A Thousand Years

It’s no secret I’m a sucker for romance and fantasy. And a movie that revolves around both of these ingredients is a perfect recipe for addiction. I am a big fan of the ‘Twilight’ series. Yes, I’ve watched all of them multipleeeeee times, although the first one was the best, in my opinion. Today, I’ve chosen a song that played during the credits of the movie where Bella marries Edward. A lot of priests and preachers let out warnings about the movie revolving around glamourizing vampires and devaluing the incorruptible soul for mere love, a feeling. Well, as you know… I’m Christian through and through. But, as a young adult, I’d look at the trees at night hoping to find my uniquely romantic vampire to put me in such a dilemma …one who would have been restlessly waiting for me …for a thousand years! I know, right? Aah, the fragrance of innocent youth!

A Thousand Years – Ruelha

The heart only speaks feelings and colours.
Puts the conditioned mind in a tizzy and wonders.
When I see you, my mind is set free.
And I can truly be just me.
Because love is the power that conquers...
doubts and fears, and makes you feel empowered.

But, how does one love if they're afraid to fall?
When I look into your eyes, I break these barriers and walls.
And I come one step closer.
leaning on your shoulder.
And my heart calms down.
A thousand disturbances and sounds.

Because it recognizes, in a thousand years.
This spot in your arms dissolves all fears.
And I have died all along waiting for you.
To see you in my arms, this close, the view.
I've loved you for a thousand years.
I've plucked you from a thousand stars.

You're in your world. And I'm in mine.
But, I always turn back every time.
When I smell your fragrance.
I know you're more than an acquaintance.
Your distinct smell.
Makes my heart blush and swell.

But how does one love if they're afraid to fall?
Vampires and humans, too many barriers and walls.
But I come one step closer.
I manage to maintain composure.
And when we lock lips,
there's a blinding eclipse.

And all that I ever need to see.
My whole world is right here in front of me.
And I have died all along waiting for you.
And finally, calm is my heart, for I found you.
I've loved you for a thousand years.
Through all the smiles and tears.

This moment that we're in.
Time just stands still.
Because all along I was dead waiting for you.
Excitement and wait of a thousand years, how to subdue?
Darling, don't be afraid. I have always loved you.
In my heart, I had built your statue.

But how does one love if they're so afraid?
Hold my hand and whisper in my ears to persuade.
So I dare and take one step closer.
My heart feels vulnerable and naked with exposure.
But now, you're the only thing in my view.
I taste tranquility sweeter than fresh dew.

And all that I will ever need to see.
My whole world is right here in front of me.
I had died all along waiting for you.
And finally, time has found you.
I've loved you for a thousand years.
I'll love you for a thousand more.
A thousand years...
...and a thousand more!

Lyrics of ‘ A thousand years’ by Christina Perri

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall?
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow
One step closer
I have died every day waiting for you
Darling, don't be afraid
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more
Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What's standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this
One step closer
I have died every day waiting for you
Darling, don't be afraid
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more
And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more
One step closer
One step closer
I have died every day waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more
And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more
