Still

Updated: Apr 8


I heard someone laugh like her 

yesterday, 

thinking that was not 

possible. 


She left me, 

still... 

her sound 

brings me great joy.

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


Ludovico Einaudi - Dietro Casa
