Against All Odds – Postal Service

bridget

In keeping with our inexplicable fondness for Wicker Park (which I’ve never seen), here’s the video for Against All Odds, a Phil Collins cover by Postal Service. Upon the songs’s release in 2007, the New York Post deemed it to be one of the best covers of All Time. Oh, that catchy Postal Service… gotta love it.

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 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
But 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 gotta 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 the memory of your face

But take a look at me now
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 look at me now
I’ll just be standing here
And you coming back to me
Is against the odds
And that’s a chance I’ve gotta face

Take a look at me now
Take a look at me now
(Take a look at me now)
Take a look at me now
(Take a look at me now)
Take a look at me now
(Take a look at me now) [2x]
Take a look at me now
(Take a look at me now) [2x]
Take a look at me now
(Take a look at me now) [2x]
Take a look at me now
(Take a look at me now)
Take a look at me now
