Eponine: On My Own

	And now I'm all alone again
 	Nowhere to turn, no one to go to
	Without a home, without a friend,
	Without a face to say hello to.
	And now the night is near
	Now I can make believe he's here.

	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 for ever 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 every day I'm learning
	All 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 on my own.
