What was our home,
Paper not stone
A lean-to at most
Oh when you pulled
You're half away
Gravity won
Like it always does
Did I wait time
Would it be easier?
To just delete, our pages
And the plans we've made

[Chorus]
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 2 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, amazing
New bio, you've gone solo
Drawing mustaches on our wedding photo
Erase me, erase me

Aaahhhaaa, ahhhaaa,
Aaahhhaaa, ahhhaaa,

Erase me, this is not shouting baby
Erase me, go on call the cops now baby
Ah, the memory, everybody knows
What the brand new home
Erase me, so you don't have to face me
Erase me, I'm sure you can never escape me
And if you feel nothing
Guess where I'll be.
