Christina Perri: A Thousand Years Meaning

Song Released: 2011


Covered By: Jasmine Thompson


A Thousand Years Lyrics

Verse 1)
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

(Pre-chorus)
One step closer

(Chorus)
I have died...

    This song is about waiting for the one. You've waited your entire life and you finally found them. But that person is scared. Scared of falling, letting their walls down. Afraid of being hurt. And you just want to reassure them that you've waited so patiently for them and you would never do anything to hurt them. And you'll continue to be patient with them and you'd never do anything to hurt them.all you want to do is love them.

    it's about waiting for someone who will be the one for you... who will love you just the way you are... who will just look you in they eye... who will always gets you...

    waiting for that person... it is worth it... when that moments comes when you met the right person... the wait worth a thousand years... and you will love that person a thousand more years.

    it doesn't matter if that person i already the one you know or any person who will come in your life.
    i just love this song. it's beautiful. very suitable for wedding songs.

    I think this song has a very deep meaning. Like some of the other comments, I believe this song has something to do with 'Always loving that person' even before you've met them. Because you've told yourself that when you do meet your true love, you know you won't hurt them because you'll love them so much and the thought of letting them go after waiting for that person for so long is heart breaking! And you'll love them for a thousand more years!!

    An official lyric video of the song was premiered on October 17, 2011 via Perri's official Facebook and Twitter pages as well as her official website. On October 26, 2011, she released an official video for the song on her YouTube channel. The video begins with Perri holding a candle. It features a few clips from the movie interspersed between scenes with Perri singing in a room with a floor full of candles. The video may include the voices from Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson saying they love each other while in a wedding and also they can be heard in the background before the bridge. She ends the video singing into a sunset.

    This song is about rejection you love someone but you are scared they don't love you back. And not to be scared because they have loved you for a thousand years

    Recently my girlfriend and I broke up, I heard her singing this song once an it made me think about the part I have died everyday waiting for you, this reminded me that I waited but she did not come around. I have waited for a long time for this person that I love and I will continue to. Anyway that is how I interpret the song.

    Edward is declaring his love for Bella! He loves her with all his heart and that is showed throughout all of the movies and throughout all of the books. I absolutely love Twilight! It is my absolute favorite!
    I love Edward!!!!!
    TEAM EDWARD ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I love vampires, I think that they are very romantic and they have just something incredibly special about them. I love you Edward Cullen!!!!!!

    My interpretation is that our lives start way before we're born and last way after we die there are people (souls) that are destined to meet at some point in our lives. I have recently had a grandson and I felt that I and this little soul have known that we would come into each other's lives at some point in time. You don't know how or when. In my experience my little grandson came to me in a second marriage through my daughter from the second marriage. I had been married previously and had lost my first husband to death it is bittersweet to know that that must come to pass because I was always going to have my grandson come into my life. Our lives are eternal no beginning no end

    It is obviously a song about Edward and Bella as Perri wrote it after watching the movie 6 months before the release. Notwithstanding the actual meaning I have another interpretation of what it can also mean. There are many parents alienated from their children for many reasons (mainly though due to the influence of a hostile favoured parents). This song speaks to those parents and children that even though you (the child) is gone I (the parent) love you with all my heart, have loved for ever and will always love you forever and will wait for the day when you (child) have the inner strength to come back to me (the parent) and even if you never do I (the parent) will still love you (the child) and you should never forget that.

    This song means everything! Edward said in the books/movies that he has been waiting for Bella, like it says in the song. Edward will love her for a thousand years because he is a vampire and she will be one soon- vampires live forever. Hope that helped!

    for me this song is about a guy or a girl that is waiting for a long time for their soulmate.they are waiting for the right girl and right guy.its about waiting patiently for your one true love.and at the end it will be worth the wait.this song is very touching because of the lyrics itself that's why its very relatable for many. this song will remind us all that true love waits, yes indeed its worth the wait when the love of your life finally comes after a long wait.this song will definitely swept you off of you feet.so for those who are still waiting,searching and finding or whatever you called it just hold on and have faith because eventually he/she will come.he/she will come in God's perfect time and Will :)

    I think it means that a girl is waiting for a guy to love her and she will wait for how long it takes even a thousand tears
