Story behind the song:
Our kids give us great inspiration for our music. When Jon’s 17-year-old daughter said how much she loved this song, Jon decided to try it. He experienced a flood of inspiration. “Never has a piano part come
together this fast,” Jon says. Steve experienced similar inspiration
while composing the cello parts. Since the lyrics suggest a bride
walking towards the groom in a ceremony we thought we would include a quote from the Bridal Chorus by Wagner in the climax of the song. (It is carefully disguised).

As it seems to always go, Paul and Tel didn’t find the spot until they spent 9 hours driving around southern Utah the day before the shoot looking. After getting a little discouraged by not finding anything that great, they just happened to check out a little-hidden spot right near Baker Dam and thought it was perfect for the song. The next morning we all loaded up the piano and headed out there to film, but after getting the Truck and Trailer stuck and waiting for the sun to move, we didn’t get started filming until that evening having about 3 hours of light. It was so fun to film and play in the middle of the trees!

    This song was played during our wedding. Today is our 5th year anniversary. Listening to this song,again, makes me remember the ups and downs i and my husband had encountered for the past 5years. Just last year, 1yr ago from today,i had a miscarriage. We’ve been wanting a baby since day 1 of our marriage🥺 but till now we hadn’t have one🥺. I love my husband so much.

    I've seen the piano guys live. Sorry but that is not my piece of cake !! What a noise, way too loud! Not like YouTube-friendly melodies but rock-solid sound! They are very talented and have a great show. But I've been for the first and last time. Maybe three songs that are worth it. This song was worth it!! Sorry!!!

    Heart beats fast
    Colors 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
    One step closer

    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

    Time stands still
    Beauty in all she is
    I will be brave
    I will not let anything take her away

    What's standing in front of me
    Every breath
    Every hour has come to this
    One step closer

    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

    And all along I believed I would find you
    Time has brought your heart to me
    I have loved you for a thousand years
    I'll love you for a thousand more

    One step closer
    One step closer

    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

    And all along I believed I would find you
    Time has brought your heart to me
    I have loved you for a thousand years
    I'll love you for a thousand more
