Message:  Hi Ginny-
Many private/personal sites online that post lyrics simply state "BY... the recording artist". It can be misleading though I doubt intentionally. Unfortunately, many people still assume the singer wrote the song and give little thought to the songwriter.

Both Mark and Tia are officially listed as co-writers on this song, though I have no idea what percentage each holds.
You are correct, Mark is an ASCAP writer and Tia is affiliated with BMI.
Both those sites, by the way, are a good search source when in doubt.
