Why would we change a thing?Warnings:
Contains quotes and images from season one.Notes:
A very-late-birthday gift for my one and only special geek friend. You have helped me with this, though I'm not sure if you remember cause it was ages ago. Part of the conversations has been deleted or otherwise it would eat space.
Cause you are my Manhattan from the sky
You look so neat and tidy when I'm way up high
But I know your streets are lined with a fine mess inside
I wanna come down and walk around your mind
I saw you dancing
And I couldn't get you off my mind
I could tell that you could tell
That I was taking my time
But I was thinking of ways
To get you to stay tonight
Now I'm twisted up when I'm twisted with you
Brush so lightly
And time trickles down, and I'm breathing for two
Squeeze so tightly
I'll be fine, you'll be fine
This moment seems so long
Don't waste new, precious time
We'll dance inside the song
What makes the want to shake you down?
Each touch belongs to each new sound
Say now you want to shake me too
Move down to me, slip into you
Thanks for the lift home Chuck:
You were amazing up there
You sure? Is this coincidence or a sign?
Is the anything I've missed?
Is there anything I missed?
Tell me if I’m wrong,
but why would we change a thing?
When we met I was on my back.
I swear we spent most afternoons
somewhere in the act.
We were part of something ours,
and ours alone.
Anywhere was home.
'Cause no one loves you more than I do
They don't see you like I do, baby
They'll try to, but if only they knew
They'll never come close to you
And you brighten up the world with your eyes
And you're so damn lonely when you're on my mind
'Cause you're the only oneBlair:
Enough with the blackmail, aren't you bored already? I can't avoid Nate forever.Chuck:
I didn't say forever, just until the sight of you two together doesn't turn my stomach.Blair:
And when will that be?Chuck:
Only time will tell, I'm afraid. So unless you want dear Nathaniel to know how you lost your virginity to me in the back of a moving vechicle, I encourage patience and restraint.Blair:
Isn't there someone else you can torture?
Chuck: Probably, but I choose you
I watch you spin around in your highest heels
You are the best one, of the best ones
We all look like we feel
You have stolen my
You have stolen my heart
Blair: Do you like me?
Chuck: (after a pause) Define like.
Blair: Oh. You have got to be kidding. I do not believe this.
Chuck: How do you think I feel? I haven't slept. I feel sick, like there's something in my stomach... fluttering.
Blair: Butterflies? Oh, no, no, no, no. This is not happening.
Chuck: Believe me, no one is more surprised, or ashamed than I am.
Blair: Chuck, you know that I adore all of God's creatures and the metaphors that they inspire. But, these butterflies? Got to be murdered.
He respects my space
And never makes me wait
And he calls exactly when he says he will.
He’s close to my mother
Talks business with my father.
He’s charming and endearing
And I’m comfortable.
But I miss screamin’ and fightin’ and kissin’ in the rain
And it’s 2am and I’m cursin’ your name.
You’re so in love that you act insane
And that’s the way I loved you.
And when she says she wants somebody else,
I hope you know she doesn’t mean you.
And when she breaks down and makes a sound,
You'll never hear her the way that I do.
And when she says she wants someone to love,
I hope you know she doesn’t mean you.
And when she breaks down and lets you down,
I hope you know that she...
She doesn’t mean you, yeah.Chuck:
Yes, Nathaniel! I took what Blair kept throwing at you and you kept throwing back.Nate:
So, somehow you screwing Blair as a sport is my fault!?Chuck:
It wasn't for sport! She needed someone and I was there.Nate:
Oh, so you cared about her?Chuck:
You guys were broken up.Nate:
How long? A week? An hour?Chuck:
Look, I'm sorry. But I know how long you and I have been best friends, okay?Nate:
No, it's not okay, Chuck. From now on, you stay away from me.
Every day is a brand new day to turn this life around
And do what we want to, be who we want to
They say be patient and wait for a sign
But some people wait for a lifetime
Like the first time I saw your eyes
I hope it's the last time we say goodbye
Wherever tomorrow's roads may lead you
I hope the happiness it brings you
Is everything you wanted to find
And you change your mind
Chuck: I'd like to propose a toast. My father is someone who goes after what he wants. And Lily van der Woodsen was no exception. In typical Bass-man fashion his pursuit was direct and at times not exactly subtle. One thing I learned from my father's courtship of Lily is the importance of perseverance. That in the face of true love you don't just give up, even if the object of your affection is begging you to. One thing I learned from Lily is the importance of forgiveness. She gave my father the gift of a second chance and, in kind, I watched him become someone actually worthy of that gift. And one day I hope I'll be lucky enough to find someone who will do the same for me. To the happy couple!
In a way I know my heart is waking up
As all the walls come tumbling down
I'm closer than I've ever felt before
And I know
And you know
There's no need for words right nowBlair:
That was quite a speech. Your hard work must have paid off.Chuck:
It wasn't what I wrote. I was inspired - in the moment. Look, I know I said some horrible things. Even for me.Blair:
You mean, blogging to Gossip Girl about our sex life and comparing me to your father's sweaty old horse? Chuck:
What's your point? Blair:
What's yours? Chuck:
You don't belong with Nate. Never have, never will. Blair:
You don't belong with anyone.
Let's take it slow this time. Do it right.Blair:
Egh... Chuck Bass is a romantic, who knew?Chuck:
Now you do, and that's all that matters.Oh, happily ever after, wouldn't you know, wouldn't you know.
Oh, skip to the ending, who'd like to know, I'd like to know.
Author of the moment, can you tell me, do I end up, do I end up happy?
Inhale, breathe steady, exhale, like you're ready, if you're ready or not.
Just a boy and a girl trying to take on the world, and we want to get caught.
In the middle of a very happy ending, let's see what we've got, let's give it a shot.
Let's give it a shot.
We all want to know, how it ends.Amelia:
I was hoping we could discuss what you have planned for my room.Amelia:
And who are you?Chuck:
I'm Chuck Bass.
