about

Tom Savage Trio Kingston, Ontario

Kingston, Ontario's Tom Savage Trio have been putting their own unique stamp on the Country music genre since 2007, when they began the process of putting songs together for their critically-acclaimed debut release, The County Line. The result was the birth of what Bassist Geoff Chown coined " Dirt Road Rock And Roll"- a blending together of Rock, Alternative Country, Blues, and Jam band elements. ... more

Track Name: Everything Intertwined
nothing really ever blows my mind anymore
i've been crippled by decisions
and the slamming of doors
I've been beaten to a pulp
come crawlin back for more
nothing really ever blows my mind anymore

nothing really seems to get you out of my head
i've been drinking a week straight
and laying here in bed
i'm beginning to believe that i've been somehow misled
nothing really seems to get you out of my head

i don't know what i would do
if you said you'd be mine
it seems that i can only bide my time

you and I were made of stars
stars were meant to shine
the thought of that sends shivers down my spine

everyone and everything is intertwined

No one that we lose ever really goes away
they only change their form and linger on within the grey
Preserved in memory as we face another day
No one that we lose ever really goes away
Track Name: A Highway Calling Us
you can call it what you want
but i don't want to fool myself anymore

you can look the other way
but there's nothing that can make it like it was before

as the dawn breaks before us and we don't want this to end
if we forget for one moment we can forget to pretend

there's a highway calling us
there's a highway calling us.

i know you got a guy
but he doesn't treat you like he should

you could give me a try
I know what its like to be misunderstood

you can punch that clock for 20 years or until it takes you down
Or you can pack your things and follow me out this two bit town

there's a highway calling us
there's a highway calling us


there's a highway calling us
and i don't know where it's gonna take us girl
all i got are the clothes on my back
I can't promise you the world

we've both taken our hits and seen our share of sorrow comin' down the line
If you've had enough of the bitterness, I'd say it's time to drink the wine

I'm gassin' up the car
one last chance for you to tell me no
Girl I know you're scared
but the world is ours, all we have to do is go

As the dawn breaks before us, honey, put your hand in mine.
now all we've got is each other, all we've got is time

there's a highway calling us X4
Track Name: Everyone's In Love With You
everyone's in love with you
you could try to laugh it off
but you know it's true
deep down inside I had some proof
but my heart could only hold so much

every look from your eyes
it can see right through
and I don't have a choice but to tell the truth
so much for small talk's forgiving crutch


everywhere i go you're there
wish it didn't bother me
wish i didn't care
wish i wasn't so damn scared
to let myself feel anything

been sleepwalking for so long
now i daydream about doing wrong
i awoke to find 10 years had gone
i thought i knew everything

Now i'm a stranger in my own mind
left behind in the daily grind
in need of defending, i've been much maligned
which suit of armour did you bring?

we are ghosts living and dead
god give us our daily bread
But i'll be down at the pub instead
trying to wash away the sting

everyday is another chance
to fill our heads with dreams of romance
electricity exchanged through a fleeting glance
if only we were to touch

everything has changed for me
i'm in a life boat floating on the sea
while everyone else is sipping green tea
talking current events and such

everyone's in love with you
you could try to laugh it off
but you know it's true
deep down inside I had some proof
but my heart could only hold so much
Track Name: Alcohol
alcohol alcohol
got me so blind i can't see
alcohol alcohol
gonna be the death of me

three band bill on a tuesday night
no money in the till
we ain't puttin' up a fight
keep feeding us whiskey
feeding us beer
we'll get on stage when we're slated to appear
if the room starts spinnin'
we'll hold on tight
til the last man is standing at the end of the night


Another shot might
get you through the night
But your dreams are about as real
as your future is bright
we're gonna keep it real
til the sun puts us down
gonna make you feel something
might even put you on the ground



that rooster's crowin
it's the break of dawn
time to shake it off
time to get a move on
another 10 stops
before the tour ends
if we don't die tryin
we'll be seeing you again
