Passionate Hearts from Simon Bird 2020

The talk of love is getting pretty serious around here (though we’re keeping it G-rated), with four new talking hearts from Simon Bird. Thanks to Solomon Ratt for supplying audio.

These are correct as-is for y-dialect; 
For th-dialect, change all of the ê sounds to î.
