   G/F#[200033]                         
   D/F#[200233]  -I've changed the D's in the chorus to D/F#'s  
  Dsus4[xx0233]   It's a very easy change from the Dsus4 to just        
    Em7[022033]      add that low E string for the D/F#.        
 A7sus4[x02233]    Thanks to UG member Delfius for the suggestion!

[Verse 1]

Cadd9
Heartbeats fast
           G 
Colors and promises 
          Em7
How to be brave 
          Dsus4     D/F# Cadd9
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall 
                 G
But watching you stand alone
          Em7            Dsus4 G        Asus4/G
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow 
         Em7  D -once
One step clo--ser 


[Chorus]

G                    Dsus4   D/F#
I have died everyday waiting for you
Em7                     Dsus4  D/F# 
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you 
      Cadd9
For a thousand years 
                 G/F#     D/F# -once
I love you for a thousand more 

Cadd9    


[Verse 2]

Cadd9
Time stands still
          G
Beauty in all she is 
          Em7  
I will be brave
           Dsus4 G      Cadd9
I will not let anything take away 
                   G
What's standing in front of me 
      Em7
Every breath           [x02033]
      Dsus4    G        Asus4/G
Every hour has come to this 
         Em7 D -once           
One step closer
 

[Chorus]

G                    Dsus4   D/F#
I have died everyday waiting for you
Em7                     Dsus4  D/F# 
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you 
      Cadd9
For a thousand years 
                 G/F#     D/F#
I love you for a thousand more 


[Bridge]

G                        Dsus4   D/F#
And all along I believed I would find you
Em7                           
Time has brought your heart to me 
Dsus4  D/F#            Cadd9
I have loved you for a thousand years 
                    Dsus4    D
I'll love you for a thousand more 

G    Em7    Cadd9    G6  Dsus4  
Cadd9 -softly strumming

                    [x02033]
(Cadd9)  Em7  Dsus4  Asus4/G
One step clo--ser
         Em7  D -once
One step clo--ser 


[Chorus]

G                    Dsus4   D/F#
I have died everyday waiting for you
Em7                     Dsus4  D/F# 
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you 
      Cadd9
For a thousand years 
                 G/F#     D/F#
I love you for a thousand more 


[Outro]

G                        Dsus4   D/F#
And all along I believed I would find you
Em7                           
Time has brought your heart to me 
Dsus4  D/F#            Cadd9
I have loved you for a thousand years 
                    Dsus4    D
I'll love you for a thousand more

@iJAMw/TAYSWIFT- You're right about the Em7! I already updated this morning (and a couple other changes.) Every chord starts sounding the same when I'm playing it over and over and over trying to figure things out! My fingers were so raw!! lol! But with fresh ears this morning, I could hear some subtle changes that need to be made.
Glad you like my Taylor Swift stuff:) I love her and I got to see her in concert a few weeks ago! It was incredible!! Anyways, thanks for the comment and it might take until Monday for the update to go through:( Thanks!!

Great tab! For the G* I normal write it as G/F# (G with F# in the base) but it could be something else.
