A Thousand Years from "Twilight: Breaking Dawn"

A contemporary piece that has become very popular for weddings, this video was recorded just prior to a wedding reception at which we were performing. In addition to this harp duo version, I also play this piece as a harp solo or in a duet with a melody instrument (such as flute or violin).

This piece can be played on pedal harp or lever harp.


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 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
