Dream Theater - Chosen Lyrics




[Gabriel:]
Her words ring true
Her message clear
How can he hear
Through all the noise and dissonance?

I've seen a sign
That he can change
If given just a chance

Against all hope
We found a way
And it is all because she trusts in me

Why have a gift
You can't embrace
When all you need is faith?

And there's a reason now I see
The reason I've been chosen
She sees the light inside of me
A reason to believe

But I can't climb this mountain without you
No, I can't face this on my own
With you by my side, we will open his eyes
And the truth will deliver us home

And there's a reason now I see
The path that he has chosen
He fears the light inside of me

In the absence of song
He's forgotten right from wrong
Our voices will release him
He's refused to listen far too long

I'm convinced beyond a doubt
There can be no other way
He just has to hear me out
There's so much I need to say

But I can't climb this mountain without you
No, I can't face this on my own
With you by my side, we will open his eyes
And the truth will deliver us home

  4. rainbowdemon999

    And then there are people who dislike James' vocals????? What a singular voice....stellar technique paired with such profound emotion......This song is beautiful but the vocals make it divine....

  5. jean-pierre straub

    This song has the best solo of the album, for me

  6. IMAGINE TV

    Chosen = Portnoy out, New Beginning = Portnoy out, Begin again = Portnoy out

  7. Ale vega diaz

    All the world dislikes The Astonishing, but this album has "Chosen", on of the best DT ballads in their history

  8. hehehe yup ok

    My favourite Dream Theatre song. Makes me want to slowdance under the stars.

    Maybe someday.

    Maravilhoso. Emocionante. Espetacular !!!

  14. Matías Concha

    porque chucha maluma tiene mas reproducciones que esto

  15. Rons Dad

    I swear, every song off of this album is someone's favorite, which is why I love DT. There is always something to love, even if a lot of people don't like it. Diversity at it's finest.

  18. adi fahrizal

  19. Sebastijan Dominis

    This is becoming my favourite solo. Great, now I have to practice for another few months in order to play it :/ :P

  20. red sed

    This us the fukking gayest lamest DT album ive ever fukking heard! Fuk this shit! Although some songs are nice to listen too, why must the whole album be ballads gay shit! What ever happened to progressive metal??
    Bring back Kevin Moore and Portnoy!

    "The Balls and Chunk is where its at" - Portnoy, Images and words line in Tokyo video

    Dunford00

    sounds like its past your bedtime..

    Rommel Padilla

    think the same, boring gay ballads. some songs good like lord nafaryus and so; but most all piece of trash -__-"

  21. Kingcounty1

    One question though: Against all hope?

  22. Tauseef Asad

    That James guy has a great voice

  23. RIFF DT

    เพลงช้าๆอย่าง Chosen, Act of fayth, losing fayth, begin again, the x-aspect

  34. roberta greci

    un opera totale....tutto l'album.Fantastico

  35. John Dyda

    Is it just me or should Andrew Lloyd Weber hear this and turn it into an amazing musical? Not that I'm particularly into musicals as such. But what a waste it would be, no?

  36. David Ignacio Escobar

    Dream Theater will never die !!

  37. MuguPiensa

    This song is GREAT! LIKE! I`m loving it! hahahahaha

  41. Tutha Aulia

  42. Kevin James Stevens

    ..and the truth will deliver us.... HOME, it's what Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiii LOOOOONG!!!

  43. mas bro

    This song will be 100x times better with portnoy :(, this is the worst thing happen with DT..

  44. mas bro

    I feel like hearing drum from the 90's, white lion's era, old school rock, i want portnoy back ! :(

  45. mas bro

    DT became oldschool again :( , it's like a program computer playing the drum :(, i want my old DT backkk, give it back my portnoy :(. I want portnoy ! :( * i'm really sad :/

    HeHoZy

    mas bro i feel you bro. Mangini is a FANTASTIC drummer and a wonderful guy. In fact he's probably the best drummer to ever grace this world. TECHNICALLY. But i miss Portnoy's attitude and songwriting + his out of this world emotional drumming. He is the soul of Dream Theater.

  46. littmus32ify

    Can't wait to see (and hear) this song live on Nov. 1st!

  47. Amine Neffati

    Malmsteen may cry ...

    Doru Saur

    Amine Neffati :)))

  48. Angela Rizzi

    Che Bella Questa Canzone

  49. Andresttyo

    Creo que es una de las mejores baladas de Dream Theater.

  50. ahmad ramdhani

    so deep 😭😞

  51. Tolga Bayar

    Bu kadar narin olamaz bir parça.

  52. BawalYonMaster

    by the "But I cant climb this mountain without you" part,

    i always imagine james labrie in his younger hunky looking days singing on a mountain with petrucci, and wind blowing through their hair. i cant be the only one

  53. J Patete

    18 persons like Nickelback

  54. Michele De Cinti

    magnifica!!

  55. erizzt586

    Best DT ballad, love it!

  56. revy chaniago

    they should bring the astonishing to broadway soon.

  57. revy chaniago

    why my tears falling down
    . who is chopping onions around here?

  58. fabptitpom

    This is PATHETIC, how could Dream Theater do that? Worst album ever

  59. Mehmet Doğukan Cosun

    intro seem like leonard cohens' a thousand kisses deep

  60. Agit D. Handoyo

  63. ひかり

  64. Jacob Acosta

    Anybody else hear About To Crash start to begin inside their head at 3:46? haha every time I listen to this song i hear the piano intro to About to Crash at that point, and then become disappointed when it doesn't come :P

  65. Sms Yam

    Thank you for this wonderful work.
    Merci Dream Theater.

  66. ZeFonBass

    Love this new album! I listen to everyday at least twice!

  67. lDreamx Theaterl

    The combination of labries voice with johns guitar makes such a beautiful song. Really breathtaking. I Also like that mangini didn't try to make it a drum off.

  68. Cristian R.F

    Bella bella

  69. MattySOP

    Dat solo though!!

  70. Arief Kurniawan

    a heartmoving song . i realy love dream theater

  71. Domenico Mandia

    John Petrucci is cold they said :x

    Doru Saur

    Their brains are cold my friend....

  72. Ignacio Verdugo

    All I ask to DT now is to shoot a Wither-esque video for this song. That'd be beautiful.

  73. lupash

    WE BACK INTO THE THEATER OF DREAMS AGAIN

  74. Helmi Putra

    Best musician ever!!!

  75. Metal Gamer

    What a song!

  76. Christopher Har V

  77. Barry Dompor

    13 Dislikes are JUSTIN BIEBER fans

    Guillaume Roussel

    +Barry Dompor What's the link ?

    John Appleseed

  78. Raffaell W

  81. Parikesit Tanudjaja

    dat chorus

  82. yunhokuto

    美しい心地よい曲♪ 大好きです。
    I Love This Song very well!

    Renou 42

    Yea, 本当に素晴らしいです!

  83. Mike Gottschau

    I would love to see this album done as a stage performance. I'm sure there are some super talented singers out there that could play the characters. Broadway, y'all motherfuckers best get on this!!!

  84. Metal Dude

    But I can't climb this mountain without you

  85. Manatchai Petmeechaikul

    i want to rape this band

  86. Jeans 83

    It's weird how I can listen to the full album for 5-10 spins, and then suddenly some songs I haven't taken much note of start to stand out - such as this one! Beautiful melodies. Love how the guitar leads flow with the vocal, and the solo ofc. xD

  87. Emanuele Bonifazi

    It's fantastic!!! Semplicemente inarrivabili!!! Trieste arrivo!!!

  88. Sébastien NORDMANN

    Dream Theater... What else ? magic song...

  89. RIFF DT

    Losing Faythe เลยเพลงนี้ 555

  90. Leyrann

    This is like my 5th time listening to the full album in a row (please feel bad for me for having so little time I need two weeks for that), and while I liked it as a whole from the beginning, I'm now starting to think "this song's really good" for nearly every single song...

    Bassan Karame

    They are amazingly good... it's not easy to get used to it, even more when you're used to their "typical" music.... but this is really a great masterpiece album. I just saw them performing this album live last Friday, and honestly, if I liked this album 7/10 before the concert, now I need more points to rate it 100/100.

  91. muslimin ahmed

    Waooo BEST

  92. Daniel Verberne

    Anyone think the 2:13 harmonic a little unnecessary, nitpicking here ...

    Jeans 83

    +Daniel Verberne haha, I have actually been thinking the same! It doesn't really fit in..

    Luka Orkibi

    +Daniel Verberne eh, i kinda like it, its pretty subtle anyway

    Fabricio P D Costa

    I really love it, one of the best details of the song, feels heavy and emotional

  93. Kay Dee

    That "and there's a reason now I see" part sounds like the chorus to Paper Roses

  94. Giorgos Charalampidis

    Petrucci smashed it

  95. robin jones

    its going to be a big hanky job in London so many metal fans in tears, I think there next lp should be death metal to give us a break

  96. Aleksandar Gospić

    What an amazing song! Whole album is just Astonishing! More and more I want them to play the entire album on tour :)

  97. Aleksandar Gospić

    What an amazing song! Whole album is just Astonishing! More and more I want them to play the entire album on tour :)
