  • Watch my life
    Pass me by
    In the rear view mirror
    Pictures frozen in time
    Are becoming clearer
    I donâ??t wanna waste another day
    Stuck in the shadow of my mistakes

    Yeah

    Cause I want you And I feel you
    Crawling underneath my skin
    Like a hunger like a burning
    To find a place Iâ??ve never been
    Now Iâ??m broken and Iâ??m fading
    Iâ??m half the man I thought I would be
    But you can have whatâ??s left of me

    Iâ??ve been dying inside
    Little by little
    No where to go but going out of my mind
    In endless circles
    Running from myself until
    You gave me a reason for standing still

    And I want you and I feel you
    Crawling underneath my skin
    Like a hunger like a burning
    To find a place Iâ??ve never been
    Now Iâ??m broken and Iâ??m fading
    Iâ??m half the man I thought I would be
    But you can have whatâ??s left of me

    Falling faster
    Barely breathing
    Give me something to believe in
    Tell me itâ??s not all in my head

    Take whatâ??s left of this man
    Make me whole once a gain

    Cause I want you and I feel you
    Crawling underneath my skin
    A hunger like a burning
    To find a place Iâ??ve never been
    Now Iâ??m broken and Iâ??m fading
    Iâ??m half the man I thought I would be
    You can have all thatâ??s left
    Yeah yeah yeah
    Whatâ??s left of me

    Iâ??ve been dying inside you see
    Iâ??m going outta my mind, outta my mind
    Iâ??m just running in circles all the time
    Will you take whatâ??s left,
    Will you take whatâ??s left,
    Will you take whatâ??s left
    Just running in circles in my mind
    Will you take whatâ??s left
    Will you take whatâ??s left
    Will you take whatâ??s left
    Take whatâ??s left of me Writer/s: EMANUEL KIRIAKOU, JESS CLAYTON CATES, LINDY ROBBINS, NICK LACHEY

  • Chelsea from ArizonaIt's ironic because now him and Vanessa are married in real life and have two kids but good for them!
  • Tricia from Rockville Centre, NyThis song ....played out an incident I had recently with an ex that was back and forth and the was preaching and preaching he dont have others...meanwhile I found him meeting someone for a date..and the line "Watched my life pass me by in the rearview mirror" I bet that is how he felt while I was pulling away in my car...so ironic... I hope he feels a shread of guilt cause its true...you dont know what you got till its gone...I agree with Georgina!
  • Jennifer Harris from Grand Blanc, MiI never saw the video.This song reminds me of my ex-fiancee,Trent Edgin. It was playing on the radio at his apt when we were together.Don ,my fiancee says it can be our song.
  • Kayla from Cumberland, Rinick Lachey is hot
  • Mark from Byrdstown, TnGod what a freaking waste of space this entry is.A great songwriter? Wow the bar is certainly low on what the kids these days call 'great'.
  • Georgina from Laredo, TxIf i were jessica the jaws of life could not take nick away from....dont know what you got till its gone
  • Esther from Sauwerd, NetherlandsAnd Vanessa, who's indeed playing Jessica, is now Nick's new girlfriend. =)
  • Hope from Florence, MtI love Nick Lachey! He is a great songwriter (as is Jason Wade the lead singer of Lifehouse). I really like this song and his older song "This I Swear." Now that is a cute love song.
