"Best of Me (What's Left of Me)" as written by Chad Gilbert, Thomas Denney, Jeremy Wade Mckinnon, Andrew Robert Wade, Neil Westfall and Kevin Patrick Skaff....
I traded me in, sold my soul
That's what you wanted
And I gave you the wheel, I gave you control
That's what you wanted

What a letdown letting myself be
Somebody who can't even recognize me
Such a letdown letting it all break down

Hey I have given you the best of me, best of me
I ain't gonna let you take what's left of me, left of me

Said you wanted time, said you needed space
Well you got plenty of it
You went behind my back lied to my face
Like you were above it

Now you're back and you're saying that you're sorry
Didn't know what you were doing when you lost me
Now you're back do you really think its that easy?

Hey I have given you the best of me, best of me
I ain't gonna let you take what's left of me, left of me
Hey I have given you the best of me, best of me
I ain't gonna let you take what's left of me, left of me

What a letdown, what a letdown
Let it breakdown, let it breakdown
What a letdown, what a letdown
Let it breakdown, let it breakdown
What a letdown, what a letdown

I traded me in, sold my soul
That's what you wanted

Hey I have given you the best of me, best of me
I ain't gonna let you take what's left of me, left of me
Hey I have given you the best of me, best of me
I ain't gonna let you take what's left of me, left of me

What a letdown, what a letdown
Let it breakdown, let it breakdown
What a letdown, what a letdown
Let it breakdown, let it breakdown
What a letdown, what a letdown
