A Thousand Years (Sequel to Red)

The moment you realize that in the blink of an eye you have lost everything, its the most terrifying moment of my life. As I drive away from not only my friends, but my family the recent events played in my head. Its hard to believe that in an instant you can looses everyone important to you. Here I am, driving away from the people who picked me up when I fell down and got me where I am today. The people whom I called my family.

38. Eyes Open

***Beth's POV***

I was sitting in a conference room at Syco Records. I had been here for an hour and I still couldn't come up with an idea for a song. I would call Liam right now but he's probably asleep at home cause he's sick. I sat there and looked down at the blank sheet of paper in front of me.
I just sat there, tapping my pencil against the table. I had no idea what I should write next. I took out my phone and went on Twitter. I frowned at some of the things people were saying about me.

@LexiLuv930: Am I the only one who thinks that at some point @ElizabethAshton is just going to come crashing down and break?

@HoranHug: @ElizabethAshton is an amazing singer but... I don't know how to put this, I just think she's going to come to a point in her life where she just breaks.

I sighed and rolled my eyes at what they were saying. They expected me to come crashing down at some point in my career. I would just give up and break. Well, they are wrong. Suddenly an idea popped into my head.

Everybody's waiting
Everybody's watching
Even when you're sleeping
Keep your ey-eyes open


They were all watching me, waiting for a moment where I would slip. Well, I would keep my eyes open.

The tricky thing
Is yesterday we were just children
Playing soldiers
Just pretending
Dreaming dreams with happy endings
In backyards, winning battles with our wooden swords
But now we've stepped into a cruel world
Where everybody stands and keeps score


As I wrote the last word on the line the door burst open and four boys rushed in.

"Beth!" Louis screeched.

"Louis!" I mimicked.

"Sorry, Grace said we could come in. Liam isn't here so he can't help us write and record songs. We thought we'd come to see you." Zayn smiled.

"Thanks Zayn." I replied.

"Where is Liam anyway? He just texted us this morning telling us that he couldn't come in today." Harry said.

"Hes sick. Hes just home right now either sleeping or watching Disney movies." I told them.

"Typical Liam and his Disney movies. We'll stop by when you leave so we can say hi to him." Zayn said.

"He'd like that." I smiled.

"So, writing songs?" Harry asked.

I nodded. "I can't think of any good songs though."

"Well what do you have so far?" Niall asked.

I sang to them what I had so far.

"Wow, thats really good. Whats it about?" Louis asked, taking a seat next to me.

"People on Twitter are saying that at some point I am going to trip and come crashing down, bringing my career with me." I sighed. 

"Well we both know thats not true. Beth, you have an incredible voice. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise." Harry said.

I smiled. "Thanks Haz."

We all sat around talking for a while and they helped me finish the song. By the time we were finished I had this;
 

Everybody's waiting
Everybody's watching
Even when you're sleeping
Keep your ey-eyes open

The tricky thing
Is yesterday we were just children
Playing soldiers
Just pretending
Dreaming dreams with happy endings
In backyards, winning battles with our wooden swords
But now we've stepped into a cruel world
Where everybody stands and keeps score

Keep your eyes open

Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Even when you're sleeping, sleeping
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open

So here you are, two steps ahead and staying on guard
Every lesson forms a new scar
They never thought you'd make it this far
But turn around (turn around), oh they've surrounded you
It's a showdown (showdown) and nobody comes to save you now
But you've got something they don't
Yeah you've got something they don't
You've just gotta keep your eyes open

Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Even when you're sleeping, sleeping
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes

Keep your feet ready
Heartbeat steady
Keep your eyes open
Keep your aim locked
The night goes dark
Keep your eyes open

Keep your eyes open
Keep your eyes open
Keep your eyes open
Keep your eyes open

Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Even when you're sleeping, sleeping

Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
