lyrics

HOLD HER STRAIGHT NOW
AND DON’T LET HER BOW
KEEP HER STARS UP
KEEP HER STEADY

WE’LL FACE IT HEAD ON
SO PLEASE JUST HOLD ON
THIS 50 FOOT WALL
NOW STAND READY

SO TAKE THIS MAN ALONE
AND LET AFLOAT HIS MEN AND KEEL

AND LEAVE THEM FROM THE TOLL
ALONE, I KNOW, IS WHAT YOU FEEL

SO THIS IS THE DEAL

MY LUNGS FILL UP SLOW
SO CALM FROM THE COLD
BEFORE THESE EYES CLOSE
I PRAY THAT SHE’S HEARD ME

FEET LEAVE THE GROUND
LEGS BREAK AND POUND
SAILS ROPE AND WOOD
ALL SURROUND ME

SO TAKE THIS MAN ALONE
AND LET AFLOAT HIS MEN AND KEEL

LEAVE THEM FROM THE TOLL
ALONE, I KNOW, IS WHAT YOU FEAR

SO THIS IS THE DEAL

SO IN TURN I’LL GIVE
YOU ALL THE LOVE
SEARCHED FOR SO LONG, FLOATING ABOVE

IN THOUSANDS OF MEN
WITH THOUSANDS OF LIVES
WHO HAD KNOWN THE LOVE
FROM THOUSAND OF WIVES

SO PLEASE TAKE MY HEART
IT’S EMPTY AND COLD
AND WE COULD BOTH START
NOW GROWING OLD

THE LOVE I CAN GIVE
IT’S TRUE AND IT’S REAL

AS THIS IS THE DEAL

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."
