lyrics

HEY!, THERE’S A MAN
LYIN’ IN THE RIVER
AND LYING TO HIMSELF

DON’T LET THAT MAN
FLOAT ON DOWN THE RIVER
CAN SOMEONE GET SOME HELP?
CAN’T ANYBODY HELP?

SOME OF THOSE WOULD SAY
IT TAKES A SMALL MAN
TO GIVE UP IN THAT WAY
DON’T LET HIM GET AWAY

WOAH NO, HE DIES ALONE TODAY
OH NO, WITH NO ONE THERE TO SAVE
OH NO, HE DIES ALONE TODAY
....ANYWAY

OH GOD IT’S ME
FLOATING DOWN THAT RIVER
IT’S ME I COULDN'T SAVE

I WOULD HAVE TO SAY
IT TAKES A LONELY MAN
DYIN’ IN THIS WAY
HE DIES ALONE TODAY

OH NO, I DIED ALONE TODAY
OH NO, WITH NO ONE THERE TO SAVE
OH NO, I DIED A LONELY DAY
OH NO WITH NO ONE THERE TO SAVE

DIES A LONELY DAY
LONELY DAY
DIES A LONELY DAY

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."
