lyrics

Nine Thousand Years

Nine thousand years singin’ at your door
Nine thousand years kneelin’ on your floor
Nine thousand years longin’ in this land
Nine thousand years to feel the comfort of your hand
Nine thousand years blowin’ on this horn
Nine thousand years waitin’ to be born
Nine thousand years weepin’ by the sea
Nine thousand years do you hear me, do you hear me…?
I stumbled on the house of my Beloved
My chariot shattered & torn
There’s nothing in this world left to covet
Show yourself to me - I’m at your door.

Nine thousand years tending this desire
Nine thousand years sitting silent in your fire
Nine thousand years aching to be seen
Nine thousand years in someone else’s dream
Nine thousand years outside your windowpane
Nine thousand years beat about by the hurricane
Nine thousand years a-waiting on your grace
Nine thousand years a stranger to this place
Nine thousand years standing here without a prayer
Nine thousand years let me touch your hair, let me touch your hair…
I stumbled…

Nine thousand years kneelin’ on the road
Nine thousand years tryin’ to break the Old Code
Nine thousand years without a clue or a trace
Nine thousand years the memory of your face
Nine thousand years humorin’ this beast
Nine thousand years of hunger at the feast
Nine thousand years cryin’ for water at the well
Nine thousand years sellin’ souvenirs of hell
I stumbled…

Nine thousand years of longin’ for your kiss
Nine thousand years of this & this & this & this
Nine thousand years of witnessing the breath
Nine thousand years of life after death after life after death
Nine thousand years of burnin’ on this pyre
Nine thousand years of sufferin’ killers & liars
Nine thousand years of drivin’ out these stains
Nine thousand years of chantin’ your name, chantin’ your name…
