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

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 !
