Christina Perri - A Thousand Years

Colours 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

The opening lines of A Thousand Years by American singer songwriter Christina Perri. Released in 2011, it was part of the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 film, where the tortured relationship within Bella Swan and Edward Cullen reaches its conclusion.
