Shadows fall on yesterday,
It's like time just slips away.
I'm nothing, darkness follows me.
The dawn it never shows it's 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 can't breathe.
(I can't breathe.)
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.
Yeah, yeah.

You're the strength I need to fight,
You're the reason I still cry.
I'm the moth and you're the light.
Use these 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

    This song is basically describing how alive this girl makes him feel. how he is simply attracted to her. I mean he says "I'm the moth and your the light" usually moths are attracted to light. I find this song simply fantastic :D
