Wait For Sleep Lyrics - Dream Theater



Review The Song (4)


- Kevin Moore

Standing by the window
Eyes upon the moon
Hoping that the memory will leave her spirit soon
She shuts the doors and lights
And lays her body on the bed
Where images and words are running deep
She has too much pride to pull the sheets above her head
So quietly she lays and waits for sleep

She stares at the ceiling
And tries not to think
And pictures the chain
She's been trying to link again
But the feeling is gone

And water can't cover her memory
And ashes can't answer her pain
God give me the power to take breath from a breeze
And call life from a cold metal frame

In with the ashes
Or up with the smoke from the fire
With wings up in heaven
Or here, lying in bed
Palm of her hand to my head
Now and forever curled in my heart
And the heart of the world

This is one of the more beautiful Dream Theater compositions, and although it's short, and only keyboards and vocals; it's still definitively Dream Theater. It's one of my favourite tracks off the Images and Words album, and it's never going to leave me...

you have to listen to this song at night, 3 o clock, and sit by the window. look at the moon (full moon would be best) and you will feel the song. you'll never forget this feeling.

short but awesome. dream theater ftw!

This is an amazing song from the album Images and Words, its a few years old but well worth it.
