Your eyes don't shine like they used to shine
And the thrill is gone when your lips meet mine
I'm afraid the masquerade is over
And so is love
And so is love

Your kiss don't mean what it used
What it used to mean
It once was inspired
And now it's just another routine
I'm so afraid the masquerade is over
And so is love
And so is love

I guess I'll have to play Pagliacci 
And get myself a clown's disguise
And then I'll learn to laugh
Laugh like Pagliacci
Oh, with tears all in my eyes

Hey baby, your kiss don't mean what it used
What it used to mean
It once was inspired 
Now it's just an everyday routine
I'm so afraid the masquerade is over
And so is love
And so is love
