Ashe earns her career-first Billboard Hot 100 hit with "Moral of the Story," which debuted at No. 71 this week (dated March 7).

Grammy-winning hitmaker Finneas co-wrote and co-produced the track, which was featured in the 2020 Netflix original film To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You.

Check out the lyrics and spellbinding music video below.

So I never really knew you
God I really tried to
Blindsided, addicted
Felt we could really do this
But really I was foolish
Hindsight it's
Obvious

Talking with my lawyer she said
"Where'd you find this guy?"
I said, "Young people fall in love"
"With the wrong people sometimes"

Some mistakes get made
That's alright, that's okay
You can think that you're in love
When you're really just in pain
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 babe

Oh, oh
Oh-ooh-oh
Woo, oh
Oh-ooh

It's funny how a memory
Turns into a bad dream
When running wild turns volatile
Remember how we painted our house?
Just like my grandparents did, so romantic
But we fought the whole time
Should have seen the signs, yeah

Talking with my mother she said
"Where'd you find this guy?"
I said, "Some people fall in love"
"With the wrong people sometimes"

Some mistakes get made
That's alright, that's okay
You can think that you're in love
When you're really just in pain
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 babe

Oh, oh
Oh-ooh-oh
Woo, oh
Oh-ooh-oh
Oh, oh
Oh-ooh-oh
Woo, oh
Oh-ooh

They say it's better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all
That could be a load of sh--
But I just need to tell you all

Some mistakes get made
That's alright, that's okay
You can think that you're in love
When you're really just engaged
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

Some mistakes get made
That's alright, that's okay
You can think that you're in love
When you're really just in pain
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 babe

Oh, oh
Oh-ooh-oh
Woo, oh
Oh-ooh-oh
Oh, oh
Oh-ooh-oh
Woo, oh
Oh-ooh, oh

Oh, oh
Oh-ooh-oh
Woo, oh
Oh-ooh
