about

"Lush and deceivingly complex, Chris Wilson's debut solo ep, Messy, is a pop assimilation of his past work and the bright future of the work to come. Chris mixes strings, inventive percussion, and rich layers of vocals and guitars, all culminating in borderline surreal first listen. If you're into textured pop that challenges your ears and brain, this four song ep should definitely be in your queue of records to check out."
- Charles Hastings of Latin For Truth

Track Name: You & I
I don't wanna call you
'Cause I don't think that you'd like to hear from me
I don't wanna see you
'Cause I don't think that you'd like the man you'd see

I don't wanna see you go
I would rather never know
You could be the next girl to break my heart
Or I could leave you now, before we ever start

I don't wanna know you
'Cause everyone I know has gone away
I don't wanna love you
'Cause no one that I've loved has ever stayed

I don't wanna see you go
I would rather never know
You could be the next boy to break my heart
Or I could leave you now, before we ever start
Track Name: The Light
From so far away
Can this feeling ever stay?
Let me stay the night
Let me stay another day
Lying next to me
Another shadow in the haze
Let's remember this
Before the lines all fade away

The light that stole the night from us
So beautiful, and so severe
It burnt your shape behind my eyes so bright
That I still see you here

From so far away
Will this feeling ever change?
Let me sleep tonight
Without the ghosts of yesterday
Lying all alone
I see your shadow in the haze
How can I forget you
When you've never gone away?

The light that stole the night from us
So beautiful, and so severe
It burnt your shape behind my eyes so bright
That I still see you here
Track Name: Rain On Me
Rain on me
Open up the sky
Let me see
The fading light

I don't know why

Come and gone
When did we forget the words?
Some were mine
And some were yours

I don't know why
Track Name: Here We Are
Here we are like wild things
Running naked through the trees
See the stars and hear them sing
It's a song for you and me

Hear them singing out
With no air to carry the sound

Here we are like a child king
With no reason to believe
In the scope of anything
Being further than our reach

See us reaching out
Never thinking to fear or doubt

Here we are like everything
Living far beyond our means
See the world of possibilities
Laid bare for all to see

See it all laid out
Before you and all around
