LYRICS
As a young man
I thought I knew everything
I thought I knew how to live
Completely clueless
When two thousand and five was the worst year of my life
You made it good
When I thought no-one could

But I was just a boy when I met you
Shouldn’t have let you in but I wanted to

On the night you left
I heard everything you’d say
I crumbled and crawled away
I woke up in an alleyway

Cos that night I raised my fist and in my fist I raised my drink
I drank to broken limbs
To bloodied lips
To losing all you thought you wanted

But I was just a boy when I met you
I shouldn’t have let you in but I wanted to
It was two thousand and five I thought this loss might be my life
Oh but I was just a boy when I met you

Seventeen and you think you know it all
Nineteen and you think you know it all
But I knew

I was just a boy when I met you.

Tellison London, UK

Tellison is a failed indie rock band from London with acute organisational difficulties. They've released two albums and a bunch of singles.

With the release of "Tact is Dead" Tellison are currently gearing up to release album number three, dusting off their guitars and referencing conventions and stepping up to take another swing at, if not the big time, at least the medium time.
