Disclaimer; I own nothing but the plot and baby Lily. The song belongs to The Valli Girls and everything else belongs to JK Rowling.

Author's Note; Okay, now this is my first song-fic! I hope you like it!

Always There in You;

Ginny Potter slowly opened her eyes, not exactly happy about woken up by a distant wailing sound coming from the nursery.

“You’re turn, I changed her. She’ll want feeding. Sadly, I can’t do that. Good luck.” Her sleepy husband whispered without even opening his eyes. Ginny turned over to face the clock which read 3: 47 AM. Groaning, she crawled out of their warm bed and slipped into her slippers and robe. Entering the nursery, she found her three month old baby girl, Lily, crying.

“Shhhh, its ok Lils. Mummy’s here. Bet you want feeding don’t you.” At hearing this, baby Lily quieted and cooed. “I’ll take that as a yes. There you go.” As Lily suckled, Ginny paced the room. She and Harry’s daughter looked exactly like the Lily Potter in Harry’s old photo album. The red hair, green eyes, and personality according to Remus. Feisty little thing, but could be very sweet. Looking down, Ginny found that Lily was done eating, but was still wide awake. Knowing the only thing to put her daughter to sleep, she started singing softly as not to wake Harry.

Baby girl
Close your eyes
You don’t know the strength
You have inside


Hugging her baby close, she continued.

If I could I’d shelter you
From all the pain
That we all must go through
But it’s up to you

The road is long
It twists and turns
But everything in life
You live and learn
No one ever said
That life was easy
Or that all in love is share
But look inside your heart
You’ll find the answer
Waiting there


Without knowing it, Ginny had grown a bit louder, as she always did, but this time, Harry had gotten up, put on his glasses, and stood in the doorway to listen to his wife sing, which she only did to Lily. She refused to let him hear at all normally, but she didn’t see him this time, so he listened.

If you ever lose your way
You don’t have to be afraid
Look inside to find a friend
Who’ll be with you to the end
Many different roads to choose
Be searching for the strength to make it through
But it was always there in you


Lily had fallen asleep by this point, but Ginny kept on singing.

Hopes can fade
And dreams can fade
Rain can fall on down
On your big parade
Maybe love will take your heart
Or break your heart
There are no guarantees
But love will always find you
When you just believe

If you ever lose your way
You don’t have to be afraid
Look inside to find a friend
Who’ll be with you to the end
Many different roads to choose
Be searching for the strength to make it through
But it was always there in you

That strength you’re longing to find
You know it’s true
It was there all the time
Every little
Stand stronger
Work harder
Reach for the sky
I know you will eventually
Belong

If you ever lose your way
You don’t have to be afraid
Look inside to find a friend
Who’ll be with you to the end
Many different roads to choose
Be searching for the strength to make it through
But it was always there
It was always there


Harry crept over to her and slowly put his strong arms around her. This made her singing considerably softer.

And it was always there
In
You


After she finished, she turned slowly to Harry, Lily still asleep in her arms.

“I’m sorry I woke you. I got caught up in the song.”

“First, you didn’t wake me, this little lady did.” He gently took Lily from Ginny’s arms and set her in her bed. Lily curled up and stayed asleep. He then turned back to Ginny and held her in his arms. “Second, you sing beautifully. Why don’t you let me listen? It’s beautiful.” He lifted up her chin and kissed her gently. When they broke apart, Ginny buried her head in his chest and mumbled,

“I don’t like people listening to my voice. Sometimes it cracks and sounds weird."

“Well, I would think it’s beautiful even if you sounded like Crookshanks, ok? I love you and won’t judge you.”

“I love you too. Can we go back to bed, I’m so tir….” Before she could answer, Harry had scooped her into his arms and took her into the bedroom. He placed her on the bed and back in his arms when he had gotten into bed also. Just like every other night, they slept in each other’s arms, happy and content.

Author's Note;

Author; So? How did I do?
Remus; I quite like that song. Where did you find it?
Author; It's on a soundtrack I have (BTW; I don't own The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants Soundtrack either). *pauses* But what do you think of the story?
Remus; Ginny reminds me of you in this story.
Author; Yes, well, I based her off of me this time. *pauses again* Is that a good thing?
Remus; Yes, a very good thing. This is my favorite story of yours so far.
Author; Aww! *blushes*

Now be sweet like Remus and REVIEW!
