about

I wrote this track as an autobiography

lyrics

WELL, I DON’T KNOW THAT I’VE BEEN SOLD
THAT ANY STREETS ARE PAVED WITH GOLD OUT THERE

IF ANYTHING I‘VE SEEN SOME GOLD IN STRINGS
ATTACHED TO SONGS
I SING AND SHARE.

THE SILHOUETTES OF PEOPLES BEST
WOULD TEND TO FALL OUT FROM THE EMPTY SKIES

BUT WHAT I’VE GOT
IS THIS ONE SHOT
TO SHOW THEM WELL OR NOT
THAT I CAN FLY

SOME DAYS I’M DUMB
OTHER DAYS I’M OLD
BUT I HAVE FUN
LIVIN’ LIFE THIS BOLD

WOULD I BE GREAT?
OR NEVER WIN
HELL EITHER WAY
YOU’LL NOTICE BY MY FACE AND EYES
I SHOW MY INSIDES
WALKIN IN MY SKIN

SO THERE YOU HAVE IT
POINTED BLANK
RIGHT FROM ME
IN THE TREES I THANK AND LIVE

INTENTIONS FOR THESE SONGS I WRITE
ARE SO I’VE GOT PERFORMING NIGHTS TO GIVE

ALWAYS
LIVE WHO YOU ARE!!
ALWAYS
LIVE OUT OF YOUR HEART!!!

SOME DAYS I’M DUMB
OTHER DAYS I’M OLD
BUT I HAVE FUN
LIVIN’ LIFE THIS BOLD

COULD I BE GREAT?
OR NEVER WIN
HELL EITHER WAY

YOU’LL NOTICE THIS GUY
FROM THE INSIDE
WITH THE BLUE EYES
LIVIN’ HIS LIFE NOT WITHOUT PRIDE
WALKIN’ IN HIS SKIN!

WHEN YOU SEE IT FIT TO GIVE A SHIT AND SING TO THIS INSIDE YOUR CAR AR A R

THEN I WOULD NEVER HESITATE TO KEEP MAKE WITH HEART TO MAKE A SONG I INSTIGATE WITH HEAR - ar - arT

about

WiL

“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."
