  • Is there ever really a right time
    You had led me to believe
    Someday you'd be there for me

    When the stars above aligned
    When you weren't so consumed
    I kept looking for the clues

    So I waited in the shadows of my heart
    And still the time was never right

    Until one day I stopped caring
    And began to forget why I longed to be so close
    And I disappeared into the darkness
    And the darkness turned to pain
    And never went away
    Until all that remained
    Was buried deep beneath the surface

    A shell of what things could have been

    Tired bones beneath a veil
    Of guarded secrets all too frail
    Sad to think I never knew
    You were searching for the words
    For the moment to emerge

    Yet the moment never came
    You couldn't risk my fragile frame

    Until one day you stopped caring
    And began to forget why you tried to be so close
    And you disappeared into the darkness
    And the darkness turned to pain
    And never went away
    Until all that remained
    Was buried deep beneath the surface

    I would scream just to be heard
    As if yelling at the stars
    I was bleeding just to feel

    You would never say a word
    Kept me reaching in the dark
    Always something to conceal

    Until one day I stopped caring
    And began to forget why I longed to be so close
    And I disappeared into the darkness
    And the darkness turned to pain
    And never went away
    Until all that remained
    Was buried deep beneath the surface Writer/s: JOHN PETRUCCI
