On My Own
And now I'm all alone again Nowhere to go, no one to turn to Without a home, without a friend Without a face to say hello to And now the night is near and 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 '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
