Lucky Dube - Mask Lyrics




He puts on a brave face every morning and every night
He goes on stage, with a big smile on his face
You split you sides with laughter
You are sitting at the edge of your seat
'Cause you want some more
Show is over; he goes home, he takes off his mask
Tears running down his face, it's unbelievable
We all have our masks on, the world is a stage
Go on tell me, what is your story
Go on don't be shy, what is your story

[Chorus:]
Behind the Mask of a clown lies a trail of tears ...

Celebrities among us, all the time
Big smiles for the cameras around
They have lives that we only dream of
But on the inside they hurt just like us
They have things, that we only see in the movies
The tears we cry, on the outside
They cry, on the inside
Just like the clown, they go home
Take off the masks
The world is a stage, go on what is your story

[Chorus:]
Behind the Mask of a clown lies a trail of tears ...

    He puts on a brave face every morning and every night
    He goes on stage, with a big smile on his face
    You split your sides with laughter
    You are sitting at the edge of your seat
    'Cause you want some more
    Show is over; he goes home, he takes off his mask
    Tears running down his face, it's unbelievable
    We all have our masks on, the world is a stage
    Go on tell me what is your story
    Go on don't be shy, what is your story

    [Chorus:]
    Behind the Mask of a clown lies a trail of tears.

    Celebrities among us, all the time
    Big smiles for the cameras around
    They have lives that we only dream of.
    But on the inside they hurt just like us,
    They have things, we only see in the movies
    The tears we cry, on the outside
    They cry, on the inside
    Just like the clown, they go home
    Take off the masks
    The world is a stage, go on what is your story.

    [Chorus:]
    Behind the Mask of a clown lies a trail of tears.
