Note: This song is about reaching out to your loved ones who suffer from mental health issues.

EXTRA NOTE – The 3rd time you do A – starting from count 17 and onwards – I want you to change the counts from count 22 to 28. Because of Guy Sebastian’s different way of singing this verse it doesn’t make sense to stick to the original rhythm of the dance. Don’t change the steps but change the rhythm to that of a typical night club timing ‘6&7 8&1 2&3 etc.’
6&             Cross R behind L (6), turn ¼ L stepping L fwd (&) 12:00
7 – 8&       Turn ¼ L on L stepping R a big step to R side dragging L towards R (7), close L behind R (8), cross R over L (&) 9:00
