Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Erase (1985 Live Tour)

This song was created for Game of Bands round 185 : "80s Music"

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
I wanted to know how to cope with a break up
So I searched through all of the books I could find
Then I found something that I could relate to
It said that not even dying can revive love denied

[Hook]
We used to have these happy days
Let the past be in the past

[Verse 2]
And I want to erase you a hundred times over
It's been years but you're still here tattooed
I'd been unable to find any closure
Removing the stains you left on me is way overdue

[Hook]
We used to have these happy days
Let the past be in the past

[Chorus]
If I can't erase you with an eraser
Wipe off my feelings, or turn back the time
Darling what's left if we both can't take it
All we'll have left is those days gone by
Now there's nothing left, with those days gone,
Bye
If I can't erase you with an eraser-?

[Verse 3]
And I have endured it as long as I could now
And even you told me it wouldn't be fine
With the dawn of this new era I finally know better
I'm wiping our slate clean, you're no longer mine.

[Hook]
We used to have these happy days
Let the past be in the past

[Bridge]
Sometimes
Thoughts of you get me sentimental
Actually
It's only every time I'm breathing
Sometimes
I'll let my tears fall for you
But I'd still tell myself it's alright

[Chorus]
If I can't erase you with an eraser
Wipe off my feelings, or turn back the time
Darling what's left if we both can't take it
All we'll have left is those days gone by
Now there's nothing left, with those days gone,
Bye
If I can't erase you with an eraser?
[Exit]
