A Faint Illusion
Tides of Man Lyrics


I know you know, despite your reservations,
Out of everything in this world, I choose you,
It goes to show, despite our conversations,
Back when you were just a little girl, we had no clue,
Just what we were getting ourselves into,
We were merely trying something new.

Dissolve myself in you,
'Cause I'm not gonna,
Not gonna give you up,
No I'm not gonna,
Not gonna give you up,
Cancel myself to feel you,
'Cause I'm not gonna,
Not gonna give you up,
No I'm not gonna,
Not gonna give you up.

I know you know, despite the implications,
We were out of character, I always knew,
Just what we were getting ourselves into,
We were merely trying something new.

Dissolve myself in you,
'Cause I'm not gonna,
Not gonna give you up,
No I'm not gonna,
Not gonna give you up,
Cancel myself to feel you,
'Cause I'm not gonna,
Not gonna give you up,
No I'm not gonna,
Not gonna give you up.

When we used to lay ourselves out,
On the front lawn of their ivory towers,
We would show our bodies to world,
Then we would go home,
And work on a castle of our own.

You were impatient, I was a fallback,
A dirty mistake, you never called back,
You were salvation, I never told you.

You were impatient, I was a fallback,
A dirty mistake, you never called back,
You were salvation, I never told you,
I always had the notion,
I would fall in love with you,
You were a call girl, I was a gentleman,
A faint illusion of your simple plan,
I was salvation, you never told me,
That you always had the notion,
That you knew what we would be.

I know you know, despite your reservations,
Out of everything in this world, I choose you.

We were merely trying something new.

Dissolve myself in you,

No I'm not gonna not gonna give you up
Cancel myself to feel you,
'cause I'm not gonna not gonna give you up.
No I´m not gonna not gonna give you up.

When we used to lay ourselves out on the front lawn
Of their ivory towers,
We would show our bodies to the world.
Then we would go home and work on a castle of our own.

You were impatient, I was a fall back.
A dirty mistake, you never called back.
You were salvation,
I never told you I always had a notion

You were impatient, I was a fall back.
A dirty mistake, you never called back.
You were salvation,
I never told you I always had a notion
I would fall in love with you.
You were a call girl, I was your gentleman
A faint illusion of your simple plan.
I was salvation.
You never told me you always had the notion that you knew
What we could be.

I know you know.
Despite your reservations
Out of everything in this world,
I choose you.

My fan girl heart has exploded. The piano accompaniment is perfection and I will never get over how incredibly good Tilian's raw voice is. Lovely. Absolutely lovely.

My fan girl heart exploded too. And i'm a guy.

Sean David

+Judge Page he is the new dgd singer. tides of man is his first band.

Pieces Of Eight

@***** Whatever, I actually got to see him live with Tides, and he was nothing short of spectacular. His Voice is raw and powerful.

Judge Page

@***** he sounds exactly like this live in Dance Gavin Dance maybe even better live

Matt Magee

@***** its called pre recorded and you are obviously have never been in a studio as there is no unnatural slides which would more then hint at auto tune as there is no un natural slides in his voice there is absolutely no way to prove there is auto tune unless you were the audio engineer who tracked this mixed and mastered this which I highly doubt

Discovering this 5 years too late during quarantine.

@Pat W yeah he got kicked

Angell marie Crawford

@Pat W Don't feel bad. They kicked him out of TOM I don't remember exact details. I think it's cuz he auditioned or sang for Saosin. There is history of Tilian video somewhere on YouTube where he talks about it.

Pat W

I kinda feel bad for Tides of Man. They had Tilian. Tilian! Then Tilian went to DGD and now they're....instrumental?
