lyrics

As a young man,
I thought I knew everything,
I thought I knew how to live,
Completely clueless.
When 2005 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,
I 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.
Cause 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 let you,
It was 2005 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.
