The Beginning. “Crawley”. I am very ill. A dark start not without the odd flash of humour.
“Scrabble For Beginners”. The second song in the show. A spoken word song about struggling to play a game of Scrabble with my Mum. Ends with a brief moment of hilarity and release.
“Killing Spree”. A silly, funny song about homicidal leanings.
“Tonight The Stars”. The end of the first half. The turning point in the show. I look at the stars and realise I don’t want to die.
“Depression For Dummies” A chatty, standup section of the show. A funny look at the basic do’s and don’ts of depression.
“Sweet Heart”. I begin to pull my head out of my arse and realise other people exist. A love song.
“Up” Recovery. I go on holiday and reflect. Thailand, coconuts, beach dogs and hope.
