Julie 03:56
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

Big City 04:14
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

Hey Hey Mama 04:41
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

Heavy 04:04
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

See the Sun 04:17
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)

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

Hurricane 03:11
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

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

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

Story 04:09
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

Speak 03:55
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

Get Down 02:41
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
13.
The Road 04:25
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

Mount Karma 04:52
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

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.
