about

Dovetail clearly draws much of their musical inspiration from 60s and 70s era rock and roll, tapping into the simple yet dynamic arrangements and huge-sounding vocal productions of bands like The Beach Boys, The Byrds and The Beatles. Still, the band is able to create a fresh and modern sound, with frontman Philip’s voice channeling the likes of Tom Chaplin of Keane, or at times, Matthew Bellamy of Muse. Produced by Beau Patrick Bedford, Dovetail's debut full-length “Mount Karma" is an incredible 14 song journey that will surely captivate its listeners.

Track Name: Julie
I want to meet you where the river overflows your thoughts and dreams
Take me to the fountain, behind the veil
Where the light would shine
In the cold remember

There was a peace
That came at night
When I was your candle, Julie
I was your light

I was your candle, Julie
You knew how to light me up
Burning at both ends for you Julie
I wasn't bright enough

Ah, give me a break!

I'm just a puddle on the ground
And i'm the fake who feels no pain
When you walk right through me

There was a peace
That came at night
When I was your candle, Julie
I was your alright
When I was your light

I was your candle, Julie
You knew how to light me up
Burning at both ends for you Julie
I wasn't bright enough

You burned me out
and left me far away
But you still burn me out today
(You burned him out
and left him far away)
But you still burn me out today

I was your candle, Julie
You knew how to light me up
Burning at both ends for you Julie
I wasn't bright enough
Track Name: Big City
Sunshine,
Wise me up to your ways
Start me off with just your name
I guessed & called you Desiree

You're turnin' into Sunny
Either way you're just a kid
And i've seen you on the boulevard

CHORUS
The world can wait, just slow down
Big city, slow down and let go
And when you let go, and everything is lost
You got a lot

Sunset,
She's lighting up a cigarette
The visionary strategist
She's pickin' out a costume dress
The win is in your smile, and kid
You give it to me every time

The world can wait, just slow down
Big city, slow down and let go
And when you let go, and everything is lost
You got a lot

Painted on a canvass
On an ordinary white
Sunny drew from memory
Her legacy in lights

And she let go
And when she let go
The image that showed
was the picture of heaven, the image of God

The world can wait, just slow down
Big city, slow down and let go
And when you let go, and everything is lost
You got a lot
Track Name: Hey Hey Mama
Hey, hey Mama
When your world gets colder
put your head on my shoulder
I wanna get you...

In the shadow of youth
Where my dreams came to life
Through the window of truth
In the blink of an eye
I grew fond of a girl
Who was lonely and wild
She’d been hurt by her father
And I learned to stand up tall

Hey, hey Mama
When your world gets colder
Put your head on my shoulder
I wanna get you high

In the shadow of truth
Where my dreams go to die
To a widow of youth
Who had grown very high
And grew fond of a girl
Who was lonely and wise
She’d been burned by her father
And I learned to stand up tall

Hey, hey Mama
When your world gets colder
Put your head on my shoulder
I wanna get you high
Hey, hey mama
When you feel neglected
Put your head on my chest
I wanna get you high
Track Name: Heavy
In the falls I get frustrated
There is water coming hard
And all your mistakes and bad excuses
Are weighing into who you are

Then I see a golden sunrise
It brings a little hope & pulls us through
The after burn of dying stars trails into the great unknown
Like I've been dragging you around

You are heavy, You should know I love you
You are heavy, You should know I feel that weight
You are heavy, You should know I love you
You are heavy, And you should know I feel the weight

Well I'll be coming down the mountainside
With your name on my lips
Cause you been burning through my veins
To think I carried you when you were lame
And then I see the golden sunrise
It brings a little hope & pulls me through
The after burn of dying stars trails into the great unknown
Like I been dragging you around

You are heavy, You should know I love you
You are heavy, You should know I feel that weight
You are heavy, You should know I love you
You are heavy, And you should know I feel the weight

Tell me how Evelyn and Vicky, yellow
Haven't eased Abby's voice yet
Harming Evie-Ann's vision
You'd hear each and every yell
Track Name: See the Sun
Wedding bells ringing in the street
Making noise
Before you are the keeper
Hold to the giver

Strike your heart, The chord of faith
Speak the truth, There is not another one
You've got to get so down, don't you
to look up and see the sun
(Ann-Marie your time has come)
Don't let people's hate scare you
They'll steal your spirit
And the search for you has just begun

Megaphones, preach 'em to their knees
It's a noise parade
Instead of spreading your disease
Find the cure

Strike your heart, It's the chord of faith
Speak the truth, There is not another one
Hey, you've got to get
so down, don't you
to look up and see the sun
(Ann-Marie your time has come)
Don't let people's hate scare you
They'll steal your spirit
And the search for you has just begun

Let down your hair
Cause I wanna know who you are
when no one is around
Girl, do your worst
Show 'em how to feel again
The movement's in your heart

Hey, you've got to get
so down, don't you
to look up and see the sun
(Ann-Marie your time has come)
Don't let people's hate scare you
They'll steal your spirit
And the search for you
is just beginning
(Ann-Marie, see the sun
The search for you has just begun)
Track Name: Can't Feel You
I've been feeling so tired
Been feeling so tired
Feeling so tired when the sun shines
I've been looking alive
Been looking alive
Looking alive on the outside

I can't feel you heavy on mind
When nothing's on my mind
When I'm not thinking
I can't see you lying in my bed
When nothing's in my head
When I'm not looking

I've been wasting away
Been wasting away
Wasting away that you'd want me
I'm just sand in a glass
And I'm slipping so slow
Well I'd like to believe that

I can't feel you heavy on mind
When nothing's on my mind
When I'm not thinking
I can't see you lying in my bed
When nothing's in my head
When I'm not looking

I've been wasting away
Been wasting away
Wasting away that you'd want me
Track Name: Hurricane
This heavy feeling goin' round
Got people hiding underground
I sit in silence with your ghost
I am afraid of you the most

Cause you move just like a hurricane
I search for shelter from the rain
When you move just like a hurricane
I can't get near you, babe

These petty feelings got a way
And come slipping from you, I should say
You shake the bookcase from the wall
But I'm not afraid of you at all

Cause you move just like a hurricane
I search for shelter from the rain
When you move just like a hurricane
I can't get near you, babe

Cause I gotta know the places that you go
To let your chaos grow in the arms of desire
And I gotta know the reason that you cry
There's safety in your eye, but your tears are like fire

Cause you move just like a hurricane
I search for shelter from the rain
When you move just like a hurricane
I can't get near you, babe
Track Name: Easier to See
Deep inside your heart
Are you who you thought you’d be
Beauty with age, nothing more
Everything else is vanity

But the man in the mirror
When you’re cleaning your teeth
When you’re plugging your hair
Is easier to see

I could never be what you want me to be
There is not a cure for the problem you see
I could never give what you wanted
Though you thought you got the best of me

I’m running out of time
To leave a holy legacy
Stealing the day from the night
And i’m begging for harmony

But dreams of a boy
Are the same as a man
Though his vision gets worse
It’s easier to see

I could never be what you want me to be
There is not a cure for the problem you see
I could never give what you wanted
Though you thought you got the best of me
Track Name: Listen Children
Love, we need none
When we have enough
Gone is the god of the mourning sons and daughters
Song on your lips is a loaded gun
Track Name: Story
Jenny, if I could see how the years were gonna change your smile
Though I might linger for a little while
If only to hold back your tears
I’d press on cause i’ve seen how the new day uncovers remedies
For the heartache you’ve suffered on account of me
And the road will get narrow, we push on

We write this story as we go
We can’t take back the stones we throw
We are immovable as one

Jenny, when we are wise to the simple nature of our sin
I believe we uncover new life again
Now the road will get narrow, we push on

We write this story as we go
We can’t take back the stones we throw
We are immovable as one

I can still remember how the sun fell on your face
The passage that you quoted when you said you’d never walk away

We write this story as we go
We can’t take back the stones we throw
We are immovable as one
Track Name: Speak
Little flower speak in tongues I never hear
With a vase for feet come walk with me
Through the wooden door
When it creaks cover your ears

Let the yellow light
Make yellow eyes with you

Whisper in my ears
Hide the things that I don’t like about you away
Scream into my face
Tell me how I never looks at you
Makes you the loneliest
But you love me anyway

Run away with me
When you can’t feel at all
When you just don’t believe in me
Underneath the stars
When they shine don’t close your eyes
Let the yellow dawn
Awake your mind again

Whisper in my ears
Hide the things that I don’t like about you away
Scream into my face
Tell me how I never looks at you
Makes you the loneliest
But you love me anyway

Turn around, my love
When you can’t see the fear inside your eyes
I know it’s there

Whisper in my ear
Hide the things that I don’t like about you away
Scream into my face
Tell me how I never looks at you
Makes you the loneliest
But you love me anyway
Track Name: Get Down
Bella’s a loser and she’s living all alone
The future is her home
She’s getting into something with her eyes closed
Leave off your glasses you can try to play the fool
The future is a mine shaft

It’s gonna get you down

Our tears of silence flood the empty streets
Where people used to sleep
Now we have cleaned up all our violence
Here living water is a scarce commodity
The future of our children...

It’s gonna get you down
Track Name: The Road
Tell me your story
I wanna read upon your heart
Tacit and boring
Reads like an epic from the start

“I don’t want to live forever, no
I just want to find a good way to go
I don’t want to beat a trending,
Never ending road”

Lend me a moment
Something that pain cannot erase
When you were younger
Did you believe in dying days?

Oh I want to know you
Way beyond the veil of vision, far
And deep in the pages
Get lost in the space of distance stars

I don’t want to live forever, no
I just want to find a good way to go
I don’t want to beat a trending,
Never ending road

Do you believe in dying days?
Do you believe the stars could change?
Do you?

I don’t want to live forever, no
I just want to find a good way to go
I don’t want to beat a trending,
Never ending road
Track Name: Mount Karma
Prodigal daughter
Won't you come back home
Come back home & I will kiss you
Jessi, the time has come to pick and choose
I chose you, now come and get me

When the curtain falls and laughter dies
And people's eyes are looking
On another muse
I'll be missing you
I'll miss you

Like a child we bicker and fight
Stay out of the light
In dark shadows you show me your bad side
Stars collide when the planets align
It's a flaw in design, but you can't see it
Show me your good side

Woman, what's your story?
Who's your father?
He could show me

In the veins of karma culture
You can earn and honest living
But if you lose what you've been giving
Your heart is cheating,
but you are blood in the veins of karma culture

In the sun and the rain
When we're really all the same
Upon the righteous and the damned
We feel the pains of karma culture

Up on Mount Karma
When I was younger
My life flashed before my eyes
