Nomad (2018) Movie Script

MAN: Three, two, one.
And we have liftoff, liftoff.
Sounds good, man.
Thank you.
God bless.
Hi, Jack.
It's me, Bridget.
You know.
Yeah, yeah, hi.
I saw you playing.
It sounded really good.
Thanks, thanks a lot, appreciate it.
It's good to see you're still playing.
What else have you been up to these days?
Just stuff, things, you know.
That's great.
You know it really is good to see you.
What's it been, 10 years now?
Sounds about right.
Well I'm sure you have some stories.
A few.
Well um, you know we
should grab dinner sometime,
you know, catch up.
Yeah, we should,
absolutely, sounds great.
Well, what are you doing tonight?
We're having lasagna.
Just give me a few minutes.
I gotta give the husband the 411.
You can go ahead and park behind me.
What the fuck am I doing here?
Oh, Jesus Christ, holy shit.
She's married, no big deal.
She's just married.
All righty.
So how do you two know each other?
We were in school together.
I told you about it.
I don't remember a Jack.
BRIDGET: Honey, I've mentioned him.
Well, how did you meet?
Mrs. Sullivan's class, third grade.
Good year.
Taught us how to write in cursive.
Turns out they don't
really do that anymore.
I'm not really sure why that is.
We didn't really get to know
each other until high school.
Freshman year, first game of the season.
Football player?
Drums and percussion.
Musician, man of my own heart.
Oh, you play?
I dabble.
Our football team wasn't too good,
so most of the time Jack
and I just mess around.
PAUL: I take it you
were in the marching band.
I was.
Three and a half years.
How did you manage the half?
I decided to dedicate some of my time
to some other extracurricular activities.
I took a semester of art.
Wait, you hate football.
Why were you at the
game in the first place?
Were you in marching band too?
No, I was a cheerleader.
Yeah, I was a cheerleader.
I didn't realize you had the, uh,
the, what word am I looking for?
Coordination, you know?
She was actually the head cheerleader.
The girl could move.
So what is it you do, Jack?
Like work, what's your career?
I play.
You still banging away?
Not as much as I'd
like to but yes, I bang.
Well when's your next show?
I know we'd love to come out and see you,
see you banging away
at the drums, you know.
And wouldn't that be great, sweetheart?
Yeah, it would be.
I'm actually between gigs right now.
But I'll be sure to let you both know
when I'm back on my feet.
I mean it must be tough, you know,
keeping up with the business
and consistently finding work.
So who have you played with?
What have you done?
Uh, a few big name acts.
Subbed in a tour or two.
I've worked with a lot of up
and coming talent actually.
Most of which stalled out,
but it's a process.
Right, well I'm sure
you're very talented.
Like I said, between gigs.
Ooh, sorry this is
work, I gotta take it.
I'm sorry to cut the evening
short but that was work.
They need me out on the first flight
out to Seattle.
I'm sorry.
This guy gets it.
If Phil Collins needed
a replacement drummer,
he'd be halfway around
the world, you know?
I'll be back in two days, okay?
Jack, it was great meeting you.
You too.
I'll be just a minute.
So, what's in Seattle?
Uh the Freeman deal might fall through.
They want me to do damage control.
They need you in Seattle for that?
I mean, I don't know
what you want me to do.
You know, they call me
like this every so often.
Oh my God, these fucking drawers,
can we get a new thing please?
Is he still downstairs by himself?
Oh, come on, he's fine.
Look, Bridge, I know you knew the guy
like a decade ago.
Paul, come on.
He's fine, I know him.
No, you knew him, that's what that is.
You haven't seen him in like 10 years.
He's not fine.
Look at him, he looks like Charles Manson.
Oh my god.
When's the last time he had a shower?
I smelled him from across the table.
So judgemental.
Have you seen my passport?
See what I mean?
- These fucking drawers.
- Fucking drawers.
Ah, thank you.
He's living out of a car.
What the hell were you
thinking inviting him here?
Am I the only one that's
sane in this relationship?
(SCOFFING) He's a good guy.
That's not fine.
Good guy, I don't care what he is.
He's homeless living out of his car.
Why are you bringing him into our home?
What the hell were you thinking?
Why do you need a
passport to go to Seattle?
Look, I gotta go.
I'm already late for my flight.
Get him out of here.
Homeless, what?
He cannot stay.
Jack, it was an absolute
pleasure to meet you.
You too, Paul.
PAUL: Hopefully we can
do this again sometime.
PAUL: I need to get going.
Would you like some more wine?
No, thanks.
Thank you.
Actually, I should probably get going.
What, no, no, not already.
It was great seeing you.
I really appreciate the meal.
After all this time, that's it?
Just a slice of lasagna
and a few glasses of wine?
Come on, just one more drink.
I don't know.
I wouldn't want to drink all your wine.
I'm in a club.
So, Jacky boy.
Where have you been all my life?
You know, around.
What are the odds that
we run into each other
after all this time?
Well, statistically speaking I'd say
most of our high school class
still lives in this town
so eh, like 70-30 maybe?
Did you ever call?
Excuse me?
Me, did you ever call me?
I mean, I tried.
What does that mean, you tried?
There was one night where I called you
over and over again.
But you never answered.
You were probably at a party
or studying in the library.
Massive orgy.
It was always a massive orgy
or a gangbang up at school.
Okay, those things sound fun too.
I just, I didn't want to be a burden
and it seemed like a
good idea at the time.
I just wanted you to be happy.
Well, mission accomplished.
So how much does one have to make
in order to afford a television
with a curved screen?
That is one of Paul's toys.
He loves his toys.
And what does he do?
With me?
For money.
Oh, he's in finance.
He's a consultant for some
pretty high end clients.
Hence him being called
away from his loving wife
in the middle of the night.
And he finds the money worth it?
It's a beautiful television.
It's a great picture from
anywhere in the house.
I bet.
So how did you two get together?
What's the story?
We're gonna need something
much stronger for that.
Lead the way.
BRIDGET: All right.
You know, the more you
build up anticipation,
it just, it hurts, so maybe
you should tell the story.
I'm sorry.
I'm just trying to find my courage.
Is it hidden within the vodka?
You know, I'm not too sure.
But I will look for it.
JACK: You're certainly
doing a very thorough check.
Okay, okay, okay.
So the story of me and Paul.
It was my junior year and I just finished
my last finals, so me and
a bunch of my girlfriends
are going to the city.
You know, drinks and a show.
JACK: Theater?
I was never really the theater type.
We were looking for rock, something loud.
Ooh, girl of my own heart.
(LAUGHING) So anyway we ended up in this
rundown dive bar, you know, the ones
that the hipsters turn
into an organic tea bar
five years later.
Anyway, it was taco Tuesday.
So we were devouring tacos
and downing margaritas
like the tequila fountain was dry.
How's the vodka fountain doing?
That's answers my question.
Go on, go on.
As we were enjoying our
little slices of heaven
these yuppies from Wall Street came up
and for lack of a better term
were trying to spit game.
What'd they say?
BRIDGET: That I can't really recall.
Blacked out?
No, they had had spicy tuna rolls
from that sushi bar across the street.
And their breaths collectively smelled
like fish, tuna and spicy mustard.
Ew, potent.
He was like a knight.
Gallant, brave.
Did he challenge them to a duel?
BRIGET: Um, no.
He pretended to be my lover.
But it was enough to
scare the yuppies off.
Then he bought me my fourth margarita.
What was it called?
BRIDGET: What, where we met?
Yeah, the bar, what was it called?
Uh, the Alibi Room.
No shit.
I played there.
BRIDGET: You played at the Alibi Room?
Yeah yeah, absolutely.
When were you there?
What was the day?
Uh, June 29th I think?
You're joking, you're playing with me.
You're pulling my leg, right?
Why would you say that?
I was there the day before.
On the 28th I was there.
That's when I played.
That year?
Yeah, that year, if
I'm doing my math right.
You're right, definitely need
something stronger for this.
I should probably stop though
before I'm too drunk to drive.
(LAUGHING) I think
you're already past that.
I'm quite happy to say
that I'm very capable
of holding my liquor.
In my mouth.
So um, where are you staying these days?
You know where.
I can't stay.
Why not?
JACK: You know why not.
Give me one reason.
The night is young.
Oh my god.
You're very convincing.
Very, very good.
The night is young.
Oh god.
Bartender, more wine!
Nothing could beat this.
The quiet calmness of home.
Remember prom night?
Under the stars?
You were so nervous that night
you puked in the bushes
before you rang the doorbell.
You saw that?
Oh no.
So, wow.
Oh my God.
What an odd night.
Which part?
The DJ that kept playing EDM
or the stale salad and dry chicken
they served us for dinner?
I'd say the whole fiasco
if we were being completely honest.
Afterward wasn't so bad though.
All we needed was a blanket and the waves
to help us sleep.
Well, if we're being completely honest,
I think you should know,
I was never intending us sleeping.
That I knew. (LAUGHING)
You've always been very observant.
I tell everyone that.
Everyone on the street.
Is that another one of Paul's toys?
No, that one's mine.
It's kind of late in the season
but if you wanna go swimming,
we could borrow some of Paul's trunks.
What are you doing?
It's all good.
What are you doing?
It's not like you haven't
seen all this before.
I promise you, not much has changed.
Maybe for you.
Oh, come on.
Some things are just more
exciting in the nude.
Right, how about this.
How about we live tonight
like it's the only night left to live.
And what about tomorrow?
We can worry about that later.
But first, let's make it through tonight.
It'll be great, I promise.
The water's warm.
All right, there it is.
Give my eyes what they want
A smile across your face
Your eyes so big they shine so bright
The sun's in the darkest night
Holy crap.
You really went for it.
It's fine, it's fine,
it's fine, it's fine
Whatever you want to do
So many ways and open space
I'm here right now with you
Yeah I'm here right next to you
It's getting late.
It's been a long day.
So um, this is it.
It's not very elaborate, but.
It'll do, Bridge.
Um, well the bathroom's right next door.
If you wanna shower or anything,
the towels are in the closet.
Oh, and if you want
any pajamas or anything
there's some new ones
in the top drawer there.
They were Paul's but
he just never used them
so they're all yours.
Um, so,
I'm right down the hallway
if you need me for anything.
Good night.
Good night.
There you are.
Wow, you look good.
I like this, this whole ensemble.
Couldn't sleep?
Shouldn't I be asking you that?
Oh, it's a very hard adjustment
going from sleeping on the ground
to sleeping on the clouds.
I've slept in that bed,
it's definitely not that soft.
Oh, I beg to differ.
You want some coffee?
How about breakfast?
Well it is technically the morning.
What did you have in mind?
Do you trust me?
I think so.
It's your funeral.
Another moment gone by
And I just wanna know you
Just like the first time
In my home is a fleeting mo-oh mo-oh
An always golden ever fleeting
Oh my god.
How did we eat this all the time?
Always golden ever
fleeting moment gone
An always golden ever fleeting
Yeah that's the one.
That's the one.
How was that for you?
Delicious. (LAUGHING)
I knew you'd like it.
It's my specialty, I'm telling you.
That cheesy eggs, yeah.
You know, I used to go
camping all the time
when I was a kid with my cousins.
They're all like 10
years older than me, so
they took me under their wing
and showed me the ropes, so to speak.
I used to love those trips.
We'd make smores and
roast hotdogs on the fire.
And pick blueberries, blackberries
and whatever other color berry there is.
And we'd just live off
the land as best we could.
Ah, I loved it.
We'd stay out there for
a week, sometimes two.
We actually, we adopted this rule where
once we ran out of toilet paper
we'd head home.
We did that 'cause this one time
my one cousin, he got a...
I get the point. (LAUGHING)
Yeah, my parents always freaked out
when we're on the freaking trip.
They're the kind of people that
they always want everything
planned out, you know,
mapped to a T.
Not me though.
I loved every second of that.
JACK: You okay?
- Burned yourself?
- Yeah.
It's hot.
Try mine.
But be careful.
I told you.
I warned you.
I never thought
things would ever be better
than they were on those trips.
And were you right?
Answer's still pending.
I'll have to let you know.
So um,
how long have you been homeless?
JACK: I have a home.
Your car.
It's a roof over my head.
That's enough.
Is it?
So you still as limber
as you used to be?
Excuse me?
You know what I'm talking about.
Listen, I know I look great for my age
but trust me, mostly smoke and mirrors.
I can't do any of the stuff we used to do.
Well, most of it.
There's some things.
Hmm, let's find out.
I like it, you have the spirit.
(MUMBLING) By all means,
please. Oh I'm gonna love this.
Are you ready?
Go Big Blue!
Go Big Blue!
Go Big Blue!
Go Big Blue!
Whoah, fire, fire.
- Woo!
- Oh my god.
That was frightening.
Girl, you are ready for ESPN prime time.
BRIDGET: Easy there, Tiger.
I need a break.
Low stamina. (LAUGHING)
I have never had that problem.
I always wondered how you did that.
BRIDGET: Your fingers.
Oh, uh.
I just kind of do it.
Could you teach me?
JACK: How to tap your fingers?
(LAUGHING) Really?
Ooh, yes.
Teach me.
JACK: Ah wow.
BRIDGET: Come on.
Ah, all right.
Two minutes.
BRIDGET: Two minutes?
JACK: Two minutes.
Where are you going?
JACK: Don't burn yourself.
Nice bongo.
Actually, it's called a Djembe.
Bless you.
No, no, that's,
you're hilarious.
You're so funny, so cute.
Oh teach me your ways, wise master.
The Djembe, what you're gonna do is
take the meaty part of your hand,
hit it there, right.
The meaty part, you know, like palm.
Just give it a smack there like that.
So you get that sound.
Take your fingertips.
Hit this part.
BRIDGET: Completely different sound.
Completely different sound, yeah.
And you just kind of put it together.
Those, those are the basics.
Yeah, I think you figured it out.
I mean, so what you're doing wrong is,
so the power doesn't come from the hit.
It comes from your wrist
and your fingertips.
So you wanna use your
wrist and your fingers
and just, so when you
bring your hand down,
use your wrist.
Like that.
But let the drum like,
let the drum work.
See what I mean?
Bring it back up.
It rings out.
You get it.
We'll get there.
Work in progress.
That's it, just use your hands like that.
What about this?
What about that?
You're doing better already.
See, I couldn't do the cheering thing.
I could teach you.
But we'll save that for another time.
We could do some handstands.
It will be educational.
What about this?
No, that's just nails on
ooh chalkboard, it's uh.
Please don't.
(LAUGHING) Am I torturing you?
No, not at all.
It's good.
BRIDGET: I miss it.
Me too.
Just give me a minute.
BRIDGET: Where did you go?
Philadelphia, Boston, L.A.
A short stint in New Orleans.
That's not what I meant.
Why didn't you come back?
What was I supposed to come back to?
You could have came back to me.
You didn't want me to come back.
You're right.
I wanted you to stay.
Come with me.
I wanna show you something.
It's roomier than it looks.
Come on.
This is it.
This is my life.
My home.
This is where my path has led me.
If I could do it again
I would have stayed.
Yeah but, this led you back here to me.
So what are we supposed to do now?
I don't know.
You know, for a housewife,
you sure can party like it's 1999.
First of all, I'm not a housewife.
I'm in marketing.
And secondly, we were kids in 1999.
Our kinds of parties were
pin the tail on the donkey
and a pinata.
Well, I still party like that.
I never thought that going
after something I love,
something everyone says impossible,
that that would backfire
me so spectacularly.
I gave everything I had to music. My life.
That's why there was never a plan B.
I had nothing left to give to it.
Why didn't you just come home?
My parents.
They said that if you go,
if you do this, you don't get to go home.
They couldn't have meant that.
If I ever find them, I'll
be sure to let you know.
Yeah, through the good and bad,
it was always okay though.
And one thing always held true.
What's that?
I'm a nomad.
I have no home, no place where I belong.
Part of me feels like
it's always been that way.
Except for the moments I had with you.
Shall we play a game?
(LAUGHING) You just war games'd me.
Okay, let's play a game.
Where did you get this shit?
It taste like high school gym class.
Are you sure about this?
I'll get the beer.
Do you remember that
guy that used to throw
all the parties when we were kids?
Danny, yes, oh my god
that kid was crazy.
I remember like getting blackout drunk
was just a physical challenge
for him and he always won.
Whatever happened to him?
I actually saw him a year or two ago.
He lives in Vegas now.
And he manages people's finances.
People actually trust
him with their money?
Yes they do.
Well, I remember his
parties being insane.
Never a dull moment.
So, when's the last
time you played this?
Honestly, probably not
since sometime in college.
Oh, so what you're saying
is you're out of practice.
If my memory serves me correctly
I used to kick your ass
without even aiming.
Oh okay.
I can see that you
certainly have the cups,
that's nice, those are nice, oh good.
But more importantly.
Do you have the balls to back that up?
I do.
And my balls are nicer than yours.
Thanks for throwing your balls in my eye.
I appreciate that.
I'm high as a motherfucker.
We should play.
BRIDGET: And you still suck.
You're like the rainman of Beer Pong.
You know, there's
something very wrong about us
playing this in this room.
It is far too fancy for
the little red cups,
and whatever cheap light beer this is.
Jack, it's a dining room.
Who the hell needs a dining room?
Does Paul feel this strongly against
the use of dining rooms
No, he loves this stupid room.
Perfect for big family gatherings.
Oh, he has a big family?
No, he's an only child.
And his parents live in Arizona.
He sees this vision of our life
and I just don't know
if I feel the same way.
I don't see it the way
he does, I don't think.
How do you see it?
I don't know.
How does he see it?
Oh you know, the whole
leave it to beaver thing.
You know, housewife, rugrats.
The home cooked meal when
he gets home from work.
You forgot the glass
of scotch waiting for him
when he came through the front door.
Yeah well, I don't really think
housewife is my style.
No it's not.
Well, we have a more
pressing matter at hand.
I'm not gonna drink this shit anymore.
Because it's gonna make me puke.
Okay, sorry.
Simple solution.
How about we switch back to vodka?
Okay, that sounds good, right?
And that rug over there is calling to me
to go and pass out and just relax.
I've had enough of the games.
All right, sounds good.
I can't wait for you to join me.
So you went into marketing.
Just like you always wanted.
Sort of.
Sort of, what do you mean sort of?
Just, I wish I was a
little further along by now.
I did work on one ad campaign though.
Yeah, what was it for?
I don't think you'd know.
Why not?
I got television in my car.
I'm just kidding.
I barely have working FM radio.
No really, what was it?
It's called Volcano Chips.
Hey is that the one with the guy
who's drinking water on
the floor next to the dog?
That is the one.
I loved that song.
That jingle is fantastic, it's so 80s.
Wait, wait, what's the way they sing?
A flavor eruption right in your mouth
A spicy treat that's hot as hell
Volcano Chips, they're
a scorching treat
So get some today, and feel the heat
Volcano Chips, get some today
before time and supplies run out!
They're going fast.
So fast.
Oh my god, that was a really
popular commercial, wasn't it?
Yeah, it was.
Wait, if it was so successful,
why didn't you get another one?
Career politics.
Oh, fuck that.
No, I'm writing them a letter.
Several letters and I'm demanding more.
I might even sing for them.
Please, don't do that.
You'll get me fired.
I'm a drummer and
singing is not my forte.
Yeah, but,
it's still cute when you do.
You know, I still have the tape.
No you don't, no.
I do.
Nah, mmm-mmm, impossible.
No way, I burned them all.
I'm out of my mind you can see
I need a padded white
cell for my lunacy
'cause I'm crazy about you babe
A nice straight jacket
keeps me restrained
The thought of you
is driving me insane
You know one thing that I need
Now that's not so bad, is it?
It's excruciating.
It's still the sweetest thing
anyone's ever done for me.
Well, no one ever said I was bright.
Pull me Together. Straigten
me up make me all better.
Give me a chance, give me a sign
Give me your love, I'll be all right
I'm out of my head
You are the answer
The remedy to make me feel better
The one thing that I had
For my sanity
You know, you really
have a great life here.
Do I?
You know you do.
Paul is one lucky guy.
You know we really don't
have to talk about him.
He's part of your life.
I mean,
look at all this.
He built something I've only dreamt about
and here it is, he has it.
He has you, so
yeah he's pretty lucky.
Well um,
sometimes there's more to life than luck.
I wouldn't know about that.
I haven't been doing too
great in that department
as of late.
Well we found each other.
That's pretty lucky, right?
A little too lucky.
Have you been following me?
Yep, and I have a white
van right outside too
filled with candy.
My own personal stalker.
Oh, I have an idea.
Come with me.
You're not gonna show me
that white van, are you?
Most of this stuff hasn't
been touched in years.
Paul went through a
little phase in college.
Guess he never really
completely got over it.
I am so sorry.
BRIDGET: Jackie!
Wanna play me?
That's kind of an odd request.
I meant pool.
Not too shabby.
Well, I haven't played since college.
Oh wait, I didn't go.
I learned in bars, like real men do.
All right, we'll get this right here.
Excuse me.
Oh shit.
All right, so pitch me.
Tell me some commercials, I wanna hear it.
All right.
So there's this guy, right?
And he's having a nightmare.
And all of his soda cans are empty.
And he's searching and searching
and the footage is getting
crazier and crazier
and then bam!
He wakes up, all is good,
he's in his bed, when
his girlfriend walks in.
She says, "All our soda's missing".
Okay, all right.
He's like.
That's really good.
I don't even like soda that much
and now I really want one.
Well I guess that means
I'm doing my job then.
You know, if they decide to pick it up.
If not, maybe you should just go around
to everyone, one by one,
tell them the pitch.
And then, once they see
the increase in sales,
the big wigs that run your firm
will finally cash in.
Wouldn't that be a nice change of pace?
Hear me now
If you want the truth of it
My tongue has been tide in regret
Hear and now I gotta make this right
Why don't you do some spec work?
Reach out to companies independently?
It's not that easy.
Why not?
I have a contract.
Break it.
And why would I do that?
Well to be fair,
sounds like a pretty shitty contract
if they're not developing
any of your ideas.
That's a good point.
Maybe we can write something together.
You know, change their minds.
Like what?
A drummer powered by soup?
I mean, why not?
I'm sure you can write something better
than Volcano Chips.
Now that's a challenge.
Here and now
We've gotta make this right
Hold on, my phone's ringing.
It's Paul.
Just give me a second, okay?
Just say it to me
Hey hon.
PAUL: Hey yeah, thanks for answering.
How was your flight?
PAUL: It was good.
Is the weather nice?
PAUL: It's Seattle.
It was mediocre.
But hey, is he still there?
I get like this weird
feeling from you that
you have still some sort
of connection with him
that you're,
what's that noise?
Is he playing my drums?
You don't, and you don't
even have an answer,
that's like the best part, I get it, like.
I gotta go.
And make sure he's gone.
Seriously, make...
Still got that magic touch.
How's Paul?
He's uh,
god, I just remember sitting
there in that auditorium
just watching you.
What are you talking about?
Oh you know, that
battle of the bands thing
you guys did.
Yeah, yeah.
Everyone else just
drowned out, you know.
I could just see how much you loved it.
Right, we were kids.
It was a battle.
It was fun.
Yeah, but, those other guys
were never gonna last.
I know, I knew it.
You play when you can play.
Yeah, I guess.
When I didn't hear from you at school,
I always kind of wished you'd given it up.
'Cause then maybe I
would have still had you.
Why are you doing this?
Why am I here?
I saw you at that park.
For so many years I wondered,
what would I say?
What would I do if I saw you?
You deserve a second chance.
A second chance at what?
You live in a car.
So what?
What, a second chance at what?
Plan B.
You know, to get your life right again.
I got my life right.
You know I might not have this life
or my own bedroom,
but at least I went after what I wanted.
How does it feel to
slowly lose who you are?
I know who I am.
Oh yeah?
What did Paul want?
He was just calling checking,
see if you're being a good little wife?
Yeah you must be really unhappy
with this perfect real life you have.
I wanted this.
I wanted all of this, I
wanted a house, the pool,
all the fancy toys.
Is that all you care about,
this superficial bullshit?
No, I care about you.
I should have had you.
We should have been together.
But I made a choice, a decision.
I thought it'd bring me
back here, back to you
but it didn't.
'Cause I failed.
My parents knew, they always knew.
That's why they threw me to the wolves.
You knew.
That's how you got here with Paul
and all this.
What's so great about this?
You know at work, I'm fighting and clawing
just to be heard.
I even spent years trying to mold myself
into this person and they
don't even listen to me.
And Paul, half the time
he's not even here!
And when he is,
he doesn't see the real me.
All this time, I've been
looking for something
and I thought I found it in him.
But I didn't.
I'm not the same guy anymore.
Not completely.
This morning, I bathed in a lake.
I stole food out of the dumpster.
I can't even afford my own toothpaste.
My drum and my car,
they're my whole world.
I lost everything else
'cause I had to be me.
You don't have to do it alone.
I am alone.
Not anymore, you don't have to be.
We can't be together.
How can we be together
knowing what you had to do,
what you had to go through?
It's been 10 years.
I can't lose you again.
I want to be with you.
Fuck it.
Now what?
I don't know.
Didn't even see the
streetlight coming on
Selling Thomas Dalley boulevard
This is all very complicated.
It's easy.
Maybe that's why
everything else is so hard.
Loving you has always been easy.
I do love you.
And I am not the first one
Sure as hell won't be the last
I was a different person
When I cursed the glass
And you'll take notice
When I open up
And pour myself in with you
JACK: Good morning.
Good morning.
Oh, yes.
- Which one?
- I don't care.
- Okay.
- The fuller one.
Take the blue pill.
You know, you should be a housewife.
You're good at it.
I could actually get used
to doing this every morning.
Coffee delivered every morning?
I'll take it.
I'll keep that in mind.
Paul never delivered coffee in bed?
Are you really gonna talk about him?
Sorry, sorry.
I didn't mean to crush the mood.
Where are we gonna go from here, though?
It looks nice out.
We can go for a morning swim.
Excuse me?
It's one of my favorite
ways to start the day.
Just like last night was
one of my favorite ways
- to end the day.
- You wanna go swimming now.
Well, that wasn't too bad, yeah.
But shouldn't we, I mean, we should.
We'll worry about it later.
So yes, swimming?
After this cup of coffee though?
Well, after last night, I
think coffee's a good idea.
Actually, you got any crack lying around?
Come on, come in!
The water's nice.
JACK: All right, here I come!
I was thinking a lot about you
Thinking a lot about everybody too
All my mothers, all my fathers
And all my friends
I know we'll be together again
All the moments I hold so close to me
Only exist in my memory
Ain't that the way you go
How do we get this time
BRIDGET: Where are you going?
JACK: What do you want me to say?
I want you to say that you're staying.
And that we're gonna find
a way to make this work.
How can I?
The entire time I was out there
all I'm thinking is
I'm invading someone else's world.
Their life.
You have a life here.
And my fate was decided a long time ago.
It's hard, and it's definitely not pretty
but it's mine.
And I can't forget that.
I'd still have a life.
But you'd be in it, it'd be better.
I can't.
This isn't our happy ending.
I want it to be, but, it's just not.
I don't belong here.
If we're together, I'm just
gonna tear you down with me.
We'll end up in that car together.
But at least we'd be together.
Call Paul.
Just tell him, tell him the truth.
Don't lie.
Tell him what happened.
He can give you something I never could.
I should have never let you go.
BRIDGET: Get out of the car.
Get out of the car.
You at least owe me that.
You were right about me.
What do you mean?
I found you.
I knew you'd be in that park
and I found you and I followed you there.
I guess I really was your
own personal stalker.
I needed to know that you were okay.
I need to know what happened to you.
But what I didn't realize is that
I'm not okay.
And for so long now
everything's felt wrong.
And I didn't know what it was.
Until last night.
Til I found you again.
I made a mistake.
What are you talking about?
Just know that I was wrong.
It's the same old place again
I know it all too well
The avenue shutdown when
the telephone pole fell
So I ducked back down the alley
And you're lying with
the man in the road
I'm sitting here so patiently
Waiting on my chance to go
Pages flying open nearly
pierce right through my eyes
You were like a different person
Living secret kind of lives
In a world that's so
fast I never thought
The time would move so slow
I'm sitting here so patiently
Waiting on my chance to go
And the boys in the lineup
don't play by the rules
They don't talk about the tools
That they forgot in bookshop blues
And some say the dye will
wash away in the rain
But I think it's just me
And I've gotta change
Separate the city I
can think about it all
No need to get up
I will increase my chance to fall
All my sisters are the flowers
And the grass and I can hear them grow
I'm sitting here so patiently
Waiting on my chance to go
