The Decemberists - I Was Meant For The Stage Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • I was meant for the stage,
  • I was meant for the curtain.
  • 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. oh, oh.
  • Mother, please, be proud.
  • Father, be forgiven.
  • Even though you told me
  • 'Son, you'll never make a living.' oh, oh.
  • From the floorboards to the fly,
  • 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.
  • The heavens at my birth
  • Intended me for stardom,
  • Rays of light shone 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, oh.
  • From the floorboards to the fly,
  • 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.
