LYRICS - "ACTUAL SIGHS"

MASQUERADER MAN

Words and Music by Richard X. Heyman
Copyright 2006

Walk down the sidewalk, I always do
Same sights I always knew
Catch all the small talk and nothing’s new
And when I reach the door of the place someone calls home
And I climb those stairs aware that I’ll face that room alone and I say

I don’t know no one and no one knows who I am
I am a masquerader man

Same crazy headline as the day before
Oh, damn the New York Post
Way past my deadline, but what’s time for?
And in the time it takes to blink I am standing on my feet
And I’ll face another day and the life out on the street and I say

I’ll face the world outside the only way I can
I’ll be a masquerader man

I don’t know no one and no one knows who I am
I am a masquerader man

I used to think that it was all in my head
Oh, right inside my head
I keep on thinking ‘bout the things that you said
Like I’ll be forever yours and I’ll love you ‘til I die
If I let my feelings show there’ll be no room left to hide and I say

I’ve weighed the choices and I’ve come up with this plan
I’ll be a masquerader man
I’ve weighed the choices and I’ve come up with this plan
I’ll be a masquerader man
I am a masquerader man
I’ll be a masquerader man
I am a masquerader man
