A Thousand Years (The Light Room Version)

Artist: Christina Perri (Feat. Steve Kazee)
Song Title: A Thousand Years (The Light Room Version)



Christina Perri performs her song "A Thousand Years"
in an exclusive recording session live at The Fortress in
Los Angeles, CA for The Live Room on The Warner Sound.


The day we met, frozen I held my breath
Right from the start, I knew that I'd found a home for my...
Heart beats fast, colours 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

Mmmm...
Woo ooo...

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


Not a big fan of Perri's lazy drawl in this version but still, it's hypnotic and totally bewitching all the same. Love the acoustic touch max. Was nice that she included the first two lines, too. I wonder why they weren't in the original version of the song. Hmmm... To be understood when I finally watch Breaking Dawn Part 2?
