BON JOVI - What's Left Of Me Lyrics

For thirty hard years I was a newspaperman
Made my living with a pen and a pad
God, I missed 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 then you'll ever know
Another war's waiting for me when I got back home

In the name of the flags 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'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?

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

They called us Dirty Harry, we're a punk rock band
Why they sold those CBGB's I don't understand
All that's left now are the t-shirts and the call 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'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?

Boarding up the house they left the keys
For growing on my city rolled up these streets
Well, 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 harder 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'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
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?
