Wait for Sleep (Dream Theater Cover with Kaushik Srenevasan)

Lyrics & Chords

Dream Theater is probably my favorite rock group of all time. Theres not a single day during my college life that didnt include dream theater. I’ve been wanting to cover a song from them for a very long time, but was unable to mainly due to the complexity of their work.

Kaushik Srenevasan, a fellow muzibian based out of Seattle asked if I wanted to cover Wait for Sleep by Dream Theater and needless to say I was elated. He did such a brilliant job with the arrangement that it was such a pleasure singing with the track. You should all check out his work. Thank you Kaushik for the collaboration and the brilliant work!

This is definitely a special upload for me and I know I will cherish this for a long time! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this song for the brilliant haunting meloddy, the simplicity of the arrangement and the touching lyrics.

Hope you all enjoy listening to this as much as Kaushik and I enjoyed working on it.

Track: Wait for Sleep (Kevin Moore Version)
Artist: Dream Theater
Album : Images and Words

Cover Arrangement: Kaushik Srenevasan
Cover Vocals and Harmonies: George Kuruvilla


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
