Madison Beer’s “Stained Glass” Lyrics

“Stained Glass” is an emotional song from American singer Madison Beer. Actually the song is based on a dark episode in her life. Throughout the lyrics, Madison implores the addressee to be careful how they treat her because unlike others she has a skin “made of glass”. This is a metaphor she is using to let the addressee know that she is easily hurt or broken by negative criticism.

She begins the song’s chorus by first of all stating the aforementioned. And she goes on to tell the addressee that while her skin is “made of glass”, this glass isn’t perfect (i.e. “it’s stained”). And owing to the stains on her skin’s glass, it makes it so easy for the addressee to see “the cracks” (i.e. her imperfections or flaws) and criticize her. However, she is imploring the recipient of her message to look beyond her imperfection (“the cracks”) and notice her pain instead. She hopes that doing so would make the addressee understand the things she’s gone through. And hopefully he/she would be more gentle with her in terms of the way he/she says negative things about her.

That being said, she goes on to warn the person(s) she is talking to that if they ignore her earlier pleas and throw one more stone at her, she’d be forced to stay as far away as possible from them in order to save herself from breaking.
