As their bond turns to love, what will happen to them the next morning when Jesse flies away?

I like to feel his eyes on me when I...
Isn't everything we do in life a way to...
The answer must be in the attempt
I have an admittedly insane idea
You know what's the worst thing about...
People always talk about how love is...
Which shirt he's going to wear that day
And without making it look my whole life...
If there's any kind of magic in this...
You know what I want
I don't know
Fool around a little more
Well this was my thought
And sometimes it feels really close
Maybe we should meet here in five years...
Looking for some kind of answers
You know what drives me crazy
I wish I'd meet you earlier
Everybody's parents fucked them up
Then it's like some male fantasy
I don't think we should sleep together
If somebody gave me the choice right now
This friend of mine had a kid
Is so beautiful
I used to think that if none of your...
It's so weird
Or all this
But then the morning comes
I'm having kind of an odd situation here
I am the cow
I can never get very excited about other...
I'd love to see
Did your parents divorce
We could say goodbye now
I think so
And he says
Only if you find peace within yourself
His life was for no one and nothing
If you hadn't gotten off the train with...
I hate that
I have to say something stupid
All the time
This is the one I remember the most
You're close with your grandmother
Do you believe in reincarnation
