Stained Glass Masquerade
Stained Glass Masquerade by Casting Crowns.
-------------------------------------------

This sounds pretty accurate to me.

(Standard tuning)

CAPO 1
------
Intro: F , C , G , Am.

F
Is there anyone that fails
                      C
Is there anyone that falls
                      G
Am I the only one in church today
           Am
feeling so small

F
Cause when i take a look around
                    C
Everybody seems so strong
                       G
I know they'll soon discover 
             Am
That i don't belong

F
So i tuck it all away,
                   C
Like everything's okay
                           G      
If i make them all believe it
                      Am
Maybe i'll believe it too

F
So with a painted grin
                C
I play the part again
                     G
So everyone will see me
                    Am
the way that i see them

-------
Chorus
-------
                        F
Are we happy plastic people
                        C
Under shiny plastic steeples
                          G
with walls around our weakness
                       Am
and smiles to hide our pain

F
But if the invitation's open
                                C
to every heart that has been broken
                            G
maybe then we close the curtain
                           F (Play once)
on our stained glass masquerade

-------------------------------
                           F
Is there anyone who's been there
                       C
Are there any hands to raise
                        G
Am i the only one who's traded 
                   Am
in the altar for a stage

F
The performance is convincing
                      C
we know every line by heart
                         G
only when no one is watching
                     Am
can we really fall apart

F
But would it set me free
                      C
if i dared to let you see
                        G
the truth behind the person
                       Am
That you imagine me to be

F
Would your arms be open
                   C
or would you walk away
                   G
would the love of Jesus
                       Am
be enough to make you stay

-------
Chorus x2
-------
                        F
Are we happy plastic people
                        C
Under shiny plastic steeples
                          G
with walls around our weakness
                       Am
and smiles to hide our pain

F
But if the invitation's open
                                C
to every heart that has been broken
                            G
maybe then we close the curtain
                           F (Play once)
on our stained glass masquerade

-------------------------------
                      F
Is there anyone that fails
                      C
Is there anyone that falls
                      G
Am I the only one in church today
           Am
feeling so small

About the artist behind Stained Glass Masquerade:

Casting Crowns is a Grammy award and Dove Award winning Christian band that employs a soft rock music style. The band was created in 1999 by youth pastor Mark Hall at First Baptist Church in Downtown Daytona Beach, Florida as part of a Youth Group. He also serves as a lead vocalist. Later they moved to McDonough, Georgia and more members joined creating the band now known as Casting Crowns. Some members of the band currently work as ministers for Eagles Landing First Baptist Church in McDonough, Georgia.

Discovered by, among others, contemporary Christian music legend Steven Curtis Chapman, Casting Crowns received a recording contract and vaulted to popularity in 2003 with their self-titled debut album Casting Crowns. The album quickly made them one of the fastest selling debut artists in Christian music history. Lifesong followed in 2005, debuting at #9 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. Both albums have been certified Platinum. The band's third album The Altar and the Door debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart and #1 on the Hot Christian Albums chart upon its release in August of 2007. Ten weeks after it came out it was certified Gold.

Casting Crowns has enjoyed tremendous success in the United States. They have released eight singles to date, seven of which have become consecutive number one hits on various Christian music charts. "Voice of Truth" spent a record-breaking fourteen consecutive weeks at #1 beginning in 2003. “Lifesong” spent nine weeks in the top spot, with “Praise You In This Storm” remaining at #1 for seven weeks. Casting Crowns broke their own record in 2007 when the single "East To West" from The Altar and the Door hit sixteen consecutive weeks at #1. The song ended up enjoying the top spot for a total of nineteen weeks, now their most successful single to date.
