How can I just let you walk away
Just let you leave without a trace
When I stand here taking every breath with you, oh
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
Because 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, because there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face

Take a look at me now, because there's just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against all 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, because there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face

Take a look at me now, because there's just an empty space
But to wait for you, well that's all I can do
And that's what I've got to face

Take a good look at me now, because I'll still be standing here
And you coming back to me is against all odds
That's the chance I've got to take, oh, oh

Just take a look at me now

    General CommentThis is an unbelievable version of Phil Collins' original. Gavin is a great singer/piano player.
