- Mike Portnoy

I remember a time [01:43]

My frail, virgin mind

Watched the crimson sunrise

Imagined what it might find

Life was filled with wonder

I felt the warm wind blow

I must explore the boundaries

Transcend the depths of winter's snow

Innocence caressing me

I never felt so young before

There was so much life to see

Yet I knew there must be more

But those days are gone now [02:40]

Changed like a leaf on a tree

Blown away forever

Into the cool autumn breeze

The snow has now fallen

And I know where I stand

All of my childhood memories

Left lying in the sand

In my den of inequity [03:22]

Viciousness and delicacy

Struggled to find the sane

Struggled to ease the pain

Ignorance surrounding me

I've never been so filled with fear

Now I know that there is more

The warmth is gone

But the chill forever here

I'll always remember [04:18]

The chill of November

The news of the fall

The sounds in the hall

The clock on the wall, ticking away

"Seize the day"

I heard him say

Life will not always be this way.

Look around, and hear the sound

Another time like this can't be found.

We can learn from the past [05:13]

But those days are gone

In my frail, virgin mind [05:38]

Words have lost my way

I have to seize the day

To home I returned

Preparing for her flight [06:12]

I held with all my might

Fearing my deepest fright

She walked into the night

She turned for one last look

She looked me in the eye

I said, 'I love you... Good-bye.'

Please don't go [06:50]

[Instrumental Section]

So far so few between [09:56]

My eyes filled full

With desire fulfilled

All my dreams came true

All the world,

And all of you

Everyday there's a constant reminder

Of all the pleasures we shared together

Love is not just a passing word

It's a state of heart that goes on forever

I was blinded by a paradise

Utopia high in the sky

The love there will never come away

Deep in sorrow, wandering faraway

I stood outside in the rain for us [11:09]

I tried to work out all of the pain for us

I sat alone and took the blame for us

My mind has torn and gone insane for us

Innocent sinner [11:34]

Repeat offender

Promiscuous promiser

A faith lender

Indecisive decisions

Torn with heartless divisions

Watering all my visions of love

Of all the world, I give to you [12:48]

All of the world,

All the world, I give to you

All of the world

[Instrumental Section]

I'm much wiser now [17:13]

A lifetime of memories

Run through my head

Memories they taught me

For better or worse, alive or dead

I realize, there's no turning back

Life goes on the offbeaten track

I sit down with my son [17:53]

Can't you see the crimson sunset

He's my only one

Now that my time has come

Now that my day is done

Looking into the sun he said

'Don't go, don't go,

please don't go, now.

Don't go, don't go, don't go, don't go.'
