Tom And Vinnie's Lyrics

 

This is just a small sample of some finished lyrics that Tom and I have written over the past 20 years. As you can imagine, there are hundreds more song samples and unfinished ideas. We plan on finishing at least a dozen songs this year and recording them with our band the Crucial Heads.

 

 

Restless, Restless

Gesimondo and Favale

 

You wore your purple dress

I put on my dancing shoes

A night like all the rest

I didn’t have a clue

 

I picked you up at ten

And to a fault you were quiet

I didn’t know it then

That I was off your diet

 

You said you needed time to think for yourself

While all the time you're thinking ‘bout somebody else

Now I can tell by the look on your face

That someone else has taken my place

 

What’s his name?

What’s his name?

What’s his name?

 

Chorus

Restless

[Restless, Restless]

It happens all the time

 

I love you

I love you

I like you

She's changed her mind

 

Restless

[Restless, Restless]

She starts to feel that way

 

You used to leave her

Breathless

Now you leave her with nothing to say

 

You never said it

Not even to this day

You made sure I read it

But you never signed your name

 

Now you tell your friends

How I left you in haste

But you don’t tell them

'bout this after taste

Now I can tell by the look on your face

That someone else has taken my place

 

Chorus

Restless

[Restless, Restless]

It happens all the time

 

I love you

I love you

I like you

She's changed her mind

 

Restless

[Restless, Restless]

She starts to feel that way

 

You used to leave her

Breathless

Now you leave her with nothing to say

 

 

 

Falling In Love [With The One I Loved]

Gesimondo and Favale

 

Lightening strikes,

Not once but twice

If, if you hold the key

 

I reach out blindly,

But where does it find me

Back, where I used to be

 

Now time heals all,

Wounds, great and small

Wounds, you can’t even see

 

Already you’re forgetting

All that was upsetting

As it fades, into history

 

Chorus

Cause now I’m falling in love

With the one I loved

I can’t believe it’s true

I’m falling in love

With the one I loved

It’s a feeling like déjà vu vu vu

 

You know I swore

That I’d never want to see her again

I couldn’t even think of her as a friend

But now I’m falling in love

With the one I loved

I can’t believe it’s you

 

Now familiar thoughts

That I always fought

No, longer seem so wrong

 

Your arms around me

Again have found me

Back, back where I belong

 

Chorus

Cause now I’m falling in love

With the one I loved

I can’t believe it’s true

I’m falling in love

With the one I loved

It’s a feeling like déjà vu vu vu

 

You know I swore

That I’d never want to see her again

I couldn’t even think of her as a friend

But now I’m falling in love

With the one I loved

I can’t believe it’s you

 

 

 

Headlines, Headlines

Gesimondo and Favale

 

When push came to shove

I struck up my love

With the wrong kind of ty-eye-pe

I fell for the hype

 

She caught me off guard

It wasn't so hard

For me to be ta-aa-aken

I followed my heart

 

Chorus

Headlines, Headlines

It's all coming back to me

I remember what you said

 

Headlines, Headlines

It cuts through the heart of me

And repeats inside my head

 

Headlines, Headlines

You're yesterday's news

 

This train won't turn back

It's me there on the track

So this is the ennnnnnnnd

Can't even preteeennnd

 

I didn't see the signs

Or read between the lines

The words that were spoken

I can't take them back

 

Chorus

Headlines, Headlines

It's all coming back to me

I remember what you said

 

Headlines, Headlines

It cuts through the heart of me

And repeats inside my head

 

Headlines, Headlines

You're yesterday's news

 

Bridge

There's a bridge and one day

It is gonna blow

There's a hitch and one day

It is gonna show

And then you'll know 

 

 

 

I Can't Love You Anymore

Gesimondo and Favale

 

I can't love you anymore

I can't wait here like before

I'm a can-do kind of guy

But your love has passed me by

I can't love you anymore

 

I can't wait for things to change

Or your life to re-arrange

I've been waiting far too long

What was right now feels so wrong

I can't love you anymore

 

If I could turn back time

To the day when you were mine

I'd take back the love I gave

Oh the heartaches I could save

 

I can't love you any less

Bitter tears and bitterness

Are the only things I have

Since our good love has gone bad

I can't love you anymore

 

(Instrumental Break)

 

If I could change your mind

To give the love you once denied

I’d give it one more try

Just to say goodbye

 

I can't love you anymore

I can't wait here like before

I'm a can-do kind of guy

But your love has passed me by

I can't love you anymore

 

 

Wile Away

Garner, Gesimondo and Favale

 

Wile away

All the time

While you're away from me

 

I can wait

I've been waiting years

To wait for you

 

Chorus

There was a time

This fool knew what he was here for

And I wouldn't mind

If you knew

That I care more

 

I know what this life is for

When this is not my life any more

 

Time away

Time away from you

Now seems so strange

 

I’m awake

And my dreams

Wake with me every day

 

Chorus

There was a time

This fool knew what he was here for

And I wouldn't mind

If you knew

That I care more

 

I know what this life is for

When this is not my life any more

 

Wile away

All the time

While you're away from me
