about

Dewveall Nashville, Tennessee

East Nashville's husband and wife rockers, Dewveall, have a bluesy, rock and soul sound. With leviathan Jonathon singing lead and lilliputian Mel breathing harmonies, Dewveall is a two person, one voice accord that makes texture, grit, rasp and whisper sometimes sound like soul singer Amos Lee and sometimes going the way of the more rambunctious Black Crowes. ... more

Track Name: Word
Word word word in the neighborhood
Word word word in the neighborhood

They say what goes around is gonna come around
Is that why the back door was broken down
In the robbery that took place in the hood last night
Word travels through the streets about a crime spree
Got all of the people on pins and needles
But the gun shop owner says it’s gonna be alright

Word word word in the neighborhood
Word word word in the neighborhood

Captain cold blooded killin’ soul, he’ll raise the death toll
Forced to shoot his mom when he was eight years old
They put a gun in the hand of child, taught him to fight
The streets are turning into mud, dirt mixed with blood
Got all the people sayin’ ‘nuff is enough
But the arms dealer says it’s gonna be alright

Word word word in the neighborhood
Word word word in the neighborhood
Word word word...

We don’t know how good we’ve got it
We just sit around and talk about it
But we don’t really give a shit about it
All we ever give are our words

Word word word in the neighborhood
Word word word in the neighborhood
Word word word in the neighborhood
Track Name: Believer
Look and you will find me
For I am not alone
Just trying to decipher
Things that I don’t know
Cause when you around me
I am so confused
For the things that I have hidden
Are there for you to view

Now I am a believer and you are the sun
You put your arms around me and take my troubles one by one
I am the darkness and you are the light
You shine your truth upon me and take away the night

From the very beginning
I was so afraid
For I knew that I had demons
Ready for the fray
And when you came courting
I stood not a prayer
For the darkness here within me
Illuminated like a flare

Now I am a believer and you are the sun
You put your arms around me and take my troubles
One by one by one by one by one

Now I am a believer and you are the sun
You put your arms around me and take my troubles one by one
I am the darkness and you are the light
You shine your truth upon me and take away the night
Track Name: Virginia
You welcomed me to where your secrets sleep
And I dressed up to prove that I belong
But the threads I’m wearing are out of season
And your invitation is gone

Oh Virginia, I let you down
I saw it on your face, I let you down
And now every time I look into your eyes you turn away
Take me with you, Virginia, to that place

And I never saw the place where you first landed
Though you always wanted to take me there
And I shyed away from the place you settled down
Am I too late for that now

Oh Virginia, I let you down
I saw it on your face, I let you down
And now every time I look into your eyes you turn away
Take me with you, Virginia, to that place

Virginia wait on me
Virginia wait on me
Virginia wait on me

Oh Virginia, I let you down
I saw it on your face, I let you down
I let you down
I let you down

And now every time I look into your eyes you turn away
Take me with you, Virginia, to that place
Forgive me, Virginia, today
Track Name: Runaway Sun
You’ll never hide from a runaway sun
You’re gonna fry in the heat
Temperatures rise like the smoke from a gun
You’ll never hide from a runaway sun

Falling down on my knees
I’ve been crawling ‘cross the desert and the sand with nothing to drink
A high stakes game of hide and go seek
Just praying that the woman don’t hear me when I breathe

You’ll never hide from a runaway sun
You’re gonna fry in the heat
Temperatures rise like the smoke from a gun
You’ll never hide from a runaway sun

She come unwound when she saw me last night
A peculiar situation I was in and it didn’t look right
A waste of breath syllables and line
There ain’t nothing I can say gonna change that woman’s mind

You’ll never hide from a runaway sun
You’re gonna fry in the heat
Temperatures rise like the smoke from a gun
You’ll never hide from a runaway sun

You’ll never hide from a runaway sun
You’re gonna fry in the heat

You’ll never hide from a runaway sun
You’re gonna fry in the heat
Temperatures rise like the smoke from a gun
You’ll never hide from a runaway sun
You’ll never hide from a runaway sun
You’ll never hide from a runaway sun
Track Name: Skeleton Key
You are a skeleton key
And me, I’m doors and doors of mystery
In a house full of shadows and empty shelves
Where the walls have no stories to tell

You unlock all my doors
And swing ‘em open, swing ‘em open
You whisper in my ear
And say it’s your time, it’s your time

I know, out there are streets of gold
But I can’t see beyond these boarded windows
Nailed into place by the work of my own hands
To shut me out of the promised land
You unlock all my doors
And swing ‘em open, swing ‘em open
You whisper in my ear
And say it’s your time, it’s your time
It’s your time, it’s your time

You unlock all my doors
And swing ‘em open, swing ‘em open
You whisper in my ear
And say it’s your time, it’s your time
It’s your time, it’s your time...
Track Name: Carry Me Home
There is a river where you can go
And all of your troubles are smoothed like the stone
You carry your mountain all alone
Stop and let the water carry you home

Carry me home
Carry me home
Carry me home
Where the river does flow

I heard a story of a man and his love
Made from the water mixed with the dust
Thrown from the garden, left with their lust
Till a man with a pure heart gave his water to us

Carry me home
Carry me home
Carry me home
Where the river does flow

Carry me home
Carry me home
Carry me home
Carry me home

Carry me home
Carry me home
Carry me home
Where the river does flow
