On My Own is a song from Les Miserables and one of the most famous besides "I Dreamed a Dream." In the
song, Eponine, the Thenardiers' daughter and Cosette's former stepsister is depressed because her crush on Cosette's true love Marius would never be recoiperated and she knew how life was like for her before she knew Marius.
And now I'm all alone again, nowhere to turn, no one to go to Without a home, without a friend, without a face to say hello 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 headOn my own, pretending he's 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 for ever 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 every day I'm learning All my life I've only been pretending Without me his world will go on turning A world that's full of happiness that I have never known!
I love him I love him I love him But only on my own
