Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now) 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
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...

    the meaning of this beautiful song, is that losing the one you love can be heart-breaking. you do whatever you can to build back up your confidence, but when you're in the mourning booth (this can count to losing a living loved one you were in a relationship with) there's really nothing you can do to fix it in this state.

    It's about losing someone that you love. You didn't do anything to not let him/her leave and now, you have regrets. This person meant a lot for you because he/she is the only one who really knew you at all.

    This song is about a lady I that truly loved "more than the world" itself. Because times got "tough" and the she was not willing to endure "the storm", the grass looked "greener" on the other side. So she took the "easy way" to success and it failed. However, my endurance and determination to "weather" the storm "paid off"! Now I'm with someone new, different, and is determined for us to be together- "no matter what comes!!! " I have "someone who needs and wants me"!! Patience is a virtue!!!! I'm happy now!!! This could have you.

    This song is about parental alienation and losing your kid/kids as a result.

    This is about losing the woman you love more than the entire world. She's gone. Forever. You'll never have her again, and you want her to look at you so she can see that you need her to be complete. ..I love you Amy and I'm sorry I hurt you like I did...
