Lyrics On My Own Les Miserable

Song Lyrics On My Own Les Miserable Movie Sung by Eponine

On my own
Pretending he’s beside me
All alone
I walk with him ’til 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 is 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
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

Lyrics On My Own Les Miserable – Facts About the Song

“On My Own” is a solo part for in the famous play and movie Les Miserables, sung by character Éponine. The refrain of the song is the same tune as that of “Fantine’s Death (Come to Me)”, although it adds a bridge and the tune of the verses are different. Beginning in the key of D, modulating to Bb (even though the song does not actually change key), then ending in F, this is her most important song.
