# When everybody leaves you lonely

# And times are worse than sad

# And the world is falling

on your head

# Just remember, for all you know

# Good or bad, come what may

# You're gonna live tomorrow

# If you don't die today

# It takes a muscle to fall in love

# It takes a muscle

to fall in love

# It takes a muscle to fall in love

# Now the fear got in me...?

Your mother

said you were having a hard time.

Yeah, I... er,

I just broke up with my girlfriend.

We went out from the end

of high school till... well, through college.

What did she do?

She studied Marketing at school.

She's got a job at an ad agency now.

And you?

Me? I, erm...

I studied Neuroscience...

with a primary focus on the relationship

between the eye and the brain.

My thesis project was about

peripheral vision.

It dealt with something called 'crowding'

and 'size pooling'.

How the width of one object

is given a weighted average

of the objects around it.

The effect is called 'size pooling'.

- It was published, actually.

- Hm. That's great.

I'm not sure I understand,

but it's great you were published.

Yeah, that's OK, nobody does.

How long were you together?

For almost 5 years.

I moved in with her right after graduation.

Things were...

Well, they were nice for a while,

but then she wasn't happy anymore...

or I wasn't making her happy.

She didn't like what she was doing.

I tried to be supportive,

encourage her not to settle. But then...

I'm living at home now.

Excuse me. I'm not feeling so well.

I'm still feeling jetlagged.

Do you understand "jetlagged?"

Yeah. Don't worry.

Do you still speak to each other?

No. Not really.

The way that it ended...

She started coming home

late from work...

and one night

she got into bed with me

and I moved to hold her,

and I just...

smelled this smell on her.

What do you mean?

I'm sorry.

Maybe it's a little inappropriate.

No. Go ahead.

I, er...

I just smelled this guy on her.

She smelled like sex.

Like sweat and latex.

And this guy, whoever he was,

was all over her.

I mean, she denied it, of course,

but it was clear.

I don't know, maybe I overreacted.

Well, whatever. She's a whore.

I'd like to meet somebody new.


OK, thanks, I'll be right down.

My cab is downstairs.

- Can I help you with your bags?

- No. Thank you.

So, you know where everything is.

Just change the sheets at the end...

make sure the heater is off

and the kitchen is clean.

Yeah... yeah.

And how long will you be away?

Um... I'm going to the south.

So maybe a week, maybe a month.

I don't know, it depends.

But you'll be here for a week?

Or much longer?

No. Just a week. I have to figure out

where I'm going to next.

Oh, right.

Leave the key under the mat outside.

I'm sorry I have to leave

just when you arrive.

That's OK. Don't worry.

- Have a safe trip.

- Thank you.

- Give my love to your mom.

- I will... I will.

- Goodbye.

- Ciao.

# If the walls were too thin,

you would...?

'Hey, Chelle belle...

"Dear Michelle..."

'Hey, Michelle... How are you?

'How's everything?

'I know you said not to contact you.

'I know, the last time we spoke,

we agreed not to contact each other.

'But I'm in Paris now, about to start

traveling around for a few months.

'And since we always spoke about

coming here together,

'I just thought I'd let you know.

Things are great.

'So far, things are great.

'I'm spending time with

our cousin Carlo and his friends.

'I... I met someone, actually.

'I wanted to tell you I'd met someone.

'I'm meeting some interesting people here

and practicing my French.
