about

"His songs weave to together a straight-ahead purity of heart tangled up by loss, despair, hope, and love, telling stories of the ways that our emotions sometimes get the better of us and the ways we strive to come to terms with them." - Dan Carrigan, No Depression

about

William Wild Knoxville, Tennessee

William Wild’s inaugural release pays homage to the musical pioneers of the counterculture revolution with their uniquely dynamic synthesis of 1960’s folk and 1970’s rock ‘n’ roll. The group’s distinct blend of acoustic instrumentation, layered vocals and lush strings embellished by heavy percussion and dark guitar tones draw comparisons to Crosby, Stills & Nash, Led Zeppelin, and Fleetwood Mac. ... more

Track Name: Sleeptalk
William Wild - Sleeptalk

I’ve been talking in my sleep,
I’ve been wondering what it means,
I’ve been wondering why I never saw the dawn,
All the while long.

I’ve been dreaming you were hear,
I’ve been seeing things unclear,
You’ve been thinkin’, prayin’, sayin’ it’s a fog,
All the while long,
All the while long.

Open up your eyes and take a look in mine,
I’m telling you I’m never gonna leave,
Even when you run like a bullet shot out a gun,
I’m gonna let you know where you need to be.

I’ve been marchin’ to the beat,
Hittin my drum on the 1’s and 3’s,
And now I’m wonderin’ how I never heard the song,
All the while long,
All the while long.

Open up your eyes and take a look in mine,
I’m telling you I’m never gonna leave,
Even when you run like a bullet shot out a gun,
I’m gonna let you know where you need to be.

I would rather end up lyin’ face down,
Than spend my time feelin’ out the waves,
And Lord I’d rather end here as a young man,
Than wind up gettin’ old and never loved

Open up your eyes and take a look in mine,
I’m telling you I’m never gonna leave,
Even when you run like a bullet shot out a gun,
I’m gonna let you know where you need to be
I’m gonna let you know where you need to be.
Track Name: Morning
William Wild - Morning

I can see the sun, I can see the day,
Crawling closer as the night fades away.
I can feel the light, shining down on me,
Oh Lord, I better go back to sleep.

Every morning I get so confused on what I’m supposed to do,
And I don’t know who you’ve become,
Or who to talk to anymore.

I fell in love when I was seventeen,
Never learned to be alone.
And I broke away from everything I need,
And I’ll never be the same,
At the bottom of a sea without a line.

I’ll be the first to go and you’ll be the last to leave,
But I’m sure we’ll work it out.
And I’m tired of getting old without a single dime to show,
But I can’t keep worryin’ about it.
And I’ve got a lot to say, but it comes out the wrong way,
So I keep on writing songs.
I don’t know at all where I’m gonna be this fall…but I’ll be there anyways.

I fell in love when I was seventeen,
Never learned to be alone.
And I broke away from everything I need,
And I’ll never be the same,
At the bottom of a sea without a line.
Track Name: Steady Now
William Wild - Steady Now

I was the first of my brothers to find I was nothing without the love of God,
But I’ll be the last of my Mother’s to fall on my knees when I notice I am wrong.

Oh Death, won’t you give me a second chance?
I’m looking for an easy way out.
I need it more than the company I’m searchin’ for,
I feel it runnin’ down my spine.

I was the first of my brothers to find he was lyin’ out in the rain,
but I’ll be the last of my mother’s to cry or talk about the doubts that I hide.

Oh Death, won’t you give me a second chance?
I’m looking for an easy way out.
I need it more than the company I’m searchin’ for,
I feel it runnin’ down my spine.

Steady now as the clock turns,
Steady now we’re getting closer.
Steady now we’re getting closer.
Steady now we’re getting closer.
Steady now we’re getting closer.
Track Name: Dreamin'
William Wild – Dreamin’

There you go again I heard you say,
with your eyes I heard you scream,
Still in love with their olive shade.

It’s not the first time I ran away,
Not the last time I’ll be afraid,
But you’ve got everything I need.

All my love’s like a fading sun when I’m on the run,
I’ll be gone like the light from dawn when the day is done.

I’ve been thinkin’ about the way that we feel in love,
I’ve been thinkin’ about the times that we had alone,
I’ve been thinkin’ about the way I want my life to be,
I’ve been dreamin’ about you, I’ve been dreaming about you.

Back and forth and side to side,
I could never really make it right,
I have tried to let you inside.

I’ll be true if you’ll be true,
Oh i feel like it’s I do,
I’ll be true if you’ll be true

All my love’s like a fading sun when I’m on the run,
I’ll be gone like the light from dawn when the day is done.

I’ve been thinkin’ about the way that we feel in love,
I’ve been thinkin’ about the times that we had alone,
I’ve been thinkin’ about the way I want my life to be,
I’ve been dreamin’ about you, I’ve been dreaming about you.
Track Name: When I've Been Gone
William Wild - When I’ve Been Gone

Come on son help me out,
It’s cold out here, you’re all I’ve got,
Come on son help me out.

Come on son I’m getting tired,
I feel the blame I feel the fire,
Come on son I’m getting tired.

I’m getting tired of playing the game,
I’m getting tired of feeling ashamed.

What of love love? What of peace?
What of the sky? What of the seas?
What of the birds and the songs they sing?
What do they mean?

What of the hour? What of the day?
What of the years I ran away?
What about those times I almost changed?
What do they mean?

When you are old?
What do they mean when you’ve learned to cope?
When I’ve been gone?
What do they mean you can’t recall?

What of love love? What of peace?
What of the sky? What of the seas?
What of the birds and the songs they sing?
What do they mean?

When life goes on?
What do they mean when you can’t recall?

When I’ve been gone?
What of the birds and the songs they sing?
When I’ve been gone?
What about those times I almost changed?
Track Name: Sepia Swirl
William Wild - Sepia Swirl

We found out the hard way,
And laid in the yard babe,
And painted our faces blue.

And ran through the garden,
And raised up our arms when,
We saw the sunshine through.

When the breeze blows,
And the cold weather grows,
And the humming bird that sang our tune,
Exists the room.
Season’s they come and they go,
The ivory path turns to stone,
But you painted my world,
The almond shaped eyes of a girl,
Walked through the sepia swirl,
And opened the door.

When the breeze blows,
And the cold weather grows,
And the humming bird that sang our tune,
Exists the room.
Season’s they come and they go,
The ivory path turns to stone,
But you painted my world,
The almond shaped eyes of a girl,
Walked through the sepia swirl,
And opened the door.
