[Intro]
C - Am7 - F - Dm7 - G

[Verse I]
C
Heartbeats fast
           Am7
Colors and promises
          F
How to be brave
          G     Am7     F
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall
                  Am7
But watching you stand alone
          F      G       Am7   F
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow

F        Am7  G
One step closer

[Chorus]

C
I have died everyday waiting for you
Am7
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
      F        Dm7
For a thousand years
                 F        G
I love you for a thousand more

C -F - G x1 (Before starting 2nd verse) (may not be right but works for me) 

[Verse II]

C
Time stands still
          Am7
Beauty in all she is
          F
I will be brave
           G   Am7      F
I will not let anything take away
                   Am7
What's standing in front of me
      F
Every breath
      G         Am7     F
Every hour has come to this
F        Am7   G
One step closer..

[Chorus]

C
I have died everyday waiting for you
Am7
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
      F        Dm7
For a thousand years
                 F        G
I love you for a thousand more
C
And all along I believed I would find you
Am7
Time has brought your heart to me I have loved you
      F        Dm7
For a thousand years
                 F        G
I love you for a thousand more

[Instrumental]

C - Am7 - F - Dm7 (may not be right but works for me) 

    Dm7      F    G
    One step closer
    Dm7      F    G
    One step closer

C
I have died everyday waiting for you
Am7
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
      F        Dm7
For a thousand years
                 F        G
I love you for a thousand more
C
And all along I believed I would find you
Am7
Time has brought your heart to me I have loved you
      F        Dm7
For a thousand years
                 F        G
I love you for a thousand more..

End with C-Am7-F-Dm7-C chord (again this may not be correct but it works for me)
