*this melody played throughout verses A thFmousand years, a thousand more A thBsus2ousand times a million doors to etGm7sus4ernity I may have lived a Fm/Athousand lives, a thousand times An eBsus2ndless Cturning stairway climbs To a towGm7sus4er of souls If it takes another thFmousand years, a thousand wars The toBsus2wers rise to numberless floors in spaGm7sus4ce I could shed another miFm/Allion tears, a million breaths A milBsus2lion nDames but only one true face Gm7sus4 A milFmlion roads, a million fears A miBsus2llion suns, ten million years of uncerGm7sus4tainty I could speak a milFm/Alion lies, a million songs A milBsus2lion riCghts, a million wrongs in this balaGm7sus4nce of time But if there was a siFmngle truth, a single light A sinBsus2gle thought, a singular touch of grace Gm7sus4 Then following this sFm/Aingle point, this single flame This Bsus2single Chaunted memory of your face Gm7sus4 I stiFmll lBsus2ove Gm7sus4you, I stFmill waBsus2nt yGm7sus4ou 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
