LYRICS:

1.VERSE:

Am          Dm     G             Am
I know the key to secrets never told,
               G        E
they?re hidden in your soul
 Am           Dm         G             Am
Feelings you hide never wanting me to find
        G            E
they?ve always been mine
Dm                          Am
Release all the madness within,
              Am
let it all begin
Dm                                C  E
Now you?ll see, the dark side of me

CHORUS:

                             Am  Dm  G
         In our BLACK MASQUERADE
      Am                       G     E
         Let the moonlight surround you

         ooooh ooooh
      Am      G                 E

2.VERSE:
     Am          Dm          G           Am
The full moon unmasks the stranger in us all

and the cruel world takes its toll
      Am       Dm       G              Am
The shadow is cast on who you used to be,
        G        E
let me set you free
Dm                         Am
Come on now, come take my hand,
                   Am
then you?ll understand
Dm                          C    E
We?ll go to that forbidden land

CHORUS:
                             Am  Dm  G

We ?ll go to that forbidden land

END-CHORUS:
