A Thousand Years - Christina Perri


[Intro]

G Em Cadd9 G D


[Verse 1]

Cadd9
Heartbeats fast
           Em
Colors and promises

How to be brave
          D              Cadd9
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall
                 Em
But watching you stand alone
                        D                 Am
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow
         Em   D
One step closer

[Chorus]

G
I have died everyday waiting for you
Em                              D
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
       Cadd9
For a thousand years
                 D
I love you for a thousand more

[Verse 2]

Cadd9
Time stands still
          Em
Beauty in all she is

I will be brave
           D             Cadd9
I will not let anything take away
                   Em
What's standing in front of me

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

[Chorus]

G
I have died everyday waiting for you
Em                           D
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
       Cadd9
For a thousand years
                 D
I love you for a thousand more

[Bridge]

G
And all along I believed I would find you
Em
Time has brought your heart to me
       D                Cadd9
I have loved you for a thousand years
                 D
I love you for a thousand more

G Em Cadd9  D  Am

         Em    D     Am
One step closer
         Em    D
One step closer

[Chorus]

G
I have died everyday waiting for you
Em                             D
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
       Cadd9
For a thousand years
                 D
I love you for a thousand more

[Outro]

G
And all along I believed I would find you
Em
Time has brought your heart to me
       D                Cadd9
I have loved you for a thousand years
                 D
I love you for a thousand more

Cadd9  Em  Cadd9  Em  D

end on Cadd9

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:)

I love this song!!! I am a beginner and it works amazingly! One thing is i dont know how the strumming should be. Can someone post it just so that i can try playing it and learn it correctly?
