Lyrics: I CAN’T TAKE YOUR T-SHIRT OFF THE BED
OR BARE TO THROW AWAY, THE FIRST SPORTS PAGE YOU NEVER READ
WISH I WOULD HAVE KISSED YOU, HELD ONTO YOU THAT NIGHT
THINK ABOUT WHAT I’D GIVE FOR ONE LAST GOODBYE

THOUGH YOU HAD TO LEAVE
PART OF YOU STILL LIVES WITH ME

I CAN FEEL YOU RIGHT HERE CHEERING FOR ME
SAYING “BABY THERE’S STILL WORK TO DO”
PLENTY OF DREAMS TO DREAM
AFTER YOU
I KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO LOVE COMPLETELY
I’M BLESSED TO BE AMONG THE LUCKY FEW
WHO HAS HAD EVERYTHING
AFTER YOU

WHEN HE LAUGHS, I SWEAR I SEE YOU THERE
THE SPARKLE IN HIS EYES, I’D RECOGNIZE IT ANYWHERE
YOU WOULD BE SO HAPPY TO SEE WHO HE’S BECOME
LITTLE LEAGUE AND FOOTBALL, NO DOUBT THAT HE’S YOUR SON

THOUGH YOU HAD TO LEAVE
PART OF YOU STILL LIVES WITH ME

I WALK HIM TO BUS EACH MORNING
MAKE SURE HE’S OLD ENOUGH TO BIKE TO SCHOOL
EVERYONE SAYS HE TAKES
AFTER YOU
HE TALKS TO YOU MOST EVERY EVENING
TELLS YOU ‘BOUT THE THINGS HE’S GOING THROUGH
THEN HE ASKS GOD TO LOOK
AFTER YOU

HOW I HATED THAT YOU WENT BEFORE ME
MADE ME FIND THE WILL TO MAKE IT THOUGH
HOW DOES MY HEART STILL BEAT?
AFTER YOU
SO GRATEFUL FOR THE YEARS YOU GAVE ME
HATE YOU HAD TO LEAVE, BUT WE’LL PULL THROUGH
WE’RE STRONG ENOUGH MY LOVE
AFTER YOU

Dave Tough shares his namesake with the famous jazz drummer (Tough's great uncle) who played with the likes of Woody Herman, Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey.

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
