lego house (cover)
request: an imagine where shawn is on tour and y/n calls him when it’s late at night and she misses him and asks him to sing to her
a/n: i’m trying something new. listen to the song for a nice lil touch (aka i put the telephone filter on the audio to make it sound like he’s singing through the phone but idk if it really got the effect)
Shawn was sitting on the lounge in the back of the tour bus, feet propped up on the couch, swiftly moving the sticks and knobs on the controller. “Fuck!” He sighed, tossing the controller onto the cushion next to him.
Matt laughed, high-fiving Mike. “Yeah! Nice job!” He cheered, going back to the menu.
The three men looked at Shawn’s phone when it started ringing, and the screen lit up, showing who was calling. “Isn’t it like, two in the morning there?” Mike asked, glancing at Shawn.
The singer nodded, and picked his phone up. “Hello?” He answered, walking out to the front of the bus, and sitting down. Everyone else was in the other bus, celebrating the show, but Shawn didn’t feel up to a party tonight. “Babe? You there?” He asked, worrying his bottom lip.
Your sniffles and tear-filled voice sent Shawn into overdrive. “Y-yeah.”
“Honey, what’s wrong?”
“I just- I miss you. A lot. And I can’t sleep, but I really need to sleep. And- and I miss you.” You said, voice cracking.
Shawn felt his heart break at what his girlfriend said. He knew the long-distance would put a strain on their relationship, because both of them were hands-on people. It’s like being without your other half, you don’t feel whole. “Baby,” He said, sitting on the couch. “I miss you too, hun. But, you need to sleep. I’ll see you in a couple of weeks. Less than that, even.”
“I know, but it’s not the same bed without you. It’s cold. And lonely.” You confided, and Shawn felt his shoulders fall. “Can you sing to me?” You asked, voice so quiet Shawn almost didn’t hear you over the phone.
“Sure, honey. What do you want me to sing?” He asked, grabbing the guitar that was leaning against the corner of the bus.
“Lego House?” You suggested, since that was one of your favorite songs, and you loved when Shawn covered it.
“Sure, sure.” He said, walking into the back of the bus, and nodding his head to the front, kicking his friends out. But, they were ok with it, since they knew Shawn wouldn’t do that unless it was important. “I’m going to put you on speaker, ok baby?” He propped his phone up on the small shelf in front of him, and started strumming the guitar.
By the end of the song, Shawn could hear your soft breaths, and faint snores. He smiled to himself, and set the guitar down. “See you soon, love.” He said, hanging up, and leaving a text for you to wake up to.
a/n: i know i said this wouldn’t be posted for a while, but tbh, i couldn’t wait to get it out lmao. let me know what you think of this, and if i should write more stuff and add the music i’m listening to when writing it? (it makes it more emotional in my opinion)
