Make Up Your Mind/Catch Me I'm Falling

This song is by Louis Hobson, Alice Ripley, J. Robert Spencer, Aaron Tveit and Jennifer Damiano and appears on the musical soundtrack Next to Normal (2009).

Dr. Madden:
Walk with me, Walk with me
Diana:
Ok, walking...
Dr. Madden:
Go all the way the down
Down a long flight of stairs
Diana:
Stairs?
Dr. Madden:
Go step by step into the darkness down there
Diana:
Should we turn on a light? You know, with the stairs.

Dr. Madden:
Walk with me, down a hall
A hall that you know
At the end there's a door
It's a door that you've never laid eyes on before
Open the door, open the door

Can you hear me Diana?
Diana:
Yes.
Dr. Madden:
Are you nervous?
Diana:
No.

Dr. Madden:
Good. Now...
Make up your mind to explore yourself
Make up your mind, you have stories to tell
We'll search in your past
For what sorrows may last
Then make up your mind to be well

Dan:
Di, you come home from these sessions in tears. Is this helping or...? Di? Di?
Diana:
We were both undergrads, architecture. The baby wasn't planned, neither was the marriage. I had always expected to be too busy, but when the baby came it all seemed to make sense until, until...
Dr. Madden:
Until?

Dan:
He's not here, he's not here
Love, I know, you know

Dr. Madden:
Make up your mind that you're strong enough
Make up your mind, let the truth be revealed
Admit what you've lost and live with the cost
At times, it does hurt to be healed

Gabe:
Catch me I'm falling
Dr. Madden:
In our first session you told me...
Gabe:
Catch me I'm falling
Dr. Madden:
Talking through your history...
Gabe:
Faster than anyone should

Gabe & Diana:
Catch me I'm falling
Dr. Madden:
It feels like it's about someone else...
Gabe & Diana:
Please hear me calling
Dr. Madden:
Make it about you.
Gabe & Diana:
Catch me I'm falling for good

Diana:
We had Natalie to...and I know she knows. I couldn't hold her in the hospital. I couldn't let myself hold her.
Dr. Madden:
That's the first time you've mentioned Natalie in weeks of therapy.

Natalie:
She's not there
Natalie & Gabe:
She's not there
All:
She's not there...

Dr. Madden:
Make up your mind you want clarity
Take what you know and then make it make sense
Just face what you fear
And soon it comes clear
The visions are just your defense

Make up your mind, you can live at last
Make up your mind to be fully alive
Embrace what's inside, the place that has died
Then make up your mind, you'll survive
Gabe: I'm alive, I'm alive, alive, alive...
Natalie: Take a look, take a look, the Invisible Girl, falling...
Diana: Catch me I'm falling, falling, falling...
Dan: He's not there, love, it's time to go, oh...

All:
Catch me I'm falling
Catch me I'm falling
Flying head first into fate
Catch me I'm falling
Please hear me calling
Catch me before it's too late
Catch me before it's too late
Catch me before it's too late
Catch me I'm falling
Catch me I'm falling
Catch me I'm falling
