Track Name: After All
I was the boy with the coolest toys
I never really had it all
I just had a dad who gave his
And I was 9 with the future in my eyes
To be anything that I could be
Free of all catastrophe
I never had the dreams they had
To be cop or be a dad
When I turned 9 my dad he said
Here's a guitar, it changed me then

Whoa, what was he thinkin'?

After all, I found it all
I found the names of the songs
I got a gift they say
But it's a curse to me
I sacrificed all my life
Just to write this in time
I wouldn't change a thing
Anyways

By the time I was 16
I played everything it seemed
To mandolin, to piano
The sky was the limit where I would go
Holy shit, did I quote that?
I guess I did, but let's get back
To how I got to where I am
Combing the lands with my best friend
21 was a bitter age
I wasted away all of my days
On stupid bands and cheap old beer
Lost sight of the track that was clear
Two years later I'm back on track
With this fuckhead behind me
And he's just whack
But he's the one that's been there since
I fell off the wagon and lost my friends

What was I thinkin'?

After all, I found it all
I found the names of the songs
I got a gift they say
But it's a curse to me
I sacrificed all my life
Just to write this in time
I wouldn't change a thing
Anyways

And even after all the shit I've been through
I'll never give this up
Because anyone who knows can never get enough
I'll never give this up
I'll never let this go

(chorus)
