On My Own

This song is by Glee Cast and appears on the television soundtrack Glee: The Music, The Complete Season One (2010).

This song is a cover of "On My Own" by Claude-Michel Schönberg.
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 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 every day I'm learning
All my life, I've only been pretending
Without me, his world would 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


Original music by Claude-Michel Schönberg, French lyrics by Alain Boublil, English translation by Herbert Kretzmer
