Before You Go
[Into: Complete + (Cat Elvin)]
Before you go (Before you go)
Before you (I need you to know)
I need you to know, so
Before you go (Before you go)
Before you (I need you to know)
I need you to know, so

[Verse 1: Complete]
I hate that I'm gonna have to adapt
You were the closest thing I ever really had to a Dad
You'd show me support with a pat to the back
In fact, you would clap every time that I spat you a rap
Sat on your lap, you showed me the cheer or Christmas
Each year you'd sit with me, hearing a gift list
Then kiss me on a cheek with a beard that itches
Cause I always left Santa some beer & biscuits
When tears persistеd, you'd wipe em away
If I was bored or lonеly you would be delighted to play
From the piggy back rides to the slides that you made
I was excited every time I was invited to stay
The advice that you gave, you've spoken a tonne
& I will cherish every bit until I'm over & done
Alan Elvin, I know that there can only be one
But you're my Grandad, the man that I hope to become
I'm saying
[Chorus: Complete + (Cat Elvin)]
(Before you go)
I need you to know that you're still gonna breathe forever
(I need you to know) You will live through me & never will you leave
Wherever we end up we will be together, I'm saying
(Before you go)
I need you to know that you're still gonna breathe forever
(I need you to know) You will live through me & never will you leave
Wherever we end up we will be together, I'm saying

[Verse 2: Complete]
The funniest bloke I know, always up for a joke
Even after having a blood clot cut from your throat
You're tougher than most cause even though you suffered a stroke
You've stuck on your road to recovery with courage & hope
Encouraging those who you love when they're stuck on a slope
To rise up & stay strong, you've helped others cope
Only one of your arms work but you chuck us a rope
So every time you hug us it feels like you hug us with both
I'm still puffing a smoke, even after what it did to you
It's hard to stop but every time I start to cough, I picture you
I've seen the aftershock, & now your heart is clogged
I wish that I could pa** the docs my heart to swap & give to you
I miss the view from the Albany house
I think about it now & the nostalgia is grouse
For hours we'd crouch on the roof & without any doubts
I knew I'd be safe with you while I was counting the clouds
I'm saying
[Chorus: Complete + (Cat Elvin)]
(Before you go)
I need you to know that you're still gonna breathe forever
(I need you to know) You will live through me & never will you leave
Wherever we end up we will be together, I'm saying
(Before you go)
I need you to know that you're still gonna breathe forever
(I need you to know) You will live through me & never will you leave
Wherever we end up we will be together, I'm saying

[Verse 3: Complete]
I'm so sorry for the worry that I brought to the fam
Caught in a jam, nothing went according to plan
But even through all the trauma, you supported your Grandson & Mum
Even when I thought I was damned
You're more of a man than anyone I've met in this Earth
The lessons I've learnt from you, I can't express in a verse
I remember all the times that you would trek it to Perth to play Soccer
Even when the refs were the worst
The stress of this hurts, so I'm thinking of it calmly
But I promise that I'll there for Jacinta & Ashanti
For my Aunties, for my uncle, I'll be giving them an army
& whenever Nanny needs me I'll be with her in a heartbeat
I'll hug my mum & let her know that I love her
& that you'll always be close to me because you're floating about her
You're my Grandad, my father figure, close as a brother
So no matter where we go we'll still both have each other
I'm saying
[Chorus: Complete + (Cat Elvin)]
(Before you go)
I need you to know that you're still gonna breathe forever
(I need you to know) You will live through me & never will you leave
Wherever we end up we will be together, I'm saying
(Before you go)
I need you to know that you're still gonna breathe forever
(I need you to know) You will live through me & never will you leave
Wherever we end up we will be together, I'm saying

[Outro: Complete + (Cat Elvin)]
I just hope that one day I can make you proud & for the fans' sake
I'll stay strong as our secret handshake & I hope I don't let you down
(I just hope that one day I can make you proud & for the fans' sake
I'll stay strong as our secret handshake & I hope I don't let you down)

I love you Grandad
