"Erase Me" as written by and Benjamin Scott Folds....
What was our home
Paper not stone
A lean to the most
Oh when you pour
You’re half away
Gravity want
Like it always does
Did I wait time
Would it be easier?
To just delete, our pages
And the plans we’ve made

Erase me, so you don’t have to face me
Put me in ground and move the daisies
Ah, the memory, see how it goes, when you
Erase me, erase me

So what will you do?
With no me for you
I know what we said
What if I left, a thing to
We know that you don’t seem
To think about what you need to
You reached you’ll find that you’ve

Erased me, what the fuck is this?
You’re crazy
Turn around and do each time
Replace me
Ah, the memory, everybody knows how it goes
You just erase me
Do me like a pro and taze me
Fireworks puff, it’s gone, amazing
New you’ve gone solo
Growing mustaches all a photo
Erase me, erase me

Aha, aha
Aha, aha

Erase me, this is not shouting baby
Erase me, go on call the cops now baby
Ah, the memory, everybody knows
What the brand new home
Erase me, so you don’t have to face me
Erase me, I’m sure you can never escape me
And if you feel nothing
Guess where I’ll be

    My InterpretationThese lyrics are very off in a number of places, I tried to edit them but I guess it was overridden as well. I added to dand3's addition above so I hope that between the two of us we have these lyrics pretty correct.

    "What was our home?
    Paper, not stone
    A lean-to at most
    And when you pulled your half away
    Gravity won
    Like it always does
    Did I weigh a ton?
    Would it be easier to just delete
    our pages and the plans we made?

    Erase me, so you don't have to face me
    Put me in the ground and mow the daisies
    Ah, the memory, see how it goes
    when you erase me, erase me

    So what will you do
    with no me for you?
    I know what we said
    "What if I left a thing or two?"
    We know that you don't seem
    to think about what you need till
    You reach to find that you've

    Erased me, what the fuck is this?
    You're crazy
    Turned around in two weeks' time
    Replaced me
    Ah, the memory, everybody knows how it goes
    You just erase me
    Do me like a bro and taze me
    Fireworks, poof! It's gone! Amazing!
    New bio, you've gone solo
    Drawing mustaches on our wedding photo
    Erase me, erase me

    Erase me, this is not shouting baby
    Erase me, go and call the cops now baby
    Ah, the memory, everybody knows
    But the brand new hoe
    Erase me, and you'll never have to face me
    Erase me, Option Command Escape Me
    And if you feel nothing
    Guess where we'll be"

    Lyric CorrectionThird line from the end reads "Erase me, I’m sure you can never escape me" it should be:

    "Erase me, option command escape me".

    It is referring to a keyboard shortcut (though it actually opens Force Quit in OS X).

    Lyric CorrectionI tried to edit the lyrics, but apparently they were overridden. This is my interpretation, which is not perfect, but closer in a number of spots.

    Guess what I wanna be?"
