# XCV - Duetos fabulosos - Sting & Mariza


(I still love you, Paredes, 30/Jun/06)


Quem me conhece sabe que impliquei, há muitos anos atrás, com uma resposta do Sting a respeito de Timor, quando este ainda era "indonésio".
Deixei de gostar de ouvi-lo.
No entanto, não deixei de gostar das suas músicas. E quando eram outros a cantá-las, gostava mais...
Acho-me menos resistente ao dito cujo, nestes tempos de hoje. E gosto deste duo, com a Mariza, a propósito dos Jogos Olímpicos de Atenas, disco de 2004.

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 fortunes child to judge anothers crimes
Or wear this pilgrims cloak, or be a common thief
Ive 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

Deixa lá, não guardes rancor ao moçoilo, que compõe, toca e canta tão bem...
E toda a gente se pode arrepender, não é mesmo?... E se pensarmos bem, o arrependimento talvez seja um dos sentimentos mais solitários e subtis.
Penso eu de que...
