Traduzione e testo della nuova canzone di Ed Sheeran Eraser tratta dal nuovo disco 2017 Divide.

Testo

I was born inside a small town, I’ve lost that state of mind
Learned to sing inside the Lord’s house, but stopped at the age of nine
I forget when I get awards now the wave I had to ride
The paving stones I played upon, they kept me on the grind
So blame it on the pain that blessed me with the life
Friends and family filled with envy when they should be filled with pride
And when the world’s against me is when I really come alive
And everyday that Satan tempts me, I try to take it in my stride
You know that I’ve got whisky with white lines and smoke in my lungs
I think life has got to the point I know without it’s no fun
I need to get in the right mind and clear myself up
Instead, I look in the mirror questioning what I’ve become
I guess it’s a stereotypical day for someone like me
Without a nine-to-five job or an uni degree
To be caught up in the trappings of the industry
They showed me the locked doors I find another use of key
And you’ll see

I’m well aware of certain things that will destroy a man like me
But with that said give me one more, higher
Another one to take the sting away
I am happy on my own, so here I’ll stay
Save your lovin’ arms for a rainy day
And I’ll find comfort in my pain
Eraser

I used to think that nothing could be better than touring the world with my songs
I chased the pictured perfect life, I think they painted it wrong
I think that money is the root of evil and fame is hell
Relationships and hearts you fixed, they break as well
And ain’t nobody wanna see you down in the dumps
Because you’re living your dream, man, this shit should be fun
Please know that I’m not trying to preach like I’m Reverend Run
I beg you, don’t be disappointed with the man I’ve become
Our conversations with my father on the A14
Age twelve telling me I’ve gotta chase those dreams
Now I’m playing for the people, dad, and they know me
With my beat and small guitar wearing the same old jeans
Wembley Stadium crowd two hundred and forty thou
I may have grown up but I hope that Damien’s proud
And to the next generation, inspiration’s allowed
The world may be filled with hate but keep erasing it now
Somehow

I’m well aware of certain things that will befall a man like me
But with that said give me one more, higher
Another one to take the sting away
I am not beyond my own, so here I’ll stay
Save your lovin arms for a rainy day
And I’ll find comfort in my pain
Eraser
And I’ll find comfort in my pain
Eraser
And I’ll find comfort in my pain
Eraser

I woke up this morning lookin’ in the mirror
Thinkin’ to myself that I should probably be thinner
The industry told me to look like them
But I found my happiness in fried food for my dinner
I wish that she could have been my first time
And I wish that I’d never took that first line
And I wish that every word in this verse rhymed
But forgive me if it doesn’t
I wish that I could make peace with my older cousin
I wish he didn’t think that it was me when it wasn’t
I wish I didn’t love it when I’m high and my face feels buzzin’
And the taste stays underneath my tongue
Wish that I had known what to do as a youngling
Wish I hadn’t dropped out of school and missed every single party
With that hardly matters now, man, does it?
Wish I had an answer to everything, but fuck it
I wish creatin’ art didn’t come with a budget
But while we’re on the subject
I wish my private life would have never gone public
But that’s the sacrifice that we make
Spendin’ my whole time high livin’ life away

Singin’ this is how we’re livin’ down here
Sittin’ on the edge, lookin’ out without fear
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don’t care
I wanna see you sing it, put your hands in the air, one wish
I’m singin’ this is how we’re livin’ down here
Sittin’ on the edge, lookin’ out without fear
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don’t care
I wanna see you sing it, put your hands in the air, one wish

I wish my family and friends they stay healthy
I wish that love was a currency and the whole world was wealthy
I found myself late night wishin’ on a star
Everyday I wish I’d never broken a heart, uh
And I wish I’d never run to
Every woman that I loved that kept my life and what it’s come to
I wish I was the role model you looked up to
If I told my fans the things I did they’d say, “Fuck you”
I wish I was home more
I wish my teens could see the kids on the birthdays, but yo, we’re on tour
And I wish I’d grow more, wish I told more
People that I love ’em but it’s in the music that I’m known for
And I wish he never got cancer
And if I smoke a pack a day, well, does that make me a wanker?
Oh yes, I guess it does, and we’re still stressin’ ’cause
Every day this shit gets the best of us
Usin’ my balance on eraser blades
Spendin’ my whole time high wishing life would wait

Singin’ this is how we’re livin’ down here
Sittin’ on the edge, lookin’ out without fear
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don’t care
I wanna see you sing it, put your hands in the air, one wish
I’m singin’ this is how we’re livin’ down here
Sittin’ on the edge, lookin’ out without fear
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don’t care
I wanna see you sing it, put your hands in the air, one wish

I’m using jumpers for goalposts, cigarettes for throat cold
Mum sayin’, “Don’t smoke,” no, I don’t listen, I got
Love for a ghost note, shows on the gold coast
People that I don’t know share the same vision
I find truth in the hard times and words that aren’t mine
Tryin’ to find a love with a compatible star sign
Sometimes I can’t write, sentences can’t rhyme
Starin’ at my notepad quick, I’m tryin’ to find mine
Shit, quick before I hit it again
Surrounded in the industry by all these ignorant men
And who knew that I’d be paid just to pick up a pen
Just let me hit the studio when we can rip it again
I’m a competitive dick, with an adrenaline kick
My daddy told me work hard and you can never be shit
I’ve seen all my heroes dethroned except my dad
Set back here reminiscing ’bout the times we had
One wish

Traduzione

Sono nato in una piccola città, ho perso quella mentalità
Ho imparato a cantare nella casa del Signore, ma mi sono fermato all’età di nove anni
Dimentico quando ottengo premi ora che c’è un’onda da cavalcare
I marciapiedi su cui ho giocato, mi hanno tenuto in riga
Quindi dai pure la colpa al dolore che mi ha benedetto con la vita

Gli amici e la famiglia sono colmi di invidia quando quando dovrebbero essere pieni d’orgoglio
Ed è quando il mondo è contro di me che mi sento più vivo
E ogni volta che Satana mi tenta cerco di prenderlo dalla mia parte
Sai che ho whisky con linee bianche e fumo nei polmoni
Credo che la vita sia arrivata al punto in cui senza non c’è divertimento

Devo mettere in ordine le idee e chiarire le cose
Invece, mi guardo allo specchio domandandomi cosa sono diventato
Credo che sia il più classico dei giorni per quelli come me
Senza un lavoro full time o una laurea
Essere incastrato nelle trappole dell’industria

Mi hanno mostrato porte chiuse, ho trovato un altro modo di usare le chiavi
E tu vedrai

Sono ben consapevole di certe cose che distruggeranno un uomo come me
Ma detto questo dammene un altro, più forte
Un altro per togliermi la spina
Sono felice da solo, quindi io starò qui
Risparmia le tue braccia amorevoli per un giorno di pioggia
E io troverò un conforto nel mio dolore
gomma da cancellare

Ero solito pensare che niente sarebbe stato migliore che girare per il mondo con le mie canzoni
Ho rincorso l’immagine di una vita perfetta, penso che l’abbiano dipinta sbagliata
Penso che i soldi siano la radice del male e che la fama sia l’inferno.
Anche le relazioni e i cuori che sei riuscito a mettere a posto si spezzano
E non c’è nessuno che ti voglia vedere quando sei nella merda

Perché stai vivendo il tuo sogno, ragazzo, questa roba dev’essere divertente
Per favore sappiate che non sto cercando di fare la predica come se fossi il Reverendo Run
Ti prego, non essere deluso per l’uomo che sono diventato
La nostra conversazione con mio padre sulla A14
Quando avevo 12 anni mi diceva che dovevo andare alla ricerca di quei sogni

Ora sto suonando per le persone, papà, e loro mi conoscono
Con il mio beat e una piccola chitarra indossando sempre gli stessi jeans

La folla di Wembley 242
Magari sono cresciuto ma spero che Damien sia orgoglioso
E alla prossima generazione, l’ispirazione è concessa

Il mondo potrebbe anche essere pieno di odio ma continua a cancellarlo ora
in qualche modo

Sono consapevole che certe cose potrebbero distruggere un uomo come me
Ma detto questo dammene un altro, più forte
Un altro per togliermi la spina
Sto bene da solo quindi io starò qui
Risparmia le tue braccia amorevoli per un giorno di pioggia
E io troverò un conforto nel mio dolore
Gomma da cancellare
E troverò conforto nel mio dolore
Gomma da cancellare
E troverò conforto nel mio dolore
Gomma da cancellare
