Steven Marshall I can't believe no-one really picked up on these two. Just classy pop. Better than around 90% of stuff that actually gets a release. Favorite track: You Pressed The Crash Button.

about

"...Their audio offering, titled I Am, You Are, sets them apart... and is as experimental as it is beautiful." - Jessica Harp, Pegasus News

"...vocalist Jessi James and musical mastermind Blake Panter create a slick, shimmering sonic landscape—one much bigger than the two of them..." - Andy Odom, Dallas Observer

"[a band} they've likely never heard, but should--and soon." - Pete Freedman, Dallas Observer

Track Name: You Pressed The Crash Button
It wasn't long ago
You said to me
that it was done or over
or just beginning

I had long to go
to get where I'd need to be

You pressed the crash button..
on me.

I hadn't much to show
in my little life I'd only gotten so far
I didn't need to know
more than I'd seen in you already.

Thought I'd take a risk
take a dive
but I can't breathe under water.

You pressed that button on me...

Can't begin to thank you
after all believe I know
it was me
it was me

I had long to go
to get where I'd need to be.
Track Name: Mr. Memory
Hello, Mr. Memory
tell me what you think of me.

You are Mr. Memory
when you look in my eyes what do you see?

Do you know
where I come from?
Do you know
where I belong?
Do you know
Do you know about me?

Say, Mr. Memory..
you've yet to learn a thing or two, baby.

I know, Mr. Memory
thought you were safe behind lock and key.

You can't see what's coming behind the curtain
You can't know what's in my pocket, oh no.
turn around and walk away
I'm sorry, Mr. Memory
Track Name: Marnie
Marnie slipped into the dreamery
too soon to fall asleep
oh no

Marnie crawled into the treasury
to find the missing piece

Oh no
Oh no
Oh no
Where did she go?

Marnie got along carelessly
lost crumbs along the beat
oh no

Marnie feel apart so tragically
fell victim of a scheme

Oh no
Oh no
Oh no
Where did she go?

Marnie lost her head
she'd rather be dead, rather be dead
Darling lost the thread
Marnie lost her head
she'd rather be dead

How can you say it's so?
I gave her space to grow

Oh no
Track Name: 1 hr
We'll agree that it can all work out the way we dreamed
We'll agree that it can all work out the way we dreamed

After all sometimes you've just gotta hope
you've gotta hold on
this craziness is allowed for one hour's time
let's get this done in one hour's time
let's get this done in one hour's time

My limitations seem a bit too strict for even me
let's just move on, we move on
let's just forget it

And tonight we'll just stare into each other's eyes
like mumbling fair haired budding lovers
like mumbling fair haired budding lovers
Track Name: Take A Picture
They nod their heads to nothingness
latching onto
whatever meaning they can muster
No meaning at all
just collective togetherness.

You tell me
where to go
I'll go too
I'll follow you

I saw You
I just wanted to know you saw me, too
Take a picture

They chase their hearts they can't hold back
collecting energy from introverts and cigarettes
only purpose of finding just that
whatever that is today

You tell me
where to go
I'll go, too
I'll follow you

I saw you
I just wanted to know you saw me, too
take a picture

let's remember what we forgot
let's remember what we have lost
Track Name: With A Stretch
You believe all I say I can't believe I got away with
I believe all you say you got away with
stretch of text
You believe all you say I can't believe you got away with
I believe all I say I can't believe I got away with
with a stretch

All the weight of the world
is not on my shoulders
When London's bridges fall down
someone else can rebuild them

I never gave up a night
never cried on my pillow
close off myself to the world
I don't know what I don't know

I've thrown away what you meant to say
can't go away
what I mean to say is now
I've gone away
dig my head in deep now
I've gone away
now all I can see is ground
Track Name: Deepest Part
Wake wake wake me a dream's alright
I had a hard time falling asleep last night
the morning light pains my eyes
I should be down dark in my bed this time

Wait wait waiting a page of your life to unfold
have you changed?
tell me the untold
because I wanna know
the deepest part
the deepest part

I've come so far
no, no I can't stop
I've come so far, so far

If you could only
if you could only know
how good it can be
if you could only know
you don't wanna get close

Bang, bang, bang on the keys tune light
refreshing break, breaking my heart
repeat beating
I'm afraid to meet, afraid to believe
what you really think
Track Name: Bound To Forget
Unfortunately I missed it
turned left too soon to quit
I'd turn around, but can't slow down
can't slow down

I'm not made to slip
got my mind set on this
can you believe me?

I can't
I'm believable, but I can't

It's unfortunate, this mess
blindfold these feelings in my chest
I'd turn around, can't look back now
I can't look at this wreck

If I pretend I didn't see
If I can pretend I didn't see
let's forget everything

No need to figure this one out
no need to figure this one out
not this time

It's for you to understand
that I can't change my mind again
I won't change my mind
I am, you are...
Why can't you understand?
that I can't change my mind again
I won't change my mind
I am... you are

I am, you are
bound to forget
Track Name: Just Be
And we'll take it in stride
keep going until we drop, drop drag the weight
of our memories

Ain't got nothing to hide
blue sky clean conscience
we ride, ride the waves of clarity unseen

ooh...
ahh....

Clear a block of my time
can't move
my beating heart rests in clean perfumes
of inactivity

Clean it out of my mind
let's just be
Track Name: Whatevertown
January 1
thought I'd never be
alone again

Said I'd never cry again
never try again
with anyone, but you

Turns out it's alright
but I still blame you
oh I blamed you

Can't afford to buy a ticket to fly away, to get away
so I drive, so I drive
to Whatevertown
so I drive, oh I drive
to Whatevertown

Took a long drive to Whatevertown
long as it was far away
Took a long drive to Whatevertown
long as it was far away
from you.
