ON MY OWN
my own, pretending youīre beside me
alone I walked with you till morning
you I feel your arms around me
when I lose my way
close my eyes and you have found me.
the rain, the pavement shines like silver
the nights are misty in the river
the darkness the trees are full of starlight
all I see is you and me forever and forever.
I know itīs only in my mind
Iīm talking to myself and not to you.
although I know that you are blind
I say thereīs a way for us.
love you, but when the night is over
are gone, the riverīs just a river.
you the world around me changes
trees are fair and everywhere
streets are full of strangers.
love you, but every day Iīm learning
my life Iīve only been pretending
me your world will go on turning
world is full of happiness
I have never known
love you, I love you, I love you
only on my own.
