There and Back Again – A Jace/Clary Fanmix

 

 

1.        You Found Me – Kelly Clarkson

 

Listen on YouTube ; Read the Lyrics 

 

“I thought I made you feel unsettled.”

“It’s been so long,” [Jace] said simply, “that I think I was unsettled by the idea of feeling like I belonged anywhere. But you made me feel like I belong.”

[CoB, 482]

 

And I was hiding

‘Til you came along

And showed me where I belong

You found me

When no one else was lookin’

How did you know?

How did you know?

 

2.        Holiday – Boys Like Girls

 

Listen on YouTube ; Read the Lyrics

 

He said nothing, only whispered something under his breath. She couldn’t quite hear the words, but she reached out and took the bit of glass out of his hand. He was bleeding where he’d held it, from two fine and narrow gashes. She put the shard down and took his hand, closing his fingers over the injured palm. “Honestly, Jace,” she said, as gently as she’d touched him, “don’t you know better than to play with broken glass?”

He made a sound like a choked laugh before he reached out and pulled her into his arms. She was aware of Luke watching them from the window, but she shut her eyes resolutely and buried her face against Jace’s shoulder. He smelled of salt and blood, and only when his mouth came close to her ear did she understand what he was saying, what he had been whispering before, and it was the simplest litany of all: her name, just her name.

[CoB, 466]

 

When I was younger I used to be wild

As wild as an elephant’s child

No one could hold me down

No one could keep me around

Now it’s your turn, take a shot

Baby, show me everything that you got

Maybe you can keep me alive

Maybe you can get in my mind

 

3.        The Way – Clay Aiken

She looked up from closing [her bag] to find Jace watching her through hooded eyes. “And one last thing,” he said. He reached over and pulled the sparkling pins out of her hair, so that it fell in warm and heavy curls down her neck. The sensation of hair tickling her bare skin was unfamiliar and oddly pleasant.

“Much better,” he said, and she thought this time that maybe his voice was slightly uneven too.

[CoB, 214]

 

There’s something ‘bout the way you look tonight

There’s something ‘bout the way that I can’t take my eyes off you

There’s something ‘bout the way your lips invite

Maybe it’s the way that I get nervous when you’re around

 

4.        Learning to Fall – Boys Like Girls

 

Listen on YouTube ; Read the Lyrics 

 

“…you’ve decided your old friend Simon makes a useful distraction?”

“It’s not like that,” she said. “I love Simon.”

“Like you love Luke,” said Jace. “Like you love your mother.”

“No.” Her voice was as cold and pointed as an icicle. “Don’t tell me what I feel.”

A small muscle jumped at the side of his mouth. “I don’t believe you.”

What do you want me to tell you? The truth? The truth is that I love Simon like I should love you, and I wish he was my brother and you weren’t, but I can’t do anything about that and neither can you!”

[CoA, 181]

 

Could you be with him?

Or was it just a lie?

He doesn’t catch you like I do

And you don’t know why

 

5.        All That I’m Living For – Evanescence

 

Listen on YouTube ; Read the Lyrics 

 

Jace did not reply, but his sick look of nauseous horror was enough for Clary. … “Tell me it’s not true,” [he] said, staring at the tablecloth.

[CoB, 441—442]

 

Should it hurt to love you?

Should I feel like I do?

Should I lock the last open door,

My ghosts are gaining on me

 

6.        Just So You Know – Jesse McCartney

 

Listen on YouTube ; Read the Lyrics 

 

“It doesn’t matter what we feel. There’s nothing we can do. … This, what we want, it would be sickening to everyone we care about—”

Sickening?” … What we feel—what I feel—it’s sickening to you?”

She caught her breath at the look on his face. “Maybe,” she said in a whisper. “I don’t know.”

“Then you should have said that to begin with.”

[CoA, 182—183]

 

It’s gettin’ hard to

Be around you

There’s so much I can’t say

Do you want me to hide the feelings

And look the other way?

 

7.        Tangled Up In Me – Skye Sweetnam

 

Listen on YouTube ; Read the Lyrics 

 

“Then why?” His voice shook. “Why all this with Simon, why keep pushing me away, not letting me near you—”

“Because it’s impossible,” she said, and the last word came out as a sort of wail, despite her efforts at control. “You know that as well as I do!”

[CoA, 180]

 

Can’t you see I want you by the way I push you away?

 

8.        Hate That I Love You – Rihanna (feat. Ne-Yo)

 

Listen on YouTube ; Read the Lyrics

 

“I don’t hate you, Jace.”

“I don’t hate you, either.”

She looked up at him, relieved. “I’m glad to hear that—”

“I wish I could hate you,” he said. His voice was light, his mouth curved in an unconcerned half smile, his eyes sick with misery. “I want to hate you. I try to hate you. It would be so much easier if I did hate you. Sometimes I think I do hate you and then I see you and I—”

Her hands had grown numb with their grip on the blanket. “And you what?”

“What do you think?”

[CoA, 244]

 

And I hate that I love you, girl

I can’t stand how much I need you

And I hate how much I love you, girl

But I just can’t let you go

But I hate that I love you so

 

9.        Promise – Simple Plan

[Jace’s POV]

 

Listen on YouTube ; Read the Lyrics 

 

“I’ll just be your brother from now on,” he said, looking at her with a hopeful expectation that she would be pleased, which made her want to scream that he was smashing her heart into pieces and he had to stop. “That’s what you wanted, isn’t it?”

It took her a long time to answer, and when she did, her own voice sounded like an echo, coming from very far away. “Yes,” she said, and she heard the rush of waves in her ears, and her eyes stung as if from sand or salt spray. “That’s what I wanted.”

[CoA, 251]

 

I just wanted to say

That I’m sick of these fights

I’ll let you be right

If it stops you from running away

 

10.     What I Didn’t Say – Saving Jane

[Clary’s POV]

 

Listen on YouTube ; Read the Lyrics 

 

“I’ll just be your brother from now on,” he said, looking at her with a hopeful expectation that she would be pleased, which made her want to scream that he was smashing her heart into pieces and he had to stop. “That’s what you wanted, isn’t it?”

It took her a long time to answer, and when she did, her own voice sounded like an echo, coming from very far away. “Yes,” she said, and she heard the rush of waves in her ears, and her eyes stung as if from sand or salt spray. “That’s what I wanted.”

[CoA, 251]

 

So I let you go

And I watch you leave

And I hold my breath

So you don’t hear me scream

When you walk away

But the words are only in my head

It’s not what I said

It’s what I didn’t say

 

11.     Addicted – Simple Plan

 

Listen on YouTube ; Read the Lyrics 

 

He leaned against the door frame, ignoring the kick of adrenaline the sight of her produced. He wondered why, not for the first time. Isabelle used her beauty like she used her whip, but Clary didn’t know she was beautiful at all. Maybe that was why. … She took a deep breath and looked up at him. Her eyes were full of uncertainty. An unfamiliar urge rose inside him: the urge to put his arms around her and tell her it was all right.

[CoB, 323—324]

 

I’m trying to forget that

I’m addicted to you

But I want it, and I need it

I’m addicted to you

 

12.     Honey – Bobby Goldsboro

 

Listen on YouTube ; Read the Lyrics

 

Don’t think about Jace, she told herself fiercely, but looking at herself in the mirror, she saw her eyes darken and knew her body remembered even if her mind didn’t want to.

[CoA, 92]

 

And, honey, I miss you

And I’m bein’ good

And I’d love to be with you

If only I could

 

13.     Where Is Your Heart – Kelly Clarkson

 

Listen on YouTube ; Read the Lyrics 

 

“Stop it,” she said. “Stop being like that.”

His smile widened. “Like what?”

“If you’re angry, just say it. Don’t act like nothing ever touches you. It’s like you never feel anything at all.”

[CoB, 318]

 

Where is your heart?

‘Cause I don’t really feel you

Where is your heart?

What I really want is to believe you

Is it so hard to give me what I need?

I want your heart to bleed

And that’s all I’m asking for

Where is your heart?

 

14.     Do You? – Yiruma

 

Listen on YouTube

 

The leaves on the shrub hung still and motionless. Suddenly one of the tightly closed buds began to quiver and tremble. It swelled to twice its size and burst open. It was like watching a speeded-up film of a flower blooming: the delicate green sepals opening outward, releasing the clustered petals inside. They were dusted with pale gold pollen as light as talcum.

“Oh!” said Clary, and looked up to find Jace watching her. “Do they bloom every night?”

“Only at midnight,” he said. “Happy birthday, Clarissa Fray.”

She was oddly touched. “Thank you.”

[CoB, 312]

 

Instrumental

 

15.     With Me – Sum 41

 

Listen on YouTube ; Read the Lyrics

 

“No. You’re not sorry. Don’t be sorry.” He moved toward her, almost tripping over his feet—Jace, who never stumbled, never tripped over anything, never made an ungraceful move. His hands came up to cup her face; she felt the warmth of his fingertips, millimetres from her skin; knew she ought to pull away, but stood frozen, staring up at him. “You don’t understand,” he said. His voice shook. “I’ve never felt this way about anyone. I didn’t think I could. I thought—the way I grew up—my father—”

“To love is to destroy,” she said numbly. “I remember.”

“I thought that part of my heart was broken,” he said, and there was a look on his face as he spoke as if he were surprised to hear himself saying these words, saying my heart. “Forever.”

[CoA, 182]

 

Through it all, I’ve made my mistakes

I stumble and fall, but I mean these words

I want you to know, through everything I won’t let this go

These words are my heart and soul

I’ll hold on to this moment you know

As I bleed my heart out to show, and I won’t let go

 

16.     Angel – Sarah McLachlan

 

Listen on YouTube ; Read the Lyrics

 

The ground was heaving up and down under her feet. “Jace,” she said, and she crumpled into him. He caught her as if he were used to catching fainting girls, as if he did it every day. Maybe he did. He swung her up into his arms, saying something in her ear that sounded like Convenant.

[CoB, 55]

 

You’re in the arms of the angel

May you find some comfort here

 

17.     Speechless – The Veronicas

 

Listen on YouTube ; Read the Lyrics

 

The image of Simon rose up behind [Clary’s] eyes. Simon the last time she had seen him, staring after her as she ran out of Java Jones. She turned back to the poster, blinking. “No reason.”

“I see,” Jace said, and she could tell from his voice that he did see, more than she wanted him to.

[CoB, 101]

 

‘Cause you leave me speechless

When you talk to me

You leave me breathless

The way you look at me

You managed to disarm me

My soul is shining through

Can’t help but surrender

My everything to you

[Art by my awesome friend Rae. Go check her out. She’s amazing. <3]
