Against All Odds
by Mariah Carey



How can I just let you walk away
Just let you leave without a trace
When I stand here taking
Every breath with you

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
And there's nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face

Take a look at me now
'Cause 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
'Cause 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
'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 odds
That's the chance I've qot to take

Take a look at me now
