Sting - A Thousand Years - [link]

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

Oh...I forgot what day it was today.
My days are a bit out of control.
I was away on vacation/holiday for 2
weeks and it is all crazy for me now. :rofl:

Once again Joe, you created a beauty :iconwinnerplz: the lyrics are very heart felt as well and soulful. I believe that no matter where life takes us, we unfold our own truth. We decide on our destination because we have total control on where we steer our ship's. Some people use love as a shield and others cling onto a higher being whether that is God, mother earth itself, or a animal spirit. Regardless, it shouldn't matter because we all hold a truth inside of us. We all keep a single faith that either fades or becomes eternal in our hearts. Great piece Joe :iconforyouplz:
