On My Own ～Eponine, Les Miserables
And now I'm all alone again
Nowhere to go, no one to turn to
I did not want your money, sir,
I came out here 'cos I was told to.
And now the night is near. Now I can make
believe he's here.
Sometimes I walk alone at night
when everybody else is sleeping.
I think of him and then I'm happy
with the company I'm keeping.
The city goes to bed.
And I can live inside my head.
On my own
Pretending he's beside me.
All alone I walk with him till morning.
I feel his arms around me.
And when I lose my way I close my eyes
And he has found me!
In the rain the pavement shines like silver
All the lights are misty in the river
In the darkness the trees are full of startlight
And all I see is him and me forever and forever
And I know it's only in my mind,
That I'm talking to myself and not to him
And, although I know that he is blind,
Still I say there's a way for us!
I love him
But when the night is over
He is gone, the river's just a river
Without him the world around me changes
The trees are bare, and everywhere the streets
are full of strangers.
I love him
But everyday I'm learning
All my life I've only been pretending.
Without me his world will go on turning
The world is full of happiness that I have never known
I love him, I love him, I love him...but only
on my own.
