On My Own

Los Miserables

On my own, pretending hes beside me,   
All alone, I walk with him till morning, 
Without him, 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 starlight,
And all I see is him and me forever and forever.

And I know its only in my mind,    
That Im talking to myself and not to him,
And although I know that he is blind,     
Still I say theres a way for us.

love him, but when the night is over,    
He is gone, the rivers 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 every day im learning,
All my life Ive only been pretending,
Without me his world will go on turning,
A world thats full of happiness that I have never known.

 I love him, I love him, I love him,
But only on my own.
