"Ashley" as written by John Feldmann and Unknown Writers....
Shadows fall on yesterday,
Its like time just slips away.
I'm nothing, when darkness follows me.
The dawn, it never shows its head.
I'm left dying here instead with nothing,
A lock without a key.

Like the brightest star you shine through.
Ashley, baby, you make me feel so alive.
I've got purpose once again.
Yeah, yeah.
Ashley, baby, you make me feel so alive.
I've got purpose once again.
Yeah, yeah.
(I've got purpose once again.)

If looks could kill you'd be the one,
That takes my world and makes me numb.
I'm nothing, without you I cant breathe.
(I can't breathe.)
And as the sunlight burns the sky,
I see through my obsessive eyes.
I'm nothing, without you I can't see.

Like the brightest star you shine through.
Ashley, baby, you make me feel so alive.
I've got purpose once again.
Yeah, yeah.
Ashley, baby, you make me feel so alive.
I've got purpose once again.
Yeah, yeah.
(I've got purpose once again.)

Yeah, yeah.

You're the strength I need to find,
You're the reason I still try.
I'm the moth and you're the light.
Give me wings so I can fly,
I can fly.

Ashley, baby, you make me feel so alive.
I've got purpose once again.
Yeah, yeah.
Ashley, baby, you make me feel so alive.
I've got purpose once again.
Yeah, yeah.
Ashley, baby, you make me feel so alive.
I've got purpose once again.
Yeah, yeah.
Yeah, yeah.

I've got purpose once again.
I've got purpose once again

    General CommentWow why is everyone saying that Ronnie has a unique voice, yes it is good but if they wanted a singer that sounded someone like him they should have gotten the singer from I Am Ghost becuase he has a similar voice.
    And I can't believe you guys think Ronnie is better for godsake he was only good in the studio when it came down to live shows his voice would crack and as for his screams and at all that, it isnt all that impressive.
    Everyone bitches about Craig making to many girl songs, well have you heard Ronnies song "Listen Up"?? Its also about a girl that he cant trust... Makes you think if Ronnie is sooooo gooooood at writing lyrics, why is he writing about girls and relationships in his new band.
    As far as the new sound ETF has, it doesn't take one person to change a band, instead it takes a whole band and by the way i dont hear anyone complaining about Omar leaving the band... Shows how much everyone cares about ETF.

    But "This War is Ours" album is good its just people hate it because its different from their old stuff and people have trouble with change... Sooo all those haters need to stop Craig is going to stay with ETF and if you dont like it stop complaining and listen to Ronnies new band and hopefully he'll become the next big thing.


    But yeah this song is amazing its definately about a girl that he loves and he truly cares about. Its self explanatory really.

    General CommentWhattheheck happened there? D:
    sorry for the umm.. triple post.
    I personally don't think ETF are as good as they were when ronnie was in the band.. i mean, they were waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more hardcore back then.. this song, as well as "harder than you know" are two of the many songs that prove that. it's embarrising (dunno how to spell that word, english isn'tmy first language..) that escape the fate made this song.

    General Commentronnie was the shiz, but hes not coming back so move on
    craig is good, but if you like him better than ronnie, you are not a true ETF fan
    ronnie made ETF, and has a unique voice. any other singer could have become the new lead singer if craig set the standard. but ronnie set the bar really high, and that is why so many people hate craig.

    General Commenti personally think its the best on the album because my gf's name is ashley...
    Craig's girlfriend Gabby told me that this song was originally supposed to be 'Gabby' but etf chose ashley because it is a common name and its for the fans.

    General CommentI love it 4 the fact tht my gf's name is ashley as well but ronnie could hav sang it better. but the simple fact is everyone needs to lay off craig i mean honestly i dont think any1 is better than ronnie but he fucked up n now he has to pay the price. And ashleighhaley ronnie wouldnt be sastified because he loves montey way to much to wish anything bad on him
