Behind Your Mask

Wipe off your face
Put away the tears
This night’s for the crowd
Listen to the cheers

They’ve come tonight
To forget all their woes
You hide your pain
So nobody knows
Nobody knows

Nobody knows when you smile for the crowd
They don’t hear you cry
Cuz their cheers are too loud
They can’t see your pain
Cuz the light’s in their eyes
They can’t see through your disguise
Behind your mask is where the truth lies

You hide it so well
Behind your blue eyes
The living hell
That kills you inside

But the show must go on
So on with the show
You play it with feeling
But they just don’t know
Yeah, nobody knows

Nobody knows when you smile for the crowd
They don’t hear you cry
Cuz their cheers are too loud
They can’t see your pain
Cuz the light’s in their eyes
They can’t see through your disguise
Behind your mask is where the truth lies

The tears they will fall
They can’t be held back
The river will flow
It will not retract

The night’s almost over
The last song’s been sung
Friends gather around you
And tell you you are the one
Yeah, you are the one

Nobody knows when you smile for the crowd
They don’t hear you cry
Cuz their cheers are too loud
They can’t see your pain
Cuz the light’s in their eyes
They can’t see through your disguise
Behind your mask is where the truth lies

Behind Your Mask
