On my own Pretending he's beside me
All alone I walk with him 'til 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 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
