Song of the Day #4,415: ‘Pieces’ – Paperwhite

Brooklyn-based siblings Ben and Katie Marshall formed Paperwhite in 2013, with Katie handling songwriting and lead vocals while Ben produces, plays instruments and provides backing vocals.

The duo has released two EPs and a couple of singles, for a grand total of 13 songs, all with the same “dream pop” sound.

The band is named after a flower species (Katie spent some time working as a florist). In 2013, they should have been wary of Amazon’s recently announced Paperwhite Kindle, because neither the band nor the flower stand a chance in Google search results against that puppy.

Ah oh oh
Ah oh oh

Did you know from the second you walked in, I wanted more
And in a minute I’ll be losing all control
You keep me guessing, I’ll keep you close
Time is ticking, and the current makes it hard to resist
It’s un-natural, the way I am lost in this
You asked to meet me and then you insist

Can’t you feel it streaming cross the pulse, it’s magnetic
It pulls me forwards, begging me to fall
And if it’s right, will these pieces fit together?!
Will you and I collide into each other?!

Earth’s still shaking
I have never crossed the line like this before
Yet I won’t waver as I walk across the floor
You were waiting, and I am lost.

Can’t you feel it streaming cross the pulse, it’s magnetic
It pulls me forward, begging me to fall
And if it’s right, will these pieces fit together?!
Will you and I collide into each other?!

Uuuh, tell me
Uuuh, tell me
Uuuh, show me
Uuuh, show me

Uuh, tell me tonight you’re still waiting?
Uuh, tell me? (You need me boy)
Uuh, show me all that I’m forgetting
Uuh, show me who you are.
Uuh, tell me all that??
Uuh, tell me you and I would
Uuh, show me there’s nothing to afraid
Uuh, show me!

And if it’s right, will these pieces fit together?!
That you and I collide into each other?!
And if it’s right, will these pieces fit together?!
Will you and I collide into each other?!

Uuuh, tell me
Uuuh, tell me
Uuuh, show me
Uuuh, show me
