Safe And Sound (Triquel to Red)

"Elizabeth Ashton was more that just a girl to me. She was my best friend, she was the love of my life, she was my light. Since the day I met her when we were 5 years old there hasn't been a single day that I didn't love her. Without her, I wouldn't be the man I am today. She taught me so many things. She taught me to never give up on myself and to never let anyone tell me who I am, who I want to be. She taught me to believe in myself even when no one else did. Through the 15 years that I knew her, just the thought of her made me smile. Now I can't help but look back on all of the memories we made. The pillow fights, the sleep overs, the ghost stories. She made me happier than anyone else ever could. She put a smile on my face even when I was on the verge of tears and she always knew what to say. So much of the world knows Elizabeth Ashton as the girl who broke free from her past and created a future...

20. Because Of You

***Beth's POV***

It was a few days after Thanksgiving and Liam and I had come home yesterday. Finally I had made the decision to continue writing my album. Now as I sit in one of the conference rooms in Syco Records, tying to think of songs to write not a thing crosses my mind that is worthy of a song. I sighed and leaned back in my chair, tapping the pencil against the table. I thought about how helpless, how afraid my father made me feel. I never wanted anyone to live the horrors that I did. Never. I will never make the same mistakes that he did. Thats when it came to me.

I will not make
The same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself
Cause my heart so much misery
I will not break
The way you did, you fell so hard
I've learned the hard way
To never let it get that far

It was a while before I thought of the next line.


Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid


Finally after two and a half hours I had another song for my album.


I will not make
The same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself
Cause my heart so much misery
I will not break
The way you did, you fell so hard
I've learned the hard way
To never let it get that far

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I lose my way
And it's not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I watched you die
I heard you cry every night in your sleep
I was so young
You should have known
Better than to lean on me
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
And now I cry in the middle of the night
For the same damn thing

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I try my hardest just to forget everything
Because of you
I don't know how to let anyone else in
Because of you
I'm ashamed of my life
Because it's empty
Because of you
I am afraid

Because of you
Because of you
  
I had just witten the last line when the door opened. I looked up and saw five boys enter. I raised my eyebrows.

"What are you guys doing here?" I asked them.

Liam came over and sat next to me.

"Well we, One Direction, are officially back together." Liam grinned.

A smile spread across my face. "Finally. Do the fans know yet?"

He nodded. "We just did a twitcam and now our phones are buzzing with twitter notifications."

"Hows song writing going?" Louis asked.

"I just finished another song. I only need one more for my album. So far I have Catch Me, Breathe, Forever and Always, Skyscraper, Better Than Revenge, Come Back... Be Here, Listen To Your Heart, B-e-a-utiful, Heart Attack, Eyes Open, Because of You and I need one more." I told them.

"What about that song you sang to me a few months ago." Liam suggested.


"Safe and Sound?" I asked.

He nodded. I thought for a moment.

"Actually... that could work." I smiled. 

"Can we hear it?" Niall asked.

I nodded. "Zayn pass me that guitar in the corner will you?"

Zayn picked up the guitar that was sitting in the corner and handed it to me. I rested it in my lap and strummed the strings a few times. Finally I began the first chords and began to sing the song I had written months ago. The boys just stared at me as I sang and I smiled. Once I finished the song the boys began to clap.

"I didn't even know you could play the guitar." Niall said.

I shrugged. "There are a lot of things you don't know about me."

"That was even better that the one you sang a few months ago and I thought that one was amazing." Liam grinned.

I rolled my eyes. "Of course you say that. You think everything I do is amazing."

"Because it is." He grinned.

I threw my pencil at his head and it bounced off his forehead.

"So that was amazing?" I smirked.

"Pshhh. Uh. Yeah." He grinned, rubbing his forehead.

I rolled my eyes again.

"Well I need to go tell Simon that I have all the songs for my album. I'll record them later." I said.

I stood up and the boys followed me out of the room. As soon as I reached Simon's office I knocked lightly on the door. 

"Come in." Simon called.

I opened the door and Simon looked up and smiled.

"Hows that album coming?" He asked.

"I'm done with it actually." I smiled.

He nodded his head in approval. "Good. That means we can begin to discuss tour. You're alright with having the same tour group?" He asked.

I nodded. "Yeah. I love all of them." 

"Okay. I was talking with the boys and they are going to have their album done by the end of the month. That means they will go on tour in about two months. Now I know neither you nor Liam liked the situation of one of you being on tour and one of you not so I thought it might be a good idea to have your tours at the same time. Your tour will be 6 months and the boy's tour will be 7 months." Simon explained.

"But that means they have one more month than me." I frowned.

"Let me finish. I don't suppose you would mind joining the boys for the remainder of their tour once yours finishes, would you?" He asked.

I grin spread across my face. "I would love that."

"Alright. Now I need you to come in tomorrow so we can finish recording your songs. Afterward I'll create a setlist that you must follow. On your last tour you didn't follow it very much but this time i'm going to have Grace enforce it." Simon told me.

I groaned. "Fine."

"So I'll see you tomorrow at around...10?" He asked.

"Perfect." I smiled.

"See you then." He said.

I nodded and walked out. The boys were messing around in the hall and I crossed my arms.

"I swear, you boys still act like children." I smirked.

"Oh but you love us." Liam grinned.

"I love them. I hate you." I told him playfully.

He fake gasped.

"I'm kidding Liam." I laughed. "You know I love you."
