What's Left Of Me

Album: What About Now (2013)
  • For thirty hard years I was a newspaperman
    I made my living with a pen and a pad
    God I miss the smell of paper and the ink on my hands

    Been back from the desert for a year or so
    Left more in the sand then you'll ever know
    Another war's waiting for me when I got back home

    In the name of the flags one gave their lives
    I'm still living yeah Semper Fi
    Well that's my story, what else can I say
    Hey hey

    I got a lot to give so can't you see
    I'm still breathing an my heart still beats
    They took the car but they left the lease
    Does anybody want what's left of me

    Boarding up the house they left the keys
    For growing on my city rolled up these streets
    I ain't checking out I still got my dreams
    Does anybody want what's left of me
    Hey hey, hey hey

    They called us dirty Harry, we're a punk rock band
    When it's sold off CBGB's I don't understand
    All that's left now are the t-shirts and the comp' for a good plan

    I sold my drums to make ends meet
    The band broke up, we had to eat
    It's the same old shit, it happens more these days,
    Hey hey

    I got a lot to give so can't you see
    I'm still breathing an my heart still beats
    They took the car but they left the lease
    Does anybody want what's left of me

    Boarding up the house they left the keys
    For growing on my city rolled up these streets
    I ain't checking out I still got my dreams
    Does anybody want what's left of me Hey Hey

    Well I'm a teacher, I'm a farmer, I'm a union man
    It's getting harder to make a living on this hard land
    We ain't working in our factories all these jobs went overseas
    Hey hey

    Does anybody want, Does anybody want
    Does anybody want what's left of me

    I got a lot to give so can't you see
    I'm still breathing and my heart still beats
    They took the car but they left the lease
    Does anybody want what's left of me

    Does anybody want to buy or rent
    Take the chance or place a bet
    I ain't checking out I still got my dreams
    Does anybody want what's left of me hey hey

    Does anybody want Does anybody want
    Does anybody want what's left of me
    Hey hey, hey hey

    Does anybody want does anybody want
    Does anybody want what's left of me Writer/s: RICHIE SAMBORA, BILLY FALCON, JON BON JOVI
