STING


A Thousand Years Lyrics

A thousand years a thousand more
A thousand times a million doors to eternity
I may have lived a thousand lives a thousand times
An endless turning stairway climbs
To a tower of souls
If it takes another thousand years a thousand wars
The towers rise to numberless floors in space
I could shed another million tears a million breaths
A million names but only one truth to face

A million roads a million fears
A million suns, ten million years of uncertainty
I could speak a million lies, a million songs,
A million rights, a million wrongs in this balance of time
But if there was a single truth, a single light
A single thought, a singular touch of grace
Then following this single point, this single flame,
The single haunted memory of your face

I still love you
I still want you
A thousand times the mysteries unfold themselves
Like galaxies in my head

I may be numberless, i may be innocent
I may know many things, i may be ignorant
Or i could ride with kings and conquer many lands
Or win this world at cards and let it slip my hands
I could be cannon food, destroyed a thousand times
Reborn as fortune's child to judge another's crimes
Or wear this pilgrim's cloak, or be a common thief
I've kept this single faith, i have but one belief

I still love you
I still want you
A thousand times the mysteries unfold themselves
Like galaxies in my head
On and on the mysteries unwind themselves
Eternities still unsaid
'til you love me
