Dsus4                           Cadd9
        Morning comes too       early, 
        and nighttime falls too late.

    Am/C      E     GaddA   G(1)  C(1)
And sometimes all I want to do is wait.

    Am/C   E         GaddA  G(1)   D(1)      D6   Am7
The shadow I've been hiding in has fled from me today.

Cmaj7             D(2)      D(1) D6                       Em7
      I know it's easier to walk away than look in in the eye.

Am                 G(2)           C(2)
And I will raise a shelter to the sky.

    Am                G(2)              C(2)
And here beneath this star tonight I'll lie.

    Am          G(2)               C(2)     Dsus4(2)
She will slowly yield the light as I awaken from the longest

  Dreams are shaking set sirens waking up

  while to think it over.
  But in the end he only sees the change, light to dark
  dark to light, light to dark, dark to light.

Solo:  Requires a single slap-back delay of ~200-300 ms.  My timing isn't
       good enough to get it sounding right, or indeed work out exactly 
       what is being played.  What's below is a rough idea of what I think 
       is going on.  To confuse matters even further it sounds as though 
       there are regular pull-offs onto the open G.  Knowing what John 
       Petrucci is capable of, he probably didn't even use a delay !

I know it's easier to walk away, than look it in the eye.

    Am           G(2)             C(2)
But I have given all that I could take.

    Am            G(2)           C(2)
And now I've only habits left to break.

  Am                  G(2)          C(2)         Dsus4(2)  G(1)
Tonight I'll still be lying here, surrounded in all the    light.
