Intro: CC chord GG chord FF chord FmFm chord

Verse:
CC chord
Lets paint a picture you're in class
GG chord
The teacher writes the notes too fast
FF chord
And there's boy who sits in back
FmFm chord
Who's too afraid to raise his hand
CC chord
And ask if she can slow it down
GG chord
So nervously he looks around
FF chord
Can't bare to stand out in the crowd
FmFm chord
And he's only gotten half the notes now


CC chord
The school bell rings

And he feels deflated
GG chord
He looks at his hand

He should've raised it
FF chord
His biggest fear

He should've faced it
FmFm chord
And now he's lost

Inside the pages
CC chord
He might be there but you'd never notice
GG chord
Got a lot to say but he's soft spoken
FF chord
He's a book that just isn't open
FmFm chord
a tiny ripple in a stormy ocean

Chorus:
CC chord         GG chord
Glassman, Mister Glassman
FF chord     FmFm chord
Glassman
CC chord
Mister Glassman!
GG chord
He's really soft spoken
FF chord                        FmFm chord
You never notice glass unless its broken
CC chord
Mister Glassman!
GG chord
He's really soft spoken
FF chord                        FmFm chord
You never notice glass unless its broken
CC chord          GG chord
Mister Glassman

Verse:
CC chord
a few years later

And now its prom season
GG chord
Mister glass isn't going unless he has a reason
FF chord
There's a cutie in his class that he likes a lot
FmFm chord
But he's afraid to ask because they've never talked


CC chord
Plus if she says yes what's he gonna do?
GG chord
Doesn't have a car, dude, he's screwed

He doesn't feel cool
FF chord
He's too subdued

And he's scared to meet her parents too
FmFm chord
Boohoo, just another chance he blew
CC chord
Cause theres way too many things going on in his head
GG chord
And he's always in his head thinking too far ahead
FF chord
Could've gone to prom
FmFm chord
But instead he lays in bed

Thinkin' of all the things that he left unsaid till he's red
CC chord
Sorry Mister Glass; the world has a way
GG chord
But now I'm sure you've heard many people say
FF chord
You miss every opportunity you don't take
FmFm chord
Don't be shy kid, make your own fate

Chorus:
CC chord         GG chord
Glassman, Mister Glassman
FF chord    FmFm chord
Glassman
CC chord
Mister Glassman!
GG chord
He's really soft spoken
FF chord                        FmFm chord
You never notice glass unless its broken
CC chord
Mister Glassman!
GG chord
He's really soft spoken
FF chord                        FmFm chord
You never notice glass unless its broken
CC chord           GG chord
Mister Glassman

Verse: 
   CC chord
Now Mister Glass is older

And he's doing just fine
GG chord
Yeah, he made it through high school

Even though he was shy
FF chord
He's got a group of good friends

And his future is bright
FmFm chord
And he still gets sad

But he's happy with his life
CC chord
Remember when he didn't ask the cutie to prom?
    GG chord
Well, now he's got a couple kids

And they're calling her mom, man
FF chord
And remember when he couldn't raise his hand in class?
FmFm chord
Well now he's up on stage in front of fans rappin' fast
CC chord
But he still gets scared
GG chord
And he still gets nervous
FF chord
Cause you gotta fear the waves
FmFm chord
If you wanna go surfin'
CC chord
Nothin' is for certain
GG chord
Like does cursive have a purpose?
FF chord
Was it worth it that you learned it?
FmFm chord
Probably not
CC chord
I don't know
GG chord
I digress
FF chord
But the point i'm tryna stress
FmFm chord
Is that we're all just made of glass

Even when we're at our best
CC chord
We can break
GG chord
We can split
FF chord               FmFm chord
Or disappear or lose our temper
CC chord                        GG chord
Even if you think you're bullet proof
FF chord              FmFm chord
I am glass and so are you

Chorus:
CC chord         GG chord
Glassman, Mister Glassman
FF chord     FmFm chord
Glassman
CC chord          
Mister Glassman!
GG chord
He's really soft spoken!

You never notice glass unless its broken!
CC chord
Mister Glassman!
GG chord
He's really soft spoken!
FF chord                        FmFm chord
You never notice glass unless its broken!
CC chord                      GG chord
Its hard to get by when you're feelin' so shy
FF chord                           FmFm chord
You gotta keep on movin' just a step at a time
CC chord
Mister Glassman
GG chord
He's really soft spoken!
FF chord                       FmFm chord
You never notice glass unless its broken!
