The song was released as a digital download on October 18, 2011, worldwide, and serves as the second single from the album. Perri re-recorded the song with vocals from Steve Kazee for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack titled A Thousand Years, Pt. 2. more »

I love Christina Perri. I first got hooked on her when I heard "Jar of Hearts". She has a strong and smooth voice that is quite relaxing. No sexual talk, language, drinking/drugs, or (though CommonSense may argue) violence is involved in "A Thousand Years". The only issue I have with this song? It was written for the Twilight soundtrack... Yuck!In both works, the vitrine is split in half by a glass wall: a hole in this partition allows newly hatched flies from a box reminiscent of a die in one half, to fly into the other where an Insect-O-Cutor hangs. The corpses of the flies inside the vitrine accumulate whilst the works are on exhibition. In ‘A Thousand Years’, a decaying cow’s head is presented beneath the fly-killer.
