about

“I had some ferns on my patio that were root-bound and chocking to death in their pots. In a last-ditch effort to save them, I bought larger pots and fresh soil, and moved them into the shade. In no time, they were dark green and vibrant and, much to my surprise, very much alive. I was inspired to apply the same time and care to the songs that had been pushing against the inside of my head. ” - Kathy Fisher

It’s been fifteen years, millions of downloads and 8 albums since the duo, Fisher, first made a name for itself by taking the Mp3.com world by storm with their song “I Will Love You”, but they are still very much alive and growing, and their ninth studio album, “3”, is a strong testament to that fact.

If you ask Fisher member, Ron Wasserman, why he started writing a new album, he’ll tell you that he doesn’t remember. But Kathy Fisher has a different story: “I had been spending WAY too much time online, where so many people turn off their brain social filters in a most astounding way! The conversations I was having with people I thought I knew were eye-opening, shocking, heartbreaking, and insightful to an extremely uncomfortable degree! After a few weeks of being engulfed in the maelstrom,
there were so many emotions brewing inside of me that it seemed as though, if I didn’t get them out, my head would explode!”

Fisher took to her small home studio to make rough song demos of those emotions, while Wasserman was down the street in his pro studio scoring for numerous televisions shows. “I would present these ideas a little here and a little there to Ron, usually when I thought he wasn’t too exhausted to digest them. After giving him two or three songs that he didn’t actually hate (laughs), I think it hit him like, ‘Damn, is she doing an album without me?’” Before Kathy knew it, Ron was filling her drop box with song after song after song, and a new album was underway.

Although initially inspired by Kathy’s reaction to online overload, “3” is far from being a one-dimensional response to her ride on the social media crazy train. While you can definitely feel the influence on songs like “We All Fall Down” and Fisher’s powerful cover of Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike”, you turn a corner and find “Home”, written by Kathy to celebrate her sister’s new abode, and the sweet “Come True”, written by Ron for his and Kathy’s son, Aron. Tucked in between those polar opposites of subject matter lie love, loss, yearning, celebrations, endings, new beginnings, confessions, apologies, love letters, and glimpses into the minds of two poignant songwriters who just keep expanding and expanding as artists. Luckily for us, they cannot be contained.

Track Name: Home
This is the place where I want to sit down put my feet up and just breathe out
Paint all the walls the colors of my soul carve my name in the cornerstone
Had a dream of what was “home” Now I’m here and I am home
This is the place where I want to create memories with the ones I love
Smile for the camera and cover the walls with the faces that make me whole
Had a dream of what was “home” Now I’m here and I am home Have a dream to call my own Now it’s real and I am home
Had a dream of what was “home” Now I’m here and I am home Have a dream to call my own Now it’s real and I am home
This is the place where I want to sit down put my feet up and just breathe out

Track Name: Adages
They say there’s someone for everyone every dog has his day
A broken clock is right twice a day
And if you love somebody better let ‘em better let ‘em go And if they ever do come back
to you they’re yours Oooh-Oooh-Oooh...
They say it’s not about winning the race it’s just good to run
But all the nice guys finish last
and the blondes have more fun
But it’s the life within your years
not the years in your life
Ya’ never know until you try and try and try Oooh-Oooh-Oooh...
The creepiest calm always comes before the storm
But all the clouds are lined with silver and hope comes with the dawn
In every single life
-you know a little rain’s gonna’ fall Just be careful what you wish for you might get it all Oooh-Oooh-Oooh...
Ignorance is bliss
Ignorance is such bliss
What you don’t know
What you don’t know can hurt you

Oh the grass is so green on the other side On the other side it’s perfect
It’s perfect
It’s perfect

more than anything
Life was just a dream

Track Name: Come True
It is late at night
the time I can clear my mind and say what I wanna’ say to you
Your smile makes me pure
your laughter, young soul, I feel it whenever I’m next to you
And all of your dreams will come true And all of your dreams will come true That’s all I want for you
Sometimes I turn around and I
can’t believe what gifts I’ve found I
look in your eyes and I see a little bit of me
And I can’t say these things to your face
you’d roll your eyes and say I’m embarrassing but some day these words will mean the world to you
And all of your dreams will come true And all of your dreams will come true That’s all I want
That’s all I want
for you
Track Name: On My Way
In a little while
I’ll be on my way again
In a little while
I’ll be on my way again, yeah
On my way again The past fades away
In a little while
I’ll be running back again
In a little while
I’ll be running back again – yeah
And there were times when I could breathe on my own And there were times
I could breathe on my own
But now that is gone Now that is gone
On my way again The past fades away
Track Name: Aurora
Aurora

Aurora
Aurora

Aurora
Aurora
What can save you now?
As the blood runs through your house
Track Name: Save You
I can see by the way that you move you are lonely
I can tell by the look in your eyes the way you stare
You are looking for love, looking for love looking for someone
to show that they care
to show that they care
I can see you believe that life
has no meaning
I can see you believe
there’s no reason to smile
Oh you look so alone, look so alone look so lonely
‘cause love starves your heart oooh, love starves your heart
Just hold on, just hold on Just hold on
Just hold on, just hold on and I will save you

Track Name: The Only Way I Can Let You Go
I’m selling the ring I had made in your memory don’t need it now
and moving your picture behind the back row of my bookshelf
This is the only way I can let you go This is the only way I could let you go
Freezing inside as I told you goodbye
I held you close
whispered the words I knew you couldn’t hear but you would know
It was the only way I could let you go It was the only way I could let you go
Shaking inside
trying to write my anger down
Singing the words that my heart couldn’t scream until now
This is the only way I can let you go This is the only way I can tell you so
Track Name: Water Guns
Baby you are dying, I can see
but I won’t ever let you go
I count your tears inside my head they scream to me, “Don’t it let it go” Don’t let it go
Ha-a Ha-a
-Ha-a Ha-a
-Ha-a Ha-a –ah-ah-ahhh-ah Ha-a Ha-a
-Ha-a Ha-a
-Ha-a Ha-a –ah-ah-ahhh-ahhhh
We’ve stood at the gates of hell
and shot the fire with water guns
And through the storms got our umbrellas and drew the sun inside each one
We saw the sun
Ha-a Ha-a
-Ha-a Ha-a
-Ha-a Ha-a –ah-ah-ahhh-ah (we saw the sun) Ha-a Ha-a
-Ha-a Ha-a
-Ha-a Ha-a –ah-ah-ahhh-ahhhh
And baby you’re amazing So amazing
Until I take my dying breath I will never let you go
I will never let you go
Ha-ah
Ha-ah
Ha-ah-ah ah-haaa
Track Name: The Last Time
No one on earth
could ever make me, make me feel so loved, so complete
You and you only
The only answer to every reason that I can dream of
The one solution to every problem that makes me crazy
(I was a soul in your hand)
The last time we touched the last time you held me I was a soul in your hand
The last time we met the last time I held you I could see you clearly
Your sky is mine
I walk beneath it, not alone When I call your name
you always answer
And every time I begin to doubt you you give me more love
No hesitation, you come to me when
my heart is beating so hard I cannot breathe
You give me all I need
And this is all I need
The last time we touched the last time you held me my eyes were not opened up
The last time we met the last time I held you I could see you clearly
Track Name: Haiku
In a little while, when I can think
I’ll get out my book, write some poetry Something short and sweet; more red than blue I’ll try to explain how I feel when I’m with you
I’ll write it in Haiku and try to make it rhyme:
When I see your face
Hear the laughter in your eyes My soul comes alive
Spend your life with me; we’ll grow old, stay young Everyone will stare; won’t that be fun?
We will run full speed, long as we can
I will hold you close, cause I’m so in love with you
I wrote you this Haiku to try and make you mine:
When I see your face
Hear the laughter in your eyes My soul comes alive
And we will always be together Will you marry me?
Cause I’m so in love with you
I wrote you this Haiku to try and make you mine:
When I see your face
Hear the laughter in your eyes My soul comes alive
I wrote this haiku and tried to make it rhyme
When I see your face
Here the laughter in your eyes My soul comes alive
Cause I’m so in love with you Cause I’m so in love with you
Track Name: We All Fall Down
Some of our lives
are filled with pain and sorrow Some of our lives have more joy than we deserve
Some of our cups
are dry right to the bottom Some of our cups just seem To overflow
Did we do something wrong and get what we deserved? Did we do something right And heaven smiled?
All I know is that I
am trying hard down here to get it right
But sometimes we all fall down
Some of our dreams
are never gonna’ happen
But some of our dreams will come true like a fairytale
Some of our faith will shatter
and cut us with the pieces
But some of our faith will bring us comfort til the end
Is there someone to blame when we crash to the ground? Is there no one to thank
when we fly high?
I am not letting go
of the straps behind these boots but I know
Sometimes
we all fall down Sometimes
we all fall down
Track Name: Let Go First
You hold the door
for me until I get through
hold my coat for me until it’s time to go hold your breath until
we reach the bottom of a one hundred story apartment building
But when I hold you close you are always the
first one to let go
You hold your cards
so close they melt into your chest
hold a grudge longer than anyone I’ve met
When you know you’re right
you hold your head up high and when you are wrong you hold on to your pride
But when I hold you close you are always the
first one to let go
Hold me like you’ll never let me go and kiss me
like we are one not by blood but by the fire
‘Cause when I hold you close you are always the
first one to let go
Why do you let go? Don’t let go
Track Name: Crazy
The world has gone crazy
grab your children and run away The lead, it is flying
brought to you by the NRA
We are a speck of dust
in the universe’s hands
Deserve to be all gone
so creation can start again, start again
Mmmmm...Start again Mmmmm...Start again Mmmmm...Start again
My brothers and sisters cannot guide me on what to do They’re too busy texting; taking pictures of their food
While the world falls to pieces and our blood runs in the streets And we’re watching TV
while the fire beneath us breathes
Mmmmm...Start again Mmmmm...Start again Mmmmm...Start again
The world has gone crazy
Grab your children and run away
Track Name: Hunger Strike
I don’t mind stealing bread
from the mouths of decadence But I can’t feed on the powerless when my cup’s already overfilled
But it’s
on the table, the fire’s cookin’
And they’re farming babies while slaves are workin’ Blood is on the table, the mouths are choking
And I’m going hungry
I’m going hungry
I don’t mind stealing bread
from the mouths of decadence, But I cannot feed on the powerless when my cup’s already overfilled
But it’s
on the table, the fire’s cookin’
And they’re farming babies, while the slaves all workin’ Blood is on the table, the mouths are choking
And I’m going hungry
I’m going hungry
I’m going hungry
And I’m going hungry
Track Name: Never Forget Me
Like a girl from the sky
I crash down from so high Like a man you catch my fall Like a man so in love
And you will never forget me And I will never forget you And you will never forgive me And I will never forgive you
Late at night is when you are
in my dreams - I am yours
and you don’t know me well yet There’s no mistakes, no regrets
And you will never forget me And I will never forget you And you will never forgive me And I will never forgive you
And I don’t know what I’m feelin’ inside what I’m feelin’ inside
And you don’t know what you’re feelin’ inside what you’re feelin’ inside Do you?
Do you?
And you will never forget me And I will never forget you And you will never forgive me And I will never forgive you
Track Name: That's The Way She Loves
I have angel
saves me from harm She makes the rainbows after the storm
That’s the way she loves That’s the way she loves
And when I’m hurting she loves to cry
Tears of indigo
and violet fill the sky and violet fill the sky
That’s the way she loves That’s the way she loves
She waits to hold me again She waits to hold me again
She flies out the window into the night
slays all my demons gives me her life
That’s the way she loves That’s the way she loves
How she loves to cry for me
Track Name: Hard to Be Her
I found peace in the shadows
of the graves behind my school Faded names and broken angels soothed me when the world was cruel
And it’s so hard to see And it was hard to be her
Packed my bags, left West Virginia Three hundred dollars in my hand Time to go be who I was born to be Knew California would understand
And it’s so hard to see And it’s so hard to be her
Ha-ah-ah-ah-ah
Grace of God and strangers’ kindness carried me to where I am
Now I live beside the ocean
where I find peace in the sand
But it’s still hard to see her And it’s still hard to be her It’s so hard to see her
And it’s still hard to be her...
Track Name: Let Go First - RAW REMIX
You hold the door
for me until I get through
hold my coat for me until it’s time to go hold your breath until
we reach the bottom of a one hundred story apartment building
But when I hold you close you are always the
first one to let go
You hold your cards
so close they melt into your chest
hold a grudge longer than anyone I’ve met
When you know you’re right
you hold your head up high and when you are wrong you hold on to your pride
But when I hold you close you are always the
first one to let go
Hold me like you’ll never let me go and kiss me
like we are one not by blood but by the fire
‘Cause when I hold you close you are always the
first one to let go
Why do you let go? Don’t let go
