Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Thousand Years  Sting



A th[Fm]ousand years, a thousand more
A th[Bbsus2]ousand times a million doors to et[Gm7sus4]ernity
I may have lived a [Fm/Ab]thousand lives, a thousand times
An e[Bbsus2/Db]ndless turning stairway climbs To a tow[Gm7sus4]er of souls
If it takes another th[Fm]ousand years, a thousand wars
The to[Bbsus2]wers rise to numberless floors in spa[Gm7sus4]ce
I could shed another mi[Fm/Ab]llion tears, a million breaths
A mil[Bbsus2Db]lion names but only one true face    [Gm7sus4]
A mil[Fm]lion roads, a million fears
A mi[Bbsus2]llion suns, ten million years of uncer[Gm7sus4]tainty
I could speak a mil[Fm/Ab]lion lies, a million songs
A mil[Bbsus2/Db]lion rights, a million wrongs in this bala[Gm7sus4]nce of time
But if there was a si[Fm]ngle truth, a single light
A sin[Bbsus2]gle thought, a singular touch of grace [Gm7sus4]
Then following this s[Fm/Ab]ingle point, this single flame
This [Bbsus2/Db]single haunted memory of your face [Gm7sus4]
I sti[Fm]ll   l[Bbsus2]ove          [Gm7sus4]you,
I st[Fm]ill   wa[Bbsus2]nt          y[Gm7sus4]ou
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
