About this song

The A Thousand Years Songfacts says that Perri wrote this song based on the emotions that she felt reading about the star-crossed love affair between Edward and Bella throughout Stephenie Meyer's series of books. American singer/songwriter and musician Christina Judith Perri hails from Philadelphia, USA. 'A Thousand Years' was recorded for the movie 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn'. Christina will be releasing her second studio album this spring.
