                     A Thousand Years
                         by Sting


  *this melody played throughout verses

A thousand years, a thousand more
    Bbsus2                            Gm7sus4
A thousand times a million doors to eternity
I may have lived a thousand lives, a thousand times
    Bbsus2/Db                              Gm7sus4
An endless turning stairway climbs To a tower of souls
If it takes another thousand years, a thousand wars
      Bbsus2                               Gm7sus4
The towers rise to numberless floors in space
I could shed another million tears, a million breaths
     Bbsus2Db                             Gm7sus4
A million names but only one true face
A million roads, a million fears
    Bbsus2                                Gm7sus4
A million suns, ten million years of uncertainty
I could speak a million lies, a million songs
     Bbsus2/Db                                 Gm7sus4
A million rights, a million wrongs in this balance of time
But if there was a single truth, a single light
     Bbsus2                                 Gm7sus4
A single thought, a singular touch of grace
Then following this single point, this single flame
     Bbsus2/Db                          Gm7sus4
This single haunted memory of your face
     Fm    Bbsus2       Gm7sus4
I still   love          you,
    Fm      Bbsus2       Gm7sus4
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 these mysteries unfold themselves
Like galaxies in my head

On and on the mysteries unwind themselves

Eternities still unsaid

'Till you love me

   Fm                     Bbsus2                  Gmb5
