[Intro]

G G G D/F#   Em Em Em D   C C C C   G G D D*
                                                  

[Verse 1]

C9
Heartbeats fast
           G     
Colors and promises 
          Em7      
How to be brave 
            D/F#     G    C9
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall 
                   G
But watching you stand alone         
           Em7            D/F#  G      Am
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow 
Am        Em    D 
One step clo--ser 

G                    G              D/F#             
I have died everyday waiting for you
Em                              D    
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you 
       C9
For a thousand years 
                 D        
I love you for a thousand more 


[Instrumental]

C9   C9


[Chorus]

 C9
Time stands still
           G        
Beauty in all she is 
          Em       
I will be brave
           D/F#   G      C9
I will not let anything take away 
                   G           
What's standing in front of me 
       Em
Every breath           
       D/F#    G        Am
Every hour has come to this 
 Am      Em    D     
One step clo--ser
 

[Verse 2]

G                    G              D/F#             
I have died everyday waiting for you
Em                              D    
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you 
       C9
For a thousand years 
                 D        
I love you for a thousand more 
      G                   G       D/F#               
 And all along I believed I would find you
Em 
Time has brought your heart to me 
        D              C9   
I have loved you for a thousand years 
                     D    
I'll love you for a thousand more
