Track Name: Erased
If I could travel back in time
When we were younger
When nothing mattered like
Everyday would be the summer

But winter’s passin by
And I saw you feeling hunger
Staring at the sky
Wonder if I’d speak or utter

a word when you were last alive
keeping from your mother
you were reaching for another
to ease you from the thunder

when she’d beat you till she black your eyes
leave you blood covered
but I never even asked you why
your legs seem discolored

If I could travel back in time
I wouldn’t change you
I’d make your asinine
father come and face the truth
You’d never have to fly
solo hangin with my crew
or see you sad and cry from the
shameful abuse

If I could travel back in time
erase your pain too
If I had to sacrifice
Everything to save you,
just to keep you at my side
then you could’ve stayed in school
Lookin for that half a smile
Even when your days are blue

It doesn’t have to be like this
wishin I ain’t got to make a wish, no
It doesn’t have to be like this
Dreamin of a life that you never even lived, no

Send me back and change everything
I should’ve held your hand every step of the way, oh
You got me, you got me
Let me be the one to erase those days

I’d look to check if you were lonely
Cook you breakfast every morning
Work so I could never let you worry
Write a new book, and erase regretful stories

Finish paragraphs that were forming
Sit and laugh, you couldn’t bore me
I ain’t ashamed of reassuring - I’m more than
Willing to show the world, everything you’re deserving

It doesn’t have to be like this
wishin I ain’t got to make a wish, no
It doesn’t have to be like this
Dreamin of a life that you never even lived, no

Send me back and change everything
I should’ve held your hand every step of the way, oh
You got me, you got me
Let me be the one to erase those days

As a child, I just wanted to be a hero
The revival, start the cycle, but I’m confronting all my fear though
when my peers go and appear so low, they sneer at the weirdo
I see your tears flow, but they don’t know what I’m here for

I’m here to make it aware that you were never a burden
Someone who was there, to share, who would care if you were hurtin
More certain and assertive than who you were first with
I’d give the curtains to any person who would dare to be murderous

yeah I’m stupid right, even if you chose to stay with him
I’d still watch you live life, grow old and raise your kids
And when you die, I’d rewind, and then I play it all again
But not erase a single time for the sake of your happiness

If I could travel back in time
I would erase it

It doesn’t have to be like this
wishin I ain’t got to make a wish, no
It doesn’t have to be like this
Dreamin of a life that you never even lived, no

Send me back and change everything
I should’ve held your hand every step of the way, oh
You got me, you got me
Let me be the one to erase those days

Let me be the one to erase those days

Even if I had to erase my days
