Masquerade

(Verse One)
Over time our love has run thin
And now it decided to finally run away
I am trying to find it once again
But mainly, I’m trying to find you today
I’m searching for your big smile
And your deep, loving blue eyes
Your kind and caring personality
And your dreaded and sad goodbyes

(Chorus)
Trying to find the old, amazing you
Is like searching a huge masquerade
That is full of hundreds of people
Who are way to horribly afraid
To show themselves to the real world
And instead have to hide in disguise
Behind these fake plastic masks
That cover all but their gleaming eyes

(Verse Two)
I’m still trying to find my other half
As I look for you in this crowd
My searching is becoming so desperate
That I am screaming your name aloud
Anybody here could possibly be you
Because I feel like you have changed
And never decided to explain it to me
Or have the time to tell me be arranged

(Chorus)
Trying to find the old, amazing you
Is like searching a huge masquerade
That is full of hundreds of people
Who are way to horribly afraid
To show themselves to the real world
And instead have to hide in disguise
Behind these fake plastic masks
That cover all but their gleaming eyes

(Bridge)
My hope is starting to slowly fade
As the night is growing very old
I still have never found the true person
Who once loved me and treated me like gold
I guess they will just never turn up
Because all I am finding are fakes
I guess I should just finally give up
And instead let my heart silently break

(Chorus)
Trying to find the old, amazing you
Is like searching a huge masquerade
That is full of hundreds of people
Who are way to horribly afraid
To show themselves to the real world
And instead have to hide in disguise
Behind these fake plastic masks
That cover all but their gleaming eyes

This is good! I like the idea of the girl frantically searching for her love in the room full of fakes. You had some wonderful descriptions and rhymes! :) Good job!
