I Was Meant For The Stage

Decemberists

 C
 I was meant for the stage,
 FC
 I was meant for the curtain.
 CCmaj9AmAm7/G
 I was meant to tread these boards,
 FC
Of this much i am certain.

 C
 I was meant for the crowd,
 FC
 I was meant for the shouting.
 CCmaj9AmAm7/G
 I was meant to raise these hands
 FCG
With quiet all about me. oh, oh.

 C
 Mother, please, be proud.
 FC
 Father, be forgiven.
 CCmaj9AmAm7/G
 Even though you told me 'Son,
 FCG
you'll never make a living.' oh, oh.

 GF
 From the floorboards to the fly,
 C
Here I was fated to reside.
 G
And as I take my final bow,
 C
Was there ever any doubt?
 F
And as the spotlights fade away,
 C
And you're escorted through the foyer,
 G
You will resume your callow ways,
 C
But I was meant for the stage.
