about

This song is about the struggles with love, identity, manlihood while coping with cancer

lyrics

Hold my shoulders level eyed
And call me out the way I know you used to

Something changed this time you lied
And looked at me a way I was not used to
I see the truth and know you’ll die
Along the way and will not mean to
Knowing i have bought more time
I need to live and love
The way I used to

The way I used to

Having this much time to give
I’ll be sure to make sure I have and kept you
One last time around the table
I‘ll chase you again the way I used to

You see the closest time to die a man can cheat
Or make him sure he loves you
I must admit flirting with death has made me see you in a light a light that suits you
The way I used to

Could you stay aside a man on broken knee?
Do you need to take more time to prove and see
That you could look at me
The way I used to
Hold your eyes
Be a man alive

The way I used to
Watch you smile

See you smile inside, the way I used to

The way I used to
The way I used to

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."
