"What's Left Of Me" as written by James Michael, Tobin Joseph Esperance, Jerry Allan Jr. Horton and Jacoby Dakota Shaddix....
Watch my life
Pass me by
In the rear view mirror
Pictures frozen in time
Are becoming clearer
I don't wanna waste another day
Stuck in the shadow of my mistakes

Yeah

'Cause I want you, and I feel you
Crawling underneath my skin
Like a hunger, like a burning
To find a place I've never been
Now I'm broken, and I'm fading
I'm half the man I thought I would be
But you can have what's left of me

I've been dying inside
Little by little
No where to go but going out of my mind
In endless circles
Running from myself until
You gave me a reason for standing still

And I want you, and I feel you
Crawling underneath my skin
Like a hunger, like a burning
To find a place I've never been
Now I'm broken, and I'm fading
I'm half the man I thought I would be
But you can have what's left of me

Falling faster
Barely breathing
Give me something to believe in
Tell me it's not all in my head

Take what's left of this man
Make me whole once a gain

'Cause I want you, and I feel you
Crawling underneath my skin
A hunger like a burning
To find a place I've never been
Now I'm broken, and I'm fading
I'm half the man I thought I would be
You can have all that's left
Yeah, yeah, yeah
What's left of me

I've been dying inside you see
I'm going outta my mind, outta my mind
I'm just running in circles all the time
Will you take what's left?
Will you take what's left?
Will you take what's left?
Just running in circles in my mind
Will you take what's left?
Will you take what's left?
Will you take what's left?
Take what's left of me

    General CommentI don't necessarily think he is saying that he messed up the relationship but he has made mistakes, who hasn't?

    I think that even though there were arguments he still needs her and loves her. But since she's gone he's half the man he thought he'd be. He is still willing to give it another shot though - if she'll take what's left of him.

    I kinda boycotted this song for a while because I had grown tired of Nick and Jessica. But after hearing how much he still loves her I decided to give it a try and i really like it a lot.

    General Commenthm idk i kind of interpreted this song differently...

    to me, it seems like he is all broken because of someone-->jessica, and is describing that he's starting to possibly discover new feelings, but he doesn't know how great of a guy he can be with a new girl since he's so messed up and heartbroken, but she can have what's left of him

    General Commentthis is an awsum song

    i think this deff. has to do with his relaionship with jessica....how he made mistakes and wishes he cud take it all back bcz he misses her and the way things used to be. he's kinda saying he needs her in his life to live....

    General CommentI just have to say that if you change this song to being sung from a girl's point of view... it's my life story... which is why I'm absolutely in love with this song
