Backstreet
Listen up

This seems so hypnotic, smoke and mirrors, lights and magic
Paper faces in gold
There's soldier boys, beauty queens, everyone's a mystery
It's got me losing control

Yearning, I'm yearning for the one to steal my eyes
Wanna play in this game of disguise

It's a masquerade, a love parade
So won't you stay and dance with me?
All through the night and day
My masquerade, I need you, baby
So stay with me tonight

Masquerade, masquerade
Masquerade, masquerade
Masquerade, masquerade
Masquerade, masquerade

Just like a perfect dream I don't ever wanna leave
A thousand freaks in the show
One's a tiger, one's a lynx, one's a king that suffering
Rolling high, moving low

Burning, I'm burning, can't you see it in my eyes?
Wanna play in this game of disguise

It's a masquerade, a love parade
So won't you stay and dance with me?
All through the night and day
My masquerade, I need you, baby
So stay with me tonight

Masquerade, masquerade
Masquerade, masquerade
Masquerade, masquerade
Masquerade, masquerade

I gotta know the girl behind the mask
Let me in, where you've been? Don't pretend
Don't gotta hide alone
Show your face to me, we could be everything

It's a masquerade, a love parade
So won't you stay and dance with me?
All through the night and day
My masquerade, I need you, baby
So stay

It's a masquerade, a love parade
So won't you stay and dance with me?
All though the night and day
My masquerade, I need you, baby
So stay with me tonight

Masquerade, masquerade
Masquerade, masquerade
Masquerade, masquerade
Masquerade, masquerade
