"What's Left" as written by Bradley Kirk Arnold, Matthew Darrick Roberts, Christopher Lee Henderson and Zachary David Maloy....
A few pictures, two tickets, from a trip we took last year
A handful of memories, some still seem clear
Few regrets, couple melodies, that remind me of you
Well, I could say that I won't miss this
But that wouldn't be the truth

There's no one here to blame and this is the only way
There's nothing left for us, to say

It's time to let you go, it's what we have to do
It's time to give this up, I think that we both knew
There's nothing left to say, there's nothing left to prove
And now it's time to turn and walk away from
What's left of me and you
What's left of me and you

Box of letters, that old t-shirt, still brings me back to you
A few more hours in the day, not sure what I should do
There's no one here to blame, and this is the only way
There's nothing left for us to say

It's time to let you go, it's what we have to do
It's time to give this up, I think that we both knew
There's nothing left to say, there's nothing left to prove
And now it's time to turn and walk away from
What's left of me and you

You were the best thing I'll ever give up
And it's hard to see the truth
When you think you're still in love
The only way to get on with my life
Is to say goodbye, so goodbye

It's time to let you go, it's what we have to do
It's time to give this up, I think that we both knew
There's nothing left to save and nothing left to prove
And now it's time to turn and walk away from
What's left of me and you
Whoa-oh-oh that's left of me and you

A few pictures, two tickets, from a trip we took last year
A handful of memories, some still seem clear

    Song MeaningIt's about a guy reflecting back on a relationship that two people are still desperately trying to cling to - whatever little is left of it. They've said everything to each other to try and save it that could've possibly been said and it still didn't work. ("There's nothing left to say, nothing left to prove"). It's not anyone's fault. It's simply broken.

    Over the course of the time they've been split it up, which is roughly a year, a dying version of their relationship is still fighting for life - from both sides. Clinging desperately to not let the flame burn out completely. But he realizes that in order for them to both actually move on and forward, as excruciating as that may be, they need to cut ties completely and walk away. ("The only way to get on with my life is to say goodbye. So goodbye.")

    It's about recognizing that remaining in the purgatory of a broken relationship prevents them from properly moving on with their lives and they need to say goodbye to what's left. That tiny sliver of their heart that is still holding on is still broken and is preventing them from moving on. ("Now it's time to turn and walk away from what's left of me and you.")

    Trying to put what's left of a relationship out of your misery - as unbelievably hard as that is.

    Lyric CorrectionFew pictures, two tickets, from a trip we took last year
    A hand full of memories, some still seem clear
    Few regrets, couple melodies that remind me of you
    Well I could say that I won't miss this but that wouldn't be the truth

    There's no one here to blame and this is the only way
    And there's nothing left for us to say

    It's time to let you go, it's what we have to do
    It's time to give this up, I think that we both knew
    There's nothing left to say, there's nothing left to prove
    And now it's time to turn and walk away from what's left of me and you.. what's left of me and you

    Box of letters, that old t-shirt, still brings me back to you
    A few more hours in the day, not sure what I should do

    There's no one here to blame and this is the only way
    There's nothing left for us to say

    It's time to let you go, it's what we have to do
    It's time to give this up, I think that we both knew
