Your physical presence lingers
Your mind is across the map
Inches separate us from my desires
Miles separate us from yours
You dance in my dreams
So seductive
I’m hidden in your memories
So concealed

We used to laugh
We used to dance
We used to kiss
We used to talk
What happened to that?

Chorus:

This masquerade can’t continue
I feel your love for me
Is on its last legs
Along with you
Please take off the mask
Let me see the face
That you’re hiding from me
Just let me see, let me hear
Let me feel you again
Before you vanish into thin air
(Don’t vanish from me)

Your body is an empty shell
A wasteland with little hope

The kisses you give
Why do they feel so hard and cold?
I don’t want to be a crush or fling
I don’t want to be a memory or sweetheart
I want to be with you until the end
But that is something you can’t seem to see

We used to laugh
We used to dance
We used to kiss
We used to talk
What happened to that?

Chorus:

This masquerade can’t continue
I feel your love for me
Is on its last legs
Along with you
Please take off the mask
Let me see the face
That you’re hiding from me
Just let me see, let me hear
Let me feel you again
Before you vanish into thin air

Your consciousness needs to return
Stop this exploration
And listen to me


We used to laugh
We used to dance
We used to kiss
We used to talk
What happened to that?

Chorus:

This masquerade can’t continue
I feel your love for me
Is on its last legs
Along with you
Please take off the mask
Let me see the face
That you’re hiding from me
Just let me see, let me hear
Let me feel you again
Before you vanish into thin air

Just don’t, please don’t
Vanish into thin air
