“Life’s Not a Masquerade” – New Original Lyrics


How was I to know I’d meet my demise?

You looked at me with those innocent eyes.

I can’t think why I gave you chances.

You took my heart, & forgot about romance.

 

Chorus:

Life’s not a masquerade.

You can’t hide in disguise.

My heart won’t degrade.

My love’s not a prize.

I’ll escape your waltz.

I’ll leave your harmful faults.

 

You can’t dance around the same old issues,

We know you gave up and you withdrew.

Break hearts as you switch partners like clothes,

You can’t win love with an enchanted rose.

 

Chorus:

Life’s not a masquerade.

You can’t hide in disguise.

My heart won’t degrade.

My love’s not a prize.

I’ll escape your waltz.

I’ll leave your harmful faults.

 

Bridge:

I’ll find my own strength to defeat.

I’ll keep in time with my heartbeat.

I’m no longer weak like a wallflower.

I’m dancing with my passion and power.

 

You always gave me clues to my own demise,

You played me with those coy innocent eyes.

I shouldn’t have given you all those chances.

You’ll never get my heart, so forget romance.

 

Chorus:

Life’s not a masquerade.

You can’t hide in disguise.

My heart won’t degrade.

My love’s not a prize.

I’ll escape your waltz.

I’ll leave your harmful faults.
