Take my hand and lead me up
To Dolores
And leave me out in the street, I guess
It was for us

What are you thinking of, Ashley?
Who are you dreaming of, Ashley?
You come down from above, Ashley

You let me sleep and let me breathe
Where I need to
And fool my heart to think that I
Might have had you

What are you thinking of, Ashley?
Who are you dreaming of, Ashley?
You come down from above, Ashley

Take this hammer-handed heart
And pull it off my back
Heavy on my shoulders
Stranded in the open sea
I wait there hoping that
You'll come back to see me

Ashley...

    General CommentI'll tell you what it means...

    This guy took Ashley out for a date and nothing sparked for her.
    Unrequited love? I think so.


    Dolores park in San Francisco is the best.

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me
    because i knew a girl named Ashley, i thought she was my angel
    then she dumped me =(
    this whole song fits my situation i was in so perfectly
    "And fool my heart to think that I might have had you"

    "Take this hammer-handed heart
    And pull it off my back
    Heavy on my shoulders
    Stranded in the open sea
    I wait there hoping that
    You'll come back to see me"

    i miss her today

    General CommentThis song makes me so sad. I've liked a girl named Ashley for 5 years. Pretty meaningful.

    General CommentI had a pretty different interpretation of this song.
    I don't think the girl he's speaking to is NAMED Ashley.

    A question is asked "Who are you dreaming of?"
    And the girl responds, "Ashley."

    So maybe this girl is preoccupied with someone else or otherwise unavailable (a lesbian perhaps), but still lead him along or giving him some false hope.
    "You let me sleep and let me breathe
    Where I need to
    And fool my heart to think that I
    Might have had you"
