The songs cover a mixture of emotions inspired by events from the last year of Chris's life, observations on people, finding yourself and place in the world and new angles on being dumped by the love of your life, despite some of the melancholic content, the songs are inspiring and rousing, with crowds at gigs singing and dancing along.
