Tell Somebody

By Claire Clarke

Claire explains the story behind her beautiful R&B song: "I wrote the song "Tell Somebody" in 2017 whilst going through a very dark time in my life, which i now know was real depression. I experienced suicidal thoughts and constantly used the words "everyone is better off without me" and "no-one would care if i died" that kind of thing, but i was tired of keeping my feelings to myself, and decided to share my feelings with close family and later on found the courage to see a counsellor. Because of the inner pain I felt, I didn't want to wish this on anyone, and so wrote the song to encourage anyone experiencing similar or worse, to talk to someone and not keep it to themself. That's it in a nutshell!!"
