Music Video: Thousand by @ThisisFoure

Thousand is a song about being there for the people who matter most to you, no matter what. In it’s intended context, the song serves two point of views.

T H O U S A N D  by  @thisisfoure

The first viewpoint is that of a person who has passed away. He is saying to his family, even though you can’t see me face to face, I will always be there for you. Even though you can’t hang out with me, you have all these memories that we created together. I wrote the song after the passing of a close friend (Jayson Richardson), and the passing of a another friend’s close friend. It was my way of coping with the situation, when normal talking words wouldn’t come out right.

The second viewpoint of the song is also very personal to me. Recently I packed my life into a car, and moved (to New Jersey) 1,000 miles away from home (Nashville, Tennessee), hence the title “Thousand”. I wanted a way to express to the friends and family in Tennessee that I was still there if they needed me. I didn’t want anyone to feel abandoned by me. So this was my way of saying, “hey, I’m still here whenever you need to talk”.

In the video you’ll notice that you don’t see any faces other than my own. You see people, but you can’t see their faces. I think you just figured out why… If not, it represents the fact that I can’t see them face to face. The people in the video represent memories of the people in my life.

Honestly, I had no intentions of making this video. It snowed, I got off work early, so I figured, lets see what I can come up with. I hope you enjoy the song and the video. Please share the video with the people you love, let them know you will be there no matter what.

  1. Thank you for sharing the background on how this beautiful song came about. I remember listening to this shortly after Jayson passed and cried my eyes out and listening and watching the video… cried my eyes out. Thank you for caring so much about Jayson and being his friend even after life!


    1. Barb, if you only knew the impact your son had on my life… He gravitated towards me at first sight, and our friendship grew like crazy. He helped me through so much in life. I will be forever grateful. I will never forget my friend, or his smile, or his Eddy Murphy like laughter. I told Shannon if she ever needs anything, I’m here. Kelly already knows that. “You’ll be a part of me FOREVER!”. When I move back to TN, I’ll make sure to be present in the lives or the girls. Love them so much! Thank you for supporting me and my thoughts!
