STING lyrics : "The Book Of My Life"


Let me watch by the fire and remember my days
And it may be a trick of the firelight

But the flickering pages that trouble my sight
Is a book I'm afraid to write


It's the book of my days, it's the book of my life
And it's cut like a fruit on the blade of a knife
And it's all there to see as the section reveals

There's some sorrow in every life

If it reads like a puzzle, a wandering maze

Then I won't understand 'til the end of my days
I'm still forced to remember,
Remember the words of my life


There are promises broken and promises kept
Angry words that were spoken, when I should have wept

There's a chapter of secrets, and words to confess
If I lose everything that I possess
There's a chapter on loss and a ghost who won't die

There's a chapter on love where the ink's never dry
There are sentences served in a prison I built out of lies.


Though the pages are numbered
I can't see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no-one can read

In the book of my life

There's a chapter on fathers a chapter on sons

There are pages of conflicts that nobody won
And the battles you lost and your bitter defeat,
There's a page where we fail to meet


There are tales of good fortune that couldn't be planned
There's a chapter on god that I don't understand

There's a promise of Heaven and Hell but I'm damned if I see

Though the pages are numbered

I can't see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no-one can read
In the book of my life


Now the daylight's returning
And if one sentence is true

All these pages are burning
And all that's left is you


Though the pages are numbered
I can't see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no-one can read

In the book of my life
