A Thousand Years – Sting

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

3 O?clock Shot – Sting

Everyone I know is lonely
My God?s so far away
And my heart belongs to no one
So now sometimes I pray
Please take this space between us
And fill it up some way
I?ve been waiting for my brothers
Since fucking Christmas day

There?s a song that everyone?s heard
Let me hear it, make me a part
Songs everyone?s heard
Let me hear it, make me a part

Nothing seems to matter
To no one anymore
They say my world is shattered
I just did it on the floor
It won?t go no further
It is here I make my stand
If you say my life is precious
When you held it in your hand

There?s a song that everyone?s heard
Let me hear it, make me a part
Songs everyone?s heard
Let me hear it, make me a part

There?s a song that everyone?s heard
Let me hear it, make me a part
Songs everyone?s heard
Let me hear it, make me a part

Take Me To The Sunshine – Sting

I’ve been working too hard at the office all year
I’ve been saving all my days for a break
And I’ve got to get away with my baby for a time
If it’s just for my sanity’s sake

Nothing but work and never to play
Make Jack a dull boy or so they say
And nothing in the world gonna make me stay
I’ve just got to get away for a day

Oh the smog in the city is clogging up my head
And the noise of the traffic and the poison lead
Too many people I must confess
I’m looking for the cure of terminal stress

Take me to the sunshine
Take me to the sun

It’s a perfect paradise and it ain’t no trick
You can walk, you can run, play golf ’til you’re sick
Swim all day, you can dance all night
You can ever fall in love if you’re feeling right

The surf will roar and the birds will sing
And the warm wind sighs as you practice your swing
And the cares of the world will fade away as you
Watch the sun setting on a golden bay

They say that modern man needs to find himself
And what’s bad for his spirit is bad for his health
And when the world’s used up and there’s nowhere else
You’ll realize Mother Nature is the Commonwealth

Take me to the sunshine
Take me to the sun
Take me to the sun

Take me to the sunshine
Take me to the sun
Take me to the sun

I’ve been working too hard at the office all year
I’ve been saving all my days for a break
And I’ve got to get away with my baby for a time
If it’s for my sanity’s sake

Saint Augustine In Hell – Sting

If somebody up there likes me somebody up there cares
Deliver me from evil save me from these wicked snares
Not into temptation, not to cliffs of fall
On to revelation, and lesson for us all
She walked into the room on the arm of my best friend
I knew whatever happened our friendship would end
Chemical reaction, desire at first sight
Mystical attraction, turned out all my lights

The minute I saw her face, the second I caught her eye
The minute I touched the flame I knew it would never die

I don’t know if it’s pain or pleasure that I seek
My flesh was all too willing, my spirit guide was weak
I was deadly certain his thoughts for me weren’t kind
A switchblade in his pocket, murder on his mind
Blessed St. Theresa the whore of Babylon
Madonna and my mother all rolled into one
You’ve got to understand me, I’m not a piece of wood
Francis of Assisi could never be this good

The less I need the more I get
Make me chaste but not just yet
It’s a promise or a lie I’ll repent before I die

The minute I saw her face, the second I caught her eye
The minute I touched the flame I knew it would never die
The minute I saw her face, the second I caught her eye
The minute I touched the flame I knew it would never die

Relax, have a cigar, make yourself at home. Hell is full of high court
judges, failed saints. We’ve got Cardinals, Archbishops, barristers,
certified accountants, music critics, they’re all here. You’re not
alone, you’re never alone. Not here you’re not. Okay, break’s over.

The less I need the more I get
Make me chaste but not just yet
It’s a promise or a lie I’ll repent before I die

The minute I saw her face, the second I caught her eye
The minute I touched the flame I knew it would never die
The minute I saw her face, the second I caught her eye
The minute I touched the flame I knew it would never die

Mad About You – Sting

A stone’s throw from Jerusalem
I walked a lonely mile in the moonlight
And through a million stars were shining
My heart was lost on a distant planet
That whirls around the April moon
Whirling in an arc of sadness
I’m lost without you
I’m lost without you
Though all my kingdoms turn to sand
And fall into the sea
I’m mad about you
I’m mad about you

And from the dark secluded valleys
I heard the ancient songs of sadness
But every step I thought of you
Every footstep only you
And every star a grain of sand
The leavings of a dried up ocean
Tell me, how much longer?
How much longer?

They say a city in the desert lies
The vanity of an ancient king
But the city lies in broken pieces
Where the wind howls and the vultures sing
These are the works of man
This is the sum of our ambition
It would make a prison of my life
If you became another’s wife
With every prison blown to dust
My enemies walk free
I’m mad about you
I’m mad about you

And I have never in my life
Felt more alone than I do now
Although I claim dominions over all I see
It means nothing to me
There are no victories
In all our histories, without love

A stone’s throw from Jerusalem
I walked a lonely mile in the moonlight
And through a million stars were shining
My heart was lost on a distant planet
That whirls around the April moon
Whirling in an arc of sadness
I’m lost without you
I’m lost without you
And though you hold the keys to ruin
Of everything I see
With every prison blown to dust,
My enemies walk free
Though all my kingdoms turn to sand
And fall into the sea
I’m mad about you
I’m mad about you

Mack The Knife – Sting

Oh, the shark has pretty teeth dear
And he shows ’em, pearly white
Just a jack knife has Macheath dear
And he keeps it way out of sight

When that shark bites with his teeth, dear
Scarlet billows begin to spread
Fancy gloves though has Macheath dear
So there’s never, never a trace of red

On the sidewalk, one Sunday morning
Lies a body, oozin’ life
Someone’s sneaking ’round the corner
Could that someone be Mack the Knife

From a tugboat, on the river going slow
A cement bag is dropping on down
You know that cement is for the weight dear
You can make a large bet Mackie’s back in town

My man Louis Miller, he split the scene babe
After drawing out all the bread from his stash
Now Macheath spends like a sailor
Do you suppose our boy, he’s done something rash

Old Satchmo, Louis Armstrong, Bobby Darrin
Did this song nice, Lady Ella too
They all sang it, with so much feeling
That Old Blue Eyes, he ain’t gonna add nothing new

But with his big band, jumping behind me
Swinging hard, Jack, I now I can’t lose
When I tell you, all about Mack the Knife babe
It’s an offer, you can never refuse

We got Patrick Williams, Bill Miller playing that piano
And this great big band, bringing up the rear
All the band cats, in this band now
They make the greatest sounds, you’re never gonna hear

Oh Sookie Taudry, Jenny Diver, Polly Peachum, Old Miss Lulu Brown


Hey the line forms, on the right dear
Now that Macheath’s back in town
You’d better lock your doors, and call the law
Because Macheath’s back in town
Oh, the poor shark,
Yes, the sweet shark,
It has big teeth
Buried deep.

Then there’s Macheath
With his big knife,
But it’s hidden
In his slip.

And this same shark,
This poor sweet shark,
It sheds red blood
When it bleeds.

Mackie Big Knife
Wears a white glove,
Pure in word and
Pure in deed.

Sunday morning
Lovely blue sky,
There’s a corpse stretched
On the Strand.

Who’s the man cruisin’
The corner?
Well, it’s Mackie,
Knife in hand.

Jenny Towler
Poor wee Jenny,
There they found her
Knife in breast.

Mackie’s wandering
On the West Pier
Hoping only
For the best.

Mind that fire burnt
All through Soho.
Seven kids dead
One old flower.

Hey there Mackie,
How is she cuttin’?
Have another
Hold your hour.

And those sweet babes
Under sixteen
Story goes that
Black and blue

For the price of
One good screwing
Mackie, Mackie
How could you?

For the price of
One good screwing
Mackie, Mackie
How could you?

Ma?ana – Sting

Desnuda eres tan simple como una de tus manos,
lisa, terrestre, minima, redonda, transparente,
tienes lineas de luna, caminos de manzana,
desnuda eres delgada como el trigo desnudo.

Desnuda eres azul como la noche en Cuba,
tienes enredaderas y estrellas en el pelo,
desnuda eres enorme y amarilla
como el verano en una iglesia de oro.

Desnuda eres pequena como una de tus unas,
curva, sutil, rosada hasta que nace el dia
y te metes en el subterraneo de mundo

como en un largo tunel de trajes de trabajos:
tu claridad se apaga, se viste, se deshoja
y otra vez vuelve a ser una mano desnuda

Gabriel’s Message – Sting

The Angel Gabriel from heaven came
His wings as drifted snow, his eyes as flames
“Oh hail” has said he to Holy Maiden Mary
(to holy mary)
Most highly favoured maid Gloria
(Most highly favoured maid Gloria)

Forknown a blessed mother thou shalt be
For generations loan and honnaly
Thy son shall be Imanuel th’as years forsawt =(forseen)
Most highly favoured maid Gloria
(Most highly favoured maid Gloria)

The gentle Mary neatly bowed the head
“To me, be as it pleaseth God” she said
“My soul shall whole and magnify this holy maid”
Most highly favoured maid Gloria
(Most highly favoured maid Gloria)

Of her Imanuel, the Christ was crossed
His Bethlehem all honor Christmas ghost
As everyone through out the world will Heaven save
Most highly favoured maid Gloria
(Most highly favoured maid Gloria)
