  Song: I Was Meant For The Stage



C                          F                   C
I was meant for the stage, I was meant for the curtains
C     C/B      Am          Am/G       F              C
I was meant to tread these boards, of this much I am certain

I was meant for the crowd, I was meant for the shouting
I was meant to raise these hands with quiet all about me
   G
Oh whoa...

Mother, please be proud, Father, be forgiving
Even though you told me, son, you'll never make a living
   G       G7
Oh whoa...

                            F                          C
From the floorboards to the flies, here I was fated to reside
                       G    G7                 C      C7
And as I take my final bow, was there ever any doubt
                       F                                C
And as the spotlights fade away, and you're escorted through the foyer,
                            G         G7                  C
You will resume your callow ways, but I was meant for the stage

The heavens, at my birth, intended me for stardom
Rays of light shine down on me and all my sins were pardoned

I was meant for applause, I was meant for derision
Nothing short of fate itself has affected my decision
Oh whoa...

From the floorboards to the flies, here I was fated to reside
And as I take my final bow, was there ever any doubt
And as the spotlights fade away, and you're escorted through the foyer,
You will resume your callow ways, but I was meant for the stage

C      F       C     C  C/B  Am   Am/G   F    C     G
G G     G G    G G

C      F       C     C  C/B  Am   Am/G   F    C     G...
