Music with Meaning: Richard Morris

Richard Morris explains the meaning behind his song “Worried”:-

The song Worried came from a feeling of desperation and the want to help someone very close to me suffering with depression. Until a few years ago I had not been exposed to anyone suffering from mental health issues and my immediate feeling was that I didn’t know how to help and I didn’t realise how much it would affect my life and others around me. The song Worried tells the story of everything that initially went through my mind at the time. Since playing the song live I’ve fortunately seen it connect with people and I now always try to use it as a positive opportunity to speak about mental health during my shows. I’ve definitely learnt through experience that even if you don’t know how to help, sincerely listening and talking to someone can make a world of difference in that person’s outlook, even if it’s just for one day. I try to use the song to portray that it’s okay to be you, it’s okay to feel different and there’s lots of great help and advice out there for people who need it.
