A Thousand Years - Christina Perri

The Experience: And all along I believed I would find you. Time has brought your heart to me...
Believing and waiting for the right person to come and fill your heart. It may take some time, but you will find yourself fulfilled when true love finally arrives.



Music video: this song came out with the final "Twilght saga" movie, that moment when Bella Swan and Edward Cullen where finally together forever. That is why the video shows scenes from their wedding, the  moment they have both been waiting for. All this with Christina Perri singing surrounded by candles that blow out, maybe symbolizing the moment of waiting for the right one to come.

Meaning of A Thousand Years: It´s not easy to wait for the right person to be in love with. Sometimes we feel that he may never arrive or we fall for the first one that comes our way. And one of the questions that we always ask ourselves is, how will I know?
It´s important to get to know our own heart and to find out what we are looking for in the person we love. Only then we will be able to trust and truly find the one person made for me.

Ask yourself: Am I in a hurry to find the right person to love? What am I really looking for?



LYRICS:

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

I have died every day
waiting for you
Darlin' 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

I have died every day
Waiting for you
Darlin' 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

I have died every day
Waiting for you
Darlin' 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
