about

Red & Yellow Salt Lake City, Utah

We capture dinosaurs and train them to cook dinner for us on occasion. But if that career doesn't take off, we've established a three step plan B:

1- Start an epic rock/pop band (check)
2 - Incite revolution
3 - Take over the world

You can help us, Red & Yellow, achieve this dream. Every time you download one of our songs, an orphan gets adopted and a baby seal cheers. Do the right thing.

Track Name: All The Things I Wish You Knew
It's for the best, the way the pieces fall apart
and form a line straying from my heart
just think of all the times I'll never have to say I'm sorry.
These are the lies I tell myself to try to make me feel better
about the days I pictured us together
just think of all the times that I'll retreat to this guitar.

But honestly, I thought we'd be a little more than nothing
I'd settle for the simplest of somethings.
Now I believe you and me was better left at maybe
I used to think, but now I see that all you hold's
the smallest piece of me.

I built a bridge that spanned the oceans and the continents
between us, just to get to you.
But here I am, holding hands with empty shadows in the room.
I wrote a song that summed up all my feelings,
heartfelt words--though I knew you'd never read them
It's entitled "All The Things I Wish You Knew".

But honestly, I thought we'd be a little more than nothing
I'd settle for the simplest of somethings.
Now I believe you and me was better left at maybe
I used to think, but now I see that all you hold's
the smallest piece of me.

Let's take a moment, push rewind
throw back these superficial blinds
Remember lovely conversations filled with empty words
words like I miss you, I need you?
This might sound absurd, but I accidentally started to believe.

Honestly, I thought we'd be a little more than nothing
I was hoping for the simplest of somethings.

Honestly, I thought we'd be a little more than nothing
I'd settle for the simplest of somethings
So I believe you and me was better left at maybe
after all the things that I have seen.

Honestly (x3)

I still believe that you and me was better left
at yes and no and maybe in-between
I used to think, but now I see that all you hold's
the smallest piece of me.
Track Name: Little Moments (feat. Maddie Littell)
Did I ever tell you that the sound I hear every time you speak is the sound it makes when angels breathe?
And I hope to hold you with steady arms, but I'm trembling and I'm falling apart cause I'm holding the whole world.

These are the things I hope we don't forget, these little treasured moments of our lives. Whatever happens between you and me, we'll always have these memories to hold onto, and I hope that you'll want to with me.

It's the simple things that you do to me, it's the way you say good morning, it's the crooked smile between your cheeks.
You're the warmth in every note I sing, you're the rhythm and the melody--you're everything.

These are the things I hope we don't forget, these little treasured moments of our lives. Whatever happens between you and me, we'll always have these memories to hold onto, and I hope that you'll want to with me.

Remember the first time you held my hand? Remember talk we'd have at 3 am? Remember the songs we'd sing, those cheesy lovesick lullabies just to get us by?

Those are the things I hope we don't forget, these precious moments of our lives. Whatever happens between you and me, we'll always have these memories to hold onto, for as long as you want to with me.
Track Name: June (Summer of Last Year)
(Beware of immense cheesiness)

June, summer of last year
we finally hung out for the first time
playing cool and acting dumb
it was the most fun that we'd had in a long time

When we said our goodbyes, I think the sun shined all night.

Months went by, we lived our lives
through taking walks and late night cellphone conversations
and you told me of your ex-best friends
and your parents' impossible expectations

I took both your hands and I put them in mine
and I swore to you, dear, everything will be alright

Cause all the reasons for your letdown and your reasons to give up,
I don't wanna be another one.
I know a thousand other boys have told you they are so in love
but tell me darling is there anyone
who cares about you the way that I do? We'll make it through.

It sounds a little twisted, but I need
precisely your kind of imperfection
you're stubborn and you're gifted,
brilliant with just a bit of misdirection

But when I look at you I know exactly where I want to go.

Cause all the reasons for your heartache and your reasons to give up,
I don't wanna be another one.
Sometimes the voice inside your head, it says you're never good enough
I swear you're better than the best of us.
Don't know what I'd do in life without you, I swear it's true.

I don't know what it is, I don't know why it's happening like this
but say what's on your mind, tell me that it's me
though I know you've got more important things.

But the world could all be crumbling down
and none of it would matter somehow
as long as you're with me, we'll make it by.

P.s. I love you, just so you know.
P.s. I love you, just so you know.
Track Name: Cheesy Lovesick Pop
Your eyes betray your lips, they drain warmth from your fingertips.
Your hand it suffocates, I grip so tightly
I can tell you're done pretending.

I know what you feel, so go on and say it
They say hearts never heal, but sometimes we break them
I'm sorry that I couldn't be what you needed
and I wish things had worked out better between us
but I know what you feel, so go on and say it.

Waking up to new beginnings
Find strength in the hope that there's another out there
Someone that can stop the bleeding
Someone that genuinely cares.

I know what you feel, so go on and say it
I swear I'll be okay, you don't have to fake this
I'm sorry I couldn't be what you needed
and I wish things had worked out better between us
but I know what you feel, so go on and say it.

Like a runaway train coming off of the rails
We throw our hearts on the line where they're destined to fail
We're the victims of ourselves.
And all love that we tried and the ones that have failed
just to do it all again
We'll be our own martyrs, self-betrayal.
Well I can't live that way, so

I know what you feel, so go on and say it
They say hearts never heal, but sometimes we just break them.

I know what you feel, so go on and say it
I swear I'll be okay, you don't have to fake this
and I'm sorry I wasn't all that you wanted
but I'd rather hurt than have you not be honest
so I know what you feel, so go on and say it.
Track Name: Simple Little Thought
Everything I do is wrong--you make it so hard to forget.
Even the lyrics to this song are the best they're ever gonna get
but it don't matter, makes me feel better nonetheless.
The more and more that I look back, the less and less I like it
and I cry cause I know
that through all the sweat, and blood and tears
it's still not good enough for you.

My mind is wrapped around this simple little thought
and you keep pushing it, you keep pushing it.
And all the times I've tried to talk it out; but I can't forget.
But I can't forget right now.

"I'm not giving it my best," I lie again to my own self.
It's not easy I confess, but I don't need your help--I'm just fine.

But no matter what I do, you're always on my mind
no matter how hard that I try, I fall in and out of line.
You're the reason I push myself until there's nothing left,
but you still want more of my time.

My head is caught up in this stupid thought
and you keep pushing it, you keep pushing it.
And all the times I try to talk it out, but I can't forget.
No I can't forget right now.

So tell me what I need to do or tell me how it needs to be.
I know it's trite, but honestly this just hasn't been my week
between you and me.
And I know exactly when you're hiding something
you're transparent.
So don't you lie to me, your distorted fantasies
are so apparent.

And no matter what I do, it's always on my mind
no matter how hard that I try
yeah, even if I died.
Don't know why I push myself until there's nothing left
am I just out of my mind?

My head knows better than my heart
but it keeps pushing me, it keeps pushing me
and all the times I try to talk it out,
but I can't pretend
no, I can't pretend right now.
Track Name: The Start of Something
And I forsake a storybook ending for a chance to start anew.
Afraid, alone, and lost in this moment with the hope that I'll stray to you.
Track Name: The Wars We Wage Against Ourselves
And I so hate waking up cause sometimes our eyes forget the dreams we built and they all fall to dust.

Life's a battlefield sometimes
It merits the wrinkles in our eyes
The pain that keeps us drunk is meant to teach us how to love better, and that's the way we keep our hearts in line.

And I so hate growing old cause things that seemed so clear become the truths we no longer know.

Hope it grips me straight down to the bones
that I will keep in mind these little woes
that they're here for a reason
that time will bring me healing
and all life's little turns--they have a place.
Track Name: Totes Improv'd This
deedlee dum doo da
Track Name: Brick by Beautiful Brick
The biggest cities are never big enough
and the brightest lights are never bright enough for you
but here I sit in this tiny house that's candlelit.

But I swear I'd conquer the whole world if you want it
and then I'd build a rocket
and I'd find the biggest star, tie a rope around it
drag it back to earth...or wherever you are.

I built a city wall around my heart
I vowed to never tear it down.
but you did that all on your own.
you did that all on your own, brick by brick.

Have you ever tasted desperate?
Have you ever wanted anything so much
that you would kill for it and gladly take the consequence?
Have you ever been a train-wreck?
A complete and utter mess?
Well I am dying here.
Would you lay this troubled heart to rest?

Take the biggest hopes and biggest dreams, we'll make a list
and we'll build a summer home with the ones you settle with
We'll build it up brick by brick
We'll build it brick by brick.

Have you ever tasted desperate?
Have you ever wanted anything so much
that you would kill for it--complacent with the consequence?
Have you ever been a train-wreck,
a complete and utter mess?
Well I am dying here.
Would you lay this troubled heart to rest?

Walk you home, say goodnight.
Everything's alright.
Just promise me you'll stay forever
an angel or something of that measure?
cause that's what you are brick for brick
that's what you are brick for brick

Brick by beautiful brick.
