verse 1

 C
Is there anyone that fails
 G
Is there anyone that falls
 DAm7
Am I the only one in church today feelin' so small

verse 2
 C
Cause when I take a look around
 G
Everybody seems so strong
 D
I know they'll soon discover
 Am7
That I don't belong

Bridge

 CG
So I tuck it all away, like everything's okay
 DAm7
If I make them all believe it, maybe I'll believe it too
 CG
So with a painted grin, I play the part again
 DAm7
So everyone will see me the way that I see them

chorus

 C
Are we happy plastic people
 G
Under shiny plastic steeples
 D
With walls around our weakness
 Am7
And smiles to hide our pain
 C
But if the invitation's open
 G
To every heart that has been broken
 D
Maybe then we close the curtain
 Am7
On our stained glass masquerade

verse 3
(female intro)(duet)

 C
Is there anyone who's been there
 G
Are there any hands to raise
 D
Am I the only one who's traded
 Am7
In the altar for a stage

verse 4
(male is'nt singing just female)

 C
The performance is convincing
 G
And we know every line by heart
 D
Only when no one is watching
 Am7
Can we really fall apart

verse 5
(male and female sing together)

 C
But would it set me free
 G
If I dared to let you see
 D
The truth behind the person
 Am7
That you imagine me to be

verse 6

 C
Would your arms be open
 G
Or would you walk away
 D
Would the love of Jesus
 Am7
Be enough to make you stay

repeat chorus then intro.

from the D to Am7 you can add a little riff

 DAm7
