stained glass masquerade - casting crowns

Monday 7 May 2007
[beginning to lose God and fall into sin, while at Bible School, came across this song that described how I was feeling at the time]
[was chair for the Ladies Committee at Cape Theological Seminary at this time]

Is there anyone that fails


Is there anyone that falls

Am I the only one in church today feelin' so small



Cause when I take a look around

Everybody seems so strong

I know they'll soon discover

That I don't belong



So 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 them



Are 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 masquerade



Is 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 stage



The performance is convincing

And we know every line by heart

Only when no one is watching

Can we really fall apart



But would it set me free

If I dared to let you see

The truth behind the person

That you imagine me to be



Would your arms be open

Or would you walk away

Would the love of Jesus

Be enough to make you stay
