I have been listening to Dream Theater - Through Her Eyes (Live Scenes from New York) for many years, but I was never able to understand what James LaBrie says just before the song starts.

Here below is the Spotify link to the full song:


And here's a short audio recording of that portion:


What does James LaBrie say at the 0:23 minute in Spotify OR 0:17 minute in the audio recording?

    Yes I thought about this. But in the YouTube version they cut what James said :( – aaaaa May 11 at 17:52

  • That makes sense because before there was the solo by the singer (Theresa) but still so hard to recognise the words! This is a breakthrough. have been listening those mysterious words since 2004 x_x – aaaaa May 11 at 19:51
  • at the end of the full track he also acknowledges John Petrucci..but during the whole live he never did it for Mike Portnoy...such a shame mike eventually left the group :( mike portnoy on the drums! – aaaaa May 11 at 20:03
  • Took some research, I didn't know who Theresa was until today. I have a few songs by Dream Theater, but I prefer TOOL. Maynard Keenan is hilarious and awesome. Also 2004 seems like ancient history because I was only two years old lol. Most of my music is from before my time. – Micah Windsor May 12 at 2:07
