The Start – A Thousand Years lyrics

You were right.
You were bigger than me.
I no longer see the sun, you eclipsed it.
When you left you reflected back the light.
The glow of a million creatures.
With hope burning bright... I will wait for you a thousand years.
You're retrograde like planets slipping backwards.
I will wait for you a thousand more.
One thousand promises one thousand goodbyes.
You were right.
You were better than me.
I've broken my mirrors so you can't see what you've done to me.
I am yours forever more.
I will wait for you a thousand years.
A thousand promises one thousand last goodbyes.
I will wait for you a thousand more.
You are retrodrade like planets slipping backwards.
You were right.
