Waiting for Our Time  Styx

Title: Waiting For Our Time
Artist: Styx
Album: Cyclorama
Year: 2003
Tuning: Standard
Ok, this song is absolutely beautiful and its off their new album "CYCLORAMA"
If you have the album I would appreciate it if you could clarify for me what the
hell is so signifigant about the damn carrot. (The album designs that Styx have
had in the past usually relate to the album Title, and the title usually relates
to the album theme) So yea the frikkin carrot has me stumped =P Oh and good luck
singing this unless you can sing Tommy Shaw good. His voice sounds high like a
frikkin girl, but it's all good. Anyway Tommy has lead vocals on this, and he's
playin the acoustic, and JY (My favorite Styx member) is on the electric, rockin
his ass of like he always does, cuz lets face it: Tommy's tight, but JY kicks ass
and takes names and thats all there is to it =P. Anyhow, here's this beautiful
Styx masterpiece.

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

(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
Both Guitars: (2x)d=down stroke s=strum

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"

 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]

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
