I Was Meant for the Stage  The Decemberists

The other tab is fine and all(by Unregistered)... But it didn't have all of the lyrics!
So, here is the full song; enjoy!
[C]I was meant for the stage,
[F]I was meant for the [C]curtain.
[C]I was [Cmaj9]meant to [Am]tread these [Am7/G]boards,
Of [F]this much i am [C]certain.
[C]I was meant for the crowd,
[F]I was meant for the [C]shouting.
[C]I was [Cmaj9]meant to [Am]raise these [Am7/G]hands
With [F]quiet all about [C]me. oh, [G]oh.
[C]Mother, please, be proud.
[F]Father, be for[C]given.
[C]Even [Cmaj9]though you [Am]told me '[Am7/G]Son,
you'll [F]never make a li[C]ving.' oh, [G]oh.
[G]From the floorboards to the f[F]ly,
Here I was fated to re[C]side.
And as I take my final [G]bow,
Was there ever any dou[C]bt?
And as the spotlights fade a[F]way,
And you're escorted through the f[C]oyer,
You will resume your callow w[G]ays,
But I was meant for the st[C]age.
[C]The heaven's at my door.
[F]intended my for [C]stardom.
[C]rays o[Cmaj9]f light s[Am]hined down on[Am7/G] me
and a[F]ll my sins were p[C]ardoned.
[C]I was meant for applause.
[F]I was meant for durigin.
[C]nothing [Cmaj9]short of [Am]faded self [Am7/G]has
[F]affected my d[C]ecision. oh, [G]oh.
[G]From the floorboards to the f[F]ly,
Here I was fated to re[C]side.
And as I take my final [G]bow,
Was there ever any dou[C]bt?
And as the spotlights fade a[F]way,
And you're escorted through the f[C]oyer,
You will resume your callow w[G]ays,
But I was meant for the st[C]age.
