Is New York such a labyrinth? I thought it was all straight up and down like Fifth Avenue. All the cross streets numbered and big honest labels on everything.
Everything is labeled, but everybody is not.
Then I must count on you for warnings too.
Newland. You couldn't be happy if it meant being cruel. If we act any other way I'll be making you act against what I love in you most. And I can't go back to that way of thinking. Don't you see? I can't love you unless I give you up.

I just want us to be together!

I want... Somehow, I want to get away with you... and... and find a world where words like that don't exist!
