This MasqueradeWords & Music by Leon Russell
Recorded by George Benson, 1976 (#10)
Am Am+7 Am7 D9 Are we really happy with this lonely game we play, Am F7 E7 Bm7-5 E7 Looking for words to say? Am Am+7 Am7 D9 Searching but not finding understanding any way, F7 E7 Am We're lost in this masquerade Bridge: Gm7 C7 FM7 Dm7 Both afraid to say we're just too far away Gm7 C7 FM7 From being close together from the start; F#m7 B7 E6 E6 alt We tried to talk it over, but the words got in the way; D B7 E7 Bm7-5 E7 We're lost inside this lonely game we play. (Instrumental Interlude - 1 verse) Repeat Bridge: Am Am+7 Am7 D9 Thoughts of leaving disappear ev'ry time I see your eyes, Am F7 E7 Bm7-5 E7 No matter how hard I try Am Am+7 Am7 D9 To understand the reason that we carry on this way, F7 E7 Am Am+7 Am7 Am6 F7 E7 Am We're lost in this masquerade.
