  *this melody played throughout verses

    Fm
A thousand years, a thousand more
    Bbsus2                            Gm7sus4
A thousand times a million doors to eternity
                   Fm/Ab
I may have lived a thousand lives, a thousand times
    Bbsus2/Db                              Gm7sus4
An endless turning stairway climbs To a tower of souls
                      Fm
If it takes another thousand years, a thousand wars
      Bbsus2                               Gm7sus4
The towers rise to numberless floors in space
                       Fm/Ab
I could shed another million tears, a million breaths
     Bbsus2Db                             Gm7sus4
A million names but only one true face
     Fm
A million roads, a million fears
    Bbsus2                                Gm7sus4
A million suns, ten million years of uncertainty
                   Fm/Ab
I could speak a million lies, a million songs
     Bbsus2/Db                                 Gm7sus4
A million rights, a million wrongs in this balance of time
                     Fm
But if there was a single truth, a single light
     Bbsus2                                 Gm7sus4
A single thought, a singular touch of grace
                     Fm/Ab
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

An easy progression for an acoustic version:
Am G F Em again and again.
