“Tearing me apart with words you 1._____ say,
And suddenly tomorrow’s a moment 2._____  away.
‘Cause I don’t have a reason, and you don’t have the time,
But we both keep on waiting for something we 3._____ find.

The light on the horizon was brighter yesterday,
With shadows floating over, the 4._____ begin to fade.
We said it was forever but then it 5._____ away,
Standing at the end of the final masquerade.

The final masquerade

All I ever wanted, the secrets that you 6._____,
All you’ve ever wanted, the 7._____ I couldn’t speak.
‘Cause I can’t see forgiveness, and you can’t see the 8._____,
And we both keep on waiting for what we 9._____ behind.

The light on the horizon was brighter yesterday,
With shadows floating over, the 4._____ begin to fade.
We said it was forever but then it 5._____ away,
Standing at the end of the final masquerade.

(Repeat Chorus…)”
