Backstreet Boys - Masquerade Lyrics




Backstreet
Listen up

This scene's so hypnotic
Smoking mirrors, lights and magic
Paper faces in gold
There's solider boys, beauty queens
Everyone's a mystery
It's got me losing control

Yearning, I'm yearning for the one to steal my eyes
Wanna play in this game of disguise

It's a masquerade, a love parade
So won't you stay and dance with me
All through the night and day
My masquerade, I need you baby
So stay with me tonight

Masquerade, Masquerade, Masquerade, Masquerade
Masquerade, Masquerade, Masquerade, Masquerade

Just like a perfect dream
I don't ever wanna leave
A thousand freaks in the show
One's a tiger, one's a lynx
One's a king that suffering
Moving high, moving low
Burning, I'm burning, can't you see it in my eyes?
Wanna play in this game of disguise

It's a masquerade, a love parade
So won't you stay and dance with me
All through the night and day
My masquerade, I need you baby
So stay with me tonight

Masquerade, Masquerade, Masquerade, Masquerade
Masquerade, Masquerade, Masquerade, Masquerade

I gotta know the girl behind the mask
Let me in, where you've been, don't pretend
Dreamed that I had her alone
Show your face to me, we could be everything

It's a masquerade, a love parade
So won't you stay and dance with me
All through the night and day
My masquerade, I need you baby
So stay

A masquerade, a love parade
So won't you stay and dance with me
All though the night and day
My masquerade, I need you baby
So stay with me tonight

Masquerade, Masquerade, Masquerade, Masquerade
Masquerade, Masquerade, Masquerade, Masquerade

    Why wasn't this a single, it should of been! It's epic!

  7. The Secret History

    2018! Badass song! Wished they performed it in concert. 😟

  8. itsjemmabond

    Bad move, Jive! This should have been a single.

  9. Poison 8991

    ahhhh ahhh ahh ah..

  10. Poison 8991

  11. Maria Zidane

    2017 anyone?

  12. Angelaangel Lebico

    I like this one, bsb is the best!

  13. Zaye T

    Call me crazy and I know it's not true but it always SEEMED like Nick was the leader in the group.

    teenie36214

    Zaye T I think most fans would say it's Brian. Even though it was precisely around the time of this albums release that he got swine flu then a year or two later started showing signs of his vocal cord condition. From a technical standpoint Brian probably is the best singer in the group. Then probably AJ second then Nick. Them three were/are the lead singers. Although I remember an interview they did when Kevin was gone (I think it's on their VEVO channel) where they were asked who the "unofficial" leader of the group is and AJ said something like "if there is a leader, he's gone now" obviously referring to Kevin. Kevin IS the oldest after all so maybe in a weird way AJ is right if we're talking about age lol

    reyanime

    Kevin would of been considered the leader if they had one. Brian did have the best voice. Unfortunately, not anymore due to his condition. I think Nick sounds the best now. Nick is more like the center/face of the group.

    Trinity David

    Brian has improved so much. He sounds a lot better now!😃 He never gave up, or lost hope. He trusted God to heal him, and God did just that. Brian was and is truly amazing💛

    Domi Nache'

    I think AJ has the best voice personally.. and Kevin is more of keeping everyone ground and focus.. voice or reason of the ground.. i dont see any as a leader.. they all bring some to the group that makes the music good and work together...

    nickrackhead

    Zaye T nick sang most of the parts in the 2 albums (this is us/in a world like this) he can handle the notes properly but i would say Brian or Kev seems the leader of the group. Good thing they treated each other equally.

  14. Nelson D Z Miller

    its a good beat, BSB got to have a dance track somewhere, and this might be it for This Is Us, sounds good

  15. Jhonata The Marco

    Hot 🔥

  16. Elena Avilés

    💗never get tired of them💗🎧🎶🎵love from Mexico

  17. pete polites

    backstreet boys music never gets old

    Tea Zidic

    👌👌👌

  18. JSP

    Can someone tell me why Brian don't like this song.

    teenie36214

    KTBSPA I'm not sure if he's ever said exactly why, BUT if I wanted to guess I'd think he'd possibly think it's a bit cheesy. AJ doesn't like it either and I think I heard Kevin say he doesn't like it when he was asked once about which songs he likes and dislikes from "Unbreakable" and "This Is Us" albums since he was not a part of them.

    Dylan Miller

    djjshjdjjdhhdknjfje making vegetable lasagna

  19. Fair One Entertainment LLC

    hands down, best song on the album. between this one and "Straight Through My Heart" are nearly tied.

    teenie36214

    🤔 I'd say Undone is the best one 😁

    Domi Nache'

    Either Shes a Dream or Undone for me as the best song on the album..

  20. Patricia viera do carmo

    linda música amo esses caras muito show

  21. Michy Show

    bellissima canzona

  22. Xavier Biekman

    Can you imagine the music video for this song?!

    teenie36214

    Xavier Biekman I would imagine it possibly being like OneRepublic's video for "All The Right Moves"

    nickrackhead

    Xavier Biekman backstreets back dance with masks lmao poor imagination

  29. Владислава 483

    Listen to song Tokio Hotel - monsoon , and you will be surprised at the similarities, especially in the chorus. The original meaning monsoon of 2005, and this group 2009.

  41. Bethebug123

    But he came back :)

  42. Chiara Pagano

    OMG i can't believe Howie can sing notes so high!! XD

    itsjemmabond

    He's a falsetto, of course he can go high!

  43. chrispleasantable

    That's right, as a matter of fact he left to go for other interests but most importantly to take of his family (his wife and kids).

  44. chrispleasantable

    This song came in my mind after hearing "Million Bucks" by Cimorelli

  45. BSBPOTTERLINSIM

    He left the group from 2006-2012.

  46. chrispleasantable

    This was track 8 from The Backstreet Boys' 6th album "This Is Us" and was the 28th song I learned by these 4 really awesome dudes. This is another 2009 party song in my ears.

  47. Veronica Johns

    one dislike? wtf?!

  48. Musical Writer

    @larissa19h

  49. Musical Writer

    Thank you. :)

  50. larissa

    @Love89571 . He left the band after their never gone album to start a family. The other memebers told kevin that he is always welcome back to the group if he wants to join them again. I saw him join the bsb when they were at staples center during the nkotbsb tour
