The third chapter, LOVE, explores the possibility of finding fulfillment through relationships with others. Hero and Leander evokes the sounds of the roiling waves that stand in the way of the lovers’ union, and ultimately prove their ruin. Come to Jesus intertwines the story of a young couple’s dissolution because of an unwanted pregnancy with the haunting hymn text of the title, and the chapter ends with the wistfully humorous and self-involved How Can I Lose You?
