TRINA:
I never wanted to love you.
I only wanted to love and not be blamed.
Let me go, you should know
I'm not ashamed
To have loved you.

MENDEL:
I loved you more than I meant to.
In my profession, one's love stays unexpressed.
Here we stand, take my hand.
God, I'm distressed.
How I love you.

JASON: I hate the world!

TRINA: He hates everything!

JASON: I love my dad!

MENDEL: He loves his father.

JASON: I love the things I've never had.

TRINA & MENDEL: Love our family.

JASON: Lord, hear our call!

MENDEL: (overlapping) Help us all.

TRINA: Help us all.

JASON: Helps us all.

MENDEL: Help us all.

TRINA, MENDEL, & JASON: Help us all!

WHIZZER:
I never wanted to love you.
I never wanted, 'till death do we two part.'
Condescend, stay my friend.
How do I start,
Not to love you'

TRINA:
I'm everything he wanted.
It's time I put it all together.
My hands were tied.
My father cried,
'You'll marry!'
I married!

TRINA & JASON: (overlapping) He's mine! He's mine!

MARVIN:
I never wanted to love you.
I only wanted to see my face in yours.
Jason smiled, save this child.
How he adores, and hates me-

It really killed me when you took those vows.
Don't misunderstand, I'm in command!
Anyhow, we're through!
I never wanted,
I wanted-
I never, never, never, never,
Never, never wanted to love you!
I never wanted to love you!
I never wanted to love you!
I never wanted to love you!

ALL: (overlapping) Love you!
