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                   C
I was meant for the curtain. 
C     Cmaj9    Am          Am7/G
I was meant to tread these boards, 
   F              C
Of this much i am certain. 

C
I was meant for the crowd, 
F                   C
I was meant for the shouting. 
C     Cmaj9    Am          Am7/G
I was meant to raise these hands 
     F               C       G
With quiet all about me. oh, oh. 

C
Mother, please, be proud. 
F             C
Father, be forgiven. 
C    Cmaj9      Am       Am7/G
Even though you told me 'Son, 
       F              C          G
you'll never make a living.' oh, oh. 

G                            F
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. 

C
The heaven's at my door.
F               C
intended my for stardom.
C     Cmaj9    Am           Am7/G
rays of light shined down on me
     F                C
and all my sins were pardoned.

C       
I was meant for applause.
F
I was meant for durigin.
C       Cmaj9    Am         Am7/G 
nothing short of faded self has
F            C            G
affected my decision. oh, oh.

G                            F
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.
