AAOScreenshoot1
Album: Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Four
Released: March 18, 2013
By: Phil Collins
Sung by: Blaine Anderson
Place: The April Rhodes Civic Pavilion
Episode: Guilty Pleasures

Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now) by Phil Collins is featured in Guilty Pleasures, the seventeenth episode of Season Four. It is sung by Blaine.

In the auditorium, he begins to play the piano as the light shines down on him as he sings live. The New Directions watch, while Blaine stares emotionally at Sam, indicating his feelings for him. As the emotion is sent out to the audience, Jake can be seen watching Marley and some are teary-eyed. Sam seems to look concerned about Blaine. Towards the ending of the performance, Artie looks at Sam and with the Glee Club applauding, Blaine gives off a sigh. Tina asks who that was about exactly, thinking that it was her, but Kitty tells her to shut it. Blaine lies and says it's about Kurt as the break-up is still a fresh wound, but it's all about the genius of the original artist, Phil Collins.

Blaine continues to talk to the Glee Club about how he was a musical legend and how he is no longer in the closet about his love for him. Sam stands up to clap but his facial expressions tell us he knows something was up with the performance.

Lyrics

Blaine:
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'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
Oh, 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

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

Oh, 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
Now take a look at me now,
'cos there's just an empty space, oh
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 all odds
It's the chance I've got to take
Take a look at me now (Oh, woah)
Take a look at me now
Oh, hmm
