Tal Bachman — Masquerade lyrics

From the moment I dreamt you
I saw your face in every picture around
Saw your face in every faceless crowd

From the moment I loved you,
Long before I' d even met you at all,
I knew this day was going to come

I don' t want to lose you now by telling the truth

So I could lie just a little
Talk to you in riddles
Play the whole charade

I could stay in the middle
Play you like a fiddle
I could masquerade

But I won' t hide from you darling
I' ve got to make it clear
I' m not all that you' re thinking
I' m not how I appear

It' s a risk I' m taking
I' m trying to be myself so you see
While I' m trying to be a better me

There' s no hesitating, I' ll do what I should do

I could lie just a little
Talk to you in riddles
Play the whole charade

I could stay in the middle
Play you like a fiddle
I could masquerade

But I won' t hide from you darling
I' ve got to make it clear
I' m not all that you' re thinking
I' m not how I appear

I won' t blind your eyes, I won' t see you surprised
I won' t lie to you baby, you' ve got to realize

I can masquerade
I can masquerade, wear a masquerade
I could lie just little
I could talk just a little
If I wanted to

I could lie, yeah, yeah
I could lie just a little
Talk to you in riddles
Play the whole charade

I could stay in the middle
Play you like a fiddle
I could masquerade
I could masquerade
I could masquerade

And now that I' ve won you
Gonna give you everything that you need
