind my mask of secrets that I've made
Just waiting for the one out of them all
Who took off my mask and tore down my walls
 
I put on a mask of a smile or so I try
Yet it merely, simply covers the tears that I cry
Some others have seen, they offer a hand
Though they say they do they really don't understand.
 
I'm standing here, lost among a masquerade
Hiding behind my mask of secrets that I've made
Just waiting for the one out of them all
Who gave back my mask and put back my walls.
 
I'm so sick and tired of trying to pretend
How can I be happy when I've lost my best friend.
There's nothing left for me, nowhere to go
So I wait here until her face to me is shown
 
I'm standing here, lost among a masquerade
Hiding behind my mask of feelings that I've made
Waiting, just waiting for her return
For my heart it aches, and my love for her burns.
 
I'm waiting here, lost among a masquerade
Hiding behind the mask of secrets that I've made
Just sitting off to the side 
as the world simply passes me by
 
Waiting for her, I watch instead of march in life's parade
Watching them in their masquerade
Not sure what to do, if I could only try,
while everyone else just asks me why
 
So I act, wearing my mask, an empty charade 
Walking around, in life's masquerade
Thinking if only I could just go back to that time
Where I didn't want the mask, when I called you mine.
 
But I'm stuck now forever in this mask that I've made,
So how would you find me in this Life's Masquerade
