Against All Odds

Phil Collins

 

Am                             Bm                       C                       Dm

How can I just let you walk away, let you leave without a trace,

             F                          G                         Em     Am

When I stand here taking every breath with you?  Oooooo.

                   Dm                                    G

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.

 

CHORUS:

                               Dm                                   Gsus4       G

So, take a look at me now, 'cause there's just an empty space.

                              C                Dm                        Am                       F

And there's nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face.

                             Dm                                  Gsus4 G

Take a look at me now, 'cause there's just an empty space.

                             C                 Dm                                  Gsus4                    G

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.

 

CHORUS:  [last line is:]

...But to wait for you, well that's all I can do and that's what I've got to face

 

CHORUS:

Dm                        Gsus4          G

Just take a look at me, now.
