the Masquerade Is Over
Cannonball Adderley Lyrics


My blue horizon is turning grey
And my dreams are drifting away

Your eyes don't shine like they used to shine
And the thrill is gone when your lips meet mine
I'm afraid the masquerade is over
And so is love, and so is love

Your words don't mean what they used to mean
They were once inspired, now they're just routine
I'm afraid the masquerade is over
And so is love, and so is love

I guess I'll have to play Pagliacci
And get myself a clown's disguise
And learn to laugh like Pagliacci
With tears in my eyes

You look the same, you're a lot the same
But my heart says "no, no, you're not the same"
I'm afraid the masquerade is over
And so is love, and so is love

I guess I'll have to play Pagliacci
And get myself a clown's disguise
And learn to laugh like Pagliacci
With tears in my eyes

You look the same, you're a lot the same
But my heart says "No, no, you're not the same"
I'm afraid the masquerade is over
And so is love, and so is love

RIP my favorite contemporary jazz artist.....the voice, the phrasing, the cool.....no comparison.

Marcia Parms

Absolutely no comparison.

Gone but never forgotten. Rest In Peace.

Magical voice of Nancy Wilson & Joe Zawinul playing those heavenly piano riffs are the perfect duo...

Jim Griffin

Best, most sensitive Joe Zawinul I ever heard.... don't know if anyone on earth could have played this any better, and he's LISTENING to what Nancy is doing..... that's a rare art slipping away I suspect
