[Dsus4] Morning comes too [Cadd9]early,
and nighttime falls too late.
And [Am/C]sometimes [E]all I [GaddA]want to [G(1)]do is [C(1)]wait.
The [Am/C]shadow [E]I've been [GaddA]hiding [G(1)]in has [D(1)]fled from [D6]me to[Am7]day.
[Cmaj7] I know it's [D(2)]easier to [D(1)]walk [D6]away than look in in the [Em7]eye.
[Am]And I will raise a [G(2)]shelter to the [C(2)]sky.
And [Am]here beneath this [G(2)]star tonight I'll [C(2)]lie.
She [Am]will slowly [G(2)]yield the light as [C(2)]I awaken [Dsus4(2)]from the longest

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 !

[Cmaj7]I know it's [D(2)]easier to [D(1)]walk [D6]away, than look it in the [Em7]eye.
But [Am]I have given [G(2)]all that I could [C(2)]take.
And [Am]now I've only [G(2)]habits left to [C(2)]break.
To[Am]night I'll still be [G(2)]lying here, su[C(2)]rrounded in a[Dsus4(2)]ll the [G(1)]light.
