Rachel and Santana started to develop feelings for each other during their last year of high school, but their insecurities and the idea that the other was happy with their respective partners always kept them apart. It wasn't until the last month of school that they started a friendship that only made their feelings stronger, but they never did anything about it.
After a talk with Santana, in which Finn understood the importance of Rachel's dreams and hopes, he lets her go and Rachel starts the biggest adventure of her life, but Santana feeling lonely decides to stay behind in Lima waiting to see if she could salvage her relationship with Brittany. Rachel and Santana lost contact and things didn't work between Santana and Brittany, so the brunette decided to leave Ohio to try to find out her true vocation.
Time goes by, and without even realizing it, it's been ten years.
Rachel is a Broadway actress and has achieved most of her dreams and Santana has just moved to New York from Los Angeles because of her successful writing career as a novelist.
In a melancholic moment, she decides to go for a walk in the city, until she reaches a theater with a big marquee and Rachel's name in lights. She decides to walk away thinking that by now Rachel is not only a star, but probably she is also married to some Broadway version of Finn Hudson and has 2.5 kids, but she is stopped by Rachel's voice. She looks so happy to see her that Santana can't help but hugging her back and smile sincerely for the first time in a long time.
And they find each other again and learn to know each other, and this time there isn't any obstacle in their way.
Gravity | Sara Bareilles
I live here on my knees
as I try to make you see that you're everything I think I need
here on the ground.
But you're neither friend nor foe
though I can't seem to let you go.
Poison & wine | The Civil Wars
I wish you'd hold me when I turn my back
The less I give the more I get back
Your hands can heal, your hands can bruise
I don't have a choice, but I'd still choose you
I don't love you, but I always will.
Going away to college | Blink 182
Is my picture still hanging in her locker?
I haven't been this scared in a long time
And I'm so unprepared so here's your valentine
Bouquet of clumsy words, a simple melody
This world's and ugly place, but you're so beautiful to me.
Just like heaven | The Cure
I open up my eyes
I find myself alone, alone, alone
Above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me.
New York State of Mind | Barbra Streisand
I don't care if it's Chinatown or up on riverside
I don't have any reasons
I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind
Who says | John Mayer
Who says I can't be free?
From all of the things that I used to be
Re-write my history
Who says I can't be free?
Who says I can't get stoned?
Call up a girl that I used to know
It's been a long night in New York City
It's been a long time since 20 too
I don't remember you looking any better
Save me from myself | Christina Aguilera
It's not so easy loving me It gets so complicated, all the things you gotta be
Everything's changing, but you're the truth
I'm amazed by all your patience, everything I put you through
And when I'm about to fall
Somehow you're always waiting, with your open arms to catch me
You're gonna save me from myself
Tu boca | Cabas
Sabes que hace tanto me la paso vagabundeando
sin saber que estoy probando y delirando con tu boca
tu boca, tu boca, tu boca
Y cuando al fin te veo siento cómo tu cuerpo
sigue tan mojado y mis labios están tan secos…
Heartbeats | José Gonzalez
One night of magic rush
The start of simple touch
One night to push and scream
and then relief
Ten days of perfect tunes
The colors red and blue
We had a promise made
we were in love
You’re what I’m looking for | Rooney
I met you at a time in my life when I was lost, when I was down,
And every hope had hit the ground
I couldn't see how good you were, I was blind
I didn't know what I was looking for
It's funny sometimes how it all comes around
Like a sound and like a style, it's lost and it's found
Now it's the time to call it a day
It's getting old, it's getting late
There's only so much I can say
When I look at you, my troubles all go away
I'm someone new, it feels just like a new day
When you hold me tight, I get lost in your arms
I know tonight I've finally found what I'm looking for
You know you're what I'm looking for
Bonus Track: My same | Adele
You said I'm stubborn
And I never give in
I think you're stubborn
Except you're always softening
You say I'm selfish
I agree with you on that
I think you're giving out
In way too much in fact
You're so provocative
I'm so conservative
You're so adventurous
I'm so very cautious
We would and we do
But we do
