On My Own

This song is by Elaine Paige and appears on the album Encore (1996) and on the compilation album Centre Stage: The Very Best of Elaine Paige (2004).

On my own pretending he's beside me
All alone I walk with him till morning
Without him I feel his arms around
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 starlights
And all I see is him and me
Forever and forever

And I know its 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 everyday 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...
