my love is priceless

Please note: This is the antithesis of a Chuck/Blair mix. Rather, it's what happens when Blair Waldorf decides she deserves better than this.

01. La Roux - Not Your Toy

I'm not your toy
This isn't another girl meets boy
Love, love hides in a smoky light
And I can never find the truth
Boy, your touches leave me mystified
And I wish I could believe in you

02. Oh Land - Son of a Gun

Once burned, twice shy
Too much of your line made me blind
I'd wait all night
But you left one too many times
I want to change my orbit

Don't care what you do now
I want to live in darkness
Don't want to be spun around
You go down, down, down
I fall out of love with you
Come back round, round, round
You son of a gun

03. Natalia Kills - Broken

But if I had a dime for every single time
I should have said 'Goodbye'
I'd be a millionaire
But I don't cause you left me broke

My love is priceless
Can't buy my time back
So let's forget all our regrets
And keep the change
You don't define me
Only remind me
I'd rather beg than live that lie
with you again

If I am giving
I'm giving up
I'm empty handed
You took enough

04. The Bird and the Bee - Because

Because because
I'm sick of all the bones you throw
Because because
There's nothing from the seeds you sow
Because because
I can't remember why I'm here
Because because
It's all become so crystal clear

And when I'm tired, I'm so very tired
And when it's done, it's like I've killed someone

05. Priscilla Renea - Dollhouse

Like it or not, maybe things were changing
Right before our eyes
I tried to be your picture perfect girl
But you were in your own fantasy world
Trying to control me like some kind of Barbie
But that just ain't me

I ain't a doll; this ain't a dollhouse
You're way too old to be
Putting me down like this
And playing around like this; I ain't a doll
This ain't a dollhouse

No I could never be stuck living life like this
Behind these four walls I ain't a doll
I'll never be made of plastic
So glad that my heart's elastic
No matter what you do I'll bounce back off of you
Cut me but I'm not bleeding

06. Donora - If You See My Boyfriend

Well, he's been unkind to me and he's been in true
Sometimes I don't know what I should do

If you see my boyfriend
Tell him I've left him for a guy who wants to hold my hand

07. Stars - Life Effect

Who made you happy last night?
I don't know his name but christ can he fight
As I fell he told me you had a light
A light that shone inside you

I found myself a decent man now
I love him because I can
The bravest that I've ever been was when I ran away from you.

And so we disconnect, the room goes quiet around us
It's called the life effect, will it always surround us?
And so we disconnect, the room goes quiet around us
Nothing left to protect, the end has finally found us.

The day's almost over, it's almost time for bed
Some now you've finally lost me, rest your weary head.

this would not have been possible without natasha's texture packs that got me through my photoshopping. thanks, natasha!

Gorgeous mix, such well-selected songs! They fit Blair's situation to a tee, love this trufax line especially:

If you see my boyfriend
Tell him I've left him for a boy who wants to hold my hand

How people can still ship Blair/Chuck is one of the greatest mysteries of the universe...

(Also I love how you ship them so hard despite not watching the show really...:p I wish the writers would take note).
