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
