Intro:G,D,Em,D,C,G,D

C
Heartbeats fast
           Em
Colors and promises

How to be brave
          D              C
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall
                 Em
But watching you stand alone
                         C                 D    Am
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow
         Em   D
One step closer

G
I have died everyday waiting for you
C                              D
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
       C
For a thousand years
                 D
I love you for a thousand more

C
Time stands still
          Em
Beauty in all she is

I will be brave
           D             C
I will not let anything take away
                   Em
What's standing in front of me

Every breath
      C                D         Am
Every hour has come to this
         Em    D
One step closer


G
I have died everyday waiting for you
C                              D
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
       C
For a thousand years
                 D
I love you for a thousand more


G
And all along I believed I would find you
Em
Time has brought your heart to me
       D                C
I have loved you for a thousand years
                 D
I love you for a thousand more

G, Em, D, C, D, Am

         Em    D     Am
One step closer
         Em    D
One step closer

G
I have died everyday waiting for you
C                              D
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
       C
For a thousand years
                 D
I love you for a thousand more


G
And all along I believed I would find you
Em
Time has brought your heart to me
       D                C
I have loved you for a thousand years
                 D
I love you for a thousand more

A great tab for people who are beginners and only know basic chords.

great song:) just in my opinion though, I think if you play an Am between the C and Em.
so instead of having it like this:

Em
But watching you stand alone
C
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow


it would go:

Em
But watching you stand alone
Am C
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow


I just think its sounds nice to add it:)
