The best lyrics of the record come with this next track. "I Remember Everything" is a story more than a song. She starts off the track by listing the things she can never remember. No matter how scatterbrained she is, she can remember everything about her ex. The best lyric is "your favorite song I had never heard, could come on now and I'd know every word." The visual that comes with that line is incredible. Another track with beautiful lyrics is the title track. This is one of the most country tracks on the EP. It depicts the story of a girl living in the rough part of town so she doesn't have to face her ex. They must have had a pretty bad breakup, if she lives in such an unsafe part of town just to avoid him and his friends. The line, "it's like living in a cave with a kitchen sink, that drips all night" is another beautiful visual. It is not easy to find an EP with two songs that give you visuals like these two songs do.
A highlight of the EP is "Music Inside Me". The best vocals of the EP come into play in this track. Drums are the main focus of this track, and they create a solid beat that adds to the catchiness of the song. I think most artists would agree with the message of this song. Mallory is ultimately saying that she was put on this earth to play music and be an artist, and she won't leave without being able to do that. It's an inspiring track, and shows another side of Mallory, the side of her that's truly fallen head over heels for music.
The EP closes with "Used to This". This track is definitely not the strongest track in the record. It's more of a typical country pop song, which Mallory can do much better than. It's a good song, yes, but not nearly as unique as the rest of the songs on the EP. The last piano clinks and guitar ringing does close off the EP nicely, though.
Mallory's EP, Six String that came before this one, was great, and this one is better than that. When Mallory puts out a full length debut album, it is sure to be incredible.
