double mix: dream maker; heart breaker // my huckleberry friend

Sad Dan/Blair break-up songs! You know you want and need them. No spoilers for 6x01.

WARNING: Very, very image heavy. And very, very sad.
I don't even know anymore. So, these are the saddest break-up mixes that ever were sad, because Dan and Blair are the tear that hangs inside my soul forever and stuff. I started them weeks before DB actually broke up and was finished with the playlist months ago - but I never had any time for the art, so when I realised Gossip Girl's new season was about to air I just PANICKED and... did this? It's not at all how I usually do it or how I wanted it to be and maybe one day I'll redo the art, but for now it is what it is.

margottenenbaum is the greatest lady in the world, the wind beneath my wings, etc. I would love to just give the mixes to her, but that would be the LAMEST present ever because she basically made them. Literally. So many song choices are hers! She even made me art! Can we all agree that she's the best ever?

"dream maker; heart breaker"
01. last goodbye

just hear this and then I'll go
you gave me more to live for
more than you'll ever know

kiss me, please kiss me
but kiss me out of desire, babe,
and not consolation

this is our last embrace
must I dream
and always see your face

why can't we overcome this wall?
well, maybe it's just because
i didn't know you at all

02. all because of you days

you just can't get out
you just can't get in
everything just has strung you up, hung you up
to watch you swing

nothing gets you up
nothing gets you high

everything just comes to this
final mistaken lives
and it's goodbye,
goodbye all my new days

goodbye, all those chosen few days
goodbye, all because of you days

03. where do you go to (my lovely)
they say that when you get married
it'll be to a millionaire

but they don't realize where you came from
and I wonder if they really care
they give a damn
where do you go to my lovely
when you're alone in your bed
tell me the thoughts that surround you
i want to look inside your head
so look into my face, Marie-Claire,
and remember just who you are

then go and forget me forever

but I know you still bear the scar, deep inside,
yes you do
i know where you go to my lovely
when you're alone in your bed
i know the thoughts that surround you
`cause I can look inside your head

04. skinny love

come on skinny love just last the year
pour a little salt, we were never here

i tell my love to wreck it all
cut out all the ropes and let me fall

in the morning I'll be with you
but it will be a different kind
ill be holding all the tickets
and you'll be owning all the fines

and now all your love is wasted
and who the hell was I?

i'm breaking at the bridges
and at the end of all your lines

who will love you?
who will fight?
who will fall far behind?

05. miss misery

two tickets torn in half
and a lot of nothing to do

do you miss me, miss misery
like you say you do?

had plans for both of us
that involved a trip out of town
to a place Ive seen in a magazine
that you left lying around

do you miss me, miss misery,
like you say you do?

06. the trickster
rust in the mountains
rust in the brain

the air is sacred here
in spite of your claim

up on the the rooftops
out of reach
trickster is meaningless
trickster is weak

he's talking out the world
talking out the world

I wanted you so bad
that I couldn't say
these things fall apart

we wanted out so bad
that we couldn't say
all things fall apart

we're talking out the world
talking out the world
this is only halfway
this is only halfway

07. so cruel
we crossed the line
who pushed who over?

it doesn't matter to you
it matters to me

i disappeared in you
you disappeared from me

I gave you everything you ever wanted
it wasn't what you wanted
the men who love you, you hate the most
they pass right through you like a ghost
they look for you, but your spirit is in the air

baby, you're nowhere
oh love,
you say in love there are no rules
oh love,

you're so cruel
desparation is a tender trap
it gets you every time

her skin is pale like God's only dove
screams like an angel for your love

then she makes you watch her from above
and you need her like a drug

she wears my love like a
see-through dress

her lips say one thing
her movements something else

oh love,
to stay with you I'd be a fool
you're so cruel

08. pictures of you
I've been looking so long at these pictures of you
That I almost believe that they're real
I've been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures are
All I can feel
you standing quiet in the rain
as I ran to your heart to be near
and we kissed as the sky fell in

holding you close
how I always held close in your fear

you running soft through the night
you were bigger and brighter and whiter than snow
and screamed at the make-believe
screamed at the sky
and you finally found all your courage
to let it all go
you fallen into my arms
Crying for the death of your heart

you were stone white
So delicate
lost in the cold

you were always so lost in the dark
you were angels
so much more than everything
hold for the last time then slip away quietly
open my eyes
but I never see anything

looking so long at these pictures of you
but I never hold on to your heart

looking so long for the words to be true
but always just breaking apart
my pictures of you
there was nothing in the world
that I ever wanted more
than to feel you deep in my heart

there was nothing in the world
that I ever wanted more

"my huckleberry friend"
01. the way things are
i wouldn't know what to do with another chance
if you gave it to me
I couldn't take the embrace of a real romance
it'd race right through me
i'm much better off the way things are
much much better off
better by far
I wouldn't know what to say to a gentle voice
it'd roll right past me

and if you chalk it up you'll see
I don't really have a choice
so don't even ask me

I'm much better off, the way things are
much much better off, better by far

02. will you still love me tomorrow
tonight you're mine completely
will you love me tomorrow?

is this a lasting treasure
or just a moment's pleasure?
can I believe the magic of your sighs?
will you still love me tomorrow?
tonight with words unspoken
you say that I'm the only one
but will my heart be broken
when the night meets the morning star?

i'd like to know that your love
is love I can be sure of
will you still love me tomorrow?
will you still love me tomorrow?

03. heavy in your arms
I was a heavy heart to carry
my beloved was weighed down
my arms around his neck
my fingers laced to crown
my love has concrete feet
my love's an iron ball

wrapped around your ankles
over the waterfall

I'm so heavy
heavy in your arms

I'm so heavy
heavy in your arms
and was it worth the wait
all this killing time?

are you strong enough to stand
protecting both your heart and mine?
this will be my last confession
'I love you' never felt like any blessing

whispering like it's a secret
only to condemn the one who hears it
with a heavy heart
I was a heavy heart to carry
but he never let me down
when he had me in his arms
my feet never touched the ground

04. it ain't me, babe
go away from my window
leave at your own chosen speed

I'm not the one you want, babe
I'm not the one you need
I'm not the one you want, babe
I will only let your down

you say you're lookin' for someone
who will promise never to part

someone to close her eyes for you
someone to close her heart

a lover for you life and nothing more
but it ain't me, babe
no, no, no, it ain't me, babe
it ain't me you're lookin' for, babe

05. light of some kind
we both know what I've been doing
I've been intentionally bad at lying
you're the only boy I ever let see through me
and i hope you believe me when I say I'm trying

and I still think of you as my boyfriend
I don't think this is the end of the world

but I think maybe you should follow my example
and go meet yourself a really nice girl
in the end the world comes down to just a few people
but for you it comes down to one

but no one ever asked me if I thought I could be
everything to someone

you've decided to love me for eternity
I'm still deciding who I want to be today

06. homewrecker
every boyfriend is the one
until otherwise proven

the good are never easy
the easy never good

and loving never happens
like you think it really should
and I don't belong to anyone
we're all very lovely
'til we get to know each other
as we stop becoming friends
and we start becoming lovers

I guess you could say that my life's a mess
but I'm still looking pretty in this dress

instead of love
and trust and laughter

what you get
is happy never after
but deep down all you want is love
the pure kind we all dream of
but we cannot escape the past
so you and I
will never last

nobody's fault
treated you like a rusty blade
a throwaway from an open grave
cut you loose from a chain gang
and let you go

and on the day you said it's true
some love holds and some gets used
tried to tell you I never knew
it could be so sweet
tell me that it's nobody's fault
nobody's fault
but my own

tell me that it's nobody's fault
nobody's fault
but my own
tell me that it's nobody's fault
nobody's fault

but my own
better find the one that fits
better find the one that lights
the way for you
tell me that it's nobody's fault
but my own

08. my friends
my friends, my dear friends
and lovers, oh my lovers
I'd leave you for them
why do I not understand?
why don't I see what it is you see?
I'm full of guilt
I am full of guilt

you're very tall,
you're very handsome
you have it all,
your skin smells like man

And I,
you never know how I ache
you will never know how I ache
ever considered the sea?
I heard you had to be strong
why not float around with me?
it won't take you so long

you can go where I'm at
you can hang around with me

a few good men will go where they all,
where they all not be

and I long for a touch or reminder of us but,
but it must not be
I hope your mother knows where it is you have been
I hope your mother knows what it is you have seen
she'd be so proud
she will never know how I ache
