Intro: C G F Fm

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


C
The school bell rings

And he feels deflated
G
He looks at his hand

He should've raised it
F
His biggest fear

He should've faced it
Fm
And now he's lost

Inside the pages
C
He might be there but you'd never notice
G
Got a lot to say but he's soft spoken
F
He's a book that just isn't open
Fm
a tiny ripple in a stormy ocean

Chorus:
C         G
Glassman, Mister Glassman
F     Fm
Glassman
C
Mister Glassman!
G
He's really soft spoken
F                        Fm
You never notice glass unless its broken
C
Mister Glassman!
G
He's really soft spoken
F                        Fm
You never notice glass unless its broken
C          G
Mister Glassman

Verse:
C
a few years later

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


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

He doesn't feel cool
F
He's too subdued

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

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

Chorus:
C         G
Glassman, Mister Glassman
F    Fm
Glassman
C
Mister Glassman!
G
He's really soft spoken
F                        Fm
You never notice glass unless its broken
C
Mister Glassman!
G
He's really soft spoken
F                        Fm
You never notice glass unless its broken
C           G
Mister Glassman

Verse: 
   C
Now Mister Glass is older

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

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

And his future is bright
Fm
And he still gets sad

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

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

Even when we're at our best
C
We can break
G
We can split
F               Fm
Or disappear or lose our temper
C                        G
Even if you think you're bullet proof
F              Fm
I am glass and so are you

Chorus:
C         G
Glassman, Mister Glassman
F     Fm
Glassman
C          
Mister Glassman!
G
He's really soft spoken!
F                        Fm
You never notice glass unless its broken!
C
Mister Glassman!
G
He's really soft spoken!
F                        Fm
You never notice glass unless its broken!
C                      G
Its hard to get by when you're feelin' so shy
F                           Fm
You gotta keep on movin' just a step at a time
C
Mister Glassman
G
He's really soft spoken!
F                       Fm
You never notice glass unless its broken!
