 than nothing.  If you have corrections, please post them
 in a nice civilized manner.  No flames, they're a waste.)

I turn my face to the sun, close my eyes, let my defences down, all those wounds that I can't get unwound. I let my past get too fast, no time to pause, if I could slow it all down, like some captain whose ship runs aground, I can wait till the tide comes around. Chorus: "Time stand still. I'm not looking back, but I wanna look around me now. Time stand still, see more of the people and the places that surround me (Play riff one) now

A B ??? (Play riff 5 4 times) (The rest of the song is taken from the parts that come after the slow part of the chorus. They are easy to figure out, mostly E A and B chords, and I am too tired to type them in) From: (Phil Hodges) Subject: TAB: Time Stand Still (Rush) I got the TAB for "Time Stand Still" off the ftp site and noticed that the intro was heinously incorrect. I realize the person who wrote it said it wasn't 100% correct, and I am posting the correction in a civilized manner :) I'll post more Rush TAB if there are enough people interested. There's a pretty good-size collection going at the site, and most of it's correct that I've seen, and I want to add to it as much as I can. Alex Lifeson is my favorite guitarist, and I know how to play most of Rush's tunes.
