Plenty of pop musicians are fans of the Twilight series, but only a devoted few care enough to actually get tattoos related to the book series, as Christina Perri did when she inked the phrase "Bitten" on her wrist. It's only natural, then, that Perri should get a crack at appearing on one of the film's soundtracks, as she will be on the Breaking Dawn OST with the recently leaked "A Thousand Years." Perri's super-dramatic singer/songwriter brand translates well to the Twilight ethos, though "Years" is actually far more stirring than it is gloom-and-doomy, with strings, piano, and a sweeping chorus that proclaims "Darling, don't be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years / I'll love you for a thousand more."

Check it out via a new lyric video, featuring a lot of words inscribed in wood. (Does some poor intern actually have to do this, or is it all just Photoshop? Either way, sounds like a frustrating assignment.)
