Black Masquerade

Album: Stranger In Us All (1995)
  • I know the key to secrets never told, they're hidden in your soul
    Feelings you hide never wanting me to find they've always been mine
    Release all the madness within let it all begin
    Now you'll see, the dark side of me
    In our black masquerade
    Let the moonlight surround you
    The game that we play is
    The black masquerade
    The full moon unmasks the stranger in us all
    And the cruel world takes its toll
    The shadow is cast on who you used to be
    Let me set you free
    Come now, come take my hand, then you'll understand
    We'll go to that forbidden land
    Of our black masquerade
    Let the darkness surround you
    The game that we play is the black masquerade
    Release all the madness within, let it all begin
    We'll go to that forbidden land
    Come let me take you there
    Let the moonlight surround you
    Don't be afraid, it's the black masquerade Writer/s: Candice L. Isralow, Douglas Thomson White, Paul Morris, Richard Blackmore
