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 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 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

    Ahm
    for me its about a girl who is afraid of falling in love and afraid of being hurt
    but when the guy showed her what a wonderful feeling to love some one freely... She stand up and face up her fears and love the guy... And she will do everything to make that guy happy... And she will not let anyone destroy their love to each other... And he will give anything to that guy even if it means waiting for the guy all her life... Cause her love wont fade away..

    Isn't this a wedding song from a movie? I think that a girl is waiting for her love and she will love him forever and she will never let him go. I think the guy knows how much she loves him. No matter how long the wait and now that they've seen him/her, it was worth the wait.

    It's about this girl named bella. She is in love with this guy called edward. He is a vampire. But bella still likes him and is not afraid. But now they are engaged to get married. Bella is unsure if she is doing the right thing. She is nervous. There is also another guy called jacob. He likes bella. But when he finds out that edward and bella are getting married he is furious. Thats why bella is unsure. In the end they get married. Bella really wanted to become a vampire. Edward said they get married. That is one reason why she married him but she loved him very much too

    Well that's i think that the meaning is cos it is from twilight. If i got anything wrong plz correct me cos i haven't seen the movie yet it's just me guessing. Enjoy! :)

    I enjoyed listening to this song at the ending of the twilight saga breaking dawn and in that sense i't's like bella fighting and bravely overcoming so many obstacles like james, victoria and the voltori just to name a few, to finally be with her true love edward she's loved him ever since she saw him and now that she's a vampire she'll love him forever so sweet I hope we all find a love like that.
