about

The debut album from the Reveals -- David Grant (songs, guitars, voice), Christian Perry (bass), Bobby Shaddox (drums, voice), Hans Indigo Spencer (keys, sax, voice).

The Reveals are aptly named. Their songs travel from the mundane to the revelatory in the space of a verse with unrepentant honesty. Inspired by great songwriters like John Lennon, Neil Young, Jeff Buckley, Glenn Hansard, and Jeff Tweedy (to name a few), their songs are rooted in timeless structure and form, a voice (or two) riding a wave of indie grooves, guitars, keys, bari sax, drums and bass.

You can find The Reveals in Porltand, Maine.

Track Name: David Grant and the Reveals - Because Tomorrow
Be - Cause - To - More - Oh Because tomorrow I wanna be here
Be - Cause - To - More - Oh Because tomorrow I wanna be here

Behind this thought every thought you’ve ever known
Beneath this touch every night you’ve been alone
Because you want a love brand new
But It hung in me like it hung in you
Nothing ever comes through on it’s own.

Be - Cause - To - More - Oh Because tomorrow I wanna be here

More — because there’s more I can’t refuse
More - because I’ve got a mind to chose
More - because I hearts are tried
broken in our souls soul-wide
There’s really no good way to say goodbye

If I lay awake tonight
I’m gonna right down every dream
And if the sun comes up I’m gonna show you what I’ve seen

Be - Cause - To - More - Oh Because tomorrow I wanna be here
Be - Cause - To - More - Oh Because tomorrow I wanna be here
Track Name: Hardwired
Don’t think I know what you want
Don’t think I know what you need
But I’ll let you in if you want
Until I get what I need


I push until I slide
Slide behind your eyes
Where the light
Comes shining in
No reason to ask why

Why… why… I’m wired

Chorus

Wired – hard wired
No matter how told or how tired
Wired – hard wired
Gonna go down like I always do

Does this feel like me
Does this feel like you
My mind is gone
My fingers still know what to do

Verse 2
I feel the beat of my hear taking flight
Deep in the groove no heart left to fight
It’s all in the moves now, and you’re in it too now
Cause I’ve got you trained in my sights

You say you don’t know what the pictures mean
But you still find them flashing on your big screen

You say you don’t know if you’re out or in
If you live outside or underneath your own skin

(optional) It’s all the same, if you’re still of if you move
Either way babe we’re all inside the same groove


Once I thought the words we used
Could give and take life
The more I live the more I see
How words are made of lies

So now I’ve given into speed
The faster that I ride
The more I see the picture
Of just how hard we’re wired
Track Name: Smile
I can’t take it she said with a smile
I can’t take it it’s driving me wild
To face the unknown
My mind like a stone
In the moonlight after it rains

Worn smooth by the earth and the sky
Abandoned where rivers ran dry
Beneath the same stars
The journey’s all ours
Where the mountains rise from the plains

And space reaches out beyond end
I consult it like the palm of my hand
To tell me what’s real
And how I should feel
So big it’s almost like
Pain

I can’t take it she said with a smile
I can’t take it it’s
driving me
wild
Track Name: Tell You
I wanna tell you
and by telling you take you all the way
I wanna tell you
But when I do I don’t know what I’ll say

I wanna hold onto the promise
I feel pushing clouds above us in the sky
silent in the morning
in voices without warning til we’re dry

I wanna tell you
but when i do I don’t know what i’ll say
whatever love is
it changes voices everyday

I wanna tell you all the reasons
we’re lost then we’re gone
nothing in the words
or in the shimmer of our voice to carry on
spreading out in darkness
free at last until we reignite at dawn

In this house of time
from our hearts divine
there’s no shelter from the weather

I wanna tell you
and by telling you take you all the way
i wanna tell you
But when I do I don’t know what I’ll say

I wanna hold onto the promise
I feel pushing clouds above us in the sky
Silent in the morning
love you without warning til we’re dry
take the road before us
a song without a chorus or a rhyme

In this house of time
from our hearts divine
there’s no shelter from the weather

Oh…
there’s no shelter from the weather
Track Name: Uncertifiable
It humbles me to be with you
to see you do what you can do
when I know you can see me too
it humbles me to be with you

I could walk a line so carefully
choose my words soberly
but you are like a drink or two
I don’t know what I’m gonna do
It humbles me to be with you

There’s nothing in your eyes that shine we could ever own
you got me on the edge of myself and I’m thinking
If you come with me we’ll both get shown

The safest way to cross the street
the safest way for us to meet
it isn’t what you have in mind
(B7) it comes out different every time

Chorus
Can you trust the undefinable
make a space for the unassignable
can you love the uncertifiable me.

I used to think there was a point
inside my head a certain joint
that turned around a certain wheel
that could tell us what was real

But now I see there is no point
Inside my head I got no joint
Only ghosts passing through
And no one knows what they might do
It humbles me to be with you


If my hand were free I’d make a record on my phone
then we could play it back from the start to the finish
find out how we got so thrown

Chorus

If my hand were free I’d make a record on my phone
then we could play it back from the start to the finish
find out how we got so thrown

Can you love
Take a ride on the unrefined
lay your heart in the undivined

Can you trust the undefinable
make a space for the unassignable
take a ride on the unrefinable
lay your heart in the undivineable
can you love the uncertifiable me.
Track Name: For Everyone
I’d rather be fractured than broken
split in two than opened up for everyone
for everyone

I’d rather give you what’s yours
And hope in time to find the cures for me
for me

I want you
I want you to
Get everything for free
I want you
And I know you want me too
But oh my heart
oh my heart

These days come too soon
I kiss your face I walk my eyes across the room
this same old room

Where nothing sits still
lovers come and go I wonder when we will
As all things will

I want you
I want you to
get everything for free
I want you
And I know you want me too
but oh my heart
oh my heart
Track Name: What They Found
Is this what they found when they turned on the news in the FWW
Is this what they found when they turned on the news
Children at boarders and so many new ways to keep the score
Is this what they found, what they found, when they turned on the news?

I got a friend, she paints in the dark
Paints in the dark til she brings out a spark
In the mourning
It’s a warning

Picking out voices and notes that she found
A song for the throats that were bled on the ground
The whole world receiving
The angels in grieving.

Is this what they found when they turned on the news in the FWW
Is this what they found when they turned on the news
Classrooms kidnapped and so many new ways to keep the score
Is this what they found, what they found, when they turned on the news

Give me a pill and I'll bypass my heart
Bypass my heart but I give up my art
No more crying
No more trying

I'd rather pick up the pieces and notes that I found
A prayer for the throats that were bled on the ground
The angels conceiving
The whole world in grieving

Is this what they found when they turned on the news in the FWW
Is this what they found when they turned on the news
children at boarders and so many new ways to keep the score
Is this what they found, what they found, what they found
The doctors and nurses all dead in the town
When they turned on the news
Is this what they
When they turned on the news
Is this what they
When they turned on the news
Is this what they...
Track Name: Junkie
I’m a junkie
cause I don’t know what else to do
with these arms to pull me through

the long and lonely
take a drink explore the views
paint the sky and spread the news
until it fades to black and blue

And what can you say
don’t starve me with your point of view
cause I know my mind how ‘bout you

Are you so lonely
that you got nothing left to do
but pass me pull me push me through
Baby you’re a junkie too

And I’m … changing my mind
Sharper cleaner harder meaner
I’m … changing my mind
higher lighter looser tighter

I’m a junkie
far ahead or fall behind
trip across this one thin line

between now and never
and ill take never every time
meet me at the firing line
shoot again we’re doing fine

And I’m … changing my mind
Sharper cleaner harder meaner
I’m … changing my mind
higher lighter looser tighter
Track Name: The End
I think I'll change my shirt and go downtown
Give up the thoughts that flash behind my eyes
I know you're out there somewhere I can feel it
And you're gonna be the end of me
You're gonna be the end of me

Dtoo Dtoo Dtoo ...

I want to take the tour with you tonight
Beyond the waves that drive the rising sea
Into every thought you hold too dark to light
Coming after you and me
The end is gonna set us free

Baby now the end is coming fast
When you reach it I'll be there
Nothing in the end is gonna last
When you reach it I'll be there

I'll be there, I'll be there

Dtoo Dtoo Dtoo ...

You say the love you hear will will sing you home
I can't deny the things you feel are true
But someday even love will change it's song
But I'll be there to sing to you
I'll be there to see you through

Baby now the end is coming fast
When you reach it I'll be there
Nothing in the end is gonna last
When you reach it I'll be there

I'll be there, I'll be there

In the end you can't be wrong you can't be right
You can't hold the one that held you close last night
You can't pray your gonna finally see the light
Let go of the hands that squeeze you tight
hide your eyes or turn and face the fight
kiss me one last time... or kiss me one last time
or kiss me last time or...

Dtoo dtoo dtoo...
Track Name: Love Is Real
Love is real - It’s all love
Even when you’ve crossed yourself in pain

Love is real - it’s all love
No matter what you doubt or what you blame

I don’t want to hide
I don’t want to hide
I don’t want to hide

You search for words - you search for signs
To show you that there’s still a way back home

But nothing stands on moving ground
So we all must choose to trust love on our own

(Optional)
I don’t want to hide
I don’t want to hide
I don’t want to hide

I stand beside you sometimes a ghost
Sometimes moving deep within my skin

You ask for love - that’s all we’ve got
But tonight it feels like shadows moving in

I don’t want to hide
I don’t want to hide
I don’t want to hide

I don’t want to fight when it’s good
Cover up when we should
Falter when your heart is in doubt
Or your mind holding out
For something unreal
Somewhere to stand
Afraid to touch down
When there’s nowhere to land

I don’t want to fight when it’s good
Cover up when we should
Falter when your heart is in doubt
Or your mind holding out

I don’t want to fight
For something unreal
It’s love that let’s go
So love can reveal

Oh…

I don’t want to hide

Love is real - it’s all love
