Tough Goodbye

Album: Set You Free (2013)
  • This Tony Martin and Josh Thompson penned song is the opening track of Set You Free, which Allan sequenced to be a break-up album. He explained to American Songwriter magazine: "It starts with 'Tough Goodbye' and goes through anger and whiskey and all the things that would go along with a good break up. Then it winds you out with 'Good As New.'"
