[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

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


Cadd9...


[Verse]

Cadd9
Time stands still
          G/B
Beauty in all she is 
          Em7  
I will be brave
           D/F# G       Cadd9
I will not let anything take away 
                     G/B
What's standing in front of me 
      Em7
Every breath
      D/F#     G       Am
Every hour has come to this 
          Em    D  once
One step clo  ser
 

[Chorus]

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


[Bridge]

G                                 D/F#
'nd all along I believed I would find you
Em1                           
Time has brought your heart to me 
        D               Cadd9
I have loved you for a thousand years 
                     Dsus4    D
I'll love you for a thousand more 

G D/F# Em D Cadd9 Dsus4 D

Am          Em  D 
 One step clo  ser
Am          Em  D
 One step clo  ser 


[Chorus]

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

Very excellent tab! Thank you. I first tried it with a regular B chord, which didn't work, but with your B, its truly a beautiful song
