Disclaimer- I do not own the song Iris, which belongs to the Goo Goo Dolls, or the books City of Bones or City of Ashes, which belong to Cassandra Clare.

This is my first song-fic so I hope you enjoy it ;p


Jace stood in front of Clary's door. She'd yelled at him again, told him to get out. She'd told him to stay away from her and Simon because all he did was cause trouble for them. But how could he stay away when she was all he ever wanted? All he ever thought about.

And I'd give up forever to touch you

'Cause I know that you feel me somehow

You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be

And I don't wanna go home right now

Clary was everything to him. In the short time they'd known each other she had become a vital part of his life and he couldn't imagine a future without her. And despite what she said he knew she felt the same. She understood him in away that no one else did, saw all the things he hid. And even though that bothered him at first he found himself wanting it, wanting to share his secrets. And now, even when she told him to leave, he couldn't make him self move, he couldn't leave her.

And all I can taste is this moment

And all I can breath is your life

'Cause sooner or later it's over

I just don't wanna miss you tonight

He looked across the room into Clarissa's eye's. They were full of misery and a longing for what she denied herself. Him. It was wrong, he was her brother. And what would it do to Simon, to find out she cheated... with her own flesh and blood. It would kill him...But she couldn't help but want Jace. She was drawn to him like a magnet. Pulled by an unseen force, and as she looked at him, looked into his smoldering eye's, she saw her torment reflected.

And I don't want the world to see me

'Cause I don't think that they'd understand

When everythings made to be broken

I just want you to know who I am

She wanted to let go of her revulsion towards dating her own brother. It was like a bad movie, some sick cosmic joke, to fall in love and be told that you were related to the only person that made you feel whole. It made her want to burst into tears. She wished she could forget, she wanted to forget, but she couldn't...Jace needed her to forget, he needed it like he needed air to breath.

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming

Or the moment of truth in your lies

When everything feels like the movies

And you bleed just to know your alive

In two quick, graceful steps he was before her. So close she could feel his breath on her face, feel the heat coming from his skin. And then, taking her face gently between his hands, he kissed her....

And she forgot.

And I don't want the world to see me

'Cause I don't think that they'd understand

When everythings made to be broken

I just want you to know who I am


Ok, I've decided that I'm going to post all my Mortal Instruments one-shots and songfics here. They won't all necessarily go together or anything but I feel like keeping them all in the same spot since they will all revolve around Jace, and Clary's messed up relationship, maybe with a bit of ClaryXSimon, ClaryXSebastian/Jonathan mixed in. So stay tuned!
