Whispers on the Wind is the thirtieth track from Dream Theater's thirteenth studio album The Astonishing.


Gabriel wishes he could use his gift to bring back Faythe, but he is unable to sing after screaming, so he resigns himself to the fact that he will lose Faythe forever.


If I still had something left
I'd surely use my gift
To give her one more breath
To see her smile again
And yet my gift is gone
Along with all her dreams
It vanished with a scream
My fragile voice has all but disappeared
I've nothing left to give
The words I wish I'd said
Just whispers on the wind
And now all hope is dead
