Gift for deelaundry by bironic (Dead Poets Society)

Title of vid: I was meant for the stage
Recipient: deelaundry
Vidder: bironic
Fandom: Dead Poets Society
Music: I Was Meant for the Stage (edited) by The Decemberists
Summary: I just want to give credit to Dani/MysticTwilight, who made a DPS vid to the same song back in 2006 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luslnWzeZ1M), which I didn't learn about until after this one was finished. I remember Dani's great DPS/House crossover vid (http://house-wilson.livejournal.com/499082.html) where Neil grew up to be Wilson, but don't recall having seen the Decemberists one. There are some similar clip match-ups between us, understandably, but overall I think the two vids tell their stories in different enough ways to warrant going ahead with posting this one. Apologies if we shadows have offended.
Content notes: Depicts suicide
Signed length: 02:34

Lyrics
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 forgiving
Even though you told me
Son, you'll never make a living
Oh, oh

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
