A Thousand Years

Artist: Christina Perri
Song Title: A Thousand Years




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

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


My current musical obsession – first heard via the radio and not in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part 1), in case you were wondering – that somehow ended up becoming a song I'll always look back on and listen to with great fondness, thanks to this wonderful coincidence:

p/s: I love the hundreds of flickering tea lights in the Twilight music video so... if you didn't click Play before, go do it now! =p

- Haha. You wanna watch Twilight or you wanna watch my wedding video? If it's the latter, I'll embed YouTube video here this afternoon. =)

– Yeah, I'm really glad this song was chosen, too. Some people have said it's kinda morbid for a wedding song but what they don't get is that it's relevant to OUR story. Cos hey, we've done the long distance thing for A DECADE!! It sure feels like a thousand years when you're in it for such a long time. Plus, some parts of the lyrics speak of the uncertainty we felt when we were younger. To love and be in different places?? Can this even work out? Do we love each other enough to survive this journey on faith and love alone?? But step by step, we did it. And every day was a step closer to our lifetime together. And yes, we died every day waiting till we could begin and end our days together. =)
