Charade (Audio)

When we played our charade,
we were like children posing,
playing at games, acting out names,
guessing the parts we played.

Oh, what a bill we made!
We came on next to closing
Best on the bill, lovers until
love left the masquerade.

Fate seemed to pull the strings
I turned, and you were gone
While from the darkened wings,
the music-box played on.

Sad little serenade,
song of my heart's composing
I hear it still, I always will
Best on the bill -- charade.
