[D]  Looking up from [Dsus4]where I [D]stand
I [D]see the [Dsus4]vapor [D]trail
Of a [D]jet plane in the [C]skyy[D]yyy
[D]  Here the wheel is [Dsus4]in my [D]hand
But there's [D]no wind [Dsus4]in my [D]sails
And [D]life is drifting [C]byyy[D]yyy

This next parts awesome (reminds me of Dead Or Alive by Bon Jovi =P)
Note that guitars 1 and 2 are in unison, therefore I will tab the part they're playing

Both Guitars: (they're strumming and picking on this part)

My breeze will come

(Play the same part over these lyrics)

Muse you satisfy my soul
Keep my warm while the cold world
Guards the gate

Now the chorus =D
Please note that the guitar are once again in unison =P
Oh and...only strum the chords over the words, the parts in between the words
you play all down strokes

Waiting for our time

Now comes the bridge, and this is also where I lose the electric cuz he's off on
some other octave doing God knows what, I'm just playin =P...he's playing roughly
the same thing as acoustic only a few octaves higher...sounds like maybe around
5th fret or so.

[D] Here tonight
[D] I lie awake and [Dsus4]watch you [C]dream

Keyboard plays something like this at "dream"

G-------------------------------------------- ( I'm not quite sure
D-------------------------------------------- about this part...but I am sure
A-------------------------------------------- its there cuz I've listened to
E-------------------------------------------- the song roughly 50 times =P)

[D] Under the light
[D] Of the moon I [Dsus4]wonder just how
C D Dsus4 C (Keyboard plays the same thing on this line)
Far we've been and where we'll be
[Em]  When the sun comes up
[C] Will this be our [D]date with destin[G]y?

Now only acoustic plays until electric comes in

[Dsus4]      [D]  I'm [G]search[D]ing [D]

I'm [G]yearn[D]ing

And thats it! Not too hard eh? I know there's probably some place where I messed
up at. I also know this is a new song, so if there's corrections that need to be
made would please be so kind as to let me know and give me the corrections. Thank
you so much. Oh and if anyone has the Styx song "These Are The Times" from the
CYCLORAMA album tabbed, could you please send it to me via e-mail. Thanks, I'm
dying to learn it. I'm like a die hard Styx fan here =P

ROCK ON!!

P.S. here's the lyrics

Waiting For Our Time
by Styx

Looking up from where I stand
I see the vapor trail
Of a jet plane in the sky

Here the wheel is in my hand
But there's no wind in my sails
And life is drifting by

Still I hold on and wait
I know it's not too late
And my breeze will come

Muse you satisfy my soul
Keep me warm while the
Cold world guards the gate

I'm searching
I'm wondering
I'm yearning
Waiting for our time to come

I'm searching
I'm wondering
I'm yearning
Waiting for our time to come

Your love has kept my dream alive
A vision of my life
With you here by my side

Every forward step I take
Every moment I'm awake
I feel your love inside

So close I feel it in my bones
I know I'm not alone as I climb this wall
But I, sometimes I get so high
I just want to live, love
And taste it all

I'm searching
I'm wondering
I'm yearning
Waiting for our time to come
I'm searching
I'm wondering
I'm yearning
Waiting for our time

Here tonight
I lie awake and watch you dream
Under the light of the moon
I wonder just how far we've been
And where we'll be
When the sun comes up
Will this be our date with destiny

I'm searching
I'm wondering
I'm yearning
Waiting for our time to come

I'm searching
I'm wondering
I'm yearning
Waiting for our time to come

I'm searching
I'm wondering
I'm yearning
Waiting for our time to come

I'm searching
I'm wondering
I'm yearning
Waiting for our time

And I'm waiting
