Lyrics

Heartbeats 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 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

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 that 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 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

This song is perfect for my fiance and I..... we have had one of the longest engagements (14 years)... feels like a thousand.... as soon as I first heard this song on the radio, I started crying because I always listen to the words before I even justify loving a song.

Faleasha says...
I Love this song so much! We selected Ribbon in the Sky for me to walk down the isle...but this one is a close 2nd choice right now. Definitely a pre-wedding selection!

I feel like swaying across the dance floor with my soon-to-be-husband to this song. I love it! Most definitely #1 at my list.

My husband and I are renewing our vows in September for our 20 year anniversary. Our daughter is going to sing this song for our 1st dance or might have her sing it while I walk. Such a pretty song.

Im walking down the aisle to this song. I let my FI listen to it and now he plays it all the time...it's so sweet!

I LOVE THIS SONG!! I will probably be walking down the aisle to this song! One of the most poetic love songs I've ever heard.

Tiva says...
I can't believe how many love this song. Me too!! Now just to figure out when it will play :)

Anonymous says...
I knew I wanted to be played at our weddings the first time I heard it on the radio... but that better be a long aisle for a bride to walk down with this being nearly a 5 min song... May have to dub it somehow....

Bethany says...
I have heard other versions and still love this the best. When my fiance took me to see Breaking Dawn Part 1 and this song was being played during the credits he was the one that said this needed tobe played at our wedding. Am deciding between the Bride's Enterance or the Recessional.

Tia says...
Using this song for when I walk down the aisle, shortened of course

Megan says...
I wanted to use this one, but made the mistake of telling my fiancee that it's from Twilight. I don't think I'm going to win this one. :( I LOVE this song - cry every time I hear it and think of us!

Iris says...
This is the perfect song!!!!

Hannah says...
It's our song! so it will be our first dance!

Jennifer says...
perfect song to walk down the aisle to

Jennifer says...
This would be a wonderful first dance song, but I'd prefer the instrumental piano/cello cover for an entrance song.

Amanda says...
I hate that this song is from Twilight but I adore Christina Perri and I adore this song. Won't be our first dance but definitely will be used.

Christina says...
I FOUND THIS SONG FROM THE TWLIGHT SOUND TRACK AND I WAS IFFY ABOUT IT BEING THE SONG FOR ME TO WALK DOWN THE AISLE TO THE INSTRUMENTAL WOULD BE A GREAT THING FOR THE ENTRANCE SO IM GOING TO HAVE TO FIND IT AND THEN IM TRYING TO FIND SWEETEST LOVE BY ROBIN THICKE FOR MY FIRST SONG I LOVE THAT ONE TOO IF YOU GUYS HAVENT HEARD IT YOU SHOULD LOOK IT UP ITS A WONDERFUL SONG

Ellen says...
I LOVE this song, but I love it even more in the instrumental version by Piano Guys. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgaTQ5-XfMM

Private User says...
Seriously - the Piano Guys version is so gorgeous! That is the version I want to walk down the aisle to! So pretty!

Alisa S. says...
I cried the first time I heard this song. Disappointed when I found out it was used in the Twilight movie, but thanks for the info on The Piano Guys. Torn whether to use acoustic or vocal version now, but definitely walking down the aisle to this!

elzabeth says...
I just fell in love with this song, I'm going to use it for my last dance, the song to me carries such power and with so much love that's what I want my guest to remember...because that's exactly how I feel about my future husband.

Jenny says...
My fiance actually chose this song. I had remembered hearing it when I watched twilight, but once I listened to it again I knew it was the song. We will be dancing our first dance to A Thousand Years, and two of our close friends will be playing the song on their guitars as everyone walks down the aisle. I cry every time..

Janine says...
This song makes me feel so strong and emotional. If I use it for our first dance, I will probably cry!

Elaine says...
My FH and I love the Twilight Saga and plan on using this for our First Dance song but the Breaking Dawn Pt. 2 version.

Lily says...
I love this song! It brings tears to my eyes every time I listen to it...I cannot imagine on our wedding day; I better wear waterproof mascara :-)

When I saw Breaking Dawn II, I heard it and realized this was our song! Although I'm not sure if to use this one or Part 2 version...

Becca says...
I sang this at the bar where my fiance works (also where we met!) and I dedicated it to him. Right afterwards as we danced to the next song performed he proposed right there...no ring yet...but it was a PERFECT moment! So, I will DEFINATELY be using this as the song we either 1st dance to or the walk down the aisle! Totally LOVE this song! It will always be special to us!

Sheena says...
If you love this song, check out "The Piano Guys" playing the instrumental version, its just a piano and a cello. Thats what Im walking down the isle to!

Haley says...
We chose this song as our first dance song! Love it!!

mrs.stoosh says...

I am using this song as my bridal entrance song but I am using a piano version by The Piano Guys.

Check out the Piano/Cello cover on You tube. It's so beautiful.

Becky says...
walking down the aisle to this. so in love with it. makes me cry and i know it will make me teary eyed as i walk down the aisle to the man of my dreams

Lisa says...
I actually like Part 2 more than Part 1. I knew immediately after hearing it, that was the song I was walking down the isle too :)

CW says...
~ I was reluctant when I found out it was written for Twilight, but when I heard the instrumental version by the Piano Guys, I changed my mind. It was breathtaking. When it was go-time at the aisle - surging adrenaline and all nerves, the song began and I could hardly keep my composure. The song made my walk down the aisle magic. I loved it! ~

Michelle says...
The first time I heard this was in Twilight and the words brought me to tears. I knew it would be the first dance when we decided to get married! It will be a beautiful waltz if I can get throug it without tears on Sept 28!

Sheila says...
I love love love this song. now to get the fiance to like it to. he may not like how its from twilight but maybe ill leave that part out. good luck to me

This is the song I am walking down the aisle to. So excited!

Gilbert says...
This is going to be our first dance song.

Amanda says...
Does anybody know where you can get the Piano Guys sheet music for their version of this song? I'm having live people playing for my ceremony when I walk down the aisle and LOVE the Piano Guy's version so much better!

CHRISTINE says...
Cryed like a baby this is going to be the song i walk down the isle to we have been together for 10 years ♥

Ngozi says...
This is one of my favorite song. I thought this was going to be my first dance but I decided to walk to the instrumental version of this song by The Piano Guys. It's such a beautiful song.

Lola says...
I'm absolutely OBSESSED with this song. I fell in love with it the minute I heard it in the Breaking Dawn movie. It was pretty much the moment I decided that this was going to be my entrance song! It fits my husband and I so perfectly! Beautiful song!

Michael says...
using song

Kelly says...
Definitely using this only the 2nd version :)

BR says...
It's a beautiful song and perfect to walk down the aisle or a first dance. However, I won't be choosing this because it reminds me of the Twilight movies. I really don't like the Twilight saga!

S2BMrsOlea says...
this is the song I picked for my aisle song!! :)

kalo says...
love this song

Wendy says...
I have searched for another song but no matter what I come back to this one, it's perfect.

Lora says...
I didn't know the song was from Twilight when I first heard it, and I'm just not going to worry about it. This will be our first dance song. I'm in my late 40's, and this is my second marriage. I feel like it took a long time to find the right Mr. Right - though I always knew he was out there. And once met him, I felt like I had loved him all my life. So this song really spoke to me. I could tear up just thinking about it. I'm such a sap! Looking forward to that dance on April 5, 2014. Congrats to all my fellow brides-to-be!

amanda says...
I think it will be my bridal entrance song at my wedding. Very pretty.

Richell says...
This is something that will have to be our first dance....I began reading the lyrics and in the middle of the first paragraph I began crying. This is very beautiful.

Kayla says...
BEST ONE NO DOUBT

Laura says...
I absolutely love the song by Christina Perri regardless of whether it's from Twilight or not, but I just listened to the cover by The Piano Guys and that's my entire processional and my walk down the aisle since it is so long of a song. I'm so thrilled that I looked at all these comments and saw the link for the cover version!

Mia says...
I didn't see the movie, but as soon as I heard it, I immediately decided that this is the song I want for the future!

Ruby says...
I'm definitely using this song to walk down the aisle, I think I will also surprise my fiance and not tell him which song I choose! =) I just can't decide if I love the lyrical version better or the instrumental from The Piano Guys!!?? Lol.. Decisions

Alethia&James says...
This is the song that I will be walking down the aisle to, and our first dance on 12/13/14

Gina says...
using this as our first dance song.

caprisha says...
This is going to be the song when I walk down the isle.

Sara says...
I will be walking down the aisle to this song performed by a string quartet, and then our first dance will be a thousand years part 2 with the duet :) We've know each other for over 9 years and have been together a good portion of that time, and this song fits perfect for us :)
