Twilight Fans! This is one would love to have! A slow ballad, it does great with a small 3 piece band set up: 1 Singer + 1 Violinist + 1 Keyboardist. Literally, the lyrics talk about her waiting for her lover for a thousand years. Don't you wish you were a vampire to live that long too? LOL.

The simplicity of this, just 1 vocal + 1 acoustic guitar, makes it suitable for some of the smallest and most intimate setting in a wedding.
