"What's Left of Me" as written by Beau Mark Bokan, Eric Lambert, Michael Tyler Frisby, Jared Warth, Matthew James Traynor and Michael Elvis Baskette....
Don't let your eyes ever go shut on me.
I won't let your voice be silenced, silenced

Blood is dripping from my hands
Tell me, Is this what you wanted?
I'm the one that walked away
For me, it's all that I needed
With nowhere to turn I'll find truth

Only with you
What's left of me is yours to keep
What's left of me is yours
Only with you
What's left of me is yours to keep
What's left of me is yours

One last chance for salvation, salvation
See this empty hole inside
Don't let It keep growing deeper
I'm the one who runs away
It's true I'm lost on the outside

With nowhere to turn I'll find truth

Only with you
What's left of me is yours to keep
What's left of me is yours
Only with you
What's left of me is yours to keep
What's left of me is yours
Breathe you in and it's all over now
When my arms open
Breathe you in and it's all over now
When my arms open
Breathe you in I'll breathe you in
Breathe you in I'll breathe you in

I'm drowning,
I'm drowning,
I'm drowning.
Forgive me, forgive me, forgive me.

    General CommentThis song sounds basically like a confessional song:

    "Blood is dripping from my hands, tell me is this what you wanted?"
    This is where the person realizes that they've sinned pretty bad (blood of Christ), feel guitly, and asking God if this is the way things have to be

    "I'm the one who walked away, for me it's all that I needed."
    they're saying that they turned away from God and whatever they did made them realize that they're lost

    "With nowhere to turn I'll find truth"
    When you're at the end of your rope, you'll look anywhere for help. In this case, God

    The chorus is basically saying that the person is giving God everything they have left

    "One last chance for salvation"
    This person feels like they have one more chance to be 'real' with God and not just pretend

    "See this empty hole inside,
don't let it keep growing deeper"
    They feel like something is missing in them, so they ask God to fill it

    "I'm the one who runs away
it's true I'm lost on the outside"
    Apparently they know about God but keep running away

    "Breathe you in and it's all over now, when my arms open"
    They are finally welcoming God into their life

    "I'm drowning, forgive me"
    They're drowning in regret and guilt because they see what they've done and are asking for forgiveness

    That's my interpretation anyway. Sounds good

    My InterpretationI feel like this song is about a guy who made a bad decision with he relationship and realizes what he's done. He didn't know what to do at first. He hurt her and himself in the process and now all he wants is her back, because he realizes she was all he really wanted in the first place, but now it's up to her.

    General Commentasking for forgiveness for wrongs youve done in your life.
    2nd verse brings that meaning out.

    General Commenti always thought this song was about someone who is asking for forgiveness to the girl he hurt and he obviously feels bad about it and hes asking her to take him back "See this empty hole inside,
don't let it keep growing deeper". hes lost without her "I'm drowning, forgive me"
