On My Own

This song is by Samantha Barks and appears on the movie soundtrack Les Misérables: Highlights from the Motion Picture Soundtrack (2012) and on the album Samantha Barks (2016).

Original video
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 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
Oh, my life, I've only been pretending
Without me, his world will go on turning
A world that's full of happiness that I have never known
I love him, I love him, I love him, but only of my own
But only of my own
