Favorite Albums of 2016

You knew how it felt to feel invisible
Music calmed your soul, just like a drug
Remember, Bug?
(Dream Theater – A New Beginning)

Here I am, don’t be afraid
I will never let you slip away
Look my way, you must be brave
Find the strength to live for one more day
I will keep from losing Faythe
I will ask for grace, and hope we find a way
Like a candles dying flame
With forgiving eyes
She starts to drift away
(Dream Theater – Losing Faythe)
