A Thousand Years By: Christina Perri Feat. Steve Kazee
Facts about Christina Perri
She went to a private school that wouldn't allow tattoos. So, she got four.
She re-recorded this song three times for the Twilight soundtrack.
My song is a dramatic poem.
It's a duet.
They're singing about their feelings.
"I have died everyday waiting for you, darling don't be afraid I have loved you for a thousand years, I'll love you for a thousand more.

Interpretation
To me this song was about a girl who loves this guy and she says that somewhere in her heart she's always loved him. But, what I learned this sing actually meant was that her husband and her got divorced and she was telling him how she would always love her even though they're not together anymore.
A quote from the song to support this is "I have died everyday waiting for you, darling don't be afraid I have loved you for a thousand years. I'll love you for a thousand more."
