about

Red & Yellow Salt Lake City, Utah

We capture dinosaurs and train them to cook dinner for us on occasion. But we also have a secret three-step agenda:

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 kitten gets adopted and gas prices plummet. Let's save the world together!

Track Name: Paper Heart
I'll probably sketch you in my notebook half a dozen times today
when my thoughts collide with daydreams as my pencil hits the page.
A paper heart that carries your initials next to mine contains
what should have been our future in a tiny graphite frame.

So why'd I let you go? Why'd I let you go?
Now we can't stitch up the seams of what we used to know.

I'm sick and tired of saying I'm sorry
cause sorry's just not good enough
like lemon juice on paper cuts
Watching your tears march like paint-splattered armies
I'm breaking down, I'm giving up
this paper heart is all that's left of love.

I wish I knew the distant somehow to put the curves back in your smile.
My lips can shape the words "I'm sorry" but they can't go back in time.
Now refrigerator magnets hold the remnants of my soul--
this paper heart we cut out from a story long ago.

So why'd I let you go? Why'd I let you go?
Glue can hold the ends, but it can't fill a hole.

I'm sick and tired of saying I'm sorry
cause sorry's just not good enough
to bandage up your paper cuts.
Watching your tears march like paint-splattered armies
your cheeks are wet with giving up
this paper heart is all that's left.

Thumbing through the paragraphs of this fairytale we wrote
now the pages are all torn apart.
Take away the skin and bones and what is left of us?
Only pieces of a paper heart. Only pieces of a paper heart.

I'm sick and tired of saying I'm sorry
cause sorry's just not good enough
like lemon juice on paper cuts.
Watching your tears march like paint-splattered armies
cause I'm so good at screwing up
now this paper heart is all that's left of love.

This paper heart is all that's left of us.
