On my own, pretending youīre beside me

All alone I walked with you till morning

Without you I feel your arms around me

And when I lose my way

I close my eyes and you have found me.

In the rain, the pavement shines like silver

All the nights are misty in the river

In the darkness the trees are full of starlight

And all I see is you and me forever and forever.

And I know itīs only in my mind

That Iīm talking to myself and not to you.

And although I know that you are blind

Still I say thereīs a way for us.

I love you, but when the night is over

You are gone, the riverīs just a river.

Without you the world around me changes

The trees are fair and everywhere

The streets are full of strangers.

I love you, but every day Iīm learning

All my life Iīve only been pretending

Without me your world will go on turning

The world is full of happiness

That I have never known

I love you, I love you, I love you

But only on my own.
