This Masquerade (1972 / 1973)

Carpenters - This Masquerade

Are we really happy with this lonely game we play
Looking for words to say
Searching but not finding understanding anyway
We're lost in this masquerade

Both afraid to say we're just too far away
From being close together from the start
We tried to talk it over but the words got in the way
We're lost inside this lonely game we play

Thoughts of leaving disappear
every time I see your eyes
No matter how hard I try
To understand the reason why
we carry on this way
We're lost in a masquerade

We could just start over
but it's oh so hard to do
When you're lost in a masquerade

Leon Russell - This Masquerade

"This Masquerade" was originally written and recorded by Leon Russell in 1972.
In 1973, the Carpenters had also released it on their album, Now & Then, and turned the song into a classic hit.
