"Ain't Much Left of Me" as written by and Charles Turner Charles Gray....
Well my fall from grace was a sight to see
Good turned to bad and bad turned to misery
I found out what it is and what it's not
And all I ask for sure ain't what I got,no

Well I've been rained on, rode hard and put up wet
Danced with the devil 'till I'm in debt
Took all I got and there ain't much left of me
I've been knocked down, drug out and left for dead
Barely held together by a few old threads
And I'm still here there ain't much left to see,no
Well I'm still holding on and there ain't much left of me

Thought that I hit bottom but I ain't there yet
'Cause you'd be surprised of how low a man can get
I watched stolen dreams slip through my hands
And now I'm getting out of here still while I still can

Well I've been rained on, rode hard and put up wet
Danced with the devil 'till I'm in debt
Took all I got and there ain't much left of me
I've been knocked down, drug out and left for dead
Barely held together by a few old threads
And I'm still here there ain't much left to see,no
Well I'm still holding on and there ain't much left of me
That's right

Well my fall from grace was a sight to see
Nobody even cared what became of me
Do I have to get down on my knees
And ask the Lord ,Lord have mercy on me

Well I've been rained on, rode hard and put up wet
Danced with the devil 'till I'm in debt
Took all I got and there ain't much left of me
I've been knocked down, drug out and left for dead
Barely held together by a few old threads
And I'm still here there ain't much left to see,no
Well I'm still holding on and there ain't much left of me
There ain't much left of me
I said there ain't much left of me,no
Yeah well there ain't much left of me

    General CommentI write this 1 year after losing my wife to divorce and my son to an unexpected death.

    "Well my fall from grace was a site to see"

    Yeah, that was me, and I can't tell you how many times I've prayed for mercy.

    I got married, had a child and was on top of the world. I had the career, money, house, etc. Then "good turned to bad and bad turned to misery". I lost it all due to forces I have yet to understand. Onset of mental illness in your partner is terrifying. Left me with my own depression and PTSD (due to my son's death). And there really isn't much left of the pre-March 2015 me. But I am still holding on.

    And yeah, I sure as fuck "found out what it is and what it's not". The perspective I have now compared to 16 months ago is amazing. Talk about not sweating the small stuff..

    P.S -

    If I wrote the song I would change the lyric:

    "Barely held together by a few old threads"

    to

    "Barely held together by a few old friends"

    I couldn't have made it through this time without my people.
