Biography

It took them two years to find each other. The city has been training them. And when they finally met late in 2007 they knew the mix was right. The Dovetail Joints are a perfect mesh of pop sensibilities and rock flair. They play highly original music, with choruses that have a nasty habit of getting stuck in your head for days on end. Becca comes from hawaii and brings her aloha into her music with her sensuous voice and jam style. In DTJ songs you can hear influences from reggae, classic rock and funk all merging to create a huge sound of epic rock. The enormous combination of talents, personalities and harmonies makes hearing The Dovetail Joints a truly memorable experience.

Lyrics

Drown

Written By: Becca Smith

It seems the time just slips away
All melting into not kissing you another day
I bet you think of her the way I think about you
That’s how I understand you gotta do what you gotta do

I hold my breath each time that you’re around
But I can’t hold it much longer

I’m gonna drown
I’m gonna drown
I’m gonna drown in the sea of longing for you

It doesn’t make it easier being far away from home
All this rain and cold and I feel so alone
But its nothing external that causes me pain
Its remembering
And wanting to be there again

I hold my breath each time that you’re around
But I can’t hold it much longer

I’m gonna drown
I’m gonna drown
I’m gonna drown in the sea of longing for you
I love to see you but it eats me up inside
You don’t know how many times I went home and I cried
An unreturned loved hurts more than it should
Because it never goes away, it’s etched into the wood

I hold my breath each time that you’re around
But I can’t hold it much longer

I’m gonna drown
I’m gonna drown
I’m gonna drown in the sea of longing for you

Drop in the Bucket

Written By: Becca Smith

A drop in the bucket and the money’s all gone
You work so hard so you can have some fun
The days fly by way too fast
How can you make this moment last

The clock strikes 12, it’s a pumpkin again
Whatever happened to my Mercedes benz

I need more time so I can do more stuff
I want it all but I can’t get enough
A million things running through my brain
I wanna feel the pleasure and I wanna feel the pain

The clock strikes 2 and I’m drunk again
Whatever happened to my no matter when

If you only knew this was your last nite to live
What would you take and what would you give
How would you make the most of these last precious hours
Would you share the secret of your super powers

A drop in the bucket and the money’s all gone
You work so hard so you can have some fun
The days fly by way too fast
How can you make this moment last

The Wrong Lips

Written By: Becca Smith

I didn't know you were waiting outside the door
You caught me kissing a kiss that should have never happened at all
As you drove away and flicked your cigarette
I felt the hugest pain of regret.

Cause your the one that I wanna be kissin, now its your lips that I'm missin....

I kissed the wrong lips last night
It was dark
I was tipsy
and I couldn't see quite right
and as I smelled the fumes of my doom as you dissapeared from view
I thought
I kissed the wrong lips again

Is there anything that I can say to make last night's mistake go away
I can call
I can message and try to explain
but i know I can't erase your pain
Just know you're the one that I wanna be kissn
now its your lips that I'm missin...

I kissed the wrong lips last night
It was dark
I was tipsy
and I couldn't see quite right
and as I smelled the fumes of my doom as you dissapeared from view
I thought
I kissed the wrong lips again

Instrumental

Cause your the one that I wanna be kissin, now its your lips that I'm missin....

I kissed the wrong lips last night
It was dark
I was tipsy
and I couldn't see quite right
and as I smelled the fumes of my doom as you dissapeared from view
I thought
I kissed the wrong lips
I kissed the wrong lips
I kissed the wrong lips again

Beautiful Circumstance

Written By: Becca Smith

We’re heading into someplace new
It’s exactly what we wanted to do
I know if we just believe
We can do what we set out to achieve

Here you are
Somehow you’ve stumbled into this place
You’ve come this far
Now take everything you are and fill this empty space

It seems tonight you’ve made the perfect choice
Remember how good it feels to use your voice
There’s no such thing as destiny
You make it what you want it to be

This is a beautiful circumstance
Whether you chose it
Or whether it happened by chance

Instrumental

We’re heading into someplace new
We’re heading into someplace new
