Ed Sheeran - Eraser lyrics

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 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 They 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 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 sh** 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 not beyond 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 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 Wish that I had known what to do as a youngling 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 f** 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 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 to 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, "f** you" I wish I was home more I wish my teens could see the kids on the birthdays, but yo, world tour And I wish I'd grow more, wish I told more People that I love 'em but it's in 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 wa*ker? Oh yes, I guess it does, and we're still stressin' 'cause Every day this sh** gets the best of us Usin' my balance on eraser blades Spendin' my whole time high wishing life would wait 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 th *** Thanks Liz for the lyrics
