Music Series: Somebody Out There by A Rocket To The Moon

Now that For the Love of Harry is on (a possibly temporary) hiatus…(see what I did there?)…and I’m working on my next chaptered story…I want to do some music series stories. I’m quite nervous about choosing which chaptered story I want to share with you next. Would you hate me if Harry cheated on his girl? Do you love Daddy Harry stories as much as I do? Do you hate AU stories (as much as I do)? I’m so concerned with turning you all off that I’m anxious about what to write. So until I figure it out, or get more feedback from you all, I’m going to do a few music stories!

My goals are to entertain you, and to not disrespect Harry. But I don’t want to be ‘that girl who thinks she can write but sucks’. So I ask…if you hate my writing, please let me know. And if you love it, please let me know that, too!

I’ve gone back and forth with this song for a couple of weeks. I love the song, but the story wasn’t coming to me…until this morning. I hope it translates the way I’m wanting it to.

This is my story, inspired by “Somebody Out There” by A Rocket To The Moon. I hope you like it!  Link to song on my Spotify playlist called ‘I Love You Long Time’: https://open.spotify.com/track/2mUCD9Bx2IOFFrVtEH3tyg

Love to you all! xo

You deserve someone who listens to you
Hears every word and knows what to do
When you’re feeling hopeless, lost and confused
There’s somebody out there who will

Harry could already tell you weren’t yourself. You loved your friendship with Harry. He was the best friend you had ever had.

On your last birthday, Harry showed up at your apartment with “Birthday In A Bag”, making you laugh as he pulled out numerous items for a make-shift birthday party, most of them cheesy but very ‘Harry’, and you knew he had gone to a lot of work to put it all together. There were deflated balloons waiting for air, along with a small air canister so the two of you wouldn’t have to deal with a light-head as you blew up 100 balloons…yes, 100. There were trinkets and gadgets to play with, and noisemakers that said, “Happy New Year” and “Cinco de Mayo”.

“Oh, wait!” he said, nearly forgetting, as he ran back out to his car and inside again, his guitar in one hand, and setting down a freshly-baked cake he had made for you with his other, a crazy hat on his head, and another that he quickly sat on your own head. He lit the candles on the cake, kissed your cheek, and began singing the most horrendous version of “Happy Birthday” that you had ever heard. You thought you had never laughed so hard in your life, but that was what being friends with Harry was like, you had quickly learned.

Even when you were sad, or not quite yourself, Harry was attentive to you, probably even more so. When he saw you planting flowers outside your house, he pulled into your drive and parked. A mutual friend had told Harry that the night before you had caught the guy you had been dating for awhile out with another girl. You hadn’t said anything to Harry about it, but he knew planting flowers was something you did when you were sad and needed cheered up. And you liked how, as the flowers grew, the blooming beauty of them reminded you that you got through yet another miserable time in your life and survived.

You need a man who holds you for hours
Make your friends jealous when he brings you flowers
And laughs when he says they don’t have love like ours
There’s somebody out there who will

Harry opened the trunk of his car, pulling out pods of new baby plants, bright with vibrant colors, and carried them to where you were working. Kneeling down beside you, he shows you the plants he brought and grins lovingly at you. You look at him with eyes beginning to tear, and accept the hug and kiss to the side of your head, as he grabs one of the little gardening tools and begins making a spot for the new flowers. You wipe your face with your shirt, then continue digging and planting, neither of you saying a word.

When you both finish, you feel accomplished and stand back, looking at the new beauty of the garden. You feel Harry’s arm around your shoulders as he looks at the flowers and smiles, then looks at you with an even bigger smile. You chuckle at the dirt on his face, then lean against his chest as his arms wrap tightly around you, holding you for a long moment, and in that moment, there was nobody else in the world but you and your best friend.

There’s somebody out there who’s looking for you
Someday he’ll find you, I swear that it’s true
He’s gonna kiss you and you’ll feel the world stand still
There’s somebody out there who will

Harry had been gone for a while with work and you were missing your friend. You knew he stayed busy and probably hadn’t thought twice about you, but when you were about to go to sleep one night, you were happy to see a video call come through from him. You pushed the button on your phone to accept the call, and smiled as you saw your friend on your screen.

“Hey!” you smiled broadly. “What’s up?”

“Just finished a show and trying to wind down a bit in the hotel room,” he said to you. “A bit homesick, if I’m being honest.”

It made you sad to think of Harry being sad. You being in London and he being in the states tugged at your heart, wishing you could be there with him to keep him company.

“I’m sorry,” you say, blowing him a kiss. “That better?”

He giggles and smiles. “Much, thank you.”

He’ll take you dancing and pull you in close
Spin you around and won’t let you go
Till they turn the lights off and he’ll take you home
There’s somebody out there who will

Harry threw himself backward on the strange, hotel bed. He was getting really sick and tired of hotel rooms, wishing he was home in England. He lay on the bed, staring at the ceiling, then grabbing his phone and looking to see if he had any missed calls or messages. He wondered what you were doing, assuming you would be asleep, being the middle of the night in London. He imagined you sleeping and smiled slightly. He wondered if you knew that he liked you more than just a friend.

Tossing and turning and dreaming at night
About finding him and praying and hoping you might
‘Cause you deserve someone who knows how to treat you right

As his mind explored, he closed his eyes, then heard a knock at his door.

“Yeah?” he hollered as he heard it open.

“H, you have company, man,” the guard said. Harry lifted his head and looked toward the door, as he saw you walk around the guard and into the room. Harry jumped at full speed off the bed and ran to where you stood, nearly knocking you off your feet. You laughed as he held you so tightly you could barely breathe. The guard closed the door behind you and you returned the love to Harry that he was showing you.

“I’m guessing you’re happy to see me?” you chuckle.

“You have no idea,” he says, finally leaning away with the hugest smile on his face. “How on earth…” Harry asked in complete shock that you are actually there. “Please don’t wake me if I’m dreaming. You’re the best sight I’ve seen in ages!”

You laugh as he hugs you again.

“I’ve missed you, too,” you say honestly. “Was lonely in London without my best friend.”

You start to feel Harry sway you back and forth to imaginary music, as he begins to hum into your ear.

You giggle. “What are you doing, you crazy man?”

“Can’t a man dance with his best friend when he’s happy, if he wants to?” Harry asks, spinning you slowly around, not letting you go.

“He absolutely can, handsome,” you say, loving his adoration for you.

I know he’s out there
He’s looking for you
Someday he’ll find you I swear that it’s true
And he’s gonna kiss you and you’ll feel the world stand still

As Harry stopped humming, he leans away from you, smiling.

“Thank you for coming to see me, love,” Harry says with his heart. “You don’t know how much that means to me.”

“Selfish of me, honestly,” you say. “I missed you.”

As you smile at him, you see him look at your mouth, then gently press his lips against yours. He leans away again, his arms still around you, and looks into your eyes.

“Means more to me than you could ever know, babe,” Harry gushes, as he again kisses you, making no mistakes in showing how he truly feels for you. Your heart smiles, knowing you’ve felt the same for him for a long time but was afraid to show it. As Harry tastes your kiss, his body begins to slowly pull you into his slow dance once again, holding you closely, kissing you passionately, and happy you seem to feel the same for him.

You need someone who’ll miss you
Hold you and kiss you
There’s somebody out there who will
