Line(s) of the Day #AThousandYears

Christina Perri - A Thousand Years

Heart beats fast
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

When I’m with you, when I’m with you
I’m standing with an army
