Bon Jovi What’s Left Of Me Lyrics

For thirty odd years I was a newspaper man

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

I left more in that sand than you’ll ever know

Another war was waiting for me when I got back home

In the name of the flag some 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 say can 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?

Boarded up the house, they left the keys

Foreclosed on my city, rolled up these streets

But 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

Why they sold old CBGB’s I don’t understand

All that’s left now are the t-shirts and they come from Japan

I sold my drums to make ends meet

The band broke up, we had to eat

It’s the same old shit, it just happens more these days,

Hey, hey

I got a lot to give say can 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?

Boarded up the house, they left the keys

Foreclosed on my city, rolled up these streets

But I ain’t checking out, I still got my dreams

Does anybody want what’s left of me?

Hey, hey, hey, hey

I’m a teacher, I’m a farmer, I’m a union man

It’s getting hard to make a living in this hard land

We ain’t working in our factories, all those 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, say can 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 a 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, 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?
