Masquerade (Tal Bachman)

From the moment I dreamt you I saw your face in every picture around Saw your face in every faceless crowd From the moment I loved you, Long before I’d even met you at all, I knew this day was going to come I don’t want to lose you now by telling the truth So I could lie just a little Talk to you in riddles Play the whole charade I could stay in the middle Play you like a fiddle I could masquerade But I won’t hide from you darling I’ve got to make it clear I’m not all that you’re thinking I’m not how I appear It’s a risk I’m taking I’m trying to be myself so you see While I’m trying to be a better me There’s no hesitating, I’ll do what I should do I could lie just a little Talk to you in riddles Play the whole charade I could stay in the middle Play you like a fiddle I could masquerade But I won’t hide from you darling I’ve got to make it clear I’m not all that you’re thinking I’m not how I appear I won’t blind your eyes, I won’t see you surprised I won’t lie to you baby, you’ve got to realize I can masquerade I can masquerade, wear a masquerade I could lie just little I could talk just a little If I wanted to I could lie, yeah, yeah I could lie just a little Talk to you in riddles Play the whole charade I could stay in the middle Play you like a fiddle I could masquerade I could masquerade I could masquerade And now that I’ve won you Gonna give you everything that you need
