about

"The debut EP from Toronto singer/songwriter Kevin Myles Wilson makes a solid first impression. The spacious arrangements – essentially just Wilson singing over quietly picked acoustic guitar – leave lots of opportunity for us to zero in on his voice, which is brawny, restrained and full of sincerity." -Carla Gillis, NOW magazine.

Track Name: My Son
I wish I had a memory of my real dad
But he died when I was one and all I've got is this gold chain
But I don't feel sorry for myself 'cause I know that that won't help
Take away the pain

And my brother was 6 and maybe that explains why he's the way he is
But my mom told me something that my brother said
He said "Oh momma, please get us a new daddy"
And that's exactly what she did

And I can't imagine just how hard it must have been for him
To join my family and step father two kids
Because he didn't have to raise me and someday I hope to be
Even half the man he is

And I couldn't have asked for anyone to be a better dad
Because he'd drag me out of bed everyday at 6am
And he'd drive me to the rink and tie up my hockey skates
And for that I must thank him

And he taught me the rights and wrongs of treating your lady
Like never show up late if she spends all day making you a nice dinner
And when you get home from work, make sure that the first..
Thing you do is kiss her

And I couldn't grow a beard 'til I left home
And so I had to learn how to shave it on my own
And I feel sorry for my dad because that is something that
I feel sorry for my dad 'cause that's something that
I'd like to teach my son
I'd love to teach my son
I can't wait to teach my son

And sometimes I feel so bad because I don't say enough
I love you dad.
Track Name: The Wasted Years
I have wasted years
With worry and with the fear
That my life is going no where
And I don't have a clue
What I'm gonna do
And that makes me so scared

And I wish I'd wake up
And I'd suddenly just know
And have my whole life
Lined up just like dominoes
But I guess that defeats
The point of the journey
Of finding out who I'm gonna be

And you lived life so fast
You made every moment last
Forever
And I miss you every day
And I wish that you'd come stay with me
For a moment

And I wish I'd wake up
And I'd suddenly just know
And have my whole life
Lined up just like dominoes
But I guess that defeats
The point of the journey
Of finding out who I'm gonna be

But I keep pushing on
Down this road all alone
I know where I come from
But where I'm going is still unknown

I wish I'd wake up
And I'd suddenly just know
And have my whole life
Lined up just like dominoes
But I guess that defeats
The point of the journey
Of finding out
Of finding out
Of finding out who I'm gonna be
Track Name: Meet Me Halfway
If you feel what I feel
Let's put our pride away
And let's meet halfway tonight
And look into each others eyes
And feel our pain disappear
And for the moment just feel alright

And you know you should leave
But I'll stay stay please

And meet me halfway and I'll meet you
Meet me halfway and I'll meet you
Meet me halfway and I'll meet you
Meet me halfway and I'll meet you

Well I know that you've closed
All your doors and windows
So anyone you don't know can't see
But I'm alone out in the cold
Please let me inside, a warm place to hide
Is all my heart needs

So I'll knock on your door
And I won't ask for more

So meet me halfway and I'll meet you
Meet me halfway and I'll meet you
Meet me halfway and I'll meet you
Meet me halfway and I'll meet you

I'll meet you in Terrytown
That little place that we talked about
I can't wait until that day
When I'll see your face again

So meet me halfway and I'll meet you
Meet me halfway and I'll meet you
Meet me halfway and I'll meet you
Meet me halfway and I'll meet you
Track Name: More Than Love
Our love ended a long time ago
And I've heard you've moved on and found a new love
And I know that I should go find someone too
But I just don't want to get over you

Our love wasn't perfect, it had it's problems
And we tried so hard to fix them, I'm sorry I gave up
But now that you're gone I don't know what to do
'Cause I just don't want to get over you

'Cause we were more than love
We were more than love
We were more than love

Since our love ended, life's felt so tough
'Cause it's not just me that lost you, we both lost us
And I'll wait 'til the day you feel what I do
'Cause I just don't want to get over you

I don't think I'll ever get over you
Track Name: Ode To A Businessman
I wanna put on my suit
And tighten my tie
Take the train downtown
And work from 9 to 5
From Monday to Friday if I can
'Cause I wanna be a businessman

A poor musician
If every girls dream
But not if he's still struggling
When he's 43
At that age, they want someone with a plan
'Cause I wanna be a businessman

But to be honest I love
I love being at home
Ideally I don't want to spend my whole life
On the road
'Cause I don't know how much traveling I could stand
So I wanna be a businessman

But deep down inside, there's this feeling I get
And you wouldn't understand, unless you've felt it
It's like you've had 5 drinks, when you haven't had a sip
And I feel it
Every time I do this!

Someday I want to
Support a big family
But I can't do that
On my server's salary
And it's so hard to make a living
In a band

But I just can't be
No, I just can't be
'Cause I don't wanna be
A businessman
