Shane:
How can I just let you walk away,
Just let you leave without a trace,
When I'm standing taking every breath,
With you, ooohhh,
You're the only one who really knew me,
At all.

Mariah:
How can you just walk away from me,
When all I can do is watch you leave,
Cause we 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,
There's just an empty space,
There's nothing left here to remind me,
Just the memory of your face,
So take a look at me now,
Coz there's just an empty space,
And you're coming back to me it's against the odds,
And that's what I've got to face.

Mark:
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.

Mariah:
So take a look at me now,
Well there's just an empty space,
There's nothing left here to remind me,
Just the memory of your face,
So take a look at me now,
So 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,
(Mark: Standing here)
And you coming back to me is against all odds,
And that's a chance I've got to take.

Westlife:
Chance i've got to take
Got to take

Mark:
Take a look at me now.

Mariah:
Ooh
Take a look at me now.

Westlife:
Take a look at me now.
