Watch my life pass me by in a rearview mirror
Pictures frozen in time are becoming clearer
I don't wanna waste another day
Stuck in the shadow of my mistakes
Yeaaahhh

Cause I want you and I feel you crawling underneath my skin
Like a hunger like a burning
To find the place I've never been
Now I'm broken and I'm faded
I'm half the man I thought I would be
But you can have what's left of me

I've been dying inside
Little by little
Nowhere to go going out of my mind
And in endless circle
Running from myself until
You gave me a reason for standing still

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

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

Take what's left of this man
Make me whole once again

Cause I want you and I feel you
Crawling underneath my skin
Like a hunger, like a burning to find a place I've never been
Now I'm broken and I'm faded,
I'm half the man I thought I would be
You can have all that's left
What's left of me

I'm been dying inside you see
I'm going outa my mind, outa my mind
I'm just wandering in circles all the time
Will you take what's left
Will you take what's left
Will you take what's left of me
Just running in circles in my mind
Will you take what's left
Will you take what's left
Will you take what's left of me
Take what's left of me

    This song makes me cry a lot. That wwegirl is me and Bruno is a brace face! anyway this means that someone was broken and that person meant a LOT to him. He doesnt want that person to forget him so he wants to give that person the rest of him to keep. Its so touching ya know! I'm gonna play the movie now... GO NICK LACHEY! ':D

    this song is about someone who's been broken before, and how they met someone new who they want to have the rest of them.
