If you could have seen my face
Reflected off
A lone dinner plate

Trying to erase
What can't be erased

If you would have rung my phone
I would have said
I hate being alone

Trying to erase
What can't be erased

If you would drive by now
We could sit
And laugh about how

And try to erase
What can't be erased
What can't be erased.

    General CommentOh man. I've been a massive Grandaddy fan for years and years and years, but only just discovered this song.

    Only just split from my girlfriend too and now sat at my desk at work listening to my ipod trying not to cry!!!

    I don't think the words need much explanation. I just can't believe I've missed this song for so many years.

    Jason - some people are just destined not to get the recognition they truly deserve.
