"Erase Me" as written by James Gregery Scheffer, Kanye Omari West, Frank Romano and Scott (kid Cudi) Mescudi....
She said I don't spend time like I really should
She said she don't know me, anymore
I think she hates me deep down, I know she does
She wants to erase me, hm

A couple days no talking, I seen my baby
And this what she tells me

She said
I keep on running, keep on running
And nothing works
I can't get away from you, no
I keep on ducking, keep on ducking
And nothing helps
I can't stop missing you, yeah

It's like I'm her new nightmare, she ain't escapin'
It makes me feel a bit complete, yeah
Knowing someone you love don't feel the same way about ya
Memories they soon delete, hm

A couple weeks no talking, I seen my baby
I've missed you so damn much, hey
I wish we could start over, I told my baby
This what this bitch tells me, she said

I keep on running, keep on running
And nothing works
I can't get away from you, no
I keep on ducking, keep on ducking
And nothing helps
I can't stop missing you, yeah

'Cause I'm in the magazines
On the T-V
No matter where you are you might hear me
I'm in the magazines
On the T-V
No matter where you go you might see me

Uh, I'm Yeezy
She said Hi I'm Aria,
No! You an angel you wave hi to Aaliyah
I got a show in Korea
They built a new arena
Why don't you come watch nigga tear the whole scene up
I know I've seen you before
But don't know where I've seen ya
Oh I remember now,
It's something I that I dreamed of
Don C said she cool
But don't let her f-ck ya cream up
Monica Lewinsky on ya dress take ya to the cleaners
Sure enough a week later I'm in extra love
And everybody know she mine so she extra plug
Every bouncer every club show her extra love
We just praying the new fame don't get the best of us
But all good things gotta come to an end-a
She let it go to her head, no not my Aria
The height of her shopping was writers blocking me
I couldn't get my shit out any way, I hope you die Aria

I keep on running, keep on running
And nothing works
I can't get away from you, no
I keep on ducking, keep on ducking you
Nothing helps
I can't stop missing you, yeah

    General CommentiWilkesx, I think that may be part of it but the song is mainly about break-ups.

    The girl in the relationship complains about things and breaks up with the guy. Then after a couple of days the girl realizes she messed up breaking up with him. She "can't stop missing [him]". However, she disappointed him and "it makes [him] feel a bit complete" that he's able to break her heart like she did to him. Then ironically after a couple more weeks he begins to realize he misses her, and "wishes [they] could start over". However, she's moved on. Then they can't stop seeing each other and it's torcherous.

    That's how I see it atleast. Perhaps it's a bit literal, but it seems simple enough.

    General CommentIn Kanyes verse, the girls name is Aria, not Maria.

    hence the last line, "I hope you die Aria!"


    But yeah the meaning is quite clear and self explanatory.

    Great song

    General CommentI'm kinda addicted to this song right now.. isn't there such a big difference between Kanye's lyrics and Cudi's? Cudi's stuff is a whole lot lighter than Kanye's

    General Commentthe diarreah part is play on words, he couldn't get his "shit" out, so he hopes she diarreahs meaning he hopes she hurts worse than he does, as well as "I hope you die Aria" or whatever her name is.

    General CommentCudi's part is pretty simple: Slowly realizing that as time changed your significant other has as well. "She said she don't know me, anymore.". Since love is such a strong feeling, and they no longer have love for each other, they give the opposite strong feeling back. "I think she hates me deep down, I know she does." They part their ways, he's left heartbroken. Than she comes back saying "I can't stop missing you." Which by then he moved on but enjoys knowing she got hurt too "it makes me feel a bit complete." He has some advice that she will move on like he did "Knowing someone you love don't feel the same way about ya. Memories, they soon delete."

    Kanyes part: Play on words. Aaliyah=rnb artist who passed away. "Don C says she cool, but don't let her fuck ya cream up.
    Monica Lewinsky on the jet, she take you to the cleaners." Lewinsky the lady who had the scandal with bill clinton. So possibly meaning he shouldn't be with this young lady but he is comforting her saying they're scandal is "Clean" compared to Monica's. The love just like in cudi's part is dying "but all good things gotta come to an end.She let it go to her head." (enjoying the luxuraries of money but he assures her HE provided her with it all "No, that mine, 'ria."-ria is a nickname for maRIA) and THE BEST PART OF THE SONG "height of her shopping was writer's blocking me.I couldn't get my shit out anyway, I hope you die, 'ria." He is telling her to fuck off and die. So he can get his shit(music) out like "diarrhea". haha.

    General CommentLove this song. I've just come out of a relationship and it is exactly like how it is in the song. She wants to erase me, to pretend I don't exist so she doesn't have feel the pain of missing me.
