Check out the lyrics for “Daisies” below.

Told them your dreams,
and they all started laughing
I guess you’re out of your mind til it actually happens
I’m the small town
One in seven billion
Why can’t it be me
They told me I was out there
Tried to knock me down
Took those sticks and stones
Showed ‘em
I could build a house
They tell me that I’m crazy
But I’ll never
let ‘em
change me
Til they cover me in daisies,
daisies,
daisies

They said I’m going nowhere
Tried to count me out
Took those sticks and stones
Showed ‘em
I could build a house
They tell me that
I’m crazy
But
I’ll never let ‘em
change me
Til they
cover me in daisies,
daisies,
daisies

When did we all stop believing in magic
Why did we put
all our hopes in a box in the attic
I’m the long shot
I’m the Hail Mary
Why can’t it be me
They told me I was out there
Tried to knock me down
Took those sticks and stones
Showed ‘em
I could build a house
They tell me that I’m crazy
But I’ll never let ‘em
change me
Til they cover me
in daisies,
daisies,
daisies

They said I’m going nowhere
Tried to count me out
Took those sticks and stones
Showed ‘em
I could build a house
They tell me that I’m crazy
But
I’ll never let ‘em change me
Til they cover me in daisies,
daisies,
daisies

I’m the
small town
One in seven billion
Why can’t
it be me
They told me I was out there
Tried to knock me down

Took those sticks and stones
Showed ‘em
I could build a house
They tell me that I’m crazy
But I’ll never let ‘em
change me
Til they cover me in daisies,
daisies,
daisies

They said
I’m going nowhere
Tried to count me out
Took those sticks and stones
Showed ‘em
I could build a house
They tell me that I’m crazy
But I’ll never let ‘em
change me
Til they cover me in daisies,
daisies,
daisies

A little about Ava /

SHORT BIO:

Over the past year, 15-year-old singer/songwriter and Broadway alumna Ava Della Pietra has emerged as one of the most promising young artists on the pop scene today. Having established herself on the Broadway stage in the original cast of School of Rock, Ava’s debut single “Christmas Tonight” was named one of the “Best Holiday Songs” of the year by Tiger Beat Magazine, alongside artists like the Jonas Brothers and Liam Payne, and her follow-up single “Optimist” reached #50 on the Top 40 Radio chart, earning praise from American SongwriterJust Jared Jr., and Newsday, who called Ava a “Rising Star.” 

Now, as she gears up for her debut album, Ava has released her most poignant single to-date with “Home,” inspired by the devastating stories of families torn apart on the southern border. Parade Magazine called the song “inspiring,” “empowering,” and a “pop ray of hope,” with “pure pop sensibility, catchy hooks and heartfelt lyrics…inspiring young listeners to feel proactive and empowered.” With lyrics that touch on fear, loneliness, and hope, “Home” is universal anthem for any young person struggling with life’s challenges, as relevant to those on the southern border as to the everyday teen. Parade adds, “Her spot-on vocals and sweet delivery will have you singing along and cheering for the power of open-minded activism.” Proceeds from the single and merchandise will be donated to charities dedicated to reuniting and rehoming children at the southern border.

A multi-instrumentalist who plays piano, bass, guitar, violin, and ukulele, Ava began performing at age four and writing songs at age five. She performed on the national tours of Les Misérables and White Christmas before joining the original cast of Broadway’s School of Rock, and has been featured on Good Morning America, Sesame Street, the Tony Awards, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and more. Ava has performed at the Sundance Film Festival, the Great South Bay Music Festival, the New York Tennis Open, and at Madison Square Garden in front of 20,000 Knicks fans, as well as at My Father’s Place in Roslyn, New York, and in front of a sold-out crowd at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall. Most recently Ava launched “Talking Tunes with Ava Della Pietra,” a new music column with Teen Kid News, where she is reviewing popular hits. Ava was also featured on the soundtrack for Secondhand Lions: A New Musical.
