On My Own Lyrics

On 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 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 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

I absolutely love this song! Everytime I hear it, it's amazing! It's quite an uplifting song! Samantha Barks' version is just beautiful. I can't wait to hear this song in the movie coming out later this year!

This song perfectly describes the Rollercoaster of emotions that ensues when you fall in live with a boy. You start to like him and even love him, and you dream about him, and then the aftermath hits. You face the cold sting of a broken heart. It's like your world fell apart in front of your eyes...

I cried the first time I heard it, it's sooo sad and beauitful. A girl called Cadi (She's in the nativity) is in my stage school and sung it. My bff sings it too! It's going round the school like mad!

This song is so beautiful. It captures perfectly how it feels to know that you love someone but the feeling in unrequited. When sung well, this song can make you cry because it is so beautiful. I love this son and sing it all the time.

I love this song!! I'm going to audition for You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown with this song (and Schroeder of course!) I was in the technical crew when my local theater put this on. I memorized most of the songs. Lol

I take this song to heart and when I heard my singing teacher tell me I had to learn it for my singing exam I said thank you to here because now the person I will always love will get to hear me sing it to him

I still believe Lea Salonga was meant to sing this...Schonberg traveled around the world in 2 years to find the PERFECT girl for this song...and he did.

I've never seen the musical, but from what I've heard, it can and will make everyone and anyone cry. I heard a description from a friend, and i listen to this song. (Lea's version. )She is so innocent

I love this song it is the best song from les mis and the pitch and the warble when singing it just makes me feel alive. This is one of my best songs and if I ever would have the chance to ding that song I would sing it with all my might because I truly love it and the song behind it.
