Phil Collins - Against all odds
Tekst en muziek: Phil Collins
(1984)






How can I just let you walk away
Just let you leave without a trace
When I stand here taking every breath with you, ooh
You’re the only one who really knew me at all



How can you just walk away from me
When all I can do is watch you leave
’Cause we’ve shared the laughter and the pain
And even shared the tears
You’re the only one who really knew me at all



So, take a look at me now
Oh, there’s just an empty space
There’s nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face



Oh, take a good look at me now
Well, there’s just an empty space
And you coming back to me
Is against the odds
And that’s what I’ve got to face



I wish, I could just make you turn around
Turn around and see me cry
There’s so much I need to say to you
So many reasons why
You’re the only one
Who really knew me at all



So, take a look at me now
Well, there’s just an empty space
And there’s nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face



Now, take a good look at me now
’Cause there’s just an empty space
But to wait for you is all I can do
And that’s what I’ve got to face



Take a good look at me now
’Cause I’ll still be standing here
And you coming back to me
Is against all the odds
It’s the chance I’ve got to take



Take a look at me now
