Peta @ Sac City College Library
3rd Floor

Sometimes….. there are those
Solitary moments.....
Serene seconds.....
Looking out a window.....
Wondering about life.....
All its endless strife.....
When I feel so aged.....
Even so ancient...
An ancient warrior!

All these lifetimes of
Wars without end.....
One after another......

Occasional victories.....
To soothe for the next war!

A Captain at my desk pondering..... plotting..... planning.....
Looking far out at the vast sea.....
Eyes out for a humane horizon.

As if..... I have been through all this....
Before... In another time..... Another place..... In another situation.....
Does it show?

Lyrics: A Thousand Years
Words by sting, music by sting and kipper

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
