about

DYEL Charleston, South Carolina

“DYEL: Infectious, yet atmospheric, Soda City indie rock trio for people who like bicycles and clouds.” – Thomas Ray.

"DYEL succeeds through unlikely cohesion, balancing somber vocals atop reverb-saturated guitars with syncopated snares and splashy cymbals." Dade Driggers of The Free Times

Track Name: Dust and Bones
Sell your soul, sell your cage, it’s time to go, time to get away
Hey sisters would you pray if god sent me to the grave today, to hell
And oh my brothers would you believe, if i said the afterlife was nothing, it’s hell
Deep breath now take it in, realize your sins and now live with them
Hold me father, hold my weight, you built this home, but we have ran away to hell
And oh mother could you save all your children when we’ve been led astray to hell
Deep breath now take it in, realize your sins and now live with them
And on your last breath, breathe it out and nothing’s left, but dust and bones
Welcome home, into the grave, are you saved
Are you saved, are you saved, are you saved
Track Name: Family
I almost wrote for you an invitation to my wedding day
Just to see where you would be if there at all
Said you’d stand by me said you’d be by my side all right
Give me your heart give me your dark or not
I guess what I fought for was fought against your lips your lies
So how is my baby girl does she ever recognize my voice
The one of the wind where you told her her father was
So that she can be apart so she can have a start
Apart from her daddy apart from me
Apart from daddy is this what you call family
Is this really how you wanted it to be I wonder if you’re still there if you’re still standing
Or are you on all fours by the bedside where I left you begging
I’d take it all back I’d take her with me
So she could be a part so we could have a start
And she’d call me daddy and I’d call you baby or not
Dadadadadada daddy babaabababbaba baby
Track Name: Lovers
I woke up with a whore in my bed in my bed
Yet you still were the only thought in my head in my head
My friend’s so fucked he can’t even play his own songs I wonder what went wrong
My ex is here and she’s going to sing along to every song when we go on when we go
I don’t know if you’re looking for acceptance
I don’t know if you’re wanting more attention
I don’t know if you’re looking for acceptance but you won’t find it here, you won’t find it here
I don’t know if you’re wanting more attention, but you won’t find it here, you won’t find it here
You can’t sleep in her bed
Then she said, she can’t stay in your head
Then I said, you can’t come in our home
Then she said, she’s already broken your bones
I don’t know if you’re looking for acceptance
I don’t know if you’re wanting more attention
I don’t know if you’re looking for acceptance but you won’t find it here, you won’t find it here
I don’t know if you’re wanting more attention, but you won’t find it here, you won’t find it here
You can’t sleep in her bed
Then she said, she can’t stay in your head
Then I said, you can’t come in our home
Then she said, I’m sorry she’s already gone
Track Name: Dark Heart
And I know that you know that I know that you’re still there
And you know that I know that you know that you’re still scared
So I put it out threw it out laid it out on the line for you
So what now who cares who dares say I never loved you
I really do, I really do
So we lay bodies naked, naked to the thought of our souls
We’re dust we’re bones I’m your ribcage you’re still my girl
So I put it out threw it out laid it out on the line for you
But you stepped back stepped down ran wild got lost in a crowd
And I still love you, I still love you
And god spoke he broke my spine my heart became two
One win for him one part left for me and you
But you know I know you know I’ll always be here for you
Scared I stand god is my witness your heart I won’t lose
Cause I still love you, I still love you
I still love, I still love you, I still love, I still love you, I still love
I still love you, I still love, I still love you
Track Name: Summer Time
She said the summer time, it’ll run you dry, when it’s on your mind
She said when the wind blows, she’ll have to go pack her bags and head back home
She said the winter time, it’s so cold, when you have no one to hold
But I will wait, for you, for you, I’ll wait
And you know if I let you go, I will have saved your soul
And you know if I have to go, I will come back real soon
Now the city lights, don’t shine as bright as they, as they once did
And those sacred words that you spoke fell from your lips, you little drunken girl
Now we roam the streets, though it’s fucking cold, I believe this city stole you from me
But I will wait, for you, for you, I’ll wait
And you know if I let you go, I will have saved your soul
And you know if I have to go, I will come back real soon
So I won’t wait for you, for you I won’t wait
And I know you had to let me go, to save your own soul
And I know now that you’re gone, I won’t see you soon at all
Track Name: Run Wild
Don’t cry out your eyes, cause no one is going to be there when they run dry
You don’t deserve to be treated like that, but I’m not coming back
You’re just another girl, another name in a box, another hope that is lost
So you just run, you don’t come back and I won’t love anyone else like that
Don’t cry out your eyes, you’re the one that gave up, you’re the one that lost the love
And you know I don’t deserve to be haunted by your love, you’d think that I’d give up
But I want to hold you, and I want to kiss you, and I want to love you, like I use to
So you just run, you don’t come back and I won’t love anyone else like that
So you just run, you don’t come back and I won’t love anyone else like that
So you just run, you don’t come back and I won’t love anyone else like that
You just run, you just run
Track Name: Twenty
Our kitchen table only had two chairs, I never liked a damn thing you did with your hair
Where are those pictures of us on the Blue Ridge, your heart wasn’t ever in it, not even then
I bet there are five nights you wish you could erase, the night we met, the first time we had sex
The night of my cd release, the night you said you loved me, the night that you left
So look me in the eyes and tell me that you still love me
Look me in the eyes and tell me that you are sorry
Look me in the eyes and tell me I’m a good man
Look me in the eyes and tell me that we never began
Well I was handmade like leather boots, I may show my age, but I’m of good use
I’ll never love you again, you’ll never have beautiful skin
Cause you’re just as ugly as what’s within, I’m just as ugly as what’s within
So look me in the eyes and tell me that you still love me
Look me in the eyes and tell me that you are sorry
Look me in the eyes and tell me I’m a good man
Look me in the eyes and tell me that we never began
Look me in the eyes and tell me that I’m a good man
Look me in the eyes and tell me that we never began
Look me in the eyes and tell me that you are sorry
Look me in the eyes and tell me that you still love me
Track Name: Preacher
The preacher spoke of your soul he said there friends is the door
It’s locked and it’s closed and there is no hope
God he choked when asked to do the unknown
I heard he took your land, I heard he took her hand
Did you feast at all, did you feast at all
And how a born son was to come to save us all
Still we drop bombs, break hearts, and fall
So god I chose, I chose to know the enemy is greater than you
To understand the hard times I’d gone through, and she took another mans hand
See son spoke of another man, see son spoke of another man as daddy
And they left me standing where were you
Where were you, where were you, where were you, where were you
And where were you, where were you, where were you, and where were you
Where were you, where were you, where were you, and where were you
Track Name: Friends
You stole all my friends, I don’t drink with them on the weekends
I guess we never learned about love
You still have all your friends, I don’t see my son on the weekends
I guess we never learned about love
They say you say I was the one
But they say you say that I was wrong
They say you say I was the one
But you say they say we came undone
What is love what is love
Now where are all your friends, I’m still begging the lord to make amends
I guess we never learned about love
Well I guess we never learned
Well I guess we never loved
Well I guess we never lived
We'll never have love or friends love or friends
Love or friends love or friends
