Masquerade

Like a masquerade

In my fantasy

Dangerous eyes

Hiding a face

You´re invisible

I feel a desire

It’s taking me higher

Under my skin

When the curtain is falling 

My destiny calling

Go down in flames

Like a masquerade

In my fantasy

Dangerous eyes

Hiding a face

You´re invisible

Like a masquerade

In my fantasy

My eyes are blind

All in my mind

What I wanna see

I feel a connection

You want to know me

Behind the mask

Like a masquerade…

This is a world in disguise

I feel the thrill of the night

How could this magic arise?

Higher
HigherLike a masquerade…

My eyes are blind

All in my mind

What I see
