Lyrics: Picture how your nights would be sleeping soundly
Softly as the moonlight falls on the trees
Picture all the dreams you’ll keep breathing freely
Every night’s a picture girl if you believe

Picture how your days would be speaking gently
Simple as a mirror shows what you really are
Picture all that you would learn listening slowly
Every day’s a picture girl if you believe

Always spinning with the world
You are missing all the sunsets
Still the universe goes on around you

So come outside and play a while
Before your body comes to take you
All the walls that keep you safe
Will crumble down and break you

Lead
Bridge

Picture you are beautiful and you will be
Coloring the darkest times with a smile
Picture now that you are loved and you will see
All the while the picture girl was there inside

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."
