Latin influence with the punch of a Mariachi-style trumpet accents this positive song about a woman who refuses to buckle after a bad relationship!
Bad or mismatched relationships have happened to most of us, and there comes a moment when it dawns on you that not being valued is one major warning sign. "Jumping in the pool of love, I landed on cement" the singer admits in first verse. Instead of angry or tearful lyrics, this song is pragmatic about moving on, declaring the self-worth statement, "Any girl deserves better, and I’ll love again". The Hispanic flavor comes from the Flamenco-style strumming for the guitar and the Mariachi-style trumpet accents. As for the cover photo, Paige is NOT with the "next guy to come along" — she’s driving her Uncle Charles' boat while on vacation with a good girlfriend!
I Won't Fall Apart

1. I worked so hard for the way the relationship went
But, you, you weren’t trying at all
Jumping in the pool of love, I landed on cement
But I will bounce right back and stand up tall!
Chorus: And, I won’t fall apart just because you couldn’t love me
I won’t take your opinion — you’re only one man
No, I won’t fall apart just because you couldn’t love me
Any girl deserves better and I’ll love again
2. It’s hard to let you go — I felt your smile all the way through
And I felt warm arrows from your eyes
But, behind those eyes, you’re not thinking like I do
You’re not feeling, and y’know — you never cry! So, (repeat chorus)
Bridge: Even when you were around, you were always on the phone
You stayed out with your friends and left me all alone
So, (repeat chorus 2x)
