I have never heard of Ashe until this song came on as part of YouTube's recommendation.
The lyrics are so personal that I was wondering if it was personal experience.
Turns out it was.
I'm not going to repeat what the video at the end is going to tell you, but this talks a lot about her journey and how she came about to write this song about her ex-husband.
Moral of the Story - Ashe
This song is produced by FINNEAS, as in, Billie Eilish's brother.
Side note: I've been identifying music producers/song writers that I vibe with, him and Ryan Tedder seem to be my jam.
Released on Valentine's Day 2019, it got mainstream only when the 2nd film in the "To All the Boys" trilogy featured it... one year later. I only watched the clip at which it was featured, I laughed, I think it's too young for the situation that this track is talking about.
A duet version with One Direction-er Niall Horan was released in June 2020, the 2nd verse is changed from the personal story about painting houses to something more contemporary.
I moved this song into the playlist I made for acceptance.
"Some mistakes get made
that's alright, that's okay
in the end it's better for me,
that's the moral of the story"
I like to think that with her new duet with FINNEAS "Till Forever Falls Apart", she's moved on to a more optimistic portion of her life.
