 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       
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow

Am        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

I will not let anything take away 
                     G/B
What's standing in front of me 
      Em7
Every breath

Every hour has come to this
