Lyrics and Music by Christina Perri and David Hodges


Intro: Bb | Bb F/A | Gm7 | Gm7 Bbadd9
       Eb | Eb | Bb/F | Bbsus2/F

Ebsus2
Heart beats fast,
            Bb/D
Colours and promises,
          Gm7
How to be brave;
          F/A       Bb    Ebsus2
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall?
                 Bb/D
But watching you stand alone,
          Gm7
All of my doubt
         F/A   Bbmaj    Cm7
Suddenly goes away, somehow…

 Cm7   Cm7sus2 Gm F
   One step closer.

Chorus:
     Bb                    Bbadd9  Bbsus2/A
     I have died every day waiting for you.
     Gm7                               F
     Darling, don’t be afraid - I have loved you
           Ebadd9
     For a thousand years,
                             Bbsus4/F Bb/F F
     And I’ll love you for a thousand more.

Instrumental: Ebadd9 F | Ebsus2

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…
          
   Cm7 F    Gm Gm7 F
   One step closer.

Chorus:
     I have died every day 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. 

Instrumental: Bb | Bbmaj Bbmaj/A | Gm7 | Gm9 F6
              Eb Eb6 | Eb Ebadd9 | Bb/F | Fsus4 F

 Cm7        Gm F
   One step closer,
 Cm7   F    Gm F
   One step closer.

Chorus:
     I have died every day 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.
