Songinfo

Het nummer dat oorspronkelijk "How Can You Just Sit There?" zou heten, is afkomstig uit sessies van het debuutalbum van Phil Collins: Face Value (1981). Daarbij is het één van de vele nummers geschreven voor zijn ex-vrouw, die hem verliet. Uiteindelijk werd het nummer gekozen voor de soundtrack van de film "Against All Odds" en werd het geproduceerd door Arif Mardin. Het nummer werd volgens Collins in twee dagen opgenomen: één dag in New York, één in Los Angeles

Trivia

Wist je dat? De Amerikaanse zangeres Mariah Carey nam in 2000 haar eigen versie op van het nummer, geproduceerd door Jimmy Jam en Terry Lewis. Later werd het nummer opnieuw opgenomen als duet, samen met de Ierse boyband Westlife. Voor het duet werden de vocalen van Mariah niet opnieuw opgenomen. De instrumenten werden wel opnieuw opgenomen, met meer violen. Het duet was wereldwijd succesvoller dan de soloversie (behalve in Nederland, daar was de soloversie het succesvolst).

Songtekst

How can I just let you walk away,
just let you leave without a trace
When I stand here taking every breath, with you, ohoo
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,
of there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me,
just the memory of your face
oh take a 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 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
It's the chance I've got to take .

Take a look at me now
