21. I Say Forever

 

 

The sun hit my eyes with a strike with a headache attached to it.  I gasped at the pain in my head and walked wearily to the medicine counter to grab some Ibuprofen.  I took out a can of Sprite and popped 2 pills in my mouth and gulped them down.  I heard stirring upstairs and looked over at the couch where we crashed last night.  I saw Addie in Joe’s arms sleeping peacefully.  I smiled at their happiness.  They are so perfect for each other and I want them to see that in the song Nick and I are going to write for them.  Speaking or Nick, where is that man?

I walked upstairs and into our room.  There he sat with his acoustic guitar in his arms, strumming away.

“Hey honey.  What are you up to?” I asked leaning up against the door frame.

He smiled and set his guitar down.  He walked over to me and handed me a piece of paper.  I smiled up at him and looked at it.

“You already came up with the first line?” I asked shocked. “How long have you been up?”

He laughed, “Only an hour!  There is a lot I should have done though.”

He looked down.

“Hey! You have more than I have so far!” I said to him lifting his chin up to look at me.

I gave him a quick peck on the lips and moved over to the bed, reading the paper.

“You know? I was playing around with the guitar, but nothing seems to sounds perfect with it,” Nick said as I picked up the guitar.

“I was seeing this song as more of a piano song anyways,” I said.

I hummed a little tune that has been kind of stuck with me for a while but I can’t seem to put a name on it because it doesn’t really sound familiar.  Nick quickly looked at me as I hummed the first several notes.

“That sounds good!” Nick said standing up.

“Really? I’ve been thinking that tune for like a week!  But I can’t seem to know whose it is,” I said lifting my eyebrows.

“Here. Come with me,” he said abruptly taking my hand and walking out the door.  We walked across the hall and ran down stairs into the recording studio.  He walked me over to the piano and sat me down next to him.  He put his hands on the keys and played several notes until I stopped him on one.  He looked over at me at me smiling.

 “That’s it,” I said.

Nick removed his hands and I played the cord again.  I played around with some more keys and found another one that I liked.  Nick immediately ran over to the paper he had and wrote down the cords.  We were hard at work for a good two hours.  We made sure to turn off the studio sound to the outside just in case Addie and/or Joe walked in to see what we were doing.  We also locked the doors.  We couldn’t take any chances.  As soon as we finished the song, we sighed and looked at each other.

“I want just you to sing it, Leah,” Nick said just as we were about to start from the top.

I looked at him shocked.

“Me? Just me? Sing it? Alone?” I started getting frantic and panicky.

Nick took my hands, “You sang in front of 12,000 people, you can do it for Addie and Joe! I know you can.”

I smiled and instantly felt relief.

“Ok. I’ll do it, but you better pay me back for this,” I said wagging a finger at him.

“Don’t worry.  I know something that can fix that,” he whispered the last part under his breath.

“What?” I said to reassure myself of what he said before.

He shook his head and smiled getting up.

“Oh nothing, dear!  Now play it from the top,” he said standing up and moving to the stool next to the piano.

I took a deep breath and placed my fingers on the keys.  I began playing it with a feeling I never felt before.  I looked over at Nick as I began to sing:

 

She should feel blessed, in every sense of the word.

Because he is the greatest thing that will ever happen to her.

To have and hold

In heat or cold

She will love him.

Till death apart

Can be a start.

Never listen to them.

 

They say “Happily ever after, but do you know if it is now.”

They keep talking on about you two ending it somehow.

You say you’ll love them till you die,

While you keep growing on the line.

They say you won’t stay together,

But I say forever.

 

He can get a little bit too lovey-dovey sometimes.

Cos she is so attached to the one thing he knows that she can’t get off her mind.

He said, “I will

Be in love until

She can’t stand me anymore.

But I will fight

To keep us alive.

I’ll never let her go!”

 

They say “Happily ever after, but do you know if it is now.”

They keep talking on about you two ending it somehow.

You say you’ll love them till you die,

While you keep growing on the line.

They say you won’t stay together,

But I say forever.

 

Oh!

They all say

To stay away

From falling too hard in love!

 

He said, “I do.”

And she did too.

They’re finally allowed to say, “I love you.”

 

They say “Happily ever after, but do you know if it is now.”

They keep talking on about you two ending it somehow.

You say you’ll love them till you die,

While you keep growing on the line.

They say you won’t stay together.

No they say you can’t even handle it now!

But I say forever.  I say forever.

And ever, and ever.

 

I pulled my hands off the keys and smiled.  I looked over at Nick and saw a tear fall from his cheek.  I walked over to him and pulled him into a hug as he was still seated.  He wrapped his arms around my waist and buried his face into my chest.  A tear softly fell off my cheek as well.  The song was perfect for them.  I pulled back and grabbed Nick’s face in my hands and stared at his tear-filled eyes.  He smiled gently and sniffed.

“And THAT is why I want YOU to sing it,” Nick whispered onto my lips.

He pulled my waist into him and our lips crashed into each other’s.  I smiled in the kiss and interlocked my fingers in his curls as he deepened the kiss.  We both came up for air and smiled into each other’s eyes.

“Me and you, babe,” Nick smiled putting his forehead to mine.

“Me and you,” I smiled back and gave him one last kiss.
