Against All Odds
The Postal Service Lyrics


How can I just let you walk away,
Just let you leave without a trace?
When I stand here taking every breath with you, ooh ooh
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
Well 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

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, oh

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

Take a look at me now
Well 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 the odds
And it's what I've got to face
Take a look at me now

'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
Well 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
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, oh
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

Take a good look at me now
'Cause I'll still be standing here
And you coming back to me is against the odds
And it's what I've got to face
Take a look at me now

I spent so many nights listening to this cover over, and over, and over waiting for something to click. I am married now, but the feelings of that time still resonate with this song. I still love it!

HotGarbage

Chad Thompson admirable attempt lad.

Andrew Mendez

I feel you on that.

Infra Minced

This is still such a banger. I haven't listened to this cover in over ten years probably.

Not everyone likes this version, but I do. Mostly because of the instrumentals that convey the overall feeling of the lyrics. That of course is my interpretation, and I already know someone is going to whine about it. If you don’t like this version listen to the original and relax.

Whine Whine Whine just kidding this is a better version than the original

Jon Judice

That bass used to slam in my truck

I'm a bigger fan of Phil Collins than I am of The Postal Service but yes the instruments and the over all feel of the song fits the mood much better in my opinion.
