I - Wim Tapley EP Cover

I

Shadow

You know my heart

And I ain't got no room for selfish ways

But darling your love

Is something I don't need

I can explain

Nights when I couldn't forget you seem so distant now

(Turn around, settle down now)

Know that I don't want to hurt you I just can't go on

Something new is taking over

See it in your face, love

Don't you call me sugar

The only thing that seems to linger, oh

Is a shadow (oh)

Is a shadow (oh)

Darling please don't

Make this harder than it has to be

It kills me to know

I'm the reason why you're hurting

Never seemed right you were a friend at best

But then you're calling me yours

I'm thinking ‘bout the apathy, the lack of feeling

I'm sorry there’s something missing here

Did I think too much

Possibly

But that doesn't change the way I feel

About this whole situation

I'm chasing any chance that may bring some relief, because

Something new is taking over

See it in your face, love

Don't you call me sugar

The only thing that seems to linger

Something new is taking over

See it in your face, love

Don't you call me sugar

The only thing that seems to linger

Is a shadow

Peace of Mind

You, over there

Feeling like I’ve never seen your face before

Maybe I’m just ignorant but it seems you slipped off my radar

What’s the plan, man, why you tryna tear me down?

You’re sitting there, cooped up inside your safety net

Behind a screen feeling invincible, I don’t buy it

‘Cause you don’t even talk when I’m around

 

All of your words are nothing

If what you seek is trouble, I won’t help you out

I’ve got a good thing going

No use in traveling down the road that you’re on

 

But did you think that I’d just sit here and let it all burn?

This is my peace of mind so you can just slither away

Don’t you think sometimes you’re better off going unheard?

Just take a piece of my advice or things will never change

 

The critics are pretentious

Never ending bouts of boosting up themselves by putting others down

But I aim to be different

Spread a message to the kids that they can

Stand and do their thing and change the world they live in, oh

My mom told me perfection’s not the end goal

It’s incredible how quick they are to call out all your flaws like they don’t have ‘em

Really what’s the use in hating when there’s love?

 

All of their words are nothing

All that they seek is trouble, I won’t help ‘em out

Yeah, we’ve got a good thing going

No use in traveling down the road that they’re on

 

But did you think that I’d just sit here and let it all burn?

This is my peace of mind so you can just slither away

Don’t you think sometimes you’re better off going unheard?

Just take a piece of my advice or things will never change

If Only

(Wim Tapley:)

There’s a stirring, love

Can you feel it

‘Cause I know it’s been some time, but at the forefront of my mind is your touch

I’m more certain of

My own healing

So if I got to know you better, only God knows what we could become

 

It seems there’s no easy way to clear my chest

What we have’s at stake

If I slip up

Or you don’t feel the same

 

If only I could say the words

Maybe we could be something, love

If only every twist and turn

Wouldn’t just lead back to where we started from

If only you could see

If only you could see

I’m out here waiting for you, love

 

(Madeline Dailey:)

I can’t seem to shake this old feeling

So I’ve gathered up my thoughts

Scattered as they are

I know

In the hopes that you’d be with me

And I’d tell you every reason why I fell in love with you in the first place

 

(Both:)

If only I could say the words

Maybe we could be something, love

If only every twist and turn

Wouldn’t just lead back to where we started from

If only you could see

If only you could see

I’m out here waiting for you

 

(Wim Tapley:)

All I am is for what you are

So why are we spending this time apart

All I am is for you, love

(Both:)

All I am is for what you are

So why are we spending this time apart

All I am is for you, love

 

If only I could say the words

Maybe we could be something, love

If only every twist and turn

Wouldn’t just lead back to where we started from

If only you could see

If only you could see

I’m out here waiting for you, love

All We've Got is Love

Oh, Lately I’ve been wondering

About the way that your hand fits in my hand

I’m stumbling, I’m stuttering

Now it seems more often than not that there’s nothing I’d rather be doing than to be in your arms

They say it’s just a phase

That I’ll grow out of it in a matter of days, but it’s been weeks

And it seems my only weakness

Is that these feelings aren’t losing any strength

 

I don’t know if you’ll hold me tight

I don’t know why you’re stuck on my mind

 

But, oh

When you’re with me I’m home

Home is where you belong

Right here in my arms

Oh, dear

Remember that old feeling

What we got to fear

If all we’ve got is love

 

Darling I don’t think this is temporary

It’s scarily scarce of precariousness

‘Cause when you’re with me it’s the epitome of all of my dreams

It’s that feeling

Try to calm these nerves but I can’t seem to find a way

‘Cause the way your face is like a ray of sunshine

Light up my worst days

‘Cause you are the best thing

 

And, oh

When you’re with me I’m home

Home is where you belong

Right here in my arms

Oh dear

Remember that old feeling

What we got to fear

If all we’ve got is love

 

(Oh, Oh)

 

And, oh

When you’re with me I’m home

Home is where you belong

Right here in my arms

Oh dear

Remember that old feeling

What we got to fear

If all we’ve got is love

 

I don’t know if you’ll hold me tight

I don’t know why you’re stuck on my mind

Galileo

This is love if I’ve ever seen it

You’re the sun

I can’t helping feeling at home in your warmth

No use in being alone

I’m dying just to get out

Can I call you up?

 

Darling I’ve seen the stars, more than I’ll ever know

But, lately

Seems they mean

Nothing at all

Because you are all that’s in my sights

Care to come closer, love

Close your eyes

The stars can wait a while

 

Oh, you lift me when I’m feeling low

Oh, things are changing, this I know

But could you stay close to me

 

Darling I’ve seen the stars, more than I’ll ever know

But, lately

Seems they mean

Nothing at all

Because you are all that’s in my sights

Care to come closer, love

Close your eyes

The stars can wait a while
