Word 02:51
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

Believer 03:32
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

Virginia 04:02
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

Runaway Sun 03:35
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

Skeleton Key 04:38
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...

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

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
