What's Left Of Me

Album: What About Now (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Jon Bon Jovi explained at a press conference in London on January 23, 2013 that the What About Now album documents a "moment in time – a post-first-term Obama, where America was and is." that addresses the economy and unemployment. "There's a little more telling tales with some of the songs," he added. "'What's Left Of Me' talks about people coming out of the economic downturn. Just because companies are going out of business doesn't mean those people aren't able-bodied parts of the workforce."
