How can I just let you walk away
Just let you leave without a trace
When I stand here taking every breath with you, oooh
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 share the laughter and the pain, we even shared the tears
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now, 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, 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, there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me
Just a memory of your face
Take a look at me now, there's just an empty space
Well to wait for you well that's all i can do
And that's what i got to face

Take a good look at me now
Cause I'll just be standing here
And you coming back to me is against all odds
That's a chance i got to take

Take a good look at me now
