Ed Sheeran - Eraser (Extended F64 Version) Lyrics




I was born inside a small town, I've lost that state of mind
Learned to sing inside the Lord's house, but stopped at the age of nine
I forget when I get awards now the wave I had to ride
The paving stones I played upon, they kept me on the grind

So blame it on the pain that blessed me with the life
Friends and family filled with envy when they should be filled with pride
And when the world's against me is when I really come alive
And everyday that Satan tempts me, I try to take it in my stride

You know that I've got whisky with white lines and smoke in my lungs
I think life has got to the point I know without it's no fun
I need to get in the right mind and clear myself up
Instead, I look in the mirror questioning what I've become

Guess it's a stereotypical day for someone like me
Without a nine-to-five job or an uni degree
To be caught up in the trappings of the industry
Showed me the locked doors I find another use of key
And you'll see

I'm well aware of certain things that will destroy a man like me
But with that said give me one more, higher
Another one to take the sting away
I am happy on my own, so here I'll stay
Save your lovin' arms for a rainy day
And I'll find comfort in my pain
Eraser

I used to think that nothing could be better than touring the world with my songs
I chased the picture-perfect life, I think they painted it wrong
I think that money is the root of evil and fame is hell
Relationships and hearts you fixed, they break as well

And ain't nobody wanna see you down in the dumps
Because you're living your dream, man, this shit should be fun
Please know that I'm not trying to preach like I'm Reverend Run
I beg you, don't be disappointed with the man I've become

Our conversations with my father on the A14
Age twelve telling me I've gotta chase those dreams
Now I'm playing for the people, dad, and they know me
With my beat and small guitar wearing the same old jeans

Wembley Stadium crowd two hundred and forty thou
I may have grown up but I hope that Damien's proud
And to the next generation, inspiration's allowed
The world may be filled with hate but keep erasing it now
Somehow

I'm well aware of certain things that will befall a man like me
But with that said give me one more, higher
Another one to take the sting away
I am happy on my own, so here I'll stay
Save your loving arms for a rainy day
And I'll find comfort in my pain
Eraser
And I'll find comfort in my pain
Eraser
And I'll find comfort in my pain
Eraser

I woke up this morning lookin' in the mirror
Thinkin' to myself that I should probably be thinner
The industry told me to look like them
But I found my happiness in fried food for my dinner

I wish that she could have been my first time
And I wish that I'd never took that first line
And I wish that every word in this verse rhymed
But forgive me if it doesn't
I wish that I could make peace with my older cousin
I wish he didn't think that it was me when it wasn't
I wish I didn't love it when I'm high and my face feels buzzin'
And the taste stays underneath my tongue,
And wish that I had known what to do as a younging
Wish I hadn't dropped out of school and missed every single party
With that hardly matters now, man, does it?
Wish I had an answer to everything, but fuck it
I wish creatin' art didn't come with a budget
But while we're on the subject
I wish my private life would have never gone public
But that's the sacrifice that we make
Spendin' my whole time high livin' life away

I'm singin' this is how we're livin' down here
Sittin' on the edge, lookin' out without fear
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don't care
I wanna see you sing it, put your hands in the air, one wish

I'm singin' this is how we're livin' down here
Sittin' on the edge, lookin' out without fear
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don't care
I wanna see you sing it, put your hands in the air, one wish

I wish my family and friends they stay healthy
I wish that love was a currency and the whole world was wealthy
I found myself late night wishin' on a star
Everyday I wish I'd never broken a heart, uh

And I wish I'd never run through
Every woman that I loved that kept my life and what it's come to
I wish I was the role model you looked up to
If I told my fans the things I did they'd say, "Fuck you"

I wish I was home more
I wish my team could see their kids on their birthdays, but yo, we're on tour
And I wish I'd grow more, wish I told more
People that I love 'em but it's in the music that I'm known for

And I wish he never got cancer
And if I smoke a pack a day, well, does that make me a wanker?
Well, yes, I guess it does, and we're still stressin' 'cause
Every day this shit gets the best of us

Usin' my balance on eraser blades
Spendin' my whole time high wishing life would wait

I'm singin' this is how we're livin' down here
Sittin' on the edge, lookin' out without fear
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don't care
I wanna see you sing it, put your hands in the air, one wish

I'm singin' this is how we're livin' down here
Sittin' on the edge, lookin' out without fear
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don't care
I wanna see you sing it, put your hands in the air, one wish

I'm using jumpers for goalposts, cigarettes for throat cold
Mum sayin', "Don't smoke," no, I don't listen, I got
Love for a ghost note, shows on the gold coast
People that I don't know share the same vision
I find truth in the hard times and words that aren't mine
Tryin' to find a love with a compatible star sign

Sometimes I can't write, sentences can't rhyme
Starin' at my notepad quick, I'm tryin' to find mine
Shit quick before I hit it again
Surrounded in the industry by all these ignorant men

And who knew that I'd be paid just to pick up a pen
Just let me hit the studio when we can rip it again
I'm a competitive dick with an adrenaline kick
My daddy told me work hard and you can never be shit

I've seen all my heroes dethroned except my dad
Sat back here reminiscing 'bout the times we had
One wish

  4. Olivia Petrus

    This is what I'd die for

  5. Olivia Petrus

    I've seen all my heroes dethroned except my dad... one wish

  6. NO_ONe

    Still one of my favourites

  7. Olivia Petrus

  12. Alena Sagalovsky

    this is art in every aspect

  13. BlueBabyDaddy sings

    ED SHEERAN !!!

  14. astrid haz fun

    He gets that money is NOTHING...

  15. astrid haz fun

    "I'll save your loving arms for a rainy day" OK so does he work on rainy days??? I wonder if he's talking to his wife when he says that. So?? What's that mean

    Veronica M

    "
    [Chorus]
    Another one to take the sting away
    I am happy on my own, so here I'll stay
    Save your lovin' arms for a rainy day
    And I'll find comfort in my pain eraser"

    Ed sings Take me into your loving arms in his love song Thinking out loud, this part of eraser sounds more like after a break up, and a having a drink to ease the pain.
    Although to save something for a rainy day means to set aside something with the idea of using it sometime in the future when it is needed

  16. kun zhang

    Listen to this on 2x speed

  17. Caleb Forsythe

    That 4th verse he used on Big Narstie's Hello Hi 2

    Veronica M

    Ed gave up smoking 2 years ago :)

    vijant1

    Veronica M I’m so glad to hear that

  31. Ankit Swarnakar

    Ed is a fucking musical genius and this song proves it.

  32. Veronica M

    Reverend Run who Ed mentioned in Eraser, once gave Ed a shout out on twitter in 2017 after the song was released lol Rev. Run or DJ Run, is one of the founding members of the influential hip hop group Run–D.M.C. He is also a practicing minister, known as Reverend Run

  33. Tuğrul

    english is not my main language and i thought it was razor blades but thats eraser blades, what does that mean

    Tuğrul

    i wonder how can i translate eraser blades to turkish but um... i think you cant help right lol

    Veronica M

    @Tuğrul Ed isn't talking about razor blades here, as in cutting himself, but with his English accent and how they pronounce eraser, it can sound like e-razor. Eraser is a rubber in america, it's to remove, erase, or to rub out. It's a bit of word play on Ed's part.
    Ed also mentions "Tried to make the cut like the paper with a razor blade" in his rap song 'Take it Back',
    plus for his song 'What Do I Know?'
    "You know we are made up of love and hate
    But both of them are balanced on a razor blade"

    Tuğrul

    @Veronica M i think i got it

    Tuğrul

    u are a hero

    Tuğrul

    oh sorry, heroine then

  34. Freed

    I love his songs, but i dont really know about that 3rd verse. Listen to such a raw story about him makes me feel like i look to things i shouldnt. Like its too private. But maybe thats why this amazing ver didnt make it to the album

  35. Ramona Maria

    OMG 😍😍😍 YOU INSPIRE ME AS MUSICIAN SO SO MUCH WITH THIS AWESOME SONG 😍🙏 YOU CAN BE SO PROUD OF YOU🙏🙏🙏🙏

  36. Lubgkate

  56. jamie Maclean123

    It’s a fucking travesty that you can’t get this on Spotify or iTunes

  60. Sumukh

    Greatest song

  61. María José

    OMG! I LOVE THIS SONG!
    I'm a spanish fan <3

  62. Jan Dudiňák

    "I wish that love was a currency and everyone was wealthy." <3 I totally love that line! It is so deep.

  63. Ahri

    1:13 he was hyping me up for the "hiyah" and then it was super soft

  64. Edward Cotty

    Also followed Ed since the acoustic SBTV vids ;)

  65. Yanni Triantafilles

    Its much more personal than the album version which makes it sound more like a human with talent than a superstar.

  66. PeaceForKings

    Did anyone else here the guy say "One take" at the end? That's Ed for ya.

  67. King Kim

    His words cut hearts💔

  68. kato

    I wish this version had one more chorus thrown in to break up the last verses. Other than that it's perfect and far better than overproduced, cut down album version.

  69. Jhully Marangoni

    "one take" "cool"

  70. jf H

    Did he freestyle, that really taste like Eminem👍

  71. Kamal Kishore

    you deserve billion likes..

  72. Sheerio Styles

    I really can relate to the extended part. Every single word 💯

  73. Huy Phan Hoàng

    Just wish I can find the censored words

    GooferDusty

    it's cocaine

  74. Willz __

    This is almost as bad as his appearance in GOT.

  75. D Bo

    He really needs the looper for this! Sounds boring and bland compared to the album version... FYI also my favorite song on the album.

    Veronica M

    Ed loops it at his concerts

  76. steven goulding

    Big up sbtv just proves what some ginger guy from the uk is capable of

  77. Ioan Bida

    =))))))

  78. Vinícius Lourenço

    eu gozo vendo isso

  79. Trag Tragedy

    Best version is the one he did during his breakfast club interview

    Frank

    Yeah man he killed that one!

    Veronica M

    @Frank it would have been better if he hadn't been interrupted halfway through, although that was kind of funny

  80. Kumbukani Kamanga

    2:22 that ayyyy ayye, gets me every time

  81. Gabriela Jung

    Caralho Ed Sheeran...

  82. Carolina Alvarez

    El sabado en vivo viejaaaaaa
