So, Claire and HRG are pretty much my favorite characters on Heroes. The relationship between them has evolved incredibly over the season, and has made for - at least to me - one of the most interesting and sometimes heartbreaking storylines of the show. I love that HRG is such a layered character, and the fact that he's been risking everything for almost 16 years to protect his daughter, who is, ironically, indestructable. And I love Claire because... well, who doesn't love Claire?
This mix takes place over the entire course of the season up to about 1x18. It was created before the reunion in 1x21, which is why it ends with HRG sending Claire away at the end of 1x17. Enjoy. :)
01.the classic crime - headlights [here]
love is empty, love is cruel, love it blindly breaks the rules.
how could you have been a fool?
it's something all of us go through.
02.fair - carelessness [here]
carelessness is something I recognize
when youre fast asleep and I'm in the right.
taking in everything you ignore,
my abrasiveness and your angelcore.
03.midtown - until it kills [here]
keep them safe from what you'll discover,
keep them safe from harm,
keep them safe inside your home,
if it kills you.
04.emery - in a lose, lose situation [here]
deciding as I wait for it to entertain,
careful not to breathe in, to breathe in, to breathe in.
the right time and the right way to elevate,
careful not to breathe in, to breathe in, to breathe in,
to breathe in the air
that so proudly puts to death
my own fathers name.
I remember when your hands started shaking.
there’s a better way
to clean out the mess you’ve been making.
05.emery - the weakest [here]
point the gun.
just pretend that it is time.
say the word and i will fire.
sometimes i get so sick of their lies,
it's worth more than my life.
say the word and i will die.
there's no peaceful passing
of this new sickness that I
have introduced to everyone around me.
06.paramore - let this go [here]
maybe if my heart stops beating
it wont hurt this much,
and never will I have to
answer again to anyone.
please don't get me wrong,
because I'll never let this go.
but I can't find the words to tell you
I don't want to be alone,
but now I feel like I don't know you.
07.stars - the big fight [here]
how could you do it?
i couldnt say.
years built on sand,
june until may.
second to second,
lied even while you held my hand.
it's death for the living,
yes i am a ghost.
the mirror is cloudy.
I loved you the most.
you threw out the pieces,
did things we didnt understand.
08.snow patrol - wow [here]
just because I couldn't say doesn't make me a liar.
I noticed a change in the tone of your voice,
it's so clear.
my role in this mess
is not something that I can be proud of.
but it's all going to change,
yes, it's all going to change.
09.unkle bob - swans [here]
you tell me that you love me
but you never want to see me again.
10.straylight run - a slow descent [here]
cynical and broken, but wiser.
heavy with a sense of resentment,
but i used to be so much different,
I used to have so much faith
when I started.
you knew that I always meant it.
11.maria taylor - clean getaway [here]
i finally made it,
i made a clean getaway.
and i miss you,
i miss you every single day.
