A Thousand Years
oleh: Sting



A thousand years, a thousand more, A thousand times a million doors to eternity I may have lived a thousand lives, a thousand timesAn 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 spaceI could shed another million tears, a million breaths,A million names but only one truth to face
A million roads, a million fearsA 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 timeBut if there was a single truth, a single lightA single thought, a singular touch of graceThen following this single point , this single flame,The single haunted memory of your face
I still love you I still want youA 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 landsOr 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 youA thousand times the mysteries unfold themselves Like galaxies in my headOn and on the mysteries unwind themselves Eternities still unsaid'Til you love me
