The Masquerade

by: The Carpenters

[Abm            B+]
Are we really happy with
[      Ab7           C#]
This lonely game we play
[ Abm            Eb         Eb7]
Looking for the right words
  to say
[ Abm              B+]
Searching but not finding
[        Ab9       C#]
Understanding anyway
[    E               Eb7     Abm]
We're lost in this masquerade
[F#m7           B6             EM7]
Both afraid to say we're just too
[      C#m7]
  far away
[      F#m7       B6      D]
From being close together from
[       EM7]
  the start


((REFRAIN:))
 [    Fm              Bb]
 We tried to talk it over
 [ Bb7b9       EbM9]
 But the words got in the way
 [      C#     Bb          Eb]
 We're lost inside this lonely
   game we play
 [ Abm                  B+]
 Thoughts of leaving disappear
 [     Ab7            C#]
 Each time I see your eyes
 [Abm           E9         Eb7]
 And no matter how hard I try
 [     Abm           B+]
 To understand the reason
 [        Ab7          C#]
 Why we carry on this way
 [         E           Eb7 Ab7 C# Abm]
 We're lost in this masquerade

(Repeat REFRAIN)
