A Thousand Years – Music Monday

Music Monday time again.  I am choosing A Thousand Years by Christina Perri.  I loved her first song that got big, Jar of Hearts, and in the past week or two have discovered many new songs by her and it all reaffirms the fact that I LOVE her music!!  I chose A Thousand Years for 2 reasons – 1) my partner put a link to this song on my page this past Thursday, and I love her with all my heart!!!  2) I have succumbed to the teenager craze/cult that is Twilight and this song is on the new movie, Breaking Dawn, which is to be released in November. (BTW I am on Team Edward, much to Jeanna’s dismay who is on Team Jacob.)

I am also adding the lyrics here for those of you who are not able to view the video (outside of the USA as it is her official music video and they’re weird about that stuff?!!), but the quality of the other video’s weren’t good.

A Thousand Years lyrics

(Verse 1)
Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How do 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

(Pre-chorus)
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

(Verse 2)
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

(Pre-chorus)
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

(Pre-chorus x2)
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

  1. Here on the Alexa Hop! Following you on email newsletter and commenting on this and another post.

    Thanks for sharing this beautiful music! I know what you mean about falling for the Twilight cult – like a train wreck you just can’t look away from.
    We’re Team Steve, ourselves though. (as in Blue’s Clues)
    Come on over and visit.

  2. Wow, you are a long way from Jo’burg! Like night from day in MN…. I love the song you featured, so pretty, and when I saw the blog I thought I would come and make you a bit jealous and say I am off to Capetown in about a week! You are from such a lovely country… Will stop in Durban to visit friends and eat my way through SA! Glad to know you!
