Erase Me

Original Artist: Ben Folds Five

What was our home,
Paper not stone
A lean-to at most
So when you pulled
Your half away
Gravity won
Like it always does
Did I weight a ton?
Would it be easier
To just delete?
Our pages and the plans we've made

Erase me, so you don't have to face me
Put me in ground and mow the daisies
Ah, the memory,
See how it goes, when you
Erase me,
Erase me,

So what will you do?
With no me for you
I know what we said
What if I left, a thing or two
We know that you don't seem
To think about what you need to
You reached you'll find that you've

Erased me,
What the fuck is this, you're crazy
Turn around in two weeks time, replaced me
Ah, the memory,
Everybody knows how it goes you just
Erase me
Do me like a pro and taze me
Fireworks - poof - it's gone,
New bio, you've gone solo
Drawing mustaches on our wedding photo
Erase me,
Erase me

Erase me, this is not shouting baby
Erase me, gonna call the cops now baby?
Ah, the memory,
Everybody knows 'bout the brand new ho
Erase me,
So you don't have to face me
Erase me,
Option-Command-Escape me
And if you feel nothing
Guess what I'll be.
