Erase This is the sixth song on the third self-titled studio album, Evanescence. Its original title was "Vanilla."'

Background and development Edit

Working titles for the song were "Vanilla" and "Sharkfin Backpack". On April 12, 2011, Amy uploaded a video on TwitVid titled "Will Shreds" in which Will plays the last drum part of "Erase This".

In a live Q&A, Amy stated that she started writing this song with Terry around June 2010. She further said that they couldn't come up with a chorus for a song, and Nick Raskulinecz had the idea to combine the verse and chorus from two separate songs together, making "Erase This".

LyricsEdit

It’s too late to change your mind
Even though this fragile world is
Tearing apart at the seams

I can’t wash these sins away
This sinking feeling everyday
I’m waking up in someone else’s life

Is it so hard for you?
‘Cause it’s so hard for me
To believe that what we dream
Could ever come to life again
‘Cause I cannot erase this lie

I’m not gonna let this day go by
I’m gonna save this wasted life
And nothing can stand in my way

Not enough to say goodbye
Burn it 'til there’s nothing left
I'm drowning in the mess that I have made

Is it so hard for you?
‘Cause it’s so hard for me
To believe that what we dream
Could ever come to life again
‘Cause I cannot erase this darkness in me

The water’s rising around us
There is no other way down
I only have myself to blame
For it all, all

Is it so hard for you?
‘Cause it’s so hard for me
To believe that what we dream
Could ever come to life again
If I could just erase my mind
But I cannot erase this lie
