I don’t know about you, but I think her love of the characters and knowledge of the story is why she probably why her song is so perfect, and hence how she was chosen for the soundtrack. Congrats Christina!

Purchase the song on iTunes here and on Amazon here.

    personally, im a huge twilight fan i have already bought my tickets for the new movie but this song really does not make sense and i really dont like it but she has a beautiful voice. but they could have picked a better song.

  • lizzie

    i love it, is so beautiful

  • Brooky

    Omg! Im totally using this for our wedding! We already stole Flightless Bird American Mouth lol! This song us beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  • Romneygirl

    She has a pretty voice…. but I don't think she captured the depth of the love between Edward and Bella… their love story is the Romeo and Juliet of our time!

  • Donnab

    This song is amazing! I cant stop listening to it! It is absolutely perfect for Edward and Bellas wedding march!! If you listen you can  pick what parts are what Edward is thinking and the parts that would be Bella's thoughts!  Thank you Christina Perri for loving Twilight as much as I do and sharing your beautiful talent with us. You have truly captured the essence of Edward and Bellas love for one another!
