Eraser
Ed Sheeran Lyrics


I was born inside a small town, I 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
I 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
Show 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 pictured 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's 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 lovin' 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

Welcome to the new show
I guess you know I've been away
But where I'm heading, who knows
But my heart will stay the same
Welcome to the new show
I guess you know I've been away
But where I'm heading, who knows
My pain, eraser

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
And I'll find comfort in my pain,eraser

[Verse 1] 0:10 0:01
I was born inside a small town,
I 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 pavin' stones I played upon,
That 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 every day that Satan tempts me,
I try to take it in my stride
You know that I've got whisky
With white lies, 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
Questionin' what I've become
Guess it's a stereotypical day
For someone like me
Without a nine-to-five job or a uni degree
To be caught up in the trappings
Of the industry
Show me the locked doors,
I'll find another use for the key
And you'll see

[Pre-Chorus] 0:56
I'm well aware of certain things
That can destroy a man like me
But with that said give me one more, I am

[Chorus] 1:08
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


[Verse 2] 1:29
I used to think that nothing could be better than tourin' the world with my songs
I chased the pictured perfect life,
I think they painted it wrong
I think that money is the root of all 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 livin' your dream, man,
This shit should be fun
Please know that I'm not tryna preach
Like I'm Reverend Run
I beg you, don't be disappointed
With the man I've become
Our onversations with my father on the A14
Age twelve tellin' me
I've gotta chase those dreams
Now I'm playin' for the people,
Dad, and they know me
With my beaten small guitar,
Wearin' the same old jeans
Wembley Stadium crowd's
Two-hundred-and-forty-thou'
I may have grown up,
But I hope that Damian's proud
And to the next generation,
Inspiration's allowed
The world may be filled with hate,
But keep erasin' it now
Somehow

[Pre-Chorus] 2:16
I'm well aware of certain things
That will befall a man like me
But with that said give me one more

[Chorus] 2:28
I am... another one to take the sting away
Oh, I am happy on my own, so here I'll stay
Well, save your lovin' 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

[Bridge] 3:00
Welcome to the new show
I guess you know I've been away
But where I'm headin', who knows?
But my heart will stay the same
Welcome to the new show
I guess you know I've been away
But where I'm headin', who knows?
My pain eraser

[Chorus] 3:24
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
And I'll find comfort in my pain eraser

I was born inside a small town, I 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, that 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 every day that Satan tempts me, I try to take it in my stride

You know that I’ve got whisky with white lies, 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 a uni degree
To be caught up in the trappings of the industry
Show me the locked doors I’ll find another use for the key, and you’ll see*

I’m well aware of certain things that can destroy a man like me
But with that said give me one more
I am 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

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 route of all evil, and fame is hell
Relationships and hearts you fix, they break as well
And ain’t nobody want to see you down in the dumps
Because you’re living your dream and this 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

Conversations with my father on the A14
*Age 12, telling me I’ve gotta chase those dreams
*Now I’m playing for the people dad and they know me
*With my beaten small guitar, wearing the same old jeans
*Wembley stadium crowds, two hundred and forty thou
I may have grown up but I hope that Damian’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
I am, another one to take the sting away
Oh I am happy on my own so here I’ll stay
Well 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

Welcome to the new show
I guess you know I’ve been away
Where I'm heading who knows
My heart will stay the same

Welcome to the new show
I guess you know I’ve been away
Where I'm heading who knows
My pain eraser
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
And I’ll find comfort in my pain eraser

Dear Ed, I believe all your singing and song writing were never about the money. You have given more faith, hope and comfort to people than any preacher I know. And you've poured more of your heart into your songs than there was in any sermon I have heared.
Keep it up. A revolution is coming!

ben

yes I agree

Veronica M

yes has Ed said it isn't all about the money but getting people getting to hear his music.Ed really loves performing live at this concerts, and entertaining fans:)

Alex Milne
