Jack: You’re going to live in the old days.


 

Jack: Could I ask you a personal question?
Ally: Okay?
Jack: Do you write songs or anything?
Ally: I don’t sing my own songs.
Jack: Why?
Ally: I just don’t feel comfortable.
Jack: Why wouldn’t you feel comfortable?
Ally: Because like almost every single person that I’ve come in contact with in the music industry has told me that my nose is too big and that I won’t make it.
Jack: Your nose is beautiful. Are you showing me your nose right now?
Ally: Yeah.
Jack: You don’t have to show it to me. I’ve been looking at it all night.
Ally: Oh, come on. No, you’re not.
Jack: Oh, I’m going to be thinking about your nose for a very long time.
Ally: You’re full of shit.
Jack: I’m not full of shit.
Ally: Yeah, you are.
Jack: I’m telling you the truth.
Ally: Yeah, you’re full of shit.


 

Jack: Can I touch your nose?
Ally: Oh, my gosh.
Jack: Let me just touch it for a second.
[he slides his finger down her nose]
Jack: You’re very lucky.
Ally: Oh, really?
Jack: Mm-hmm.
Ally: Yeah, not really, that my nose has not made me lucky.


 

Jack: Look, talent comes everywhere, but having something to say and a way to say it so that people listen to it, that’s a whole other bag. And unless you get out and you try to do it, you’ll never know. That’s just the truth. And there’s one reason we’re supposed to be here is to say something so people want to hear. So you got to grab it, and you don’t apologize, and you don’t worry about why they’re listening, or how long they’re going to be listening for, you just tell them what you want to say. Don’t you understand what I’m trying to tell you?
Ally: Yeah, I do. I don’t like it, but I understand it.
Jack: Oh, I think you like it a little bit.


 

Ally: [singing] Tell me something, boy. Aren’t you tired of trying to fill that void? Or do you need more? Ain’t it hard keeping it so hardcore?
Jack: Is that me?
Ally: That’s you.
Jack: Did you just write that now?
Ally: Yeah.
Jack: Pretty good.


 

Ally: I started writing this song the other day. Maybe that could work, like as a chorus or something.
[she gets up in front of Jack and starts singing]
Ally: I’m off the deep end. Watch as I dive in. I never the meet the ground. Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us. We’re far from the shallow now.


 

Jack: Can I tell you a secret?
[Ally looks over to him]
Jack: I think you might be a songwriter. And don’t worry, I won’t tell anybody. But I’m not very good at keeping secrets.


 

Jack: Hey?
Ally: What?
Jack: I just wanted to take another look at you.


 

Jack: Here’s what you’re going to do. You’re going to sing that song that I love.
Ally: No, I can’t do that. I’m sorry.
Jack: Here we go. Here we go.
[he tries to drag her onto the stage]
Ally: No. Stop this, it’s not funny Jack.
Jack: Look at me. All you got to do is trust me. That’s all you got to do.


 

Bobby: Music is essentially any note between twelve octaves. Twelve notes and the octave repeats. It’s the same story told over and over. All that the artist can offer the world is how they see those twelve notes. That’s it. He loved how you see them.


 

[Jack has passed out on the side of the road in some bushes]
George ‘Noodles’ Stone: Jack, I feel like we’ve done this before. I didn’t think we’d do it so soon, man. Come on, bro. get up.
[he helps Jack stand]
George ‘Noodles’ Stone: Alright. There we go.


 


George ‘Noodles’ Stone: [to Jack] You know, there’s something about when we started playing, I always knew like you were going to do something, that you’d be alright. This is the first time I worry about you. Maybe she’s aware. You know, it’s like, I don’t know, you float out, float out at sea, and then one day you find a port, say, “I’m going to stay here a few days.” A few days becomes a few years. And then you forgot where you were going in the first place. And then you realize you don’t really give a shit about where you was going because you like where you’re at.


 

Jack: What are you writing down in here?
Ally: That’s my song book. I had this idea and I didn’t want to forget it.
[she starts writing in her notebook]
Jack: How do you hear
[she begins to hum the tune and then start singing the words]
Ally: I’m alone in my house.


 

[singing the song Look What I Found]
Ally: [singing] I’m alone in my house. I’m out on the town. I’m at the bottom of the bottle, I’ve been knocking them down. I can’t get back up on my feet to see the lights on the street like stars. But look what I found. Look what I found. Another piece of my heart just laying on the ground. Under the foggy day, I’m looking for a light. And my only friend is working tonight. I can’t get myself out of bed, hear these voices in my head like a song. But look what I found. Somebody who loves me. Look what I found. Somebody who’ll carry around a piece of my heart just laying on the ground. When I met you I was blown to pieces. Heart all over the floor. Ever since you put me back together. I can’t believe it, won’t believe it. Look what you found. Yeah, baby. Look what I found. Someone who’ll carry around a piece of my heart. Look what I found. Wooh! Come on! Look what I found. Somebody who loves me. Look what we found. Somebody who’ll carry around a piece of my heart. Heart just laying on the ground.
Jack: Yeah, I think we got something there.
Ally: Oh, that’s so cool.


 

George ‘Noodles’ Stone: Maybe she’s a way out.


 

[taking a picture of Jack with her phone]
Cashier: I’m sorry. Had to.
Jack: It’s alright.
Ally: It’s not really alright, but…
Jack: Have a good one.


 

[singing the song Shallow]
Jack: [singing] Tell me something, girl, are you happy in this modern world? Or do you need more? Is there something else you’re searching for? I’m falling. In all the good times I find myself longing for change.
And in the bad times I fear myself.
Ally: [singing] Tell me something boy. Aren’t you tired trying to fill that void? Or do you need more? Ain’t it hard keeping it so hardcore? I’m falling. In all the good times I find myself longing for change. And in the bad times I fear myself. I’m off the deep end. Watch as I dive in. I’ll never meet the ground. Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us. We’re far from the shallow now.
Jack/Ally: [singing] In the shallow, shallow. In the shallow, shallow. In the shallow, shallow. We’re far from the shallow now.
Ally: [singing] Oh, oh, oh, oh. Whoa! I’m off the deep end. Watch as I dive in. I’ll never meet the ground. Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us. We’re far from the shallow now.
Jack/Ally: [singing] In the shallow, shallow. In the shallow, shallow. In the shallow, shallow. We’re far from the shallow now.


 

[to the audience at the concert]
Jack: Good evening.
[starts playing his guitar and singing the song Maybe It’s Time]
Jack: [singing] Maybe it’s time to let the old ways die. Maybe it’s time to let the old ways die. It takes a lot to change a man. Hell, it takes a lot to try. Maybe it’s time to let the old ways die. Nobody knows what waits for the dead. Nobody knows what waits for the dead. Some folks just believe in the things they’ve heard and the things they read. Nobody knows what awaits for the dead. I’m glad I can’t go back to where I came from. I’m glad those days are gone, gone for good. But if I could take spirits from my past and bring them here. You know I would. Know I would. Nobody speaks to God these days. Nobody speaks to God these days. I’d like to think he’s looking down and laughing at our ways. Nobody speaks to God these days. When I was a child, they tried to fool me. Said the worldly man was lost and that a Hell was real. Well I’ve seen Hell in Reno. And this world’s one big old Catherine wheel. Spinning steel. Maybe it’s time to let the old ways die. Maybe it’s time to let the old ways die. It takes a lot to change your plans. And a train to change your mind. Maybe it’s time to let the old ways die. Oh, maybe it’s time to let the old ways die.
