Doctor Madden:
Walk with me...
Walk with me.

Diana: [Spoken]
Okay, walking.

Doctor Madden:
Go all the way down—
Down a long flight of stairs...

Diana: [Spoken]
Stairs...

Doctor Madden:
Go step by step into
The darkness down there.

Diana: [Spoken]
Should we turn on a light? You know, with the stairs?

Doctor 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.
[Spoken]
Can you hear me, Diana?

Diana: [Spoken]
Yes.

Doctor Madden: [Spoken]
Are you nervous?

Diana: [Spoken]
No.

Doctor Madden: [Spoken]
Good. Now.
[Sung]
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: [Spoken]
Di, you come home from these sessions in tears. Is this
Helping, or... ? Di? Di?

Diana: [Spoken]
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...

Doctor Madden: [Spoken]
Until?

Dan:
He's not here...
He's not here...
Love, I know

Dan & Voices:
You know.

Doctor 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...

Doctor Madden: [Spoken]
In our first session you told me...

Gabe:
Catch me I'm falling...

Doctor Madden: [Spoken]
... That talking through your history...

Gabe:
Faster than anyone should.

Gabe & Diana:
Catch me I'm falling...

Doctor Madden: [Spoken]
... It feels like it's about someone else.

Gabe & Diana:
Please hear me calling...

Doctor Madden: [Spoken]
Make it about you.

Gabe & Diana:
Catch me I'm falling for good.

Diana: [Spoken]
We had Natalie to... And I know she knows. I couldn't hold
Her in the hospital. I couldn't let myself hold her.

Doctor Madden: [Spoken]
That's the first time you've mentioned Natalie in weeks
Of therapy.

Natalie:
She's not there...

Natalie & Voices:
She's not there...
She's not there...

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

[The next five parts are sung simultaneously]

Doctor Madden:
Make up your mind
You can live at last.
Make up your mind
To be fully alive.
Embrace what's inside
Replace what has died,
Then make up your mind
You'll survive.

Diana:
Catch me
I'm falling...
Falling...
Falling...

Dan:
He's not here.
Love,
It's
Time to go.
Oh!

Gabe:
I'm alive...
I'm alive...
Alive...
Alive...

Natalie:
Take a look...
Take a look...
The Invisible Girl,
Falling...

Diana, Dan, Gabe & Natalie:
Catch me I'm falling...
Catch me I'm falling...
Flying headfirst 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...
