about

I wrote this about my father packing my Mom, me and my sister up in Quebec and moving us to Calgary so he could work at Ingersol Rand.

lyrics

WHEN WE LEAVE ANOTHER HOME
I STAY UP AND CRY

THOSE WE KNOW WOULD NEVER BE A STAIN ON OUR LIVES

TIME TO LEAVE WITH ALL WE NEED HE PACKS UP HIS HEART

ALL LIGHTS AND HEAVY NIGHTS
AHEAD FOR US IN THE CAR

A FAMILY PLAN
IS UP AND COMIN’
NOW THE WEST IS WHERE WE GO

WE NEEDED GLOW
TO START THIS RUNNIN’

Now, TO THE LIGHTS OF GOLD

FALL INTO THE CITY NEW
THE STREETS YELLOW GLOW
FAMILY FRIENDS THEY TAKE US IN
WE SLEEP ON THE FLOOR.

MOTHERS GOT US LOVED AND COVERED HEAVY WITH HEART
BUT SOON A PLACE TO WORK
HE MAKES A HOME FOR THE START

A FAMILY PLAN WAS UP AND COMIN’
NOW THE WESTS’ WHERE WE CALL HOME

AND SEE SOME GLOW HAD STARTED RUNNIN’
FROM OUR HEARTS OF GOLD

WITH HOPES AND HEARTS WE SET FROM HOME
WE WENT OUT WEST AND FOUND THIS GOLD.

THE FAMILY PLAN IS UP AND RUNNIN’
NOW THE WEST WE CALL OUR HOME
AND WATCHED A GLOW THAT STARTED COMIN’
COMING FROM OUR HEARTS OF GOLD

WE’VE ALWAYS HAD THESE HEARTS OF GOLD.

“I’m a guy who sings stories; I’m not this remarkable guitar player, incredible singer, or unbelievable songwriter-I’m not any of those things. I’m just a guy who does all of those things and enjoys them a lot.”
That aside, Wils’ live performances have become legendary. One such performance was written up by the Calgary Sun as having so much "power and soul it could stop your heart."
