"Long Time Suffering" as written by and Neal Morse....
I never saw such a place in all my life
This is tomorrow's song
I think I've waited too long
Can't seem to see through the scraping of the sky
And now it seems so wrong
To think I spent such a

Long time suffering and crying to the sky
Long time suffering and never knowing why

I have a gift that can see beyond the years
The touch so refined
I have transcended all time
My heart can reach through the secret well of tears
And when they all come out
Won't have to spend such a

Long time suffering and crying to the sky
Long time suffering and never knowing why
The child awakening to a city in the sky
Spent such a long time suffering and never knowing why

I may be only seventeen but I see things
Look at the woman who's head keeps hangin' down
I cannot feel her hate I feel her needing
Some how I feel like I cannot let her down

I never saw such a place in all my life
This is tomorrow's song, I waited much too long
The change can come in a twinkling of an eye
The slave running free; the salmon floating downstream
The change can come in a twinkling of an eye
The slave running free, so why'd we spend such a

Long time suffering and crying to the sky
Long time suffering and never knowing why
The child awakening to a city in the sky
Spent such a long time suffering

The change can come in a twinkling of an eye
