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
There's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face

Well, 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
Take a look at me now

Oh, I wish I could just make you turn around
Turn around to see me cry
There's so much I need to say to you
So many reasons why

'Cause 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
'Cause there's just an empty space
But to wait for you is all I can do
And that's what I've gotta 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 gotta take

Take a look at me now
Take a look at me now
