Lyrics

If it Wasn't For Her

Written By: Daisy Mallory, Aly Cutter, Troy Johnson

If It Wasn't For Her
Daisy Mallory, Aly Cutter, Troy Johnson

I knew when the phone rang
by the look on his face
It was her
When he'd go out with the guys
and stay out all night
Yeah it was her

I guess I should hate her
For everything she did to me
But I can't help but thank her
for taking him away

Chorus
I never would've taken that long drive
Had my radio blaring around midnight
Ran that red light, bumped into you
You never would've said are you okay
We'd of never got soaked in the pouring rain
and that've never been our first date, where love came true
If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't have you

He tried to pretend
That he was just friends
With her
But the empty in his touch
It all added up
It was her

I bet she thinks I just
broke down and fell apart
but I've never been so happy
to have a broken heart

Chorus
I never would've taken that long drive
Had my radio blaring around midnight
Ran that red light, bumped into you
You never would've said are you okay
We'd of never got soaked in the pouring rain
and that've never been our first date, where love came true
If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't have

You, or this smile on my face
The truth, she's to blame

Chorus
I never would've taken that long drive
Had my radio blaring around midnight
Ran that red light, bumped into you
You never would've said are you okay
We'd of never got soaked in the pouring rain
and that've never been our first date, where love came true
If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't have you

Convince Me

Convince Me
Daisy Mallory, Jeff Dayton, Carrie Dayton

Somedays I feel like I've got nothing
I'm just shutting down, kinda like I am right now
Words don't seem to come out right
I'm holding out for nothing, wish I had something

I'm so broken, the cracks are showing
I'm still open to what could be

Chorus:
Convince me, show me that there's more than what I've seen before
I can't let you in, until you show me that you're not the way it's always been
Oh prove me wrong and be the one to convince me

I've seen people fall in love
Then they fall right out again, like it didn't mean a thing to them
I keep thinking that they're wrong
There's a love worth holding onto, just haven't found you

Time is wasting, my heart is waiting
for someone that's worth falling for

Chorus:
Convince me, show me that there's more than what I've seen before
I can't let you in, until you show me that you're not the way it's always been
Oh so prove me wrong and be the one to convince me
Oh convince me

Show me that there's more than what I've seen before
I can't let you in, until you show me that you're not the way it's always been
Oh prove me wrong and be the one to convince me
Convince Me

Upswing

Written By: Daisy Mallory, Bill Shore, Marcia Ramirez

Upswing
By Daisy Mallory, Bill Shore, Marcia Ramirez

I got new strings on this old guitar
A love song I just found in my heart
That I wanna sing

My favorite jeans are fitting just right
Still thinking about that kiss last night
That's a sweet thing

Life don't get
Much better than this

Chorus:
I'm on the upswing
I'm on the upswing now
And I ain't coming down
No I ain't, no I ain't now
I'm on the upswing
I'm on the upswing now
And I ain't coming down

Top laid back and the radio on
barefoot on the gas and I'm gone
down a back road

Leavin behind those yesterdays
They just hurt me anyway
I think I'm on a roll

Life don't get
Much better than this

Chorus:
I'm on the upswing
I'm on the upswing now
And I ain't coming down
No I ain't, no I ain't now
I'm on the upswing
I'm on the upswing now
And I ain't coming down

Bridge:
Ain't nobody gonna break this high
Just stand back and watch me fly

Chorus:
I'm on the upswing
I'm on the upswing now
And I ain't coming down
No I ain't, no I ain't now
I'm on the upswing
I'm on the upswing now
And I ain't coming down

Right Here

Written By: Daisy Mallory, Misty Rae

Right Here

I reach out but you don’t take my hand
I try to and I want to, but I still don’t understand
How I make you laugh and I make you smile
When she’s got you cryin’ but you keep on denyin’ that

Chorus:
I’m right here, where I’ve always been
Standing on the sidelines just waiting
I’m in front of your eyes but in the back of your mind
I must be crazy, believing my own lines
The truth couldn’t be more clear
There ain’t nothing waiting for me, right here

If this is a game, I’m not gonna play just to lose
You’ve had your time to make up my mind, now it’s my turn to choose
And I wanna laugh, and I’m trying to smile
But you got me cryin’ and I keep on denyin' that

Chorus

Oh you can’t even see me leaving
And when you reach out, you’re gonna figure out that

Chorus
I’m not here, where I’ve always been
Standing on the sidelines just waiting
I’m in the front of your mind, and out of your sight
Boy you must be crazy, believing your own lies
The truth couldn’t be more clear
There ain’t nothing waiting for you, right here

You Can't Stay

Written By: Daisy Mallory

It’s hard to fall asleep
with all this pain in my head
I can’t seem to forget
All the things that you said

Well it’s catching up
And I’m breaking down
I wish that you would see what you did to me now

Chorus:
I’m lyin’ awake in the dark
the clock just struck twelve
don’t worry about me
I can get through this all by myself
I won’t let you make me this way
I am stronger than you think
I’ve heard what you have to say
You can’t stay

Take your things and get out
I don’t need you around
when I’m with you I’m not me
without you I can be who I want to be

I am tired of hurting
deep inside
well now it’s your turn
there’s a taxi out front
for your ride

Chorus:
I’m lyin’ awake in the dark
the clock just struck twelve
don’t worry about me
I can get through this all by myself
I won’t let you make me this way
I am stronger than you think
I’ve heard what you have to say
You can’t stay

Bridge:

I am strong, I won’t let you destroy me
I am moving on, say goodbye to that love that you’ll never see

Chorus:
I’m lyin’ awake in the dark
the clock just struck twelve
don’t worry about me
I can get through this all by myself
I won’t let you make me this way
I am stronger than you think
I’ve heard what you have to say
You can’t stay

This Side Of Town

Written By: Daisy Mallory, Troy Johnson

This Side Of Town

The walls are gray, and the front door creaks
It doesn’t get a lot of sun, but the rent is cheap
It’s like living in a cave with a kitchen sink
That drips all night

Mama don’t like me living here in this place
Daddy bought me a gun just in case
Round here the freaks come out and sirens race
When the sun goes down
But your memory can’t reach this side of town

There’s bars on windows, cars up on blocks
A couple houses going up on old vacant lots
I guess I ain’t the only one who needs a renaissance
And a brand new start

Chorus

There just ain’t nothing round here gonna take my mind
Back to that full moon dirt road drive
Down to the lake where we spent all night
In the bed of your truck
No I won’t feel your touch or taste your kiss
Run in to any one of your stupid friends
Cause where I live
You gotta be tough

Chorus
