Dream Theater – Surrounded lyrics

Morning comes too early
And nighttime falls too late

And sometimes all I want to do is wait
The shadow I've been hiding in
Has fled from me today

I know it's easier
To walk away than look it in the eye
But I will raise a shelter to the sky
And here beneath this star tonight I'll lie

She will slowly yield the light
As I awaken from the longest night

(1st solo)

Dreams are shaking
Set sirens waking up tired eyes
With the light the memories
All rush into his head

By a candle stands a mirror
Of his heart and soul she dances
She was dancing through the night
Above his bed

And walking to the window
He throws the shutters out
Against the wall

And from an ivory tower hears her call
'Let light surround you'

It's been a long, long time
He's had a while to think it over
In the end he only sees the change
Light to dark
Dark to light
Light to dark
Dark to light

Heaven must be more than this
When angels waken with a kiss
Sacred hearts won't take the pain
But mine will never be the same

He stands before the window
His shadow slowly fading from the wall

And from an ivory tower hears her call
'Let the light surround you'

(2nd solo)

Once lost but I was found
When I heard the stained glass shatter all around me

I sent the spirits tumbling down the hill
But I will hold this one on high above me still

She whispers words to clear my mind
I once could see but now at last I'm blind

I know it's easier
To walk away than look it in the eye
But I have given all than I could take
And now I've only habits left to break
Tonight I'll still be lying here surrounded
In all the light...
