Album The George Benson Collection. This Masquerade Lyrics. Both afraid to say we're just to 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 reasons why we carry on this way We're lost in a masquerade.
