a thousand years lyrics – christina perri

heart beats fast
colors and promises
how to be brave
how can i love when i’m afraid to fall
but watching you stand alone
all of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow

one step closer

[chorus:]
i have died everyday waiting for you
darling don’t be afraid i have loved you
for a thousand years
i’ll love you for a thousand more

time stands still
beauty in all she is
i will be brave
i will not let anything take away
what’s standing in front of me
every breath
every hour has come to this

one step closer

[chorus:]
i have died everyday waiting for you
darling don’t be afraid i have loved you
for a thousand years
i’ll love you for a thousand more

and all along i believed i would find you
time has brought your heart to me
i have loved you for a thousand years
i’ll love you for a thousand more

one step closer
one step closer

[chorus:]
i have died everyday waiting for you
darling don’t be afraid i have loved you
for a thousand years
i’ll love you for a thousand more

and all along i believed i would find you
time has brought your heart to me
i have loved you for a thousand years
i’ll love you for a thousand more
