  55. luveruvmusic says:

    As I listen to this powerhouse of a song, I think of the lyrics and wonderful music that draws me in. The great title. The only artist that comes to my mind is Ashelyn Summers. Bravo!!

  56. wynne11 says:

    beaautiful! fell in the love the first time i heard it <3

  57. Shockinh says:

  58. The first thing that comes to mind when I hear your voice is a combination between Celine Dion and Amy Lee but it’s straight up gorgeous and unique :)

  59. yukanichii says:

    It’s so beautiful… <3

  60. Are you the actual ashelyn summers?
    or you know some sick and twisted person pretending to be someone youre not?
    if youre the real ashelyn summers… i think your awesome!(:

  61. @TheSweetRhyme I don’t think I’m quite famous enough to have impostors yet.

  62. @ashelynsummers I geuss so…. Well when you do get famous i could always say i talked to you on youtube before you were really famous!!

  63. Absolutely love this! :) Beautiful voice!

  64. You have an amazing voice and a great songwriter too! :)

  65. terradoll13 says:

    Only 10,111 views? What is wrong with the world?This song is too beautiful not to be heard. So moving and perfect. This was the first song you wrote? If the first song I wrote sounded this good I would’ve died. It took about 5 to sound good :) Reminds me of Evanescence…love IT

  66. breath taking voice beautiful music!!

  67. You have an amazing voice!! Just as great as evenences! :) I wish had such an amazing voice as you :) sadly i dont :( but since you do you should use it wisefully :) lol anyways i just wated to say

  68. cindyhmoss says:

    This is amazing! =)Sarah

  69. amazing…just amazing..beautiful voice.

  70. Dnp4real says:

    Amazing song + amazing voice = PERFECTION!!!

  71. Beautiful song. I’d love to put some distorted guitar into it. I think it would compliment nicely.

  72. pendragonox2 says:

    Wow I love hearing music like this. There’s just no words to describe it.

  73. @Theshemproductions The introduction is pure piano. The whole piece was recorded on a 1910 Story & Clark upright grand. It’s a beautiful, worn, and unique instrument. A perfect match for the distress of the piece. You can even hear the subtle creak of the pedals if you listen closely enough.

  74. great voice! hope you go far

  75. Darkfire0721 says:

    Beautiful song and one of my favorites.

  76. @david17071966 Thank you :) If you are serious, I would love to hear it!

    P.S. The stems are available for free download on my website. Just go to ashelynsummers . com and navigate to Music > Key To My Heart > Willful Amnesia > Remix

  77. MagicTDS5 says:

    An absolutely, amazing, beautiful, and powerful original,
    sung and written by the absolutely amazing beautiful powerful singer/songwriter, Ashelyn Summers!
    Brilliant, Miss Summers. :)

  78. Always willing to support Indie music

    All these comments clearly say the same, right?

  79. Beautiful. But it says in your profile that you have been compared to Amy Lee. You’re amazing, I’m sorry but not that amazing :| Still good though! I’m not hatin!(:

  80. In my personal opinion, you’re better than Amy Lee, don’t get me wrong I think she’s a great singer but she overdoes it, ALOT, especially on her new cd, she’s just trying too hard. You on the other hand it’s simple and beautiful. I personally love this song and can relate with it very heavily. Keep it up! <3

  81. cebukid70 says:

    Bravo! What a great song and composition on piano. :-)

  82. ronshel302 says:

    wow…beautiful beautiful voice!

  83. @ashelynsummers Yeah I do hear the creak….It gives the true idea of sound in orchestration of music.

  84. you remind me of Evanescence somehow. your amazing :)

  85. You have a beautiful voice. It’s just beautiful and inspiring.

  86. LeonGehste says:

  90. jimsmailbox says:

    Ashelyn, Though I have always been a fan of instruments such as the piano, violyn & chello, I have never been much of a fan of instrumentals . Maybe because I am such a big fan of the female voice. But reguardless, this song & several other Instrumentals you have posted over the last few days has definately broken down that barrier. I’ve really enjoyed them & wanted to post a heartfelt thank you for sharing them with us …….Jim McMillen

She is a very beautiful girl also. The whole package, beauty and voice will surely put this girl on the map. We will be hearing more about her in the future. If I were her I would enter America’s Got Talent. This is so beautiful. Sing on Princess, you are such a charm, what talent, a beautiful bliss.
