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

  But in the end he only sees the change, light to dark

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.
