i just love messing with this album cover so much

Livestream ~ Shawn Mendes Imagine

You were laying on the bed a few feet away from Shawn as he got everything set up for his live stream on instagram.
“Make sure I’m not in the frame, please.” He looked up at me and gave me a smile.
“Don’t worry babe, I won’t.” He winked at me and I chuckled as he continued setting up.
“Why are you live streaming again?” I know he had told me, but he told me right after I had woken up so I hadn’t paid too much attention. At least not until he brought me a cup of coffee and asked me to stay in the room with him.
“I want to tell them to get the album tonight and just say hi.” I nodded in understanding and pulled his covers more up onto my shoulders.
I watched him as he went live and started strumming on his guitar while getting his small sound system to record some parts as well. I loved watching him mess around with music. It was a different kind of passion to when he was on stage. He and I both love when he sits around and plays songs on his guitar, sometimes not singing just quietly strumming while focusing on something else.
I stayed as quiet as I could during the livestream so that no one would know I was there. It wasn’t that we tried to hide our relationship, but when Shawn and I started dating we mutually agreed to keep as much of our relationship private without hiding it as we could. We wanted to have these moments together and have them be private between us.
Even with me being quiet Shawn would look up at me and smile every once and a while. I just continued to smile and watch him.
He kept it short and said goodbye to the fans. As soon as he cut the live stream I stood up from his bed, placing my coffee cup on his nightstand. I walked over to him and wrapped my arms around his waist from behind.
“I love you.” I whispered into his back. He tightened his grip on my arms and pulled me to his front.
“Love you.” He gave me a peck on the lips and I buried my head in his chest.
Both of us just took a minute to relax in each other’s embrace. Taking a moment to appreciate being with each other for a lengthy amount of time. As much as I love watching him do what he loves, it takes a toll on both of us, physically, emotionally, and mentally. So when we’re together we make sure to make every second count. Because that’s what you do. You make every second count with the ones you love.

Hey all! This came as inspiration from Shawn livestream this morning.
I may start doing more of these kinds of imagines as well as texts, twitter, and instagram ones. But let me know if you liked it!
Thanks all! 😘

Hi, I'm the anon who asked about your favorite songs from the previous albums. I totally get the stress-biting your nails, I find it impossible to choose a favorite haha. I think for + I'm gonna go with Give Me Love as well, the live version is just out of this world. But also Wake Me Up and Kiss Me...ahhh. For x it kind of depends on my mood. I love TOL but also Photograph, although I much prefer the live version of it. Or I'm A Mess, oh and Even My Dad Does Sometimes, god this is hard haha.(1)

(2) As for songs not on the albums definitely New York, but also the live version, but I also love English Rose, the lyrics are so cute? Oh and I looove Sofa and One Night. Btw, I totally agree with the anon who said he should cover JHO. Can you imagine?? I just got so excited thinking about it, holy shit. Oh, speaking of covers, what’s your favorite cover he has done? xx

Hello!! :)

Hahah, I’m so you, I love all those songs very much! Have you ever heard the remixed version of Photograph? It’s so werid and funny! They play it at my swimming pool in London, during water aerobic classes, lol!

I’d love for him to cover JHO. It’d be so cool to hear an acoustic, slow version of it! Mmm, how do you always come up with the most difficult questions?? I think I’ll have to go with Love Yourself, the one he wrote for JB (even though Pitchfork called it risible aksjha), but I feel like I’m missing a lot of covers I love at the moment, ouch. Anyway, just because Give me love really is bloody amazing live, here’s one of my favourite versions of it! <3
