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,
This 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
