Already Home - A Great Big World

You say love is what you put into it. You say that I’m losing my will. Don’t you know that you’re all that I think about? You make up a half of the whole.

You say that it’s hard to commit to it. You say that it’s hard standing still. Don’t you know that I spend all my nights counting backwards the days ‘til I’m home?

If only New York wasn’t so far away. I promise the city won’t get in our way. When you’re scared and alone, just know that I’m already home.

I say that we’re right in the heart of it - a love only we understand. I will bend every light in this city, and make sure they’re shining on you.

If only New York wasn’t so far away. I promise the city won’t get in our way. When you’re scared and alone, just know that I’m already home.

When life takes it’s own course, sometimes we just don’t get to choose. I’d rather be there next to you. Promise you’ll wait for me, wait for me? Wait 'til I’m home.

All I have is this feeling inside of me. The only thing I’ve ever known.

If only New York wasn’t so far away. I promise the city won’t get in our way. When you’re scared and alone, just know that I’m already home.

If only New York wasn’t so far away. I will be there every step of the way. When you’re scared and alone, just know that I’m already home.


Just know that I’m already home.

It’s strange how you can fall in love with someone’s existence, even when they are not present

(A/N: I’m lowkey in love with Christina Perri and this song. So what to do besides write a fic based on the song. Angsty, which is my forte, but it’s an angsty Bucky fic the likes of which you haven’t read since Supernatural stuff. So I’m sorrynotsorry. Also, for any military wives/girlfriends/significant others, you may relate.

Pairing: Bucky Barnes x Reader

Warnings: Death, swearing.

Word Count: 3k )

You knew the risks long before you started a relationship with Bucky Barnes. You knew what it would mean when he went out of missions and you knew what it would be like to wait anxiously by the phone. You’d dated military men before, though this was different. One of the only things that helped you through it, you knew, was the fact that Bucky Barnes wasn’t like the rest of the men you’d dated. No, he was different. He wasn’t the same fragile human the rest of them were. He was stronger.

And while you did feel more confident when he was gone, that stinging, worrying sensation was still there. It was the same thing that made you look out the window on rainy days and realize he was out there somewhere without you. He was alone, and he was worrying just as much as you were.
