On My Own

And here I am I'm all alone,
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 here,
I can make believe he's near

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 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 myself and not to her
Though she is blind
Still I say their'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 everyday I'm learning
All my life, I've only been pretending
Without me, his world will go on turning
I 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
