LEIGH: I walked away from you. I wanted more than you could give me. And the world didn't feel so lonely anymore. It felt like something new. I never wanted anything. I never believed anything. Stumbling over the pieces. We all break. There is no time to make mistakes. Our lives revolve around the clock. Each second winds tighter than the first. Memories of freedom begin to fade through these meadows of guilt. I swallow hard but still can't breathe. My mind is filled with what must be. Where have we brought ourselves. Sitting on these hills of endless paper where our lives have been written for us. We sink to the bottom of the heap. I stretch my legs out and feel my weak knees that have crumbled from the weight of endless dreams. A wise woman once told me that I was a dreamer. It is true? These ideas in my head, will they fade with each passing day as my life continues to revolve around the endless clock. Not wanting to die trying, just wanting to try. And I will not just try. "What if today was your last day? What if these words were your last words? What if this breath was your last breath? Would you change anything? What if this dream was your last dream? What if these tears were your last tears? What if this pain was your last pain? Would you change anything?"

ROSS: Let's be sure to make each and every breath count. Let's be sure to live each day as if it were our last. This is what I want. I will strive to be happy.

TOM: Thank you for showing me what my life would be if I had control and if I had everything I needed to be happy. To live and die and understand that what you did meant something is beauty.
