ALL SALE PROCEEDS GO DIRECT TO THE MENTAL HEALTH CHARITY "SANE"

Songwriters: Melissa James, Ross Lorraine
Producer: Andrew Hunt
Recorded at: RAK Studios, London
Filmed by: Alfred George Bailey

THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG
"Live Again" was inspired by the stories of those close to Melissa during mentally challenging periods of their lives. People whom she knew well and whom she witnessed struggling to get to grip with things day-by-day; people who had trouble asking for - and even accepting that they needed - help yet she could see that, through their behaviour, help was precisely what they wanted. It is also Melissa's story. Herself a communicator yet sometimes finding it difficult to speak openly about what she feels. Unable to express this directly to anyone, Melissa put her feelings into this song.

"Live Again" is Melissa's reminder to herself and to others that we can all be sufferers of our minds on some level. It is also her way of trying to encourage greater awareness of matters related to the mind and compassion for mental health issues generally.

LYRICS
Live Again
© Melissa James

Can anybody hear me calling?
Will anybody see that I’m falling?
Is there somebody who cares to listen?
To anything I dare to mention?

Could it be that there’s another like me?
Someone who understands what I feel?
Will they see that I am lost and lonely?
Just trying to figure out my story?

Oh, but I know
It isn't all about me
(Help me now to live again, help me now to live again)

Can someone hear the screams inside me?
I’m crying though my face looks smiley
Might say I understand love’s meaning
But I’ve never really known its feeling

Will you forgive me of my words that hurt you?
Believe me how I never meant to
I speak yet it’s not me that’s talking
It’s just a fragment of my mind unloading

And how I know, I know, I know
It isn't all about me
(Help me now to live again, help me now to live again)

Cause all I want is to be free
From the chains that bind my mind
They keep anxieties inside
I want to start to live again

And I want to turn my world around
But I need my feet firm on the ground
Cause I think I am ready to start to change, yes I am
But first I need some help to find my way

All I want is to be free
From the battles of my mind
They keep my thoughts locked-up inside
But I don’t know how to be, yeah
Anyone but who I’ve been
I want to start to live again

Can anybody hear me calling?
I want someone to help me now I’m falling
I'm laughing but inside I'm dying
I think I'm ready now to live again

Won’t you please come and help me now to live again?
Come on and hold my hand and tell me how to live again
Won’t you show me how, I’m ready now to live again
I wanna start to live again


THE SING4SANE STORY
The SING4SANE initiative began as a live and public performance at Heathrow's Caffe Nero store in February 2016. A crowd of 30 participants turned-up at the coffee store to sing Live Again alongside Melissa, adding their vocals in a bid to join her in raising awareness of mental health matters.

On Sunday 21 August 2016, Melissa decided to build on this idea by inviting another small and public crowd of willing participants to sing with her at RAK Studios. Again with the focus being on creating togetherness and trying to breakdown the stigmas associated with mental health illnesses, Melissa and her group of participants sang and recorded Live Again, using their voices to send out a positive message about mind ill health.

This SING4SANE recording of Live Again released on 28th October 2016.
