“Stained Glass Masquerade” | Casting Crowns With Lyrics

Carefully watching I see how much I need to measure my words. Sydnee Akers is teaching me this through her powerful but simple expression of emotions. It’s not what I say, but how I say it that counts.

When I was looking for healing, I needed less talking and more loving me as I was. I used to cry when I listened to this song, I wanted so much to be a part of Gods family but I never measured up..

Jesus says that’s a lie. He says come as you are and he prefers the desperate. I will bring this truth to my family and my church…

“The more talk, the less truth; the wise measure their words.” – Proverbs 10:19 (MSG)



“Stained Glass Masquerade”

Is there anyone that fails
Is there anyone that falls
Am I the only one in church today feelin’ so smallCause when I take a look around
Everybody seems so strong
I know they’ll soon discover
That I don’t belongSo I tuck it all away, like everything’s okay
If I make them all believe it, maybe I’ll believe it too
So with a painted grin, I play the part again
So everyone will see me the way that I see themAre we happy plastic people
Under shiny plastic steeples
With walls around our weakness
And smiles to hide our pain
But if the invitation’s open
To every heart that has been broken
Maybe then we close the curtain
On our stained glass masqueradeIs there anyone who’s been there
Are there any hands to raise
Am I the only one who’s traded
In the altar for a stageThe performance is convincing
And we know every line by heart
Only when no one is watching
Can we really fall apartBut would it set me free
If I dared to let you see
The truth behind the person
That you imagine me to beWould your arms be open
Or would you walk away
Would the love of Jesus
Be enough to make you stay
